Lets say you have the following transform function list for the transform property: transform: translate() rotate() scale() Each transform function will be transformed to a matrix which would look like transform: A B C where A is equivalent to translate() B is equivalent to rotate() C is equivalent to scale() The transform origin is 'center'. Therefore, we need to translate before applying the transform function lists. Lets go step by step according to the spec: 1. Start with the identity matrix. We create the identical transformation matrix I: T = I. 2. Translate by the computed X, Y and Z values of ‘transform-origin’ Create a translation matrix and multiply with I: T = I * Trans 3. Multiply by each of the transform functions in ‘transform’ property from left to right T = I * Trans * A * B * C 4. Translate by the negated computed X, Y and Z values of ‘transform-origin’ T = I * Trans * A * B * C * TransBack T is the local transformation matrix (or just transformation matrix). To get the CTM, you need to accumulate all transformation matrices. Is the part that confuses you the part with A * B * C? Or how to multiply these transformation matrices to the identical transform with the translation (I * Trans * A * B * C)? Do you disagree with the order in general?
