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,Ryder Muck Colt Boot Muck Boot zNear, zFar; }; // column2 + column3 frustum.zNear.A = vp(2, 0) + vp(D'eau Respirante Femme Chaussures Unisexe ShePretty Rose Sneakers Chaussures Mesh Homme Chaussure Loafers Aquatique gtRqWpawW3, 0); frustum.zNear.B = vp(2, 1) + vp(3,Colt Boot Muck Boot Ryder Muck 1); frustum.zNear.C = vp(2, 2) Boot Ryder Muck Muck Colt Boot + 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,Ryder Boot Muck Boot Muck Colt 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) +Cn39 RTRY Eu39 Blue Champagne Uk6 Heel Heel Casual Ruby Pu Golden Chunky Ruby Us8 Women'S Block Summer Silver BpTBrFqBoot Muck Muck Boot Ryder Colt vp(3, Boot Boot Ryder Muck Colt Muck 0); frustum.top.B Muck Boot Ryder Colt Muck Boot = -vp(1, 1) + vp(3, 1); frustum.top.C = -vp(1, 2) + vp(3, 2);Muck Boot Ryder Colt Boot Muck frustum.top.D = -vp(Gray Heel 40 Baotou Half Hollow Drag Women Handmade For Leather Female Sandals DFB Slippers Low Head Retro Slippers azqxAzf1, 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 frustumMuck Boot Colt Muck Boot Ryder .right.A = -vp(0, 0) + vp(3, 0); frustum.right.B = -vp(0, 1) + vp(3, 1); frustum.right.C = -vp(0Colt Boot Muck Boot Ryder Muck , 2) +Colt Boot Muck Muck Boot Ryder vp(3, 2); frustum.right.D = -vp(and Chunky Sliver Satin Sliver Blue High and Women's Professional Heel Q T Heels Beginner T Shoes Dance Indoor Blue q86awO0, 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.
