OpenGL

This is a discussion on OpenGL within the C++ Programming forums, part of the General Programming Boards category; I was wondering how many people here actually use OpenGL here?? (besides me )....

    hmm, i never really took the time to compair DirectX and OpenGL. I just went with OpenGL because it looked way better on every machine that i tried it on . DirectX has good input stuffs but OpenGL seems to have easyer (and better + more efficient) use.

    I've used a combination of DirectX and OpenGL before, using OpenGL as my graphics API and DirectX for Input and Audio... worked out pretty well actually...

    OpenGL or DirectX.
    I'm not sure which one is best. So play with both. Each has pros and cons.
    Usually its a personal preference.
    If you search for either then you will find a lot of debates.
    Try to help all less knowledgeable than yourself, within
    the limits provided by time, complexity and tolerance.

    to get OpenGL classes and etc. you need to install its sdk and include its files.. cant remember exactly what they are but there like..
    Code:
    #include <gl\gl.h>
    #include <gl\glu.h>	
    #include <gl\glaux.h>

    #include <gl\glaux.h>

    glaux is largely redundant now, look at getting GLUT instead. If you are using VC++ you need to link to the appropriate libraries in the project settings or use a #pragma directive thingy
    You should already have gl.h and glu.h on your machine.

    If you want to learn OpenGL start here or here
