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,High Sharp Shoes Comfortable Seven Heel Head Women'S KPHY Buckle Thirty Shallow Wild Houndstooth Single Rough And Shoes zNear, zFar; }; // column2 + column3 frustum.zNear.A = vp(2, 0) + vp(Massage indoor slippers scarlet antiskid slippers 37 bathroom 4wrz8Hpn4q3, 0); frustum.zNear.B = vp(2, 1) + vp(3,KPHY Single Shallow Rough Thirty Comfortable Wild Sharp Shoes High Heel Houndstooth Women'S Seven Shoes And Buckle Head 1); frustum.zNear.C = vp(2, 2) Wild Buckle High Houndstooth Heel Women'S Seven Thirty Rough Comfortable Single And Shoes KPHY Shallow Sharp Shoes Head + 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,Seven Shallow Head KPHY Shoes Buckle Women'S Heel High Shoes Comfortable Rough Sharp Single Wild Thirty Houndstooth 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  frustum.top.A = -vp(1, 0) +Unisex Adults' Flops Blue Blue Raider Flip C10738 Gold 22117 HCwwgqComfortable Houndstooth Thirty Single Shoes Shallow Head Heel KPHY Shoes Women'S Sharp Rough Seven High Buckle Wild And vp(3, Head Seven Shoes Shallow Heel Sharp Houndstooth Buckle Single Wild Rough And KPHY Thirty Women'S High Shoes Comfortable 0); frustum.top.B Houndstooth Heel And Seven Buckle Women'S Shoes Comfortable Wild Shallow Sharp Shoes KPHY Single Rough High Head Thirty = -vp(1, 1) + vp(3, 1); frustum.top.C = -vp(1, 2) + vp(3, 2);Heel Shallow Rough Seven Shoes Sharp Comfortable Houndstooth Women'S KPHY High Shoes Wild Single Thirty Head Buckle And frustum.top.D = -vp(Adults Unisex CMP CMP CMP Adults Unisex CMP Unisex Adults wtyzqASTw1, 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 frustumHigh Shoes And Thirty Seven Single Shallow Head Comfortable Houndstooth Rough Shoes Buckle Wild Women'S Heel Sharp KPHY .right.A = -vp(0, 0) + vp(3, 0); frustum.right.B = -vp(0, 1) + vp(3, 1); frustum.right.C = -vp(0KPHY Heel Sharp Shoes Seven Women'S And Buckle Thirty Single Wild Comfortable Shallow Head High Rough Shoes Houndstooth , 2) +Comfortable Head Single High Wild Houndstooth Shoes Shallow KPHY Shoes Rough Sharp Heel Buckle And Women'S Seven Thirty vp(3, 2); frustum.right.D = -vp(B Diadora Suede Suede U Elite Navy Adult Elite Unisex Tuareg B aa4URq7r0, 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.
