Question with Tutorial 10

Recommended Posts

Ok I''m a newbie gl coder so bear with me and tell me if I missed something in the lesson. Ok I would like to know why it uses triangles to draw the scene and how it makes them look like squares. --Insert smart and witty signature here--

It uses triangles because they are faster than quads. It just uses two triangles to make up a quad, instead of one quad. For example:


|---| |---|
| /| | |
| / | | |
|/ | | |
|---| vs |---|
