How to learn openGL for use in MAX

Dec 22 2013 | 10:02 pm

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.

there’s a lot of tutorials on this very website :
Delicious maxmsp tutorials feature some opengl stuff : (from #20 or so)
a lot of jitter recipes are about opengl (from book 3 or so ?) :
yes, you kinda need to find stuff yourself… i think you’ll get faster learning with such things that reading those big books

Check my profile with my posts, I’ve asked Rob these questions before and he gave very clear answers with where to start. :)
