Find the normalization transformation, Computer Graphics

Illustration: Find the normalization transformation N that uses the rectangle W (1, 1), X (5, 3), Y (4, 5) and Z (0, 3) as a window and also the normalized device screen like the viewport.

Currently, we observe that the window edges are not parallel to the coordinate axes. Consequently we will first rotate the window regarding W hence it is aligned along with the axes.

Now, tan α= (3 -1)/(5-1) = 1/2

⇒ Sin α =    1 /√5;   Cos α = 2/√5

Now, we are rotating the rectangle in clockwise direction. Consequently α is negative which is, - α.

The rotation matrix about W (1, 1):

The x extent of the rotated window is the length of WX:

√(42 + 22) = 2√5

As same, the y extent is length of WZ that is,

√ (12 + 22) =   √5

For scaling the rotated window to the normalized viewport we calculate sx and sy as,

 sx = (viewport x extent)/(window x extent)= 1/2√5

sy = (viewport y  extent)/(window y extent) =   1/√5

As in expression (1), the common form of transformation matrix showing mapping of a window to a viewport:

[T] =

Within this problem [T] may be termed as N as this is a case of normalization transformation with,

xwmin = 1                        xvmin = 0

ywmin = 1                        yvmin = 0

 sx = 1/2√5      

 sy =  1/√5

Via substituting the above values in [T] which is N:

N =

Here, we compose the rotation and transformation N to determine the needed viewing transformation NR.

 NR = N [TR.θ]W =
