Programming a green glowing screen display...

Recommended Posts

Hello, I would like to know what would be the best way to program a display that shows 3D wireframe graphics with glowing effect as if it was a laser screen display. Should I go with Direct 3D (how do you do wireframe in direct 3D?) or should I just draw the lines and make a "glow" filter? The D3D method would allow the graphics to rotate in real-time wich would be an advantage, but it''s not necessary. Thanks.

Ummm....... Do you know what D3D is?

D3D will do virtually nothing for you in the way of rotating those lines. You do that absolutely by yourself. All D3D will do is take a list of points and draw lines in between every other one. But it will do it very fast, and blend colors between the points if you set colors for them. Of course, D3D is a little overkill for drawing lines...
