Thats my first post on this board, so
dont take it too serios
Im writing my Renderer and
I dont know which statechanges i should manage my self.
void renderer::BindTexture(uint id)
if(id != bound_texture)
bound_texture = id;
Is this really neccessary, or does the driver
this kind of optimization for me?
Managing all the important states (textures,
vertexprograms, vbos) my self is … well, a bit work intesive
especially when you use textureunits and cubemaps which
require even more state changes.
I sort everything in my scene by texture, but every object calls
renderer->SetTexture(mytexture); in their Render() function.
So the state managing would only cut down the
amount of glDoSomeThing calls. Is this really worth the effort?
Sorry for my bad english
