I have the normal of a plane and a vector. I want to project this vector onto the plane from a particular perspective (top-down).
Because I'm terrible at describing math terms, here are pictures of my problem.
The teal-blue line is what I'm currently calculating by doing a standard projection onto the plane, which is not what I want. It is the red line being projected onto the plane the capsule is standing on. It's hard to tell from the picture, but the red line is a flat vector and only spans the x / z axis.
As expected, a view directly onto the plane shows the red line is being projected - but not how I want.
What I want is to project the red line onto the plane from directly above. So from the point of view attached below the red line should be projected onto the plane, but from the top-down perspective - as you can see, this is different than regular projection (the teal-blue line).
Hopefully I've described my question properly, any direction is greatly appreciated!
