GLOverlay

Published on Friday October 27, 2006 by Zack Rusin in Aggregated | Comments

I uploaded another wonderful Qt example to http://ktown.kde.org/~zrusin/examples. This example has been written by Trond Kjernaasen (one of the Samurai Graphics Assassins, hobbies include death metal and beating Trolltech's QA department at ping-pong). The example shows a wonderful mixing of OpenGL with Qt native rendering. You can type in any phrase, the application will try to look up the images on flicker and then display them in a very eye-candish kind of a way. The application looks like this (but remember it's all nicely animated so you want to see it on your machine).
Trond uses pbuffers to make it all work together so make sure your card supports them. Direct link to the code is here. (some people reported crashes when running on latest NVIDIA driver so watch out ;) )
