I am looking for an algorithm that improves (optimizes) an existing triangle mesh.
Can anybody point me in the right direction ? Or even to a piece of code that shows how to do that ?
I donīt think that I need face swapping, only smoothing.

I think it work with triangle list too:

It optimize the triangle list for cache performance.

What exactly do you want, Optimization of Mesh (Triangle Strips and the like) or Smoothing, a completly different thing.

When you ask for something, make sure you know what you want and what you ask.

The best method that I can think of is triangles to triangle strip conversion. The most convincing program that I have seen so far is

I'm not sure how big a difference triangle strip conversion actually make a big difference on new cards. Can someone help out with this.
