    Hi Zak,

    I also saw a single dot running the program. I then commented out the:

    rr = VarPtr(aff(1))
    glMultMatrixf rr

    statements and the next run I saw many dots in a pattern, but did not...

    As well as the FreeBasic program that created the picture. What you see above is a Quaternion Julia Set rendered as a display list. It was created by...

    Quaternion Julia Sets

    Hi Zak,

    You might want to look up quaternion Julia sets... those are really beautiful 3D projections of 4D fractals using quaternions (4D analogs of the complex plane).

    I have some...

    Hi Petr,

    No worries at all... I understand!

    I'll look at the entity system and see what I can find. I'm very close to having this problem figured out.

    Cheers... and thanks!

    Some progress... the mouse moves the crosscap and inertia exists, however this is not trackball rotation yet.

    Zak gave me some good ideas (thanks Zak!). I tweaked his mouse statements a bit.

    Hi Petr!

    This is fun... thinBasic runs the graphic very smoothly (using your TBGL module, of course :D). Once I get the mouse tracking working as I want, then I'll try to optimize a bit.

    I'll give you an "A" for the example :D

    I can use your mouse code I think. What I want to do is develop a trackball movement with inertia... continuous...

    New program... parametric surfaces

    Just a new program using some raw OpenGL and Petr's great example code. This program plots a crosscap using 3 parametric equations.

    My intention is to add trackball mouse interaction at some...

    Hi Petr,

    Very nice! This should help immensely...

    When I finish the translation, I'll have to list you as a co-author :D

    Thank you very much for the tip... and for the elegant program...

    I agree... ByRef is much simpler than trying to use pointers (for me, anyway). Sending the matrix name (ByRef) worked!

    Another question:

    What is the TBGL equivalent of the glutIdle()...

    Fantastic... thanks for the "pointer" :D

    Seriously, I'll give this a try. ByRef makes sense.

  18. Porting question from "raw" OpenGL

    I can understand what you mean, particularly from the programming examples you have in thinBasic and in the bonus packs. I can discard GLUT... I simply need to think differently :D

    Thanks Petr,

    Great information... I wasn't aware that I could include opengl headers. Now I have a project for the weekend!

    Hi Michael,

    As a thinBasic and TBGL beginner, I did not see the possibility of using raw OpenGL code... but Petr has set me on the correct path!

    I'll echo Eros... Petr has the ability to amaze!...
