How to learn openGL for use in MAX


    Dec 23 2013 | 6:02 am
    Hi,
    I am very interested in making my own graphical user interface objects in Max, which is why I am very excited about the JSUI object.
    Unfortunately I have only a basic understand of javascript and C/C++. I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to the best way to learn openGL as it pertains to MAX.
    I have what seem to be the top two openGL reference books but it sounds like they may be overkill and difficult for a beginner. I have gone through the Max tutorial but I don't know where to go from there. Thanks for any suggestions.

      yes, you kinda need to find stuff yourself... i think you'll get faster learning with such things that reading those big books
