Developer / company: NVIDIA

The Cg language makes it possible for you to control the shape, appearance, and motion of objects drawn using programmable graphics hardware. It marries programmatic control of these attributes with the incredible speed and capabilities of today's graphics processors. Never before have computer graphics practitioners, whether artists or programmers, had so much control over the real-time images they generate.

Cg provides developers with a complete programming platform that is easy to use and enables the fast creation of special effects and real-time cinematic-quality experiences on multiple platforms. By providing a new level of abstraction, Cg removes the need for developers to program directly to the graphics hardware assembly language, and thereby more easily target OpenGL, DirectX, Windows, Linux, Macintosh OS X, and console platforms such as the Xbox. Cg was developed in close collaboration with Microsoft Corporation and is compatible with both the OpenGL API and Microsoft's High-Level Shading Language (HLSL) for DirectX 9.0.

Cg stands for "C for graphics." The C programming language is a popular, general-purpose language invented in the 1970s. Because of its popularity and clean design, C provided the basis for several subsequent programming languages. For example, C++ and Java base their syntax and structure largely on C. The Cg language bases itself on C as well. If you are familiar with C or one of the many languages derived from C, then Cg will be easy to learn.

The Cg software seems to be old or discontinued.
Such programs may not work on modern operating systems properly, are no longer available and supported by their original developers, or are simply obsolete for their purpose. Sometimes companies offer limited support through their website.
