I’ve been working a bit lately with the Glut OpenGL library. It’s pretty simple to get started with but there were a few complicated bits that had me stumped. In my search for online resources, I came across Bill Jacobs’ very good step-by-step set of video tutorials with lots of accompanying sample code.
Covering everything from basic topics such as shapes and colors all the way up to perspective changes, textures, and animations, these lessons help build up a solid and thorough understanding of OpenGL and Glut. To top it off, the videos are in flash and download pretty quickly.
