The device already transforms the world coordinates into the windows control coordinate. But what if I want to transform a coordinate from the 2d control to 3d world space? Thanks, Devin

A 2D coordinate (such as a mouse click location) actually generates a "ray" in 3D space - effectively an infinite number of points along a defined line from the near plane to the far plane.

You can use the D3DXVec3Unproject() function to take the various matrices and coordinates and produce a ray iirc.

Super, thanks. I was wondering, which matrices to I unproject? I see in the device that there are several matrices. Are all of the used during the scene?
