Windowless Rendering


I want to render OpenGL content to a picture without opening a window.
I solved that for windows, but would rather have a platform independent solution. What would be a good approach? I must admit, that I haven’t done anything with OpenGL on Linux, yet.

Thanks, Peter

Use Mesa . It has a really cool offscreen renderer that can render directly into a buffer you give it. No platform dependent code at all needed.

Thanks a lot,

I found that part inside the docs.
