HoloPlay C/C++ API (beta)

The HoloPlay C/C++ API is being deprecated. If you'd like to integrate a custom rendering solution with the Looking Glass, please contact us at

The HoloPlay API is a small shared library written in C++ with C bindings for Looking Glass systems. It allows you to make simple function calls in an OpenGL environment to draw light field images to the Looking Glass.

Basic usage involves rendering or loading a texture for each view, passing those views to the API, and then instructing the API to process the views into the final light field image. Optionally, if your views are already composed into Looking Glass's Quilt Format, you can pass the quilt and render a light field image from that.
