I'm trying to translate a simple triangle using the d3dx methods. The scaling and rotation seem to work but for some crazy reason the translate doesn't. here is basically what I am doing:

// create a rotation matrix
D3DXMatrixRotationY(&matRotate, D3DXToRadian(180.0f));

// create a translation matrix
D3DXMatrixTranslation(&matTrans, 10.0f, 2.0f, 0.0f);

// create a view matrix
&D3DXVECTOR3(1.5f, 0.5f, 1.5f), // the camera position
&D3DXVECTOR3(0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f), // the look-at position
&D3DXVECTOR3(0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f)); // the up direction

// create a projection matrix
(FLOAT)D3DXToRadian(45), // field of view
1.0f, // near view-plane
100.0f); // far view-plane

// create the final transform
matFinal = matRotate *matTrans* matView * matProjection;

devcon->UpdateSubresource(pCBuffer, 0, 0, &matFinal, 0, 0);

Edit: Nevermind I got it to work... I was going out of bounds when translating it.
