WebGL Programming Guide: Interactive 3D Graphics Programming with WebGL, Rough Cuts
This is the Rough Cut version of the printed book.
You’ll learn step-by-step, through realistic examples, building your skills as you move from simple to complex solutions for building visually appealing web pages and 3D applications with WebGL. WebGL and 3D pioneers Dr. Kouichi and Dr. Rodger Lea offer easy-to-understand tutorials on every technology you’ll need, plus 100 sample programs, each demonstrating a specific WebGL topic.
You’ll move from basic techniques such as rendering, animating, and texturing triangles, all the way to advanced techniques such as lighting, interacting with 3D objects, fogging, shadowing and working with 3D models generated by 3D authoring tools. This book won’t just teach you WebGL programming best practices: it will give you a library of code you can use to jumpstart your own WebGL projects.
