4 matrix M to describe a specific transformation. 4 row vector v. The product vM results in a new row vector v! that represents the transformed point/vector. 4 matrices because that particular size can represent all the transformations we need. 3 matrix, such as translations, perspective projections, and reflections. Remember that we are working with a vector-matrix product, and so we are limited to the rules of matrix multiplication to perform transformations. 4 matrix allows us to describe more transformations with a vector-matrix product.
1: The left pawn is the original object. The middle pawn is the original pawn scaled 2 units on the y-axis. The right pawn is the original pawn scaled 2 units on the x-axis. The scaling matrix: scales geometry s x units on the x-axis, s y units on the y-axis, and s z units on the z-axis. 1 Suppose we have a square defined by a minimum point ("4, "4, 0) and a maximum point (4, 4, 0). 0 units on the y-axis, and leave the z-axis unchanged. 2. 2: Scaling by one-half units on the x-axis and two units on the y-axis.
4. 4: Rotating "30º clockwise around the y-axis. Note that when looking down the positive y-axis, the geometry is basically 2D since y = 0. 5). Note that to translate an entire object, we translate every point on the object by the same vector b. 5: Displacing the position of the ant by some displacement vector b. 3 Suppose we have a square defined by a minimum point ("8, 2, 0) and a maximum point ("2, 8, 0). Suppose now that we wish to translate the square 12 units on the x-axis, "10 units on the y-axis, and leave the z-axis unchanged.
