9780321398116: OpenGL: A Primer (3rd Edition)

OpenGL®: A Primer is a concise presentation of fundamental OpenGL, providing readers with a succinct introduction to essential OpenGL commands as well as detailed listings of OpenGL functions and parameters. Angel uses a top-down philosophy to teach computer graphics based on the idea that students learn modern computer graphics best if they can start programming significant applications as soon as possible. The book makes it easy for students to find functions and their descriptions, and supplemental examples are included in every chapter to illustrate core concepts. This primer can be used both as a companion to a book introducing computer graphics principles and as a stand-alone guide and reference to OpenGL for programmers with a background in computer graphics.

From the Back Cover:

Ed Angel provides an introduction to basic OpenGL 1.2 commands in a non-mathematical manner that covers the "how to" and gets readers programming quickly with OpenGL. This primer offers complete coverage of a subset of the OpenGL Application Programmers Interface (API). Case studies apply the commands and examples introduced in each chapter. A discussion of common pitfalls is also included in every chapter. Ten chapters cover: an introduction; two-dimensional programs; interaction and animation; three-dimensional programs; transformations; lights and materials; bits and pixels; texture mapping; curves and surfaces; and some advanced features of OpenGL. This concise introduction to OpenGL 1.2 is ideal for those looking to program computer graphics using OpenGL. It succeeds both as a companion to a book introducing computer graphics principles, and as a stand-alone beginnersŐ guide to OpenGL for programmers with a background in computer graphics.
