Hi, i need to do it for bump mapping because the normals of the bump map never change is we don't transform them when the mesh moves. How can i transform a normal ?

ok thanks guys



Note that on some nVidia drivers there is a bug where gl_Normal is actually transformed already.

gl_Normal = gl_Normal * gl_NormalMatrix;

i think thats the right way


Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the order matters here, so that should be:


vec3 normal = gl_NormalMatrix * gl_Normal;
