Calculates the dot product between the normal vector of a plane and a 3D vector.
XMVECTOR XM_CALLCONV XMPlaneDotNormal( FXMVECTOR P, FXMVECTOR V );
XMVECTOR describing the plane coefficients (A, B, C, D) for the plane equation
XMVECTOR vectorOut; vectorOut.x = P.x * V.x + P.y * V.y + P.z * V.z; vectorOut.y = P.x * V.x + P.y * V.y + P.z * V.z; vectorOut.z = P.x * V.x + P.y * V.y + P.z * V.z; vectorOut.w = P.x * V.x + P.y * V.y + P.z * V.z; return vectorOut;
3D vector to use in the dot product. The w component of V is always treated as if is 0.0f.
Returns the dot product between the normal vector of the plane and V replicated into each of the four components of the returned XMVECTOR.
This function is useful for calculating the angle between the normal vector of the plane, and another normal vector. The following pseudocode demonstrates the operation of the function.
