Here is my problem: I apply several translations and rotations, and several PushMatrix operations, and I draw a single point at (x,y,z). What i would like to know is how to get the position of that point after i have popped all the matrices that i pushed. i.e i want the resultant x,y,z position that all the transformations had on the initial point. for example if i do glTranslate(0, 5, 0); glVertex(3, 5, 2); i want to be able to get the point (3, 10, 2), ie the point relative to my starting situation before all the transforms. Any help would be much appreciated.

i think you can get the modelview matrix and do something like:

glGetFloatv( GL_MODELVIEW_MATRIX, &Matrix );
RealPoint = Matrix * Point;
