| Comments

Another new tutorials is finally available at GitHub! In this part we look into using textures with shaders.
In an sub-part of the tutorial it is explained how to use textures to do font rendering in OpenGL!

Now a quick overview what to learn in the new tutorials:

Texture tutorial

  • Creating textures
    • Wrapping
    • Filtering
    • Uploading the pixel data to the GPU
  • Using the texture in shaders

Font tutorial

  • Creating a texture atlas
    • Loading TrueType Fonts
    • Determine width and height for the texture
    • Generating the texture and draw font glyphs on it
  • Rendering the text

That font rendering part is already using batch rendering, so the next tutorial will be about how to create a batch!
