I need to clip some objects in a 2D view, and can’t figure out how to do it. The situation is a rolling digit field, like an odometer, where the digits are clipped as they scroll either up or down. I can’t use a rectangular mask above and below to obscure them because other graphics must appear there “behind” the digit display. Does anyone have any ideas?
I’m doing this on a Windows 2000 PC, using MS VC++ with glut. This will eventually run on a Pentium with Mesa and no OS.
