I have panel showing some instrments, which give attitude info for an aircraft. the panel uses glOrtho, and the instruments themselves are basically a collection of polys which rotate according to the pitch, roll and yaw of the aircraft.
this works fine apart from the fact that it looks a bit naff, especially considering i have a 3d model of the aircraft available. what i would really like to do is use the aircraft model instead of the polys. unfortunately, the model was created using the real dimensions of the aircraft and the sizes mean that the model is tiny on the screen.
now, i understand that ortho doesn’t do depth, but is there any way to zoom in to the model? if not would it be possible to use frustrum for the model and then overlay the rest of the display using ortho, or am i just dreaming? is there anything else that might work, or will i just have to redo the whole thing around my aircraft model,which i really don’t want to have to do.
