Hey guys, I feel dumb, I never think about this much anymore, but I’m trying to work through a problem and I can’t remember the details. DirectX is generally a left handed coord system, right? As such it’s +x to the right, +y up, and +z into the screen, right? Also, the front face of a triangle with a left handed coord system is counter clockwise right?

Yes.

No. In a LHS, a triangle is facing the camera if the vertexes are clockwise. When doing back-face culling, you cull the CCW triangles.
