This program draws 5 red teapots, each at a different z distance from the eye, in different types of fog. Pressing the left mouse button chooses between 3 types of . “The most recent Red Book parallels the grand tradition of OpenGL; continuous evolution towards ever-greater power and efficiency. The eighth edition contains . Why everybody says the red book is definite programming guide to the opengl? I just feel its text are vague and abstract and its dull examples.

Other compilers and IDEs should work, but we haven't tested them.

Running After building, there will be a large collection of executables in the bin directory. These are the example applications, which you can directly execute.

The media is now included with the git repository, and the samples should compile and run out-of-the box. That's what this book is about.

Some systems don't support OpenGL 4. Trying to run such samples on a machine that doesn't have OpenGL 4.

For example, if a platform were limited to, say OpenGL 4. Please don't file bugs about that either. Error checking in these applications is minimal.

This program demonstrates how to make and execute a display list. Note that attributes, such as current color and matrix, are changed.

Source code: list. This program demonstrates the use of the GL lighting model.

Several objects are drawn using different material characteristics. A single light source illuminates the objects. Source code: material.

This program demonstrates using mipmaps for texture maps. To overtly show the effect of mipmaps, each mipmap reduction level has a solidly colored, contrasting texture image.

Thus, the quadrilateral which is drawn is drawn with several different colors. Source code: mipmap.

Source code: model. This program demonstrates when to issue lighting and transformation commands to render a model with a light which is moved by a modeling transformation rotate or translate.

The light position is reset after the modeling transformation is called.
