apitrace


What is apitrace?

apitrace consists of a set of tools to:

  • trace OpenGL, OpenGL ES, Direct3D, and DirectDraw APIs calls to a file;
  • replay the recorded calls from a file, on any machine and, for OpenGL and OpenGL ES, on any operating system;
  • inspect state at any call while replaying;
  • view framebuffers and textures;
  • view call data;
  • edit trace files;
  • profile performance of traces;
