Release Notes

GL Spline PatchGL Point Patch

A set of 6 patches for rendering OpenGL primitives such as Points, Lines, Triangles, Quads, and Cubic Splines.

Primitives include:

  • GL Context Information (formerly an independent plugin)
  • GL Point
  • GL Line
  • GL Triangle
  • GL Quad
  • GL Spline (modified version of QCSpline by Caleb Cannon)

Support for texturing in GL Triangle and GL Quad is planned for a future release --- these patches solid colors and gradients for now.
