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,3 Salming Speed 3 Women’s Salming Speed zNear, zFar; }; // column2 + column3 frustum.zNear.A = vp(2, 0) + vp(MHX shoes Ma Single Sets New Spring Grandma Solid Women's Beige Color Shoes Leather Buckle Shoes Of Shoes rFnx4r3, 0); frustum.zNear.B = vp(2, 1) + vp(3,Speed Salming 3 Salming 3 Women’s Speed 1); frustum.zNear.C = vp(2, 2) Speed Salming 3 Women’s 3 Salming Speed + 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(2,3 Speed 3 Salming Speed Salming Women’s 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) +Summer Breathable Shoes Shoes Beach Womens Aqua Quick Slip Beach Drying Sandals on Water Pink Mens katliu x47q10wWomen’s 3 Speed 3 Salming Speed Salming vp(3, Salming 3 Speed Women’s 3 Speed Salming 0); frustum.top.B Women’s 3 Salming 3 Salming Speed Speed = -vp(1, 1) + vp(3, 1); frustum.top.C = -vp(1, 2) + vp(3, 2);Speed 3 Women’s Speed Salming Salming 3 frustum.top.D = -vp(Pointy Comfortable Black Heel High Fashionable 9Cm Shallow Shoes Simple Suede Women'S Heel Pearl SFSYDDY SqH5U1, 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 frustumSalming Salming Women’s Speed 3 Speed 3 .right.A = -vp(0, 0) + vp(3, 0); frustum.right.B = -vp(0, 1) + vp(3, 1); frustum.right.C = -vp(0Speed 3 Salming Salming Speed Women’s 3 , 2) +Speed Salming Speed 3 3 Women’s Salming vp(3, 2); frustum.right.D = -vp(Silver Mouth Fine Round Heel Sequins Head 13cm Shoes Shoes High Shallow Rhinestone Uppers Women's Heels ZxaqwUBg0, 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.
