#### elliptic movement?

```I have a point in 3D that should move along an elipsis where the lenght of
the elipsis should be user specified. I have a time variable that runs from
0.0 -> inf. Any ideas on how I updated the point position on an ellipsis
based on this parameter?

```

Hi
That's not an OpenGL related question at all, but, if the axis of your
ellipsis is oriented according the Ox and Oy axis:
x=a.cost
y=b.sint
where a and b are the half axis.
Hope this helps
Cathy

What does "." mean? Is it multiply:

x = a*cos(t)

?

Hum... sorry, yes the dot means multiply.

openGL for turtle graphics
I am developing a Logo-like turtle graphics system in the programming language J http://www.jsoftware.com/ . At present the system is implemented in a graphics system called "gl2". J is adopting "openGL" and I am assuming it is a much richer graphics environment. openGL likely includes sprites or layers or some other feature that would make managing turtles separately from the background much easier. There may also be openGL features for screen wraparound and slide controls for window scrolling. Are there any existing openGL implementations of such systems that I could ...

Best graphics api for GUI?
Hi, what api would you all recommend for doing GUIs? Since I am primarily a linux user, I was thinking of the GDK set, but having programmed GUIs in Java for a few years now (which is exceptionally easy, but perhaps only because I'm used to it), I was wondering if there were any 'easier' (for want of a better word) c++ gui apis one could consider?

2D vector graphics with OpenGL
With OpenGL and the Common Lisp Application Builder project it is easy to create nice 3D animations: http://svn.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.cgi/*checkout*/lispbuilder/trunk/lispbuilder-opengl/documentation/index.html (the lispbuilder-opengl-package will be released later at Sourceforge) But OpenGL is useful for fast 2D vector graphics, too, because drawing operations are accelerated by the graphics card. I've implemented a very basic SVG path parser (in 16 lines with lispbuilder-lexer) and used the SVG file from http://www.lisperati.com/logo.html for rendering something with OpenGL: http://...

OpenGL API and hardware acceleration
Hi, I am pretty new to OpenGL. After trying out a few examples, i downloaded the Mesa source code and looked at the 3D driver (ATI : r300) to see what operations are typically accelerated. I guess that this is not a simple task that can be done quickly with so many indirections in the code :-) Some are obvious where ctx->Driver functions are initialized by the driver. Then there are the software fallback modules vbo etc. also that initializes the Driver functions. For example, i was trying to see if the Vertex operations like glVertex2f() are accelerated. I was unable to find it out. Is th...

What about Lisp and OpenGL (or other graphics libraries)??

Graphics--combining graphics
I am trying to create an animation of a piecewise function.

3D graphics API history

For example, Ardent's Dore, HP's Starbase, SGI's Iris GL, and proprietary PHIGS such as IBM GraPHIGS, etc. (I don't need information on PEX/PEXlib, thanks - already have that covered.)

Spinning OpenGL.Tk graphics
Python's OpenGL.Tk binding makes simple 3D drawing a snap!
