Leopard Technical Notes: Games
Mac OS X provides programming interfaces that work together to create a seamless visual environment for games. Developers can use three main graphics technologies: Quartz 2D, the graphics library that leverages the PDF drawing model; a platform-optimized OpenGL stack that handles three-dimensional graphics; and Quartz Extreme, the unique Mac OS X windowing system that brings together 2D and 3D graphics, and composites 2D images, 3D images, and video in real time.
