I would like to add a "product logo" to my openGL 3D graphics window.  I thought about handling it as a background texture, but was looking for other ideas.  The product logo is a 2D BMP (of course, could be other format) and just needs to sit in the window (not frame or menu bar).  What do you guys think?  Thanks much!

Do you want just a splash screen with your company logo or something when the applicatation starts up or is loading where you simply display a 2d bitmap?

I will probably do a splash screen as well...but I was looking for someway to have the logo sit in a corner of the drawing canvas so that if users printed their creation, the logo was printed as well.

Thanks....Rocketchick

Just create a quad, slap your logo on it, and render it to the screen.  Andy Pike has a good tutorial on hud objects here:
