DirectX confusion Help!

Recommended Posts

I''ve been working with directdraw for some time now, and want to advance into 3D programming with direcX. But I''m confused, are there 2 3d API''s for Directx? I mean, is Direct3D8 and DirectX Graphics the same thing? Or are they seperate? Am I right in saying that for directX 8, Direct3D and DirectX Graphics are not the same thing? And what about for version 9? Please help me clear up my mind!

DirectX Graphics is indeed Direct3D for versions of DX after 7, so in DX8 and 9. The namechange came about since DirectDraw was dropped in DX8.
