Topics Covered:

  • Review of Fixed function OpenGL Pipeline
  • Efficient Geometry Rendering - Display lists, Triangle Strips, Vertex Arrays
  • Advanced Texture Mapping - Multi-texturing, Compression
  • Programmable Graphics Hardware
  • OpenGL Extension Mechanism
  • Efficient Data structures (VAOs, VBOs)
  • Introduction to OpenGL Shading Language
  • Multi-pass rendering and Frame buffer objects
  • Debugging OpenGL programs
  • Multi-GPU Application Development

Target Audience:

This course is intended for software professionals and students who already have experience with OpenGL programming and want to learn advanced concepts mentioned above.

Prerequisites:

Understanding of basic 3D graphics concepts and experience with OpenGL and C/C++ programming is a must and will be assumed. Familiarity with UNIX or Windows operating systems and development environments is necessary.
