ViewportInfoGetPointDepth Method
Gets the clipping distance of a point. This function ignores the current value of the viewport's near and far settings. If the viewport is a perspective projection, then it intersects the semi infinite frustum volume with the bounding box and returns the near and far distances of the intersection. If the viewport is a parallel projection, it instersects the infinte view region with the bounding box and returns the near and far distances of the projection.
