"Programming with OpenGL: Advanced Techniques" Demo Programs
Here are the demo programs used in the course. They have been compiled
and tested on IRIX (SGI's version of Unix) and on Windows '95 PCs. Porting
to other Unix systems should be trivial, but we haven't tried it. If you
do port them to other Unix systems, Machintosh, etc., let us know, and
we'll fold the changes into the program.
The programs grouping is somewhat sloppy. I'll improve the
web page with descriptions and better grouping to make
them easier to find.
The programs aren't in a completely cleaned up state at the momment.
Expect further improvements over time, mostly cleaned up program structure,
bug fixes, and better commenting. We decided it was more important
to get them out sooner than to clean them up. Please excuse our messiness!
A tar file containing the files below is coming soon. Thanks for your patience.
Here are the Makefiles for building these programs on SGI machines and
Windows 95 and NT machines. You are encouraged to submit Makefiles and
any source file changes needed to make these programs compile on other
Here are the demo programs themselves:
Reflections and Refractions
Texture Reading Utilities
Here are the data files (mostly textures) the programs use
Files from the data directory
The programs expect these files in a directory called data
These files should be placed in a directory called skull in the
data directory. They are used by volume.c
Flame Texture Animation
This is a movie loop of textures used to animate a flame. They are used
Portability changes and bugfixes of these files should be sent to
