OpenSceneGraph 3.0 for beginners book Quality
Reply with quote

Hi all,

I want to learn how to use OSG. I'm new, I know the basics of OpenGL and I've studied Computer Graphics at the university.
I found the book [b]OpenSceneGraph 3.0 for beginners[\b] but I noticed that it has been published in 2010, so it's very old... Is it still a good starting point? is there something more updated?

Thank you!

Cheers,
Noè

Hi,

Get Visual Studio Community and browse through the sources. It's very easy to read through. There are also a ton of examples if you turn that on in cmake.

Thank you!

Cheers,
Johny

Hi,

From my experience the book is still mostly relevant and will help you quickly get up to speed.
I recommend reading it (or at least the relevant chapters for you), but don't forget that the best way to learn after that is to go through the examples and read their source, as Johny suggested.

Good luck,
Eran Cohen

It is still a very good book.

most of what is said is high enough level that the changes in lower level implementation don't really matter.

Hi,

Thanks for all your advices! I will read the book like a good introduction, but of course I will use the examples to understand the correct usage of OSG.

Thank you again!

Cheers,
Noè

Was there a particular task or goal you were seeking to achieve? Many times, we can suggest other, more relevant material if we know your intentions.
