What differences are there between Topaz Studio 2 and Topaz Studio Classic?
Studio 2 is an overhaul of the previous Topaz Studio app, which we’re calling Topaz Studio Classic. The key differences are as follows:
|Operating System||Windows 7, 8, 10 (64-bit only)||OS 10.12 and up|
|Display Size||800 x 600||1024 x 640|
|OpenGL Support Level What’s this?||OpenGL 3.3|
|Internet Connection||Required for login only|
OpenGL (Open Graphics Library) is the computer industry’s standard application program interface ( API ) for defining 2-D and 3-D graphic images. Prior to OpenGL, any company developing a graphical application typically had to rewrite the graphics part of it for each operating system platform and had to be cognizant of the graphics hardware as well. With OpenGL, an application can create the same effects in any operating system using any OpenGL-adhering graphics adapter.
OpenGL specifies a set of “commands” or immediately executed functions. Each command directs a drawing action or causes special effects. A list of these commands can be created for repetitive effects. OpenGL is independent of the windowing characteristics of each operating system, but provides special “glue” routines for each operating system that enable OpenGL to work in that system’s windowing environment. OpenGL comes with a large number of built-in capabilities requestable through the API. These include hidden surface removal, alpha blending (transparency), antialiasing , texture mapping, pixel operations, viewing and modeling transformations, and atmospheric effects (fog, smoke, and haze).
