comment What are the factors that determine the default frequency of a shader call?
GLUT is meant for experimentation, not for production software. This is probably the root of the problem.

comment What are the factors that determine the default frequency of a shader call?
Shader rates depend on your draw calls. For example, if you render one triangle, that will lead to execution of (at least) three vertex shaders and zero to lots of fragment shaders. Depending on stuff (and gl version) you're using there may also be other shader stages executed various times. But all of this is rather irrelevant for a software developer, apart from the general concept.

comment What are the factors that determine the default frequency of a shader call?
Framerate may be limited by your display refresh rate (if vertical sync is enabled). It may be lower than that, depending on how your program commands rendering. If you, for example, sleep() couple seconds after each frame, the framerate will be rather low.

That's.. not.. how opengl works. It's just a render pipeline.

Are you talking about frame rates or shader call frequencies? The first depends on your application, the second shouldn't matter to you (unless you're in driver/hw devel).

comment Why lib3ds can't open this max model?
Like I said, I doubt one exists. Load the model in max and export in some other format.
