Let's imagine that we have a given normal, (it could be done with source and destination points but let's say that source is 0 0 0 and the destination has been already normalized)

What could be the easiest way to create a Quad with side S that points to that normal?

Obviously, we could create an M4x4 and transform vertex per vertex, but it could be too costly, I assume that there could be an easier/faster method.

Thank you in advance for any tip!

  • \$\begingroup\$ There are infinitely many possible quads that have a given normal. Do you have more parameters (e.g. position and scale)? Edit: Oh, and I wrote that before thinking a quad might not even be a rectangle. \$\endgroup\$
