Hi UDOO world,
We have compiled Qt with OPENGL ES 2.0 support for UDOO board and we made a funny 3D animation with Qt 3D 2.0 (Qt Quick 2.0 library) to test it. We found it runs very fluently on UDOO i.MX6 Quad board.
In the video you can see how it plays on HDMI full HD (1920×1080) TV with a refresh of 60 frame/sec.
Moving the mouse we can control animation speed and perspective.
Moreover we have attached to the board a 7” LVDS display with 800×480 resolution and frame rate of 30 fps to see Ubuntu desktop.
This was the system environment:
GPU memory reserved size of 256 MB.
Qt version was 5.2.0 with qt3d support. The app was written in QML language.
Used bootargs was: console=ttymxc1,115200 root=/dev/mmcblk0p1 rootwait rw fixrtc rootflags=barrier=1 mem=768M arm_freq=996 video=mxcfb0:dev=hdmi,1920x1080M@60,if=RGB24 video=mxcfb1:dev=ldb,LDB-WVGA@30,if=RGB666 fbmem=24M

Create animation with Qt3D is fast and amazing, soon we will create a “How-To” to explain how to use it.
