Hi! I am about to get 3ds Studio. I just want to know if the models we build can be imported to openGL? And how?

OpenGL is a low-level graphics library. It doens't have support for importing databases. What you are looking for is a scene-graph ... something like OSG, OpenSG, etc. I'm not sure which support 3DS. Of course you could write your own since they are open-source.

I think there are many ways to import 3ds models into OpenGL.First one, you can use 3DExploration to transform it to OpenGL cpp;another, there are also many classes already written. Just search "3ds opengl" in this column, you'll find your solution.Good luck!
