Harnessing the power of an elaborate graphics engine, such as Ogre 3D is time-consuming, but a highly rewarding pursuit. Developers, over the world, attest to Ogre's elegance, versatility, and efficiency, not to mention that its code is open source and supported by a thriving online community. This book explores many useful and fun ways to leverage Ogre 3D, to make your graphics application fully-featured and entertaining.

OGRE (Object-oriented Graphics Rendering Engine) 3D is a scene-oriented, flexible 3D engine written in C++ designed to make it easier and more intuitive for developers to produce applications utilizing hardware-accelerated 3D graphics.

Graphics application development with OGRE 3D may start small, but may soon balloon into monstrously complex beasts, which just can't be all understood at once. This book will help you to easily develop applications using OGRE 3D.

OGRE 3D 1.7 Application Development Cookbook will help solve common problems you may face while developing 3D graphics applications using OGRE 3D. You will learn to create various types of Windows applications, scene querying, and visibility analysis among other things from this book.

This book includes some advanced recipes involved in developing applications with OGRE 3D. Each recipe deals with adding some specific feature to your application.

The book first covers creating various types of Windows applications available for the OGRE developer, creating plugins for customization, and OGRE resources management. You will then learn to efficiently implement various input methods for OGRE applications followed by managing scenes and objects impressively. Lights, special effects, and materials that provide enhancing effects are covered next. Further, character motion and collision detection are included followed by animations and multimedia, which help in producing a thorough professional look. Finally, we wrap it up with scene queries and views.

OGRE 3D 1.7 Application Development Cookbook provides a great reference for your OGRE 3D application development needs and helps you to deliver impressive results more quickly and with greater ease.
