Hello,

I want to render OpenGL content to a picture without opening a window.
I solved that for windows, but would rather have a platform independent solution. Does glut support something like that?

Thanks, Peter

How did you solve it? A pbuffer?

I don't think you can (reliably) do anything similar with GLUT.

I have a plan to include support for pbuffers in GLFW some time in the future, but that is not very reliable eihter (not all hardware supports it).
