Initialize the plane through the three given points.

If the plane is expressed as (N,D) with N the A,B,C components of the plane then this will initialize the plane to (N',-N'*v1) with N' equal to (v1-v2)%(v1-v3).

Classify the given vector with regards to this plane.

If the plane is expressed as (N,D) with N the A,B,C components of the plane then this will calculate and return N*pt+D. Note that in the Crystal Space engine this function will return negative if used on the visible side of a polygon. i.e. if you take the world space plane of the polygon, then Classify() will return a negative value if the camera is located at a point from which you can see the polygon. Back-face culling will make the polygon invisible on the other side.

Clip the polygon in pverts (having num_verts vertices) to this plane.

The vertices are expected in camera space. Method returns true if there is something visible, false otherwise. Note that this function returns a pointer to a static array in csPlane3. The contents of this array will only be valid until the next call to ClipPolygon. Normally this function will consider the polygon visible if it is on the negative side of the plane (Classify()). If 'reversed' is set to true then the positive side will be used instead.

Compute the distance from the given vector to this plane.

This function assumes that 'norm' is a unit vector. If not, the function returns distance times the magnitude of 'norm'. This function corresponds exactly to the absolute value of Classify().

void csPlane3::Invert (

) [inline]

Reverses the direction of the plane while maintianing the plane itself.

This will basically reverse the result of Classify().

Initialize the plane through the three given points.

If the plane is expressed as (N,D) with N the A,B,C components of the plane then this will initialize the plane to (N',-N'*v1) with N' equal to (v1-v2)%(v1-v3).
