VectorWorks 11 enhances rendering with OpenGL API interactive shaders

Jul 20, 2004

With earlier versions of VectorWorks, you could only view shaders if you rendered in one of the RenderWorks rendering modes. With the new OpenGL API rendering support in v11, you can see shaders and render transparent objects like glass, crystal, and plastic directly in VectorWorks interactive OpenGL rendering mode.

Xj3D Toolkit vM9 adds native OpenGL API renderer that is twice as fast as the Java3D version

Jul 16, 2004

Xj3D is an open source API for developing an X3D and/or VRML 97 compliant browser. It is also the sample implementation and test bed for X3D.  The M9 release adds a native OpenGL API renderer that is twice as fast as the Java3D version, and consumes significantly less memory. It also supports the full X3D Immersive profile, has a more user-friendly interface, converts from VRML 97 to X3D encodings, and supports Java Webstart so you can embed Xj3D onto a webpage for auto-installation.

OpenGL SuperBible 3rd Edition

Jul 15, 2004

feature graphic

The OpenGL SuperBible 3rd edition has a new co-author, and is TWICE the size of the 2nd edition! It includes coverage of all the latest OpenGL API features including the OpenGL Shading Language.  The first set of chapters are a good way to introduce yourself to 3D graphics programming with OpenGL and provide the conceptual foundation on which the more advanced capabilities are based. The second part provides specific information about using OpenGL on Windows, MacOS X, and Linux/UNIX. Finally, the third part contains the newest features not just of OpenGL, but of 3D graphics hardware in general today. The OpenGL Shading Language, in particular, is the principal feature of OpenGL 2.0, and it represents the biggest advance in computer graphics in many years.

Game Consoles (e.g PlayStation) moving to OpenGL ES

Jul 13, 2004

Now that OpenGL ES has become established in the cell phone market, other industry sectors are showing interest including game consoles, which typically use proprietary APIs. A spokeswoman said Sony Computer Entertainment is investigating the use of OpenGL ES on its platforms. To date, Sony has used proprietary APIs that changed with each product generation, forcing developers to rewrite game code. The company’s next console will be its first to use the Cell processor will span multiple product generations so it will benefit from a common API.
