Sessions

OpenGL ES from the Ground Up

URL:

This session is getting started in 3D programming. OpenGL is cross platform, and iPhone will be used as an example platform.

Being a fan of the Spore video game, and after busting my chops implementing some iPhone titles, I naively decided I wanted to implement a Spore-like (3D) game on iPhone. Oh, little did I know. This session describes my journey from knowing nothing, to getting to the point of algorithmically generating a planet, including parameterizing the planets surface, how to create the surface itself, and how to texture the resulting geometry. I will show you code, and Wrath-Of-Khan style planet panorama sequences.
