SmoothTransformBetweenFrusta Class

context for constructing smooth motion a startFrustum and endFrustum. The externally interesting calls are

  • Create a context to shift corner0 to corner1, with the(NPC coordinate) point(fractionU, fractionV, fractionW) moving along its connecting segment, all other points rotating smoothly from the start orientation to end orientation: const context = SmoothTransformBetweenFrusta (cornerA, cornerB)
    • Get any intermediate 8 corners(at fraction) with context.fractionToWorldCorners(fraction)
  • Frustum corners are ordered by "x varies fastest, then y, then z", hence (xyz) order on nondimensional space is
    • (left lower rear) (000)
    • (right lower rear) (100)
    • (left upper rear) (010)
    • (right upper rear) (100)
    • (left lower front) (001)
    • (right lower front) (101)
    • (left upper front) (011)
    • (right upper front) (101)
  • which uses names
    • (left,right) for horizontal (x)
    • (bottom, top) for vertical (y)
    • (rear, front) for back and front planes (z)
