OpenGL Headline News
he Linux Blog is running a set of OpenGL API tutorials by a beginner in 3d graphics programming for beginners. Topics discussed so far include perspectives and model transformations, basic lighting, and how to navigate within a 3d scene. Future articles will include texture mapping, how to do full screen mode within x windows, how to animate scenes, all culminating in a simple 3D video game called “The Last Trailer Park”. The author is a long time Windows C++ programmer but is new to both Linux and the OpenGL API so the perspective is from newbie to newbie. All examples are GPL and the OpenGL API tutorial download is a complete Linux source distribution with GNU autoconf.
