    Re: Enquiry about opengl

    You're probably going to be disappointed by this. OpenGL doesn't do any loading or saving. If it isn't directly involved in displaying a rendered image on screen, then OpenGL probably doesn't have the functionality to support it. OpenGL is a low level rendering API.

    All that means is that you will have to write all the loading/saving code yourself. You will, also, have to deal with user interaction (deciding what object was clicked if the user clicks in the rendering window, and a wide variety of other things). It sounds to me like OpenGL is too low level for your needs.
