HY.
I'm using opengl for drawing a line and I have a line from point 1(0,0,0) to point 2(10,2,1) i would decrease the length of the line to the 50% .
where i move the second point?
thanks.

You move it to the midpoint between the two points, which is the point that has in each coordinate the average of the corresponding numbers in the two points, (5,1,0.5).

p1 = (0,0,0);
p2 = (10,10,5);

v = p2 - p1;

v = v * 0.5; // <---- 50 %

n = p1 + v; // new position (5,5,2.5)
