Hey everyone,


I see everyone talking about WebGL in here, but I still use classic canvas graphics. Is this method going to be outdated, or is WebGL only an alternative ?


Anyway, I haven't found any good tutorial to start learning WebGL. I have never used OpenGL and all the tutorials I've found were talking about shaders and stuff, while they never explain what it is :(

Do you know some good tutorials ?


Thanks in advance

I don't know about tutorials but its a format that seems to be being favoured by Chrome and Firefox browsers but not by IE or Safari. Given IE usage is going down I don't think Microsoft can force whatever their own patented alternative would be like they might have been able to do several years ago.

Well, many people nowadays just lean towards Three.js as an abstraction layer for common tasks.

But I prefer to understand the code behind as well, so I can recommend these sites for an introduction:


- Learning WebGL: http://learningwebgl...g/?page_id=1217

- WebGL Essentials: http://net.tutsplus....entials-part-i/

- Getting Started with WebGL: http://docs.webplatf...rted_with_webgl
