View Full Version : Vsync and glutSwapBuffers() and glSwapBuffers

10-17-2000, 04:35 PM
I have a few questions concerning Vsync as a parameter of glSwapBuffers() and glutSwapBuffers(): (1) Is Vsync a parameter of either of these functions, and if so, is it of a boolean value and (2) if not, how could one synchronize buffer swapping (in double buffer mode) with the vertical refresh of the screen? Thanks for your time and effort!

I tried to find information on winswapinterval using several opengl sites, search engines, and microsoft developer network documentation, but I cannot seem to find the command or any parameters.

After searching for similar commands containing swap interval, I found a site that outlines this command and its relative. (the command is wgl_swap_control)
