Constructing frustum split from projection matrix

hi there, I have been trying to split a view frustum in half along its z-axis (view direction) by un-projecting corner points from normalized device space into world space.

i.e. the set of points { (-1,-1,0), (1,-1,0), (1,1,0), (-1,1,0) }


But have just realized that the relationship between the z values is non-linear so you can't un-project them in this way. Is there any other way to do this just using the projection matrix rather than having to store fov angles etc. for the frustum?

Solved.

I've just un-projected the 8 corner points of the frustum and linearly interpolated between their 4 adjoining edges (a much simpler solution).
