+ | |||

+ | An easy way to find out if a face faces towards the viewer or away is to check whether the area covered by a face is positive (frontface) or negative (backface). | ||

+ | This done by taking the first 3 vertices (already transformed into 2D) of that face and calculating the following: | ||

+ | |||

+ | (v1.y - v0.y) * (v2.x - v1.x) - (v1.x - v0.x) * (v2.y - v1.y) | ||

+ | |||

+ | If the result is positive, the face is visible and rendered, else it is discarded. | ||

+ | </code> | ||

+ | |||

+ | Though things are fast, all this can be a bit unprecise when faces get small, so it is smart to let the filler test if x1 > x2 when drawing a line of a face and thus stopping filling if this happens, else you might end up in slight glitches. | ||
