3D Clipping
Question submitted by (19 July 1999)

Return to The Archives
  I am trying to program a (glide) 3D-Game in C++, but I can't get the clipping described in the issue 03 (http://www.flipcode.com/portal/issue03.htm) written. I can program c++, but I don't know much about these mathematics (I'm 15 years old). I read so much about clipping, but everybody says "Oh, this is easy, just do it like ...", but nobody gives me the formulas I need. Please help me and give me a piece of code!  

  I wrote a document that describes a 3D perspective clipper. I covered the math so that you need very little knowledge of vectors & matrices (yet some knowledge is still required.)

You can find it here.
