    Normals ?

    Hello, I've got a question : What are Normals and how are they calculated ? I am a beginner in OpenGL and would be glad to get help from you.

    Normals are vectors. Generally with face normals you can tell which polygons are front-facing you, and vertex normals have something to do with shading.
