Getting transformed vertex coords

How do I get the transformed vertex coordanites after calling glTranslate*() and glRotate*(). I need something like this:
xtranformed = transform_vertex_x(x, y, z);
ytranformed = transform_vertex_y(x, y, z);
ztranformed = transform_vertex_z(x, y, z);
where x, y, and z is the vertex that I want to be transformed. Can I just multiply it by the current model matrix? If so, how do I do that? thanks

gluUnProject gives you vertex coords from screen coords, not vertex coords transformed by the modelview matrix.

Your best bet is probably to use glGetFloatv to get the modelview matrix and manually multiply your vertices by the matrix to transform them. Unfortunately, this involves writing matrix/vector multiplication code if you don't already have it.

Good luck.

You can recover the transformation matrices with glGet.

double array[16];
glGetDoublev( GL_MODELVIEW_MATRIX, array );

Then do a multiplication.

Be careful though, IIRC, the matrices returned are transposed

0 4 8 12
1 5 9 13
2 6 10 14
3 7 11 15
