    You can think in terms of "global" or "local" coordinate system. If you are thinking in the global coordinate system, the transformations affect an object by changing its position/orientation in...

    Exactly! The rendering thread (in my opinion) should be the only one that communicate with the driver through OpenGL calls.


    Probably, but you cannot transfer data faster than your system...
  3. Who said that you should, or even could, access...

    Who said that you should, or even could, access VBO without a context being bound to the thread executing OpenGL commands? I just said you should prepare data for VBOs in separate threads and post...

    I wouldn't recommend that. Unless a dual copy engine is used, I think the fastest way to update resources is to use the drawing thread itself. The resource preparation threads should just feed it...

    There is a way to get back information from the driver how many primitives are rendered, but you need a different API for that, not OpenGL.

    Programming in OpenGL 2.1 does not necessarily mean you are using the "old way". As others said, you have chance to learn the "modern way" with OpenGL 2.1 also. Just ensure the following:

    It is too early for this extension. It is not included in the latest Windows drivers. Why did you refer to 347.09? There is no trace of NV_command_list. At least, the extension is not exposed.
    Also,...

    Yes, use the following:


    int n;
    glGetIntegerv(GL_MAX_TESS_GEN_LEVEL, &n);

    The value is 64 at best for all (to me) known hardware.
  9. Full support for OpenGL 4.5 in NV release drivers

    A gift has come from NVIDIA for the New Year’s Eve. OpenGL 4.5 is fully supported in the latest release drivers for Windows (347.09). :)

    Yes it is.


    I don't understand what you want to achieve? P2 is not a vertex. Formally, P1P2=P2-P2=(1, 5, 9, 0)-(2, 4, 6, 1)=(-1, 1, 3, -1). In Cartesian coordinate system, that point has...

    It is a part of the legacy title, which is just inherited from the predecessors. ;)

    We are all witnesses of the proliferation of the books. Nowadays it is hard to find a good one.

    It is not awkward. If you access TexCoords, how compiler knows whether you are accessing input attributes or output variables?


    Yes, if you are using names for connecting shaders.


    There...

    Before going any further read this.

    Reverse order of operations. Transformations cannot affect drawing if they are set after it.
    So, try something like this:

    OpenGL has probably become a mature API and new additions are not as important as they were in previous revisions. :)

    Well, almost all your assumptions are wrong, except one. glDepthRange does affect precision.

    Near and far clip-planes are set with projection matrix. Parameters of glDepthRange just say how to map...

    That is not a belief. A HW tessellation is not possible in OpenGL 3.3. You need to buy new hardware if you want to play with it.

    What actually does GL_RASTERIZER_DISCARD

    The title of this thread is a little bit cryptic, but I'll try to explain it immediately.

    According to all sources, glEnable(GL_RASTERIZER_DISCARD) should disable rasterization and...
