Hello,

I know that this is a java forum but android is java based. Any way, does anyone know of a good Android OpenGL ES Sphere how to tutorial?



Many thanks in advanced.

What have you tried so far and where are you stuck?
Are you having problems with OpenGL or drawing a Sphere?

well I really don't know where to begin. I am pretty new to opengl ES. I understand that I am going to probably have to use triangle strips for most of sphere and triangle fans for the poles, but I really don't know where to start. How do I specify where the vertices should be in the sphere?


If you know of any good sphere tutorials. I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks, but that wasn't what I am looking for. I have looked at Nehe, ZeusCMD...etc but I need something more explicit on how to create a sphere.


Cheers,

Drew

Of course it's your choice, but if I were new to OpenGL like you said you were, I would start off small, trying to understand and learn the basics, instead of looking for some ready made code to draw a sphere.
