Now that I'm working out how to keep track of the locations of my objects outside of OGL, another question has popped into my head. Would reloading a fresh set of  pre-transformed vertices into OpenGL every frame be significantly slower than using glTranslate, glScale etc?

I'm dealing with 2D here, usually arrays of 12 values.

something like:

draw(){
vertices = somewhereElse.getVertices();
vertexBuffer.put(vertices);

//blah blah blah

gl.glVertexPointer(3, GL10.GL_FLOAT, 0, vertexBuffer);
//draw stuff

//blah blah blah
}


Also, thanks for the SAT advice. I might use something like it.
