· Lesson: OpenGL Rendering · Course: Fundamentals of Rendering
So when I'm playing any game, what I see on the screen is basically an OpenGL render?sorry but I really got confused about it. :D
Yes, essentially you are correct. OpenGl is a realtime 3D engine that allows us to visualize Blender's viewport (models, particles, basic color materials, etc). Game engines use the same technology to render game visuals in real time.
Thanks for the respond.By visuals in OpenGL are very low quality,take it OpenGL is not commonly used nowadays in gaming industry ?
I don't really understand exactly what OpenGL is. I want to say it's a framework for game engines to interact with graphics cards, but I don't know for sure. It's beyond my understanding how all that works. But AFAIK it's still plenty relevant to the game industry. I assume game engines use OpenGL as a framework too.
My advice: Time to start googling!
