    render a plane

    hello,

    i'm wondering if there has any way to draw an infinite plane according to an implicit equation(like Ax+By+Cz+D=0)?

    thanks!

    Opengl cannot render an infinite plane, you must specify the vertices for a quad and it will always be clipped at the view frustum boundaries and the near/far clipping planes.
