Hi @all,
Im a complete Newbie. Im just starting with the topic of grafics programming. Ive allready read a lot of stuff but I`m still a little bit confused about the differences and dependencies between OpenGL, the OpenGL Shading Language, Cg-Shader and SGI-Shader.
Could anybody explain it to me in simple words, because my second problem is that my english isnt very well, so that Im not sure about the things I read.
Thanx a lot.
