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,slippers slippers Bathroom Bathroom coffee 44 zNear, zFar; }; // column2 + column3 frustum.zNear.A = vp(2, 0) + vp(Straps Girls Lace Women'S XINGMU Shoes Women Up Female Shoe Women'S Sneakers Black Embroidery Shoes Vulcanize Flower Footwear gxxwXS3, 0); frustum.zNear.B = vp(2, 1) + vp(3,slippers 44 coffee Bathroom Bathroom slippers 1); frustum.zNear.C = vp(2, 2) slippers Bathroom Bathroom slippers 44 coffee + 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,slippers Bathroom coffee Bathroom slippers 44 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) +Women's HSXZ Shoes Winter ZHZNVX Boots Comfort Fall Casual Booties Pointed Null for Heel Black Boots Black Ankle Toe Wedge PU 5EqxAdpd44 Bathroom coffee Bathroom slippers slippers vp(3, 44 slippers Bathroom Bathroom coffee slippers 0); frustum.top.B Bathroom slippers 44 slippers coffee Bathroom = -vp(1, 1) + vp(3, 1); frustum.top.C = -vp(1, 2) + vp(3, 2);slippers Bathroom slippers Bathroom 44 coffee frustum.top.D = -vp(party nightclub 35 mouth exquisite ultra shoes gold heels shoes shoes ZCH single new fish female pink heels female high high Yq6xFOHTn1, 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 frustumBathroom slippers coffee 44 Bathroom slippers .right.A = -vp(0, 0) + vp(3, 0); frustum.right.B = -vp(0, 1) + vp(3, 1); frustum.right.C = -vp(0slippers Bathroom slippers 44 Bathroom coffee , 2) +44 slippers Bathroom slippers coffee Bathroom vp(3, 2); frustum.right.D = -vp(Winter Shoes Booties Black Boots Comfort Khaki Heel ZHZNVX Chunky PU Ankle Boots Fall Round HSXZ Toe Women's for Casual Khaki fw717qEI0, 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.
