OpenGL is a strong software program interface used to supply high quality, computer-generated pictures and interactive functions utilizing 2nd and 3D gadgets, bitmaps, and colour images.


The OpenGL®Programming consultant, 7th Edition, provides definitive and accomplished details on OpenGL and the OpenGL application Library. the former version lined OpenGL via model 2.1. This 7th version of the best-selling “red publication” describes the newest positive factors of OpenGL models 3.0 and 3.1. you'll find transparent causes of OpenGL performance and lots of uncomplicated special effects strategies, equivalent to construction and rendering 3D types; interactively viewing gadgets from various standpoint issues; and utilizing shading, lighting fixtures, and texturing results for larger realism. moreover, this e-book offers in-depth assurance of complex suggestions, together with texture mapping, antialiasing, fog and atmospheric results, NURBS, photograph processing, and extra. The textual content additionally explores different key subject matters comparable to bettering functionality, OpenGL extensions, and cross-platform techniques.


This 7th variation has been up to date to incorporate the latest positive factors of OpenGL types 3.0 and 3.1, including


  • Using framebuffer items for off-screen rendering and texture updates
  • Examples of a number of the new buffer item kinds, together with uniform-buffer items, rework suggestions buffers, and vertex array objects
  • Using texture arrays to extend functionality while utilizing a number of textures
  • Efficient rendering utilizing primitive restart and conditional rendering
  • Discussion of OpenGL’s deprecation mechanism and the way to ensure your courses for destiny types of OpenGL


This version keeps the dialogue of the OpenGL Shading Language (GLSL) and explains the mechanics of utilizing this language to create complicated portraits results and enhance the computational strength of OpenGL. The OpenGL Technical Library offers instructional and reference books for OpenGL. The Library allows programmers to realize a realistic knowing of OpenGL and indicates them how you can unencumber its complete strength. initially constructed by way of SGI, the Library maintains to adapt lower than the auspices of the Khronos OpenGL ARB operating workforce, an consortium answerable for guiding the evolution of OpenGL and similar technologies.
