OGLE : 3D Screen Capture

January 24th, 2006 | Filed under: Programming, Virtual Reality | 1 Comment »

OGLE (The OpenGLExtractor) is a software package that allows for the capture and re-use of 3D geometry data from 3D graphics applications running on Microsoft Windows. It works by observing the data flowing between 3D applications and the system’s OpenGL library, and recording that data in a standard 3D file format. In other words, a ‘screen grab’ or ‘view source’ operation for 3D data. Grab city-scapes from Google Earth, characters from Warcraft, Second Life, etc.
