Hi all...

Can anyone help me find the line-plane intersection answer?

I have looked a bit at the web and a lot are presenting the formulas involved, but I need to know what elements within the formula mean...as an example, I need the technique in knowing :

how to find the point of intersection, if I know the points on a line,

L1(x , y , z) and L2(x , y , z) and

I think I know how to get the information for a plane stored, using a triangle I know lies on the plane, I get the vector perpendicular to this plane and normalise it, giving me

N(x , y , z),

But I dont know how to apply this information to get the point of intersection between the line and the plane...can anyone help?

Well, actually I am coding the routine myself in BlitzBasic2D...I am trying to learn most aspects of 3D, since it presents itself as a challenge. I am assuming that you are speaking of a DirectX Function?

349It also refers to this link, where they explain how to determine if a point it's outside of a polygon, and then they 'port' it in 3D.

Hope this helps!

PS: you'll need some matrix knowledge to actually understand how it is done.
