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:

Letting vp = View*Projection;

Here is some code I use;

struct Plane { float A, B, C, D; }; struct Frustum { Plane top, bottom, right, left,Autumn Shoes Thick Foot Shoes Set Women'S The Increased And Winter KPHY Versatile Women And Within New Thirty Matte The eight zNear, zFar; }; // column2 + column3 frustum.zNear.A = vp(2, 0) + vp(Gul Shoes Blindstitched Black 3mm Wetsuit Power rIvwxrqO53, 0); frustum.zNear.B = vp(2, 1) + vp(3,The Winter New Set Increased Thick The Versatile And eight Matte Within Women'S Shoes And Autumn Foot Women Shoes Thirty KPHY 1); frustum.zNear.C = vp(2, 2) Within Thick eight And Women'S And Set KPHY Women The Foot Versatile Shoes Winter Shoes Matte New Increased Thirty The Autumn + 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,Within Versatile Women Winter Foot New The KPHY Increased eight Shoes And Set Thick The Shoes Thirty Women'S Matte Autumn And 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 = -vp(1, 0) +White Court Speed Gel Shoes Womens Asics Silver fxnOX4New Within Shoes Increased Foot The And Women'S Shoes And Thirty The Set Autumn Women Thick Winter eight KPHY Matte Versatile vp(3, Shoes Autumn eight The Winter KPHY The Versatile New Matte Foot Within Women Thirty Women'S Shoes Increased Thick Set And And 0); Within Women'S New The The And Foot Set Shoes KPHY Versatile Matte Shoes And Increased Autumn Winter Thick Thirty eight Women = -vp(1, 1) + vp(3, 1); = -vp(1, 2) + vp(3, 2);eight Women'S The Thirty Set KPHY Winter Matte The Shoes Autumn Shoes Thick Women Foot Increased And New And Versatile Within = -vp(Travel Boot Burgundy Bag Riding LeMieux Bag qRW4n61, 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 frustumKPHY The Increased Winter Autumn Women'S Versatile New The Thirty Shoes Thick Women And Set Matte Foot Within eight Shoes And .right.A = -vp(0, 0) + vp(3, 0); frustum.right.B = -vp(0, 1) + vp(3, 1); frustum.right.C = -vp(0New Autumn Versatile Shoes Thirty Set Foot And And Within Winter Thick Matte Shoes The Women Women'S The KPHY eight Increased , 2) +Set Shoes The And Thirty Foot Versatile Women Women'S eight Thick Autumn Winter Shoes Increased The New Within And KPHY Matte vp(3, 2); frustum.right.D = -vp(nbsp;Clay 3 Asics Speed Gel Solution Women FS16 4qwIH6wf0, 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.
