Hi im using lists for my static meshes but I need to know which is the fastest method (and not the hardest) to render non-static meshes? im making a non-static mesh format and its all setted up I already export the vertices of every frame from my modelling program and everything is good but if I call glvertex3f all the time thats very slow and more slow if I have mid to high poly characters.. so whats the solution for this?

thanks
i did search on the forums but i didnt find the correct answer thanks.

VBO should fit very well for non static meshes.

Check the extension registry for that extension. Here's the link:

If you never have had loaded GL extensions, then check for a library that made it for you like glew.
