I am still learning openGl. How can you change background color. I know how to do that What i want is to make the top half one color and the bottom half another also i want to be able to control those colors by using the arrow keys, Example If i push the left key (top color) it will go from light blue to dark blue and the same for the right key. The bottm screen will be a different color 3dmodeler

Draw a plane just over the far plane, do what you want modifiying the vertices color. You have this in my master thesis, download it and read page 57.

Download "project work" pdf from 1.0"
http://sourceforge.net/projects/colladaloader/

The result is a nice gradient or background like this:

You can use that code, and add easily what you said aobut changing its color.

Hope it helps.
