Hello, straightforward question. Is this 4x4 matrix invertible? 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 1 0 I thought so, but Adobe Flash ActionScript's Matrix3D class refuses to accept the above matrix values, claiming the matrix would not be invertible, so now I'm in doubt. Thanks in advance!!

It looks to me that the matrix is its own inverse, i.e. square the matrix and get the identity.
