Plane.Transform Method ()

Transforms a plane by a matrix.

Overload List

public void Transform(Matrix);
public static Plane Transform(Plane, Matrix);


The input matrix is the inverse transpose of the actual transformation.


This C# code example transforms a plane by applying a non-uniform scale.

Plane   planeNew;
Plane plane = new Plane(0, 1, 1, 0);
plane = Plane.Normalize(plane);

Matrix  matrix;
matrix = Matrix.Scaling(1.0f, 2.0f, 3.0f); 
matrix = Matrix.Invert(matrix);
planeNew = Plane.Transform(plane, matrix);

A plane is described by ax + by + cz + dw = 0. The first plane is created with (a, b, c, d) = (0, 1, 1, 0), which is a plane described by y + z = 0. After scaling, the new plane contains (a, b, c, d) = (0, 0.353f, 0.235f, 0), which shows the new plane to be described by 0.353y + 0.235z = 0. The parameter m contains the inverse transpose of the transformation matrix. The inverse transpose is required by this method so that the normal vector of the transformed plane can be correctly transformed as well.
