Mac OS X Tips

The following tips and tutorials for Mac OS X users, provided by Quicktime movie media are provided by People/EricWing:

The following are a series of screencasts that demonstrate how to get started with OpenSceneGraph on Mac OS X:

This demonstrates how to install OpenSceneGraph. This version is intended for users already familiar with Mac OS X. (1:04)

This demonstrates how to install OpenSceneGraph from the binary package. This version is intended for users who may not be very familiar with Mac OS X. (5:04)

This demonstrates how to create your first OpenSceneGraph application using our OSG Xcode template. (3:07)

This demonstrates how to build an OpenSceneGraph program using the command line (Terminal.app). (4:24)

This demonstrates how to create an application that is completely self-contained and is drag-and-droppable/relocatable. Frameworks, PlugIns, and Resources are embedded in the .app bundle, thus avoiding the need for installers and avoiding issues like dll-hell. There is also a quick demonstration on how to enable Universal Binary building at 15:46. Though done in the context of OSG, these are general Mac OS X concepts and suitable for anybody doing development on Mac OS X. (17:12)
