Hi !! Today I started learning OpenGL. I want to know following things:

1. How much time is needed to learn OpenGL?

2. I started learning from MSDN library. Please suggest the best material/book by which I can learn OpenGL.

1. Depends on how much you know about 3D graphics and math!!!! http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif

2. There are lot's of on-line tutors and books.
Two good books are the "OpenGL Programming guide" also know as the "Red Book" and OpenGL Reference guide aka the "Blue Book".
Both can be found on-line..
