  1. Do you also know some good (free) OpenGL books? – Thanks

    • There is a version of the Red Book online, The OpenGL Programmers Guide, but as far as I know it is for OpenGL 1.1. OpenGL has evolved a lot and if there are books out there they will probably be outdated. If anyone knows of links to free books, 3D in general or OpenGL, I’ll be happy to post them in here.
