GL Studio Basic


GL Studio Basic is an award-winning tool which enables developers to build GLS_Basic_IMG_01high-fidelity graphics and fully interactive controls into their software products, enhancing the level of realism and sophistication of their development efforts.This entry-level option contains all of the basic elements necessary for creating feature-rich and interactive graphical user interfaces to enhance any desktop-based software product. The virtual components and environments created with GL Studio deliver significant benefits including:

  • 100% correlation between the Industrial Designer’s vision and the end product
  • Ability to reuse the design all the way through the development process: Prototyping, Verification and Validation, Integration, and Deployment
  • Shorter production cycles and reduced overall costs
  • Natively supports 3D OpenGL content
  • Broad support for desktop and embedded hardware systems


  • C++ Code Generator
  • Interface from PSD images
  • Animated schematics
  • Document generation
  • Python scripting support


  • Knobs
  • Switches
  • Push buttons
  • Odometers


  • Unicode text
  • Nine patch graphics
  • Animation support


  • Object-Oriented
  • OpenGL
  • Windows and Linux
GL Studio is a Graphical User Interface (GUI) development toolkit that allows users to create rich 2D and 3D interactive graphics with Object-Oriented behavior embedded in each software object. The core of GL Studio’s success is the Reusable Software Object (RSO); not only can you program in Object-Oriented languages within the GL Studio Editor, you can also generate Object-Oriented code that makes calls to the OpenGL-based implementations in the GL Studio libraries.You have the ability to generate human readable C++ source code, which is used to build RSOs. As the RSOs are developed in-house and logically sectioned off from the parent designs, they become valuable corporate assets that developers can use from one program to another. This allows companies to leverage the RSOs to reduce development costs and maximize profits.
GL Studio is an OpenGL-based application.
