Re: line triangle intersection pointWhat is your equation for the line? Parametric? "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #3 20060128 21:00:10
Re: line triangle intersection pointSorry, This is a line / triangle intersection in a 3D world (directx). Actually what I need to find out is the y position of a landscape at a given position for x and z. so I can place an object on the landscape. A landscape is simply a huge number of vertices. 3 vertices connected to eachother (triangle) form a face. So my thought was, if I make a vertical line with known x and z values and a low and high y value I should be able to find the y value of the landscape at intersection point. #4 20060214 23:46:19
Re: line triangle intersection pointI started this thread a while ago and thought I found the answer, I guess not as it doesn't work.
