hello, in GLSL how can i create a modelviewmatrix from a camerapoint and a targetpoint. (and possibly upvector) the two points are given as vec3. (pretty much the same as gluLookAt does) thanks!

You need to have a look at the source code. This is my own version of gluLookAt.
camerapoint is eyePosition3D
and
target would be center3D
Of course, you need to supply a upVector.


void glhLookAtf2(GLfloat *matrix, GLfloat *eyePosition3D, GLfloat *center3D, GLfloat *upVector3D)
{
GLfloat forward[3], side[3], up[3];
GLfloat matrix2[16], constant, resultMatrix[16];

forward[0]=center3D[0]-eyePosition3D[0];
forward[1]=center3D[1]-eyePosition3D[1];
forward[2]=center3D[2]-eyePosition3D[2];
NormalizeVectorFLOAT_1(forward, &constant);

//Side = forward x up
ComputeNormalOfPlaneFLOAT_2(side, forward, upVector3D);
NormalizeVectorFLOAT_1(side, &constant);

//Recompute up as: up = side x forward
ComputeNormalOfPlaneFLOAT_2(up, side, forward);

matrix2[0]=side[0];
matrix2[4]=side[1];
matrix2[8]=side[2];
matrix2[12]=0.0;

matrix2[1]=up[0];
matrix2[5]=up[1];
matrix2[9]=up[2];
matrix2[13]=0.0;

matrix2[2]=-forward[0];
matrix2[6]=-forward[1];
matrix2[10]=-forward[2];
matrix2[14]=0.0;

matrix2[3]=matrix2[7]=matrix2[11]=0.0;
matrix2[15]=1.0;

MultiplyMatrices4by4OpenGL_FLOAT(resultMatrix, matrix, matrix2);
glhTranslatef2(resultMatrix, -eyePosition3D[0], -eyePosition3D[1], -eyePosition3D[2]);

memcpy(matrix, resultMatrix, 16*sizeof(GLfloat));
}

because i would like to do it in GLSL and there is no glulookat as far as i know.


huh? Why would you want to do it in GLSL?

because i would like to generate a depthmap for shadow mapping in ATIs rendermonkey software. and there you dont have access to the fixed function pipeline, only to the shaders, afaik.
