    Vertex Blending

    Is GL_ARB_vertex_blend deprecated?

    Is there an efficient way to do vertex blending without using GL_ARB_vertex_program or writing GLSL shaders?

    Thank you,
    Robert MacHardy

    On modern cards GL_ARB_vertex_blend simply generates a shader for you. Just like most other deprecated stuff.
    So, either use it despite being deprecated, or finally get updated

    ARB_vertex_blend was never well supported. I don't think NVIDIA ever supported it.

    So really, no. Use shaders.

    Re: Vertex Blending

    I found that this was deprecated by browsing forums for vertex blending information. Is there a better way to see if extensions are deprecated, a list somewhere perhaps?

    Thank you,
