Open Inventor v5.0 supports OpenGL Shading Language

Aug 10, 2004

Open Inventor is the most widely used object-oriented, cross-platform 3D graphics API for C++ and Java developers. The new Version 5.0adds features that broaden its functionality, including more than 1,000 classes and an intuitive, easy-to-use programming interface that allows for rapid prototyping and development of graphics applications. Open Inventor has an extensible architecture that allows developers to add their own custom functionality. New features include: support for programmable shaders (ARB, Cg, and OpenGL Shading Language), OpenGL 1.5 texture extensions (plus multi-texture, etc.), direct import of OpenFlight files (for vis-sim applications), improved transparency (by sorting triangles), support for X3D nodes, including 2D geometry node, astEdit mode (for small changes in a big scene), an interactive scene graph editing tool, multipipe and volume extensions and more.
