I am looking the at the D3d 8 sdk documentation for calculating the matrix using D3DXMatrixPerspectiveFovLH. I believe there is an documentation error. Please verify This is the formula from the docs in D3DXMatrixPerspectiveFovLH h = cos(fov/2) / sin(fov/2); w = h / aspect; 2*zn/w 0 0 0 0 2*zn/h 0 0 0 0 zf/(zf-zn) 1 0 0 zn*zf/(zn-zf) 0 The matrix from the function seems to use a different formula (below). h = cos(fov/2) / sin(fov/2) aspect*h 0 0 0 0 h 0 0 0 0 zf/(zf-zn) 1 0 0 zn*zf/(zn-zf) 0 So, is there a documentation error or am I going bonkers (again)??
