Unless one of your friends has a drinking problem, in which case substitute matrix for rabid badger. I am almost sure there was never a mention of badgers, rabid or otherwise, in the Star Trek pantheon. Ra is shorthand for our 2D rotation matrix. Although matrices might look busy, they are actually pretty straightforward and easy to code because they follow precise patterns. In this case, x and y can be represented as a teeny matrix: ⎡ x'⎤ ⎡cos(a ) − sin( a )⎤ ⎡ x ⎤ ⎢ y '⎥ = ⎢ sin(a ) cos(a) ⎥ ⎢ y ⎥ ⎣ ⎦ ⎣ ⎦⎣ ⎦ Translations can also be encoded in a matrix form.

That makes for a very nice matrix, a lovely one at that: ⎡a T = ⎢⎢ c ⎢⎣ e b d f ⎡a b 0⎤ 0⎤ ⎢ ⎥ ⎥ 0⎥ so [x' y' 1] = ⎢c d 0⎥[x y 1] ⎢⎣e f 1⎥⎦ 1⎥⎦ The following is a simple code segment that shows how to use AffineTransform both for translation and for scaling. As you can see, it is pretty straightforward. setTransform(transform); } } Scaling Of the other two transforms, let’s just take a look at the scaling, or simple resizing, of an object: x'= xSx and y = ySy In matrix form, this becomes as follows: ⎡S x ⎢ S =⎢ 0 ⎢⎣ 0 0 Sy 0 0⎤ ⎥ 0⎥ 1⎥⎦ With scaling, as with the other two transformations, the order is very important when applied to your geometry.

In graphics, the viewing frustum defines the portion of the world that our virtual camera can actually see, as shown in Figure 3–3. CHAPTER 3: From 2D to 3D: Adding One Extra Dimension Figure 3–3. Viewing frustum Unlike a number of things in OpenGL, the definition of the viewing frustum is very straightforward and follows the conceptual figures closely by simply defining a volume, the viewing pyramid, in space. Any objects that are whole or in part within the frustum may eventually find their way to the screen as long as it is not obscured by anything closer.
