openGL video rendering RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    i have been developing applications in DirectX that allow me to allocate a buffer on a graphics card memory and also to render to the screen. I used such methods as IDirect3D9::CreateDevice, IDirect3DDevice9::CreateAdditionalSwapChain, IDirect3DSwapChain9::Present amonst others to achive this.

    How can i do something similar using openGL? what functions will allow me to do something similar?

    thank you

  • Hi supcugar,

    In Visual C++ General Forum, we discuss general questions about Visual C++ , including the development environment, libraries, setup, debugger, samples, and documentation.

    OpenGL  is off-topic here.  Please post to openGL forum , just as Sheng Jiang suggested.

    Thank you for your understanding!
