Converting 3D Coordinates to Screen Coordinates

Recommended Posts

What do you mean by 3D coords?

Untransformed vertex (local coordinates) needs to go through world transformation, view transformation and projection matrices. I don''t have the sdk handy right now but I bet it''s there explained with a lot more details.

i.e i have a tile with local coords (0.1234, 1.4321, 5.1234) and built up with following vertexes (untransformed and unlit)


p1 = D3DXVECTOR3(0,0,0);
p2 = D3DXVECTOR3(3,0,0);
p3 = D3DXVECTOR3(0,0,3);
p4 = D3DXVECTOR3(3,0,3);

so the tile will be

screen

| triangle1<-- | / |
| | / |
| | / | --> triangle 2

| p3 p4
