I want to render the front view in fullscreen and to put in a corner a small rear view. Is there any special way to do this (I mean not the logical way) ?
Does it take more time to render ?

You do not want a logical answer? http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif
I can only come up with one way to do it:
1. Render the normal fullscreen view
2. Change so OpenGL will render in a small part of the corner.
3. Move the camera
4. Render the scene again.

The cost can be high if your application is using a lot of polygons but cheap if it is fiill limited.
