Hi,

How to create an enhanced metafile from my application? I am using Visual c++ 6.0 and OpenGL. I could not find the details from sites. Can anyone help me? I want to create an enhanced metafile of the diagram rendered in the screen.

What do you mean with "enhanced metafile"?

Do you ask for a formated file, which allows to save, load the scene and sort the scene you are drawing?

Is this is what you want, an option is search for scene-graph based aplications, like the NVIDIA Scene Graph, or OpenSceneGraph.

I think the OP wants this file format :

You can use these 2 programs combined :

Hi Api,

My opengl scene that is, the diagram i am drawing on the screen should be converted and saved as an enhanced metafile through my program itself. Instead of drawing on screen and converting to metafile, i wish to do offscreen rendering and saving to a metafile. So if i playback the metafile on my screen instead of redrawing the diagram, i thought the speed of the can be increased. Since my application under development is a CAD like application, the speed should be considerable. So help with ideas for creating an .emf metafile. And i am in a need to give the output in a pdf format also.. The pdf file should be generated in a high resolution. So if anything wrong, please notice me and forgive me. I am new to this OpenGL programming.

Expecting ur reply,
Thanking you for ur Previous reply,
