I've registered here since I'm having a few questions regarding an university project.
The goal is to display a virtual hand on the screen which is movable via a motion tracking device.
I have knowledge in C and have just started to dive into a couple of OpenGL tutorials.
However, I'm asking myself whether this is the right approach. I'd like to not render the hand directly in OpenGL, but rather build a 3D Model (I do have experience with CAD programs, for example) and have it movable on display by analyzing the data from my motion tracking device.
Do any of you have any tips on how to approach this project? I'd be very thankful.
I hope I'm not hurting any posting guidelines or anything. Also, English is not my first language so please excuse a certain "sloppyness".
