- D3D11 has full feature support and is stable & tested. Feature Level 11 hardware is assumed - Radeon 4000⁄5000+, GeForce 400+, Intel Ivy Bridge, falling back to WARP software emulation if this hardware isn’t present.
- *OpenGL is only explicitly supported for the core profile 3.2+ subset of features, check the OpenGL wiki page for details.
- Currently the Qt UI is only used on linux. It is working well with a TODO list of remaining work. Work is on-going for it to replace the .NET UI on windows.
There are binary releases available, built from the release targets. If you just want to use the program and you ended up here, this is what you want :).
It’s recommended that if you’re new you start with the stable builds. Nightly builds are available every day from master branch here if you need it, but correspondingly may be less stable.
As mentioned above there are some youtube videos showing the use of some basic features and an introduction/overview.

Contributing & Development
Building RenderDoc is fairly straight forward. See CONTRIBUTING.md for more details.
I’ve added some notes on how to contribute, as well as where to get started looking through the code in CONTRIBUTING.md.
