I can explain this to you but I use Java and Java Advance imaging for producing the pictures...

For the OpenGL part, You have to use glReadPixel(x,y,width,height,format,type,pixels[]) function that will read the pixels of the scene and put the result in an array.. After you must use this array for producing the pictures.. I know how to do it in Java but not in C++.. but you can find a lot of examples in the archives of the forum for C++ code.

glReadPixels where:
(x,y) angle inferior left of the area to read
width height the dimsension of the area
format, the element type (GL_RGB, GL_RGBA...)
type the type of data (GL_BYTE,
and pixel a byte array of the pixels read..

the size of this array (for a byte array) will be(width*height*Element type size (3 for RGB 4 for RGBA..))

Now if you work also with Java tell me I will give you the code I used for producing the pictures !!!
