OpenGL for Windows supports off-screen rendering into Windows device-independent bitmaps.
Pros:
A standard WGL feature
Cons:
Only usable with Windows 95/NT OpenGL
Basically, a bitmap is created with CreateDIBSection. A pixel format with the PFD_DRAW_TO_BITMAP, PFD_SUPPORT_OPENGL, PFD_SUPPORT_GDI flags must be chosen. After creating a WGL context and binding it, OpenGL rendering can proceed.

I found on this page:

... I agree with AP though.
