    3D characters in glut

    hi there

    Is there any good openGL (non-windows glaux) library for creating 3D characters so I can use it in glut - glutBitmapCharacters only allows 2D-chars.

    thanks alot

    The non-windows glaux - was that non-windows and non-glaux or just non-glaux? There is another way to do it in Windows using wglUseFontOutlines but it is windows specific.

    There are some libraries listed in the link below and if you search the forum there are more links. I think I remember several people posting links to work they had done for 3D text.

    I'm using glut, and I was told that it's bad to have both glaux and glut, glut is mandatory - therefore I need something which will work in Windows under glut and without glaux - which I was told is MS-OpenGL auxilary library.

    Since you do want windows you could use wglUseFontOutlines.
