I’ve mentioned a number of excellent OpenGL ES 2.0 tutorials and examples and most recently showed a great example explaining an approach to rendering the milky way galaxy.
Here’s a set of tutorials from Abdullah Dib created using OpenGL ES 2.0 complete with working Xcode example projects that you can run on your iOS device.
The tutorials cover:
- Loading a 3D model using the Assimp open source library (a 3D model loading library that supports 3DS, OBJ, X and Doom models)
- How to perform simple bump mapping
- Skinning 3D models
- Creating a controllable 3D camera
- Water reflections
- Creating a skybox
- Lighting with bumps
- Environment reflection
Here’s an image showing the water reflection tutorial in action:
You can find the tutorials over at Abdullah Dib’s site here.
A great set of examples covering many things you will likely find yourself wanting to do when working with OpenGL ES.
