Ready Player One, generated entirely in GSL/OpenGL, uses a ground-breaking programming technique in music video creation. Pure code captures the retro sci-fi spirit of Em Harriss’s hauntingly beautiful vocals; an alien ghost trapped in the machine.
We’ve already covered the basics of setting up a scene, a camera, the render loop ( animation loop ) and some other basics about geometry and transformations in previous tutorials. In this lesson, let’s dig into applying textures and materials to “skin” our objects and adding lights, so we can see them. Read more…
So in the first lesson, you learned about setting up the files, getting set up with a 3D helper library and doing your first render. In fact we jumped ahead in that first lesson and did a simple rotation, which is the first of our transformations we are going to look at.
If you have been following along with the Learning tutorials so far, you’ll recognize the basis of experiment comes from Lesson 5 – Making multiple objects move In this demo, I am using radial gradient fills, a range of colors, and some good ole fashion trigonometry to create a nice 3D effect.

I recently found myself in need of a 360 panorama. I wanted the user to be able to explore using the mouse or touch and zoom in and out. I wanted simple, clean animation. Most important it had to work on mobile and older browsers ( IE9+ ). This meant a NO FLASH , and NO WebGL or plugins solution.
After looking around at a number of potential plugins and players, I discovered as you may have, that there is not much out there. Most require purchase of a license or are not fully developed.
