Frequently asked questions about OpenGL

What is OpenGL?

OpenGL (Open Graphics Library) is a cross-platform, cross-language 2D and 3D graphics rendering API specification. OpenGL is usually implemented in the GPU hardware, but a full-software rendering implementation called Mesa 3D also exists.

It’s supported by Windows, Linux and macOS systems, and has bindings in many languages, including C/C++, Python, Ruby, Java, Javascript and Lua

It allows interacting with GPUs from AMD, NVidia, and Intel, with more recent versions supporting advanced computer graphics features such as shaders, tessellation and anisotropic filtering.

What is OpenGL used for?

Being cross-platform and cross-language, OpenGL is used by several applications that require 2D or 3D rendering including:

  • CAD software such as AutoCAD and Maya
  • Modeling software such as Blender and Scilab
  • Game development libraries including SDL and Pygame
  • Photography editing software such as Adobe Photoshop and GIMP
  • 3D Visualization in general, such as Google Earth

How long does it take to learn OpenGL?

OpenGL requires a few months of effort to be learned, depending on the person and the amount of knowledge one already has on computer graphics.

What are the prerequisites for learning OpenGL?

Learning OpenGL requires knowledge of how computer graphics work, including some Linear Algebra, Geometry, and rendering algorithms. It also requires that you have some knowledge in one of the programming languages that have OpenGL bindings, such as C++ or Python. Although Mesa 3D implements OpenGL rendering with software, a computer with a GPU is also recommended.
