Orientation of glazing in three-phase method

Dear all,

A question regarding the orientation of glazing in three- and five-phase calc.

When calculating the view matrix, I know the glazing aperture should facing towards the interior. Should I flip the orientation of the glazing aperture towards the exterior when calculating the daylight matrix? I see the Matrix-based tutorial did not do that, but an answer to a past question in the mailist said "yes".

Thanks,

Tommy

I do not believe that you should flip the window orientation in the 5-phase method.

Dear Minchen,

as a follow-up on that - you should definitely not flip the surface if you
are using rfluxmtx to calculate your matrices. Quoting from the manpage:
"Rays always emanate from the back side of the sender surface and arrive at
the front side of receiver surfaces. In this way, a receiver surface may be
reused as a sender in a subsequent rfluxmtx calculation and the resulting
matrices will concatenate properly."

Best,
David
