I am reading a book on game programming, but haven't got to graphics yet. I'm a noob but I have learned alot in the past couple of weeks.
Anyway, if how are the 3d graphics in games created? I mean like a character or world for instance, is it plotted on a 3d graph using plot points to draw or is there software use use to draw the characters and worlds and then coding to give it the things it can do, like classes. If so, what kind of software is used to build 3d worlds and characters/objects and make it work with C++ code?
I know I am a long ways from this but I was just wondering it has been bugging me and I couldn't find it seaching on the forum.
Thanks for your help.
