Agar is a toolkit for graphical applications. It is not a large monolithic library that will take over your application, instead it provides a set of components organized into compact and integration-friendly libraries implementing specific features. The libraries are stable, well-maintained and in constant development since 2002. Agar is highly portable and is being used under many different platforms.

Supported Features


  • Object-Oriented Design
  • Abstraction of the rendering API. Currently only OpenGL is supported.
  • An efficient representation of polyhedral models using a modified halfedge method.
  • Hierarchical structures allowing efficient view-frustum culling for both indoor and outdoor environments as well as physics calculations.
  • Ideal object representations such as smooth surfaces (with suitable polygonal approximations always available for query).
  • The ability to query geometrical information efficiently at any time.

The Agar-SG project is focused solely on geometry and graphics. It does not implement any type of logic system or physical simulation, although its structures were designed to accomodate common physics algorithms. * Render-to-Texture Render-to-texture support. * Particle System * Water Various effects such as water and particle systems.


  • Lightmapping Light maps.


  • Bumpmapping
  • HDR (High Dynamic Range) texture support.
  • Bump mapping.
  • Parallax mapping.


  • Skeletal Animation Skeletal animation with vertex shader support.
