I just looked over a textbook on 3-D graphics, and realized(again) how school-educated, studying for exams only scholars who does not know what it takes to be a computer programmer instead of 'computer nerds.'

R U outta your mind? How can you do 3-D graphics without matrix?
IMHO, you can't handle the matrix. It is beyond your understanding. If you want to argue, educate yourself thoroughly and support your argument.

You just realized that NOW? You're lagging, man. I thought they threw away matrix and its relatives and aquaintances a long ago.

It's not Mr.Matrix's fault.
Originally matrix is for mathematicians.
It's all Mr.Array's incompetence.
Then again he's not in commerce.
So who knows?
It's all your fault.
Why bother?
If you can't handle the truth.

Damn, I've been using something that's a 'theoretical piece of s**t' all these years to make my 3d software faster and more managable. If only I'd known it didn't exist I wouldn't have used it.
Matrices are very useful and if you just learn the rules for their use, just like any other mathematical construct (I suppose logarithms, polynomials, pi, e, sin, cos & complex numbers don't exist either), you will see that it all works. Try the numbers, they work. Nuf said.
