Fast Extraction of Viewing Frustum Planes from the World ViewProjection Matrix Authors in alphabetical order Gil Gribb Klaus Hartmann ggribb ravensoftcom k hartmann osnabrueck netsurfde 1 Introduction We present an algorithm for extracting the six viewing frustum planes directly from the combined world view and projection matrices The algorithm is fast accurate and general It allows one to quickly determine the frustum planes in camera space world space or object space The paper is divided into two main chapters The first chapter quotPlane Extraction in Direct3D shows how to extract the viewing frustum planes in Direct3D and the second chapter quotPlane Extraction in OpenGLquot shows how to do the same in OpenGL In addition there are two appendices Appendix A reviews some of the maths behind plane equations and Appendix B contains sample implementations of the plane extraction algorithm for both Direct3D and OpenGL We hope you enjoy this short paper Gil Gribb Klaus Hartmann 06152001 2 Plane Extraction in Direct3D We start off by extracting the frustum planes from the projection matrix only That is the world and view matrices are both identity matrices This means that the camera is located at the origin of the world coordinate system and we are looking along the positive zaxis Let V x y Z w 1 be a vertex and let M my be a 4X 4projection matrix Transforming the vertex V with the matrix M results in the transformed vertex V 39 x y 239 w This can be written as T T xmnym21zm31wm41 Vocol1 VvVM3xv yr Zr WV xMZy39m22Z39m32w39m42 v6012 cm13ym23zm33wm43 Vocol3 xmmym24zm34wm44 Vocol4 where 0 denotes the dot product and col j m1 j m2 m3 m denotes the vector represented by the jm column of matrix M For example V 0 col2 denotes the dot product of Vwith the vector represented by the 2nd column of matrix M After this transformation the vertex V39 is in homogeneous clipping space In this space the viewing frustum actually is an axisaligned box whose size is APTspecific If vertex V 39 is inside this box then the untransformed vertex V is inside the 39untransformed39 viewing frustum Using Direct3D the vertex V 39 is inside the box if the following inequalities are all true for the components of V39 w39 lt x lt w w lt y lt w 0 lt z lt w There are a couple conclusions we can draw from these inequalities They are listed in the following table If w lt x then 39 is in the insidehalfspace of the left clipping plane If x lt w then is in the insidehalfspace of the right clipping plane If w lt y then is in the insidehalfspace of the bottom clipping plane If y lt w then is in the insidehalfspace of the top clipping plane If 0 lt 239 then 39 is in the insidehalfspace of the near clipping plane NN lt ltgtltgtlt If 239 lt w then is in the insidehalfspace of the far clipping plane Now suppose that we wanted to test if x is in the insidehalfspace of the left clipping plane This is the case if the following inequality is true w lt x Using the information from the beginning of this chapter we can rewrite this inequality as v o 0014 lt V0 coll This in turn is equal to 0 lt V00014Vocoll And finally 0 lt Vocol4 0011 This already represents the plane equation for the left clipping plane of the 39untransformed39 viewing frustum xm14 mn ym24 m21 zm34 m31 wm44 m 0 Since w l we can simplify this as follows xm14 mnym24 m21zm34 m31m44 m 0 This gives a standard plane equation axbyczd 0 where am14m119 bm24m21a cm34m319 dm44m41 We have now shown that the left clipping plane of the viewing frustum can be directly extracted from the projection matrix It is important to note that the resulting plane equation is not normalized ie the plane s normal vector is not a unit vector and that the normal vector is pointing to the inside halfspace This means that 0 lt ax by CZ d if the vertex V is in the inside halfspace of the left clipping plane We can now repeat the above steps for the other inequalities to determine the plane equations for the remaining clipping

is to make the algorithm work for an arbitrary view This is in fact so easy that it s almost unbelievable If you think about it for a moment then you ll immediately understand it and that s why we are not going to explain this in any great detail All we are giving to you is this 1 If the matrixM is equal to the projection matrix P ie M P then the algorithm gives the clipping planes in view space ie camera space 2 If the matrixMis equal to the combined view and projection matrices then the algorithm gives the clipping planes in world space ie M V P where V is the view matrix and P is the projection matrix 3 If the matrix Mis equal to the combined world view and projection matrices then the algorithm gives the clipping planes in object space ie M W V P where W is the world matrix V is the view matrix and P is the projection matrix 4 and so on 3 Plane Extraction in OpenGL We start off by extracting the frustum planes from the projection matrix only That is the modelview matrix is an identity matrix This means that the camera is located at the origin of the world coordinate system and we are looking along the positive zaxis Let V x y Z w1T be a vertex and let M my be a

and modelview matrices then the algorithm gives the clipping planes in model space ie V P M where V is the modelview matrix and P is the projection matrix Appendix A Plane Equations Given a fixed pointp and a nonzero normal vector 11 a plane is defined as the set of all points X x y Z such that nox p 0 In English that means that the vector from pto any point X is orthogonal perpendicular to the plane s normal vector 11 if the point X is on the plane Remember that the dot product of two vectors is zero if the angle between those two vectors is 90 degrees We are now going to bring the plane equation 11 0 X p 0 into another form nox p0 ls equal to nx np0 If n a b c then we can rewrite the above as axbycz nop 0 The term n 0 p is constant and we now define that d n 0 p Thus the plane equation becomes axbyczd 0 It should be noted that many people prefer to use the form ax by CZ d In this case the constant 61 is defined as d nop For use in a computer language we can store such a plane equation in a simple structure struct Plane float a b C d l A1 Halfspaces A plane cuts threedimensional space into two separate parts These parts are called halfspaces The halfspace the plane s normals vector points into is called the positive halfspace and the other halfspace is called the negative halfspace A2 Normalizing the Plane Equation Normalizing a plane equation ax bycz d 0 means to change the plane equation such that the normal vector 11 a b 0 becomes a unit vector ie 1 All we need to do to normalize a vector is to divide each of its components by the magnitude of the vector However in order to normalize a plane equation it is not enough to simply divide the coefficients a b c by the magnitude of the normal vector 11 We also need to divide the constant 61 by the magnitude of the normal vector 11 n o x p 0 First we normalize n by dividing its components by the magnitude of n moo pm ll39I nxJt upio This is equal to If n a b c then we can rewrite the above as ixiyiz iop 0

plane equation we need to divide the coefficients a bc and the constant 61 by the 0 magnitude of the normal vector 11 a b c It is useful to have a function that does this for you void

a Point It is more than often necessary to compute the shortest signed distance from a given plane CDC by CZ d 0 to a point p x y Z As it turns out we can simply plug the coordinates of the point p into the plane equation and the result is the signed distance from the plane top This distance however is not necessarily a 39true39 distance Instead it is the signed distance in units of the magnitude of the plane s normal vector 11 a b c So in order to obtain a 39true39 distance you need to normalize the plane equation float DistanceToPointconst Plane amp plane const Point amp pt return planeaptx planebpty planecptz planed If the plane equation is not normalized then we can still get some valuable information from the 39non true distance dist 1 If dist lt 0 then the point p lies in the negative halfspace 2 If dist 0 then the point p lies in the plane 3 If dist gt 0 then the point p lies in the positive halfspace This gives us another useful function that also works for

Direct3D Note that the normal vectors of the resulting planes are pointing to the inside of the viewing frustum If you prefer planes where the normal vectors are pointing to the outside then all you need to do is to negate the coefficients a b c and the constant d of each plane equation 31 Plane Extraction for OpenGL struct Matrix4x4 The elements of the 4x4 matrix are stored in column major order
