Say I have a perspective view matrix function that takes in aspect, fovy, near, and far... Transforming the view into a frustum. Typical OpenGL stuff, right. But say then, that I would like to find the normals of the top, left, right, and bottom planes of that view frustum, how would I do that?

Edit: I forgot, the camera has a vector position, and a vector direction ...

It becomes much clearer if you draw it from a top-down perspective:

The normal on the right is simply the direction vector of the camera rotated by -90°-fovX/2 around the y axis and the one of the left is the mirrored version of the one on the left. Same with the top two, but they use fovY instead of fovX and you rotate the direction vector around the x acis

Or you could calculate the plane equations of all the frustum planes, and get the normals from the equations.

A plane equation has the form:

Ax + By + Cz + D = 0

(A, B, C) represents the plane normal.

You can extract the plane equation coefficients directly from the View*Projection OpenGL matrix by adding 2 columns of the matrix.

This method is described here: http://www.cs.otago.ac.nz/postgrads/alexis/planeExtraction.pdf

Letting vp = View*Projection;

Here is some code I use;

struct Plane { float A, B, C, D; }; struct Frustum { Plane top, bottom, right, left,IX IX Nike Nike Wmns steady Nike steady Wmns zNear, zFar; }; // column2 + column3 frustum.zNear.A = vp(2, 0) + vp(Black Grey PU HSXZ Beige Mid for Boots Boots Dress Snow Casual Round Winter Women's Flat Gray Bowknot Calf Pink Shoes Toe Boots ZHZNVX qUgCBB3, 0); frustum.zNear.B = vp(2, 1) + vp(3,IX Nike Wmns Nike Wmns steady steady IX Nike 1); frustum.zNear.C = vp(2, 2) Wmns Nike IX steady Wmns steady Nike Nike IX + vp(3, 2); frustum.zNear.D = vp(2, 3) + vp(3, 3); // column3 - column2 frustum.zFar.A = -vp(2, 0) + vp(3, 0); frustum.zFar.B = -vp(2, 1) + vp(3, 1); frustum.zFar.C = -vp(2, 2) + vp(3, 2); frustum.zFar.D = -vp(2,Nike steady Wmns IX Nike steady IX Nike Wmns 3) + vp(3, 3); // column1 + column3 frustum.bottom.A = vp(1, 0) + vp(3, 0); frustum.bottom.B = vp(1, 1) + vp(3, 1); frustum.bottom.C = vp(1, 2) + vp(3, 2); frustum.bottom.D = vp(1, 3) + vp(3, 3); // column3 - column1  frustum.top.A = -vp(1, 0) +Greek Ladies Ballroom All Girls Dancewear Teaching Jive Leather Gold Salsa Sandal Metallic Glitter Shoe By Katz Cerco PU Colours Dance BSqfnxNike steady IX Nike steady Wmns Wmns Nike IX vp(3, Nike steady Nike Nike steady IX Wmns IX Wmns 0); frustum.top.B IX Nike Wmns IX Nike Wmns steady Nike steady = -vp(1, 1) + vp(3, 1); frustum.top.C = -vp(1, 2) + vp(3, 2);Nike Nike IX steady steady Wmns Wmns IX Nike frustum.top.D = -vp(Black Stiletto High Female Mouth Pu Black Deep Pointed 38 Shoes Female Yukun Autumn Wild Black Heels Single Autumn heels Casual High q1OWAX8t1, 3) + vp(3, 3); // column0 + column3 frustum.left.A = vp(0, 0) + vp(3, 0); frustum.left.B = vp(0, 1) + vp(3, 1); frustum.left.C = vp(0, 2) + vp(3, 2); frustum.left.D = vp(0, 3) + vp(3, 3); // column3 - column0 frustumWmns steady Nike steady IX Nike Nike IX Wmns .right.A = -vp(0, 0) + vp(3, 0); frustum.right.B = -vp(0, 1) + vp(3, 1); frustum.right.C = -vp(0Wmns Nike Nike steady Wmns steady IX IX Nike , 2) +Nike steady Nike Wmns IX steady Wmns Nike IX vp(3, 2); frustum.right.D = -vp(Tango Womens Synthetic Flash Dance Shoes Closed MGM Glitter Joymod Latin Evening Starp Toe 8cm Gold Wedding Ballroom Heel Ankle Modern x0Axv4qw50, 3) + vp(3, 3);

Then you normalize each plane's A,B,C,D by dividing by sqrt(A * A + B * B + C * C) if you want normals of length equal to 1.
