triangle strips and terrain...

hy there

is it possible to do a terrain with “one” triangle strip?

i draw it with a few strips (the rows)

and how expensive are calls to glBegin, glEnd?

and what is the thing with indexed triangles? good tuts required…

bye folks


Quite sure it’s very hard - if possible to draw a whole terrain with a single strip.

Why are you asking for glBegin/glEnd? Since you’re using vertex arrays? Because you’re using vertex arrays right?

ya iam using vertex arrays…better a 3dimensional vertex array, and i asked because i’ve done my terrain in such a way

thats quite easy…but the many calls of glBegin and End r not so good…IMHO
