Thread: Windowless Rendering

    Windowless Rendering


    I want to render OpenGL content to a picture without opening a window.
    I solved that for windows, but would rather have a platform independent solution. What would be a good approach? I must admit, that I haven't done anything with OpenGL on Linux, yet.

    Thanks, Peter

    Use Mesa . It has a really cool offscreen renderer that can render directly into a buffer you give it. No platform dependent code at all needed.
