OpenGL SuperBible: Comprehensive Tutorial and Reference, 6th Edition

Book Description

® SuperBible, Sixth Edition, is the definitive programmer’s guide, tutorial, and reference for the world’s leading 3D for real-time computer graphics, OpenGL 4.3. The best all-around introduction to OpenGL for developers at all levels of experience, it clearly explains both the newest and indispensable related concepts. You’ll find up-to-date, hands-on guidance for all facets of modern OpenGL development on both desktop and mobile platforms, including transformations, texture , shaders, buffers, geometry management, and much more.

Extensively revised, this edition presents many new OpenGL 4.3 features, including compute shaders, texture views, indirect draws, and enhanced API debugging. It has been reorganized to focus more tightly on the API, to cover the entire pipeline earlier, and to help you thoroughly understand the interactions between OpenGL and graphics hardware.

Coverage includes

  • A practical introduction to the essentials of realtime 3D graphics
  • Core OpenGL 4.3 techniques for rendering, transformations, and texturing
  • Foundational math for creating interesting 3D graphics with OpenGL
  • Writing your own shaders, with examples to get you started
  • Cross- OpenGL, including essential -specific API initialization material for Linux, OS X, and Windows
  • Vertex , drawing commands, primitive , fragments, and framebuffers
  • Using compute shaders to harness today’s graphics cards for more than graphics
  • Monitoring and controlling the OpenGL graphics pipeline
  • Advanced rendering: light simulation, artistic and non-photo-realistic rendering, and deferred shading
  • Modern OpenGL debugging and performance optimization

Bonus material and sample are available from the companion Web site, openglsuperbible.com.
