    triangle strips and terrain...

    hy there

    is it possible to do a terrain with "one" triangle strip?

    i draw it with a few strips (the rows)

    and how expensive are calls to glBegin, glEnd?

    and what is the thing with indexed triangles? good tuts required...

    bye folks

    Quite sure it's very hard - if possible to draw a whole terrain with a single strip.

    Why are you asking for glBegin/glEnd? Since you're using vertex arrays? Because you're using vertex arrays right?

    Re: triangle strips and terrain...

    ya iam using vertex arrays...better a 3dimensional vertex array, and i asked because i've done my terrain in such a way

    (pseudo)

    for ...
    glBegin();
    for ...
    draw trianglestrip
    glEnd();

    thats quite easy...but the many calls of glBegin and End r not so good..IMHO

    bye
