The Mac has fully embraced OpenGL throughout its visual systems. In fact, Apple's highly efficient, modern OpenGL implementation makes Mac OS X one of today's best platforms for OpenGL development. OpenGL® Programming on Mac OS® X is the first comprehensive resource for every graphics programmer who wants to create, port, or optimize OpenGL applications for this high-volume platform. Leading OpenGL experts Robert Kuehne and J. D. Sullivan thoroughly explain the Mac's diverse OpenGL APIs, both old and new. They illuminate crucial OpenGL setup, configuration, and performance issues that are unique to the Mac platform. Next, they offer practical, start-to-finish guidance for integrating key Mac-native APIs with OpenGL, and leveraging the full power of the Mac platform in your graphics applications. Coverage includes A thorough review of Mac hardware and software architectures and their performance implications In-depth, expert guidance for accessing OpenGL from each of the Mac's core APIs: CGL, AGL, and Cocoa Interoperating with other Mac APIs: incorporating video with QuickTime, performing image effects with Core Image, and processing CoreVideo data Analyzing Mac OpenGL application performance, resolving bottlenecks, and leveraging optimizations only available on the Mac Detecting, integrating, and using OpenGL extensions An accompanying Web site (www.macopenglbook.com) contains the book's example code, plus additional OpenGL-related resources. OpenGL® Programming on Mac OS® X will be valuable to Mac programmers seeking to leverage OpenGL's power, OpenGL developers porting their applications to the Mac platform, and cross-platform graphics developers who want to take advantage of the Mac platform's uniquely intuitive style and efficiency.

OpenGL ® SuperBible, Fourth Edition , begins by illuminating the core techniques of “classic” OpenGL graphics programming, from drawing in space to geometric transformations, from lighting to texture mapping. The authors cover newer OpenGL capabilities, including OpenGL 2.1’s powerful programmable pipeline, vertex and fragment shaders, and advanced buffers. They also present thorough, up-to-date introductions to OpenGL implementations on multiple platforms, including Windows, Mac OS X, GNU/Linux, UNIX, and embedded systems. Coverage includes · An entirely new chapter on OpenGL ES programming for handhelds · Completely rewritten chapters on OpenGL for Mac OS X and GNU/Linux · Up-to-the-minute coverage of OpenGL on Windows Vista · New material on floating-point color buffers and off-screen rendering · In-depth introductions to 3D modeling and object composition · Expert techniques for utilizing OpenGL’s programmable shading language · Thorough coverage of curves, surfaces, interactive graphics, textures, shadows, and much more · A fully updated API reference, and an all-new section of full-color images You’ll rely on this book constantly—whether you’re learning OpenGL for the first time, deepening your graphics programming expertise, upgrading from older versions of OpenGL, or porting applications from other environments. Now part of the OpenGL Technical Library—The official knowledge resource for OpenGL developers The OpenGL Technical Library provides tutorial and reference books for OpenGL. The Library enables programmers to gain a practical understanding of OpenGL and shows them how to unlock its full potential. Originally developed by SGI, the Library continues to evolve under the auspices of the OpenGL Architecture Review Board (ARB) Steering Group (now part of the Khronos Group), an industry consortium responsible for guiding the evolution of OpenGL and related technologies.
