More Matricies

This is a discussion on More Matricies within the Tech Board forums, part of the Community Boards category; I was just wondering....when you multiply a matrix by a scalar, how is the transformation in the matrix affected? Thanks ...

    Well try it and figure it out Well probably you'll just get some erroneous results. Esp if the scalar is 0 hah. Anyways, if its a scaling transformation then the result is obvious. If its a projection matrix it'll probably just mess everything up. It really depends on the scalar value. You pick a big number and you'll get some really messed up results. Nothing special.
