    clipping cube

    Hi everybody!

    Hope someone could help with my question. As it's known, by default, OpenGL crops everything outside the cube bounded by planes x={-1,1}, y={-1,1}, z={-1,1}. How could one deal with this, for example, if there is a need to draw something bigger than this cube? Is there any way to scale this cube?

    Read the Viewing chapter in your favorite OpenGL book (for instance, this one), which discusses MODELING, VIEWING, and PROJECTION coordinate space transforms and the intermediate coordinate spaces (OBJECT, WORLD, EYE, and CLIP). This page has a brief overview.

    The cube you speak of is the conceptual bounds of clipping in NDC space, though clipping itself actually happens in the prior coordinate space (CLIP space). The scaling and orientation to fit this cube is done by the previously-mentioned 3 transforms.
