Hi guys,

I've only been using vertex programs for about 12 hours now... So bare with me.

My current goal is to start with a vertex of coordinate (0,0,1).

The vertex program will accept only a pair of texture coordinates. From this I want to use the XTestureCoord to rotate the vertex around the X-axis and same with the Y.

In other words:

1. Defined initial position of vertex (0,0,1).

2.Supplied texture coordinates.

3.rescale texcoord range from 0->1 to -0.5->0.5.

4.Rotate X axis by XTex*90degrees. (ie: somewhere along the 90degree arc - +/-45degrees.

5.Rotate Y axis by YTex*90degrees.

6.Output result as both the new position and the new normal. (Will be unit lenth I presume)

I conceptually understand everything I need EXCEPT steps 4/5. How would I do this? I'm not even sure where to start.

Thanks in advance.
