WorldViewProj Matrices

Recommended Posts

Okay I made this program that takes a single triangle and spins it about the x axis using the fixed function pipeline. All fine and dandy. Then I converted it to a vertex shader and now its not so fine. It does the color part of the VS properly but the matrices it uses gets a little screwed up. Instead of rotating the triangle about its y axis (so you see a spinning triangle) it looks as though the triangle is spinning around the camera with a radius about as big as big as how far back my eye is. wierd. anyway here is the code that sets up my matrices and VS constant:
  HRESULT SetupMatrices(const DWORD &delta)
	//world matrix

	D3DXMATRIX matWorld;
    UINT  iTime  = timeGetTime() % 4000;
    FLOAT fAngle = iTime * (2.0f * D3DX_PI) / 4000.0f;
    D3DXMatrixRotationY( &matWorld, fAngle );	

	//view matrix

	D3DXMATRIX matView;
	D3DXMatrixLookAtLH( &matView
		, &D3DXVECTOR3( 0.0f, 0.0f,-5.0f )		//eye

		, &D3DXVECTOR3( 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f )		//at

		, &D3DXVECTOR3( 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f ) );	//up

	//projection matrix

	D3DXMATRIX matProj;
	D3DXMatrixPerspectiveFovLH( &matProj
		, D3DXToRadian( 45 )
		, 4/3
		, 1.0f
		, 100.0f);

	//setup vertexshader clipping matrix

	D3DXMATRIX matClip;
	D3DXMatrixTranspose( &matClip, &(matWorld * matView * matProj) );
	g_pD3DDevice->SetVertexShaderConstantF(0, (FLOAT*)matClip, 4);
	return S_OK;
Here is my VertexShader:

//      reg c0-3	= WorldViewProj matrix

//	    reg v0		= position register

//		reg v1		= color register


vs_1_1					//Shader version 1.1		

dcl_position v0			//declare position

dcl_color v1			//declare color

m4x4 oPos, v0, c0		//position the vertex

mov oD0, v1				//output vertex color from input (untouched)

Nevermind. It was working just how it was supposed to. I forgot that for some reason, I set the z value of the vertices to 5. Set it back to 0 and it spins like a top.
