- NEW - Uses OpenGL as the supporting software - An appendix explains how to obtain it (free downloads) and how to install it on a wide variety of platforms.
- Enables students using a variety of machines to produce dazzling graphics, it gives students an immediate sense of success by allowing them to make intricate 2D drawings right in Chapter 2.
- NEW - Uses C++ as the underlying programming language - Introduces useful classes for graphics, but does not force a rigid object-oriented posture.
- Suggests how students who wish to stay with C can use alternative structures.
- NEW - Earlier and more in-depth treatment of 3D graphics and the underlying mathematics.
- Allows students to produce realistic 3D graphics much earlier in a
