This is a rather primitive question coming from an electronic engineer. When applying rotate (about origin), scale (in which we shall translate towards origin and then back) and translate, does it matter in what order we do it? Why?
Basically in my case I have an image in coordinate space that goes from -2 to +2 in x and -1.5 to +1.5 in y to get ration of 4:3. This range comes from how the original mandelbrot set is plotted. I need to scale and translate this to fit into an axes (of pixels) in bitmap that goes from 0 to 800 in x axis and 0 to 600 in y axis. I am trying to understand what matrix to use to scale and translate the points from my mandelbrot set into the bitmap image.
