Is QML compatible with C++ OpenGL can I manipulate it with C++ for off screen rendering

  • This is interesting but before I start learning it I would like to know if it is something that would make my project easier to build which requires off screen rendering and physics

    In Qt 5, QML is implemented using OpenGL. Can't get more "compatible" than that ;-) Check out QQuickItem documentation for more info.

    In Qt 6 it is different, because implementation is independent of the 3D API (it uses OpenGL, DirectX, Metal etc. depending on platform).

    For offscreen rendering, run your app with offscreen platform plugin:

    yourApp.exe -platform=offscreen
