Exploring the Third Dimension

  • Harrison Kinsley

You’ve seen how to take a point in three-dimensional space and project it onto the screen so that it can be rendered. Projection is only part of the process of rendering a 3D scene; you also need to manipulate the points in the game to update the scene from frame to frame. This chapter introduces the matrix, which is a kind of mathematical shortcut used to manipulate the position and orientation of objects in a game.
