    Suggestion regarding API

    Hello,

    Can anyone please suggest any good APIs built on top of OpenGL?
    Something like OpenGL performer or OpenSceneGraph.

    i would be needing it mostly for terrain rendering.

    Could anyone please suggest any?
    Thanks.

    Re: Suggestion regarding API

    Hello again,

    Well i went through most of the links. i even tried OpenSceneGraph and OpenSG.

    Well, now i feel that rendering a terrain from scratch would be a better option than learning whole APIs. But if i can merge low level API stuff with higher level APIs, i think it would be worth it.

    What i mean is,

    say im using OpenSceneGraph. Now i want to use some gl functions, can i use both together.

    something like this:
    Code :
    /* Use gl functions, build the projection matrix */
     ..
     ..
    /* Now build the modelview matrix */
     ..
     ..
    /* Now i build some scene using OSG */
     ..
     ..
     
    /* gl functions to render */
     ..
    Can i use this approach. i would like to use the lower level flexibility + the ease with higher level APIs. Is this possible?

    Thanks

    Anyone who has tried that approach? ie using OpenGL with OSG?

    Or are there any other tools with which i can work, so that i can get the lower level functionality + some higher level functionalities?

    Thanks.
