This means that Qt3D will […]
Till Adam speaks about why Qt matters in the Big Picture.
Abstract: Qt5 introduces better support for OpenGL from the QPA/Lighthouse abstraction, through a new set of OpenGL classes up to QtQuick 2 and Qt3D. OpenGL is also very often used for games and as the central content widget in desktop applications. With the advent of QtQuick 2 it is now easy to write entire user […]
Abstract: Modern OpenGL abandons the old fixed-function pipeline in exchange for a programmable pipeline using shaders and buffer objects. This offers much more flexibility to developers and opens the door to a huge range of effects and techniques whilst at the same time making available huge performance improvements. This presentation will teach you about the […]
Abstract: “QtQuick in Qt5 uses OpenGL to deliver fluid, performant visuals, and an internal scene-graph structure to permit threaded rendering, decoupling the main application thread from interacting directly with the graphics driver. For developers work with an existing rendering or visualisation technology, this presents both an opportunity but also problems; QtQuick offers a compelling, modern […]
