Back face culling

I’m rendering a cube, and have set the front face to glFrontFace(GL_CCW). Now if I wanted to render the back face of the cube would I need to draw the orientation as I see it (Clockwise to me, counter clockwise to OpenGL) or counter clockwise to me, and clockwise to opengl.

OpenGL by default considers polygons that have counterclockwise winding to be front facing. So, specifying a polygons vertices in a counterclockwise order will result in a front facing polygon.

If you set glFrontFace(GL_CW) then front facing polygons have to specified in a clockwise order.

Set glCullFace(GL_BACK) to make it easier to see which side is being rendered. If you dont see anything, you know its back facing

Thanks. I kind of confused myself writing that post. Thanks for the quick reply. Got it to work correctly.
