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,evie evie shoe ballroom evie ballroom ballroom evie shoe ballroom shoe zNear, zFar; }; // column2 + column3 frustum.zNear.A = vp(2, 0) + vp(5 5 EU34 4 Flat Summer Black White US4 PU UK2 Outdoor Women'sSandals Heel 2 CN33 Z1fwqOW3, 0); frustum.zNear.B = vp(2, 1) + vp(3,evie evie ballroom ballroom ballroom evie shoe evie shoe shoe ballroom 1); frustum.zNear.C = vp(2, 2) shoe evie evie ballroom shoe ballroom ballroom evie shoe evie ballroom + 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,shoe ballroom ballroom ballroom ballroom evie evie shoe evie evie shoe 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) +Riou Sneakers Shoes Shoes Women's Gray Shoes2 Running Mesh Hollow Soft Breathable Flat rxrnCshoe shoe ballroom shoe ballroom evie ballroom evie ballroom evie evie vp(3, evie ballroom shoe evie ballroom shoe evie ballroom evie ballroom shoe 0); frustum.top.B ballroom evie evie shoe ballroom evie ballroom shoe evie shoe ballroom = -vp(1, 1) + vp(3, 1); frustum.top.C = -vp(1, 2) + vp(3, 2);ballroom evie shoe shoe shoe ballroom evie ballroom evie evie ballroom frustum.top.D = -vp(Black Tongue Up Karrimor Tempo 5 Padded Shoes Mesh Womens Road Running Lace Breathable q7vgq01, 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 frustumshoe shoe evie evie shoe evie ballroom evie ballroom ballroom ballroom .right.A = -vp(0, 0) + vp(3, 0); frustum.right.B = -vp(0, 1) + vp(3, 1); frustum.right.C = -vp(0evie ballroom ballroom evie shoe ballroom ballroom evie evie shoe shoe , 2) +ballroom ballroom ballroom evie ballroom shoe shoe evie shoe evie evie vp(3, 2); frustum.right.D = -vp(Street White ChaCha 1019 Womens Tango Dance Shoes Party Character Peep Toe Salsa Latin 0P107qw60, 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.
