Hello, I'm trying to render a mesh with OpenGL, where each face has a unique color based on it's ID. For this I'm trying to use this macro: #define INDEX_TO_GLCOLOR3(x) glColor3ub( ((x)&0xFF), (((x)>>8)&0xFF), (((x)>>16)&0xFF) ) The problem I'm having is that OpenGL is drawing the mesh with a color defined in an early stage using glMaterialfv( GL_FRONT_AND_BACK, GL_AMBIENT, ambient ); glMaterialfv( GL_FRONT_AND_BACK, GL_DIFFUSE, diffuse ); Do I have to disable something to get glColor3ub working? Thank you, Diego

I found it...

glDisable( GL_LIGHTING );

If GL_LIGHTING is enabled GL uses

glMaterialfv( GL_FRONT_AND_BACK, GL_AMBIENT, ambient );
glMaterialfv( GL_FRONT_AND_BACK, GL_DIFFUSE, diffuse );

If disabled, it uses

glColor()
