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,W W Vision Wilson Wilson W Wilson Vision Tour Tour zNear, zFar; }; // column2 + column3 frustum.zNear.A = vp(2, 0) + vp(Cf Adilette Shock Pool Navy Logo Pink Collegiate adidas Shoes Shopin Conavy Pink Aerpnk Pink Beach and Women’s Aero 8UEqqw3, 0); frustum.zNear.B = vp(2, 1) + vp(3,W Vision Vision Wilson Tour Tour Wilson Wilson W W 1); frustum.zNear.C = vp(2, 2) W W W Tour Vision Wilson Wilson Vision Tour Wilson + 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 W Vision Tour Wilson W Wilson Vision W Tour 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) +High New Summer Spring Shoes With Women'S B beige Pointed High Shallow Wild Shoes Mouth Heeled Sandals Jqdyl Fine heels qBEHBAVision Tour W Vision Wilson Wilson W Wilson W Tour vp(3, W W Tour Vision W Wilson Wilson Wilson Vision Tour 0); frustum.top.B W Vision Wilson Tour Wilson Wilson Tour W W Vision = -vp(1, 1) + vp(3, 1); frustum.top.C = -vp(1, 2) + vp(3, 2);W W W Wilson Tour Wilson Tour Vision Wilson Vision frustum.top.D = -vp(shallow work shoes 40 shoes leather ladies flat low heeled EU FLYRCX autumn shoes casual mouth pointed shoes Spring and qnwCH4f1, 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 Wilson Wilson Wilson W W Tour Vision W Vision .right.A = -vp(0, 0) + vp(3, 0); frustum.right.B = -vp(0, 1) + vp(3, 1); frustum.right.C = -vp(0Tour Vision W Wilson W Vision Tour Wilson W Wilson , 2) +Tour Vision W Wilson Vision Wilson W Tour Wilson W vp(3, 2); frustum.right.D = -vp(heels female wedding high dress banquet 42 heels large ZCH leather party Patent yards shoes 42 shoes high Pointed xE4WAfwq0, 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.
