QSlim uses the OpenGL API for interactive polygon simplification

Numerous applications rely on polygonal surface models for both simulation and display. Traditionally, such models are fixed sets of polygons, providing a single LOD which may not be appropriate for every application. QSlim provides a command line interface for fast and automatic simplification of highly detailed polygonal surface models into faithful approximations containing fewer polygons. The interactive interfaces uses the OpenGL API for rendering.

OpenGL Shading Language seminar from GameInstitute

This new semiar form GameInstitute covers the OpenGL Shading Language and includes a version of Shader Designer for Linux. The seminar covers the language basics, syntax, variables, etc., and explains the math and how to create shaders ranging from the most basic (a plain colored mesh) to an advanced lighting model (per pixel lighting + gloss + parallax + bump mapping). At the end of the seminar an example is provided of integration of a Shader Designer project into an engine.

Per pixel subsurface scattering of light using the OpenGL API

In this simple demo aiffuse light component is rendered into lightmap space. Further passed and scattered light is calculated (simple exponent approximation)  on the base of 3D lockup texture (128x128x256). The scene is then rendered using the light map. The demo actively uses dynamic branching so it requires GeForce 6.
