Im looking for a site with a good explaination of how the worldview and model view matrices work etc etc. any explainations would help so far all i can tell you about them is they get on my nervs and make 0 sense. also is it commin to rotat the world around the camera intead of moving and rotating the camera around the world? and if so WHY? that just seems like a good way to make things more confusing. thanks alot for the help =P

get a simple geometry book, or robotics is quite good, kinematics. And look at what a matrix is exactly, it aint just a bunch of numbers in a square. There is a logical way that they can hold scale, translation, rotation informatioon in them etc.

I'm a beginner and I found a really good matrix FAQ at http://skal.planet-d.net/demo/matrixfaq.htm. I hope this helps! http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif
