AmanithVG First Tech Preview Released

AmanithVG is an implementation of OpenVG, the new application programming interface (API) for hardware accelerated 2D vector and raster graphics, created by the Khronos group. Differently from any other OpenVG implementation, AmanithVG is entirely built on top of OpenGL (from 1.1 to 2.0, using extensions where available) and OpenGL|ES (1.1 and 2.0) APIs. Thanks to these three pipelines, AmanithVG can grant high quality graphics on any kind of 3D chipset already available on the market, achieving tens of times faster performance than the better software rasterizers, especially in terms of full screen / high resolution animations and complex special effects (transparencies, fading, realtime rotoscaling and many others).
