    How can I optimize this code?

    Thanks at all! The NeHe Lesson seems to be quit good, some month ago I've started at lesson 1. :-) @uavfun: to do it with less triangles seems to be quit hard, cause the data is fix and come from a comprehensive computation... But you are right, the data is contiguous, it describes a hugh surface, divided in triangles.
  2. int Draw (Zone zone) { glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT | GL_DEPTH_BUFFER_BIT); glLoadIdentity(); glTranslatef(0.0f,0.0f,-zoom); glPushMatrix(); glMultMatrixf(Transform.M); glColor3f(0.5f, 0.6f, 0.7f); glBegin(GL_TRIANGLES); for (int i = 0; i < zone.Triangles.size(); i++) { double x_1 = zone.Triangles.P1.X(); double y_1 = zone.Triangles.P1.Y(); double z_1 = zone.Triangles.P1.Z(); double x_2 = zone.Triangles.P2.X(); double y_2 = zone.Triangles.P2.Y(); double z_2 = zone.Triangles.P2.Z(); double x_3 = zone.Triangles.P3.X(); double y_3 = zone.Triangles.P3.Y(); double z_3 = zone.Triangles.P3.Z(); glVertex3d(x_1,y_1,z_1); glVertex3d(x_2,y_2,z_2); glVertex3d(x_3,y_3,z_3); } glEnd(); glPopMatrix(); glFlush (); return TRUE; } While doing some Mouse-manipulation (zoom, rotation ...) the redrawing of the triangles is much to slow, because I have more than 100000 triangles. What can I do? By the way: How can I mark the code as code?
  3. Hello! I have a huge set of coordinates, which represent single triangles. That means, that more than 200000 (small) triangles are located in the 3d-space in that way, that they describe the open water surface. I want to animate the water. Therefore I have the same huge data for every timestep. But for the moment I have enough problems in drawing the triangles for just one timestep. The easy way doing it with glBegin...glVertex3d...glEnd for every triangle is much to slow. If I want to change the view to my result via mouse movements, I have no smooth animation. Any ideas doing the drawing in a better way? And by the way: What might be an easy way to shade the triangles that they look like real water?
