I have to do some real time animation of sea creatures like jellyfish, corals, shells and so on. I just want to create some pretty graphics, I dont need to scientifically simulate the real growth of these creatures. I dont like openGL at all because I have to think about the reshaping of the window,projection,lighting and many things. Please suggest me something else. I also heard that openGL becomes easy using MFC. Is it so? Those who are working with openGL and MFC, please suggest.

if you want real time rendering of 3d objects the only options im aware of are opengl and directx, but i think what you want is a higher level library.

i don't think mfc will help much unless you just want a simpler way to open a window and handle events but there are better library's to do this available.

there are a large number of helper library's for both that can handle some of the lower level details ranging from setting up a 3d world with one function call to complete engines like ogre.

if you could be more specific about your needs we could recommend one

Specifically, I want

1. easily create and handle multiple viewports
2. taking inputs through mouse and keyboard
3. easy setup of lighting and shading
4. easy texture mapping
