Front and Backbuffer explanation

Post by russose »


First, Happy new year!
Has someone some tips to better understand how Blender manages the back and front buffer? Blender is rendering everything about menus in the front buffer...ok...

Blender render all the user interface in Backbuffer...set a flag to say "backbuffer ok" and then swap the buffers? Or is the back buffer also used in an other way?
I ask this information to efficiently implement two buffering for OpenGL ES only working with backbuffer.

Thanks for the help,
