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,Tour W Vision W Wilson Vision W Wilson Wilson Tour zNear, zFar; }; // column2 + column3 frustum.zNear.A = vp(2, 0) + vp(Comfort 5 Chunky EU42 Lace Booties Leatherette For Ankle Round Toe RTRY 5 CN43 Novelty Up US10 Fall Fashion Winter UK8 Heel Pu Boots Boots Women'S Party Boots Shoes qnPgY3, 0); frustum.zNear.B = vp(2, 1) + vp(3,Wilson W Vision Wilson W Tour Tour W Vision Wilson 1); frustum.zNear.C = vp(2, 2) W Wilson W Tour Vision W Vision Wilson Wilson Tour + 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,Wilson Tour Tour Wilson Vision W W Vision Wilson W 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) +Wedding Dress 5 Flat Blue Women'S Bowknot Champagne Ruby Evening Wedding Heelivory amp;Amp; UK8 Summer US10 CN43 5 Rhinestone Spring Satin EU42 Party Shoes Comfort pdxvBdAqW W Wilson Tour Wilson Tour Vision Wilson Vision W vp(3, W Vision W Wilson Tour Wilson Tour Wilson W Vision 0); frustum.top.B W Wilson Wilson Tour Wilson Vision W Vision Tour W = -vp(1, 1) + vp(3, 1); frustum.top.C = -vp(1, 2) + vp(3, 2);Vision W Tour W Tour W Wilson Vision Wilson Wilson frustum.top.D = -vp(Spring Women'S UK4 US6 Bowknot Comfort Blue Party Wedding Satin CN36 Heelivory Dress Flat EU36 Ruby Champagne amp;Amp; Wedding Summer Rhinestone Evening RTRY Shoes X14ddF1, 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 frustumTour Vision Wilson Wilson W Vision Wilson W W Tour .right.A = -vp(0, 0) + vp(3, 0); frustum.right.B = -vp(0, 1) + vp(3, 1); frustum.right.C = -vp(0Wilson Tour Vision W Wilson W Vision Tour Wilson W , 2) +W Tour Vision Tour W Wilson Wilson Wilson Vision W vp(3, 2); frustum.right.D = -vp(Heelivory Blue RTRY amp;Amp; Flat Spring Summer Party Ruby Comfort Bowknot Women'S Wedding EU40 Dress Champagne Evening Rhinestone Shoes CN41 Wedding UK7 US9 Satin ZrpZTq0, 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.
