Fragment Depth in glsl

22 February 2012 - 07:48 PM

Hello

I'm looking for a way to get the correct depth value in GLSL. I am rendering a cube and I am stepping inside that cube (it's a volume rendering application).

In the picture below
drawing.png

The blue dots should have a deeper z value than the red one. However, when I am displaying the value of z as a color, I am getting the same color at the blue (on the outside) as the red dot which is in front (meaning I am getting the same depth). I am trying with gl_FragCoord.z (and tried several others too). Does anyone have a suggestion what I could use.

Thanks

front to back blending issues on Linux

02 August 2011 - 10:50 AM

Hello

I'm implementing a front to back slice volume rendering and I am having issues with blending.

Basically I should be using glBlendFunc(GL_ONE_MINUS_DST_ALPHA,GL_ONE); but it does not work while on Linux using glBlendFunc(GL_ONE_MINUS_SRC_ALPHA,GL_ONE); works!!! I'm also testing on macbook and glBlendFunc(GL_ONE_MINUS_DST_ALPHA,GL_ONE); works there (as it should). Also with only glBlendFunc(GL_ONE_MINUS_SRC_ALPHA,GL_ONE); I am having issue when the background is white!!!

Would anybody know why this could be???

Versions of OpenGL
Macbook: Opengl 2.1
Linux: Opengl 4.1

pinpong issues in opengl

18 July 2011 - 10:10 PM

Hello

I'm doing some ping ponging stuff and I am experiencing some weird behaviour with my code. I have 2 shaders which alter the texture and a third one which just displays stuff.

I have a certain number of passes in my program which i can increase and decrease (to make sure that the ping-ponging work). According to my logic, if the number of passes is 0, the color displayed should be black, for 1 pass it should be black, for 2 passes red, for 3 passes yellow, 4 passes orange, ...

However, for 2 passes I'm already getting yellow.

Any help would be very greatly appreciated. Been stuck with that for some time!!!

Thanks
