    Any tutorials or books on writing a decent scene graph for games?

    I can find almost every tutorial imaginable on OpenGl, but I have not been able to find one article or tutorial or a book that would cover the topic of writing a scene graph for a game (or a graphic application). Yet this is the crucial thing in almost any 3d application.
    From the few books that I have, they always seem to skip this topic...
    Does anyone know of any books, tutorials, web resources, articles etc. that would cover this topic?
    Yes, I know there are things like SceneGraph or OpenSG, but I'd like to learn how to write them

    Thank you,
    Luke

    "3D Game Engine Design" by Dave Eberly. Find it on Amazon, ISBN1-55860-593-2 or take a look at his web site at http://www.magic-software.com

    I find Eberly's book useful for some stuff, but definitely not for SceneGraph. And it's fully loaded of errors and typo everywhere.

    You'd rather google for scene graph and take a look at papers llike "Generalized scene graph". CiteSeer works well too for publications.

    I have a book that I wrote on Game engine design "Introduction to 3D Game Engine Design" through Apress. It is written using C# and DirectX9 but the concepts would be the same regardless of implementation. It might give you some ideas.
