Visual effects in openframeworks

Hi, I have been trying to add visual effects to my project that I made using ofxKinect in Openframeworks on my Ubuntu machine. I used OpenGL but it didn’t turn out well. Can someone please suggest me an alternative? How do I render some cool visual effects or may be animating objects to my project. Can Unity3D help? Is there some fix for it in Openframeworks for Ubuntu? Or is there something else that can be used?

You might want to take a look at GLSL, shader language for OpenGL. What went wrong with OpenGL? The fastest workaround would be using this ofxFX addon, it uses GLSL shaders and it might give you a good abstraction.

Ah I am not good at OpenGL, I focused more on other algorithms of my project and never paid much attention to visual effects. I made just some basic spheres and cylindrical objects but they aren’t looking any good. I still have a lot to work upon, but I was just wondering what could be the best solution for this trouble?

And thank you so much for your reply. I’ll go through it! Thanks again :smiley:
