Class SoMaterialElement


  • public class SoMaterialElement
    extends SoReplacedElement
    Manages several properties that need to be lazily tracked for rendering. This element manages several properties such as colors, that need to be lazily tracked for rendering. Allows Open Inventor property nodes to set these properties without immediately making any rendering calls. Thus we avoid making redundant rendering calls to set, for example, the material color. Open Inventor rendering nodes then request that the values of any properties that are relevant to that shape and "out of date" (not current with rendering state) be sent to the rendering engine.

    Includes:
    Transparencies
    GLColorMaterial
    PolygonStipple
    Color index
