public static method CalculateFrustumPlanes(camera: Camera): Plane[];
public static Plane[] CalculateFrustumPlanes(Camera camera);

Parameters

camera The camera with the view frustum that you want to calculate planes from.

Returns

Plane[] The planes that form the camera's view frustum.

Description

Calculates frustum planes.

This function takes the given camera's view frustum and returns six planes that form it.

Ordering: [0] = Left, [1] = Right, [2] = Down, [3] = Up, [4] = Near, [5] = Far

See Also: Plane, GeometryUtility.TestPlanesAABB.

// Create a "Plane" GameObject aligned to each of the calculated planes for (int i = 0; i < 6; ++i) { GameObject p = GameObject.CreatePrimitive(PrimitiveType.Plane); p.name = "Plane " + i.ToString(); p.transform.position = -planes[i].normal * planes[i].distance; p.transform.rotation = Quaternion.FromToRotation(Vector3.up, planes[i].normal); } } }

public static method CalculateFrustumPlanes(camera: Camera, planes: Plane[]): void;
public static void CalculateFrustumPlanes(Camera camera, Plane[] planes);

Parameters

camera The camera with the view frustum that you want to calculate planes from.
planes An array of 6 Planes that will be overwritten with the calculated plane values.

Description

Calculates frustum planes.

This function takes the given camera's view frustum and returns six planes that form it. This is similar to the previous overload, except that instead of allocating a new array for the calculated planes, the function will use an array that you have provided. This array must always be exactly of length 6.

Ordering: [0] = Left, [1] = Right, [2] = Down, [3] = Up, [4] = Near, [5] = Far

public static method CalculateFrustumPlanes(worldToProjectionMatrix: Matrix4x4): Plane[];
public static Plane[] CalculateFrustumPlanes(Matrix4x4 worldToProjectionMatrix);

Parameters

worldToProjectionMatrix A matrix that transforms from world space to projection space, from which the planes will be calculated.

Returns

Plane[] The planes that enclose the projection space described by the matrix.

Description

Calculates frustum planes.

This function returns six planes of a frustum defined by the given view & projection matrix.

See Also: Plane, GeometryUtility.TestPlanesAABB.


public static method CalculateFrustumPlanes(worldToProjectionMatrix: Matrix4x4, planes: Plane[]): void;

Parameters

planes An array of 6 Planes that will be overwritten with the calculated plane values.
