Hi all, I'm kinda confused with how to specify the params p1, p2, p3, p4 for GL_EYE_PLANE. The document says the texture generation function is g = p1'*xe + p2'*ye + p3'*ze + p4'*we( xe, ye, ze and we are vertex coordinates in eye space ) where (p1' p2' p3' p4') = (p1, p2, p3, p4) * inverse(M) (M is opengl modelview matrix) so I guess the params p1, p2, p3 and p4 I specify are in eye space (otherwise why do we have to multiply them by the inverse of opengl modelview matrix? ) If I was correct above, then (p1' p2' p3' p4') would be in object space. But then multiplying eye-space vertex coordinates( xe, ye, ze, we ) does not make sense to me. Can anyone explain that to me? Thanks
