OPENGL

Is there any one here that is interested in or using the OPENGL graphics library? If so post a message and let's discuss the subject.
I hope I'm not the only person using it.

    Ok, I'll mark that as 3 confirmed users (on this site) so far.
    I was hoping to find enough people here to warrent an OPENGL board. I just got into learning it a few weeks ago and would like to learn all I can.
    I have no dreams of making any earth shattering programs, I'm just a knowledge junkie (too much time on my hands).
    If you know of any good sites, articles, programs or tuts let me know.
    Thanks

    Count me in too, but only as a beginner...

    Try this one:

    I'm currently doing the tutorial on the site.

    I just started on it 3 week ago, but I already have a lot of experience with 3D(AUTOCAD), ALLEGRO, DirectX and I'm moving along quickly.
    I think I've just about got every thing worth getting (over 400 megs) on the web.
    What do you think about a message board just for OPENGL/glut?
    If I get at least 5 or 6 people that are interested I'll set it up.
    How much C experience do you have and what compiler do you use?
    What are your goals for using it?

    Great, but they already exist... http://www.opengl.org/developers/forums/
    So...

    Not any C, but I'm beginning to do C++ well. I'm using both VC++ and Dev-C++.

    : What are your goals for using it?

    None...yet

    I was speaking of on this site. I kinda thought that was obvious.

    How can you learn C++ and not know any C? C++ is just an extention of C, created to give programmers more headaches. When you write a program in C++, 95% of it IS C.
    Keep at, you'll get there.

    C++ is not 95% C. Also C is not mandatory to learn C++. C++ is C with classes is just a misconception.

    OK, write me a C++ program without any C in it.

    I am! Though only a beginner mind. What do you think of it?

    Great! Well I got into it 3 weeks ago and I'm trilled with it. I have collected over 400 megs of related stuff. I had to write a PCXloader and a (ascii 3ds) loader to import images though. It seems the SGI rgb format is the supported image format.
    I was working with ALLEGRO until I saw it's limitations and the possablities of OPENGL. I have be able to do so much more and quicker than I could with ALLEGRO.
    Fortunetly I have AUTOcad 2002 experience with 3D, which made the learning curve alot easyer.
    My email is etlusk@woodstock.com if you want to share info or duscuss problems.
