I''m trying to create a texture object in OpenGL from a bitmap. (And by bitmap, I mean a true one-bit-per-pixel OpenGL type bitmap, not that Microsoft abomination file type.) My first thought was to just use glTexImage2D as follows:
  
const unsigned char BITMAP_DATA [] = { /* pixels are here */ };
const int BITMAP_PITCH = 1; // Number of bytes per row

const int BITMAP_ROWS = 12; // Number of rows (the height)

const int BITMAP_COLS =  8; // Number of pixels per column


// Some code goes here blah blah blah


unsigned int texObj;
glGenTextures (1, &texObj);
	
glBindTexture (GL_TEXTURE_2D, texObj);
glTexImage2D (
   GL_TEXTURE_2D, 
   0, 
   GL_INTENSITY, 
   BITMAP_COLS, 
   BITMAP_ROWS, 
   0, 
   GL_LUMINANCE, 
   GL_BITMAP, 
   BITMAP_DATA
);

// and so on

  
Unfortunately, this doesn''t work. The resulting "texture" is just a solid color and does not contain the bitmap''s pixels.
  
glBindTexture (GL_TEXTURE_2D, texObj);
glBegin (GL_QUADS);
glColor3f (1.0, 0.0, 0.0);
glTexCoord2f (0.0, 1.0); glVertex3f (  0.0f,   0.0f, 0.0f);
glTexCoord2f (1.0, 1.0); glVertex3f (300.0f,   0.0f, 0.0f);
glTexCoord2f (1.0, 0.0); glVertex3f (300.0f, 300.0f, 0.0f);
glTexCoord2f (0.0, 0.0); glVertex3f (  0.0f, 300.0f, 0.0f);
glEnd ();
  
The above code creates a solid red rectangle instead of showing the pixels of the bitmap. Am I on the right track or do I need to go another route completely? If I am on the right track, what am I doing wrong? Thanks for your help.

Hi!

kills this GL_LUMINANCE and put GL_BITMAP on its place.
Then put GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE on the place where GL_BITMAP was!

I believe the LUMINANCE is for 8 bits... (black & white)
So I guess that''s the problem indeed


No, I changed the GL_TexImage_2D line from

glTexImage2D (GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_INTENSITY, BITMAP_COLS, BITMAP_ROWS, 0, GL_LUMINANCE, GL_BITMAP, BITMAP_DATA);


to


glTexImage2D (GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_INTENSITY, BITMAP_COLS, BITMAP_ROWS, 0, GL_BITMAP, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, BITMAP_DATA);


but end up with the same, blank quad.

Here is a complete listing of the code. Perhaps the problem lies somewhere else (for example, maybe I''m forgetting to initialize something).

# include <windows.h>

const int BITMAP_PITCH = 1;
const int BITMAP_ROWS = 12;
const int BITMAP_COLS = 8;
const int NUM_PIXELS = BITMAP_PITCH * 8 * BITMAP_ROWS;

done = true;
}


}


SDL_Quit ();
glDeleteTextures (1, &texObj);


return 0;
}




It is a very simple program that uses SDL as the window manager. It starts, creates the texture, displays the texture, and waits for the user to exit the program. It should compile on Windows and Linux (although it has only been tested on Linux).

Here is a Makefile that will compile the above program (assuming you have SDL and OpenGL libs installed in the same place ):

  
CC=g++
LIBS= -lSDL -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lGL

opengl_test_program: main.o
$(CC) $(LIBS) main.o -o opengl_test_program


Thank you for your help.

Shouldn''t you bind your texture before you draw code?
Before the quad drawing you put //glBindTexture (GL_TEXTURE_2D, texObj);
Maybe uncommenting it would help?
Not a pro, just a thought :D

You''re using one byte per row in the image, which requires the unpack alignment to be set to 1. The default is 4, which means each new row must start on a 4 byte aligned offset from the start address. I don''t know if this is the problem you are currently experiencing, but with a one byte wide image, it will be a problem sooner or later. Put a glPixelStorei(GL_UNPACK_ALIGNMENT, 1) before uploading the texture.

Either that, or pad the image with enough bytes so that each new row starts on 4 byte aligned offset from the start address.

I''ve tried it both ways with similar results.

I''ll try that when I get home. To pad the image, should I change the data type to unsigned integer or add three more bytes per row in unsigned chars?

Add three bytes after the one you already have. If you use unsigned ints instead, you have to make sure the information ends up in the correct byte (little vs big endian issues), but it is possible.

One thing I don''t understand is according to the OpenGL red book, GL_BITMAP and GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE are type constants whereas GL_LUMINANCE is a format constant. That would suggest that I cannot replace GL_LUMINANCE with GL_BITMAP because they are different categories of constants. Where is my reasoning wrong?

I''m not sure what you mean by "before uploading the texture". I''m assuming that means before the glTexImage2D call. Either way, no such luck.

const int BITMAP_PITCH = 4;
const int BITMAP_ROWS = 12;
const int BITMAP_COLS = 8 * BITMAP_PITCH;
const int NUM_PIXELS = BITMAP_COLS * BITMAP_ROWS;


but that didn''t work, either. Thanks for the suggestions. Any other ideas?

OK, I did make a rather bone-headed mistake. The texture height is not a power of two (12) as OpenGL requires. I added some rows to make it 16 rows high. The pitch is one which is a power of two and the number of columns is 8 which is also a power of two. So now everything should be covered. Unfortunately, this doesn''t fix the problem.

      Hi, I'm a Multimedia Engineering student. I am about to finish my dergree and I'm already thinking about what topic to cover in my final college project.
      I'm interested in the procedural animation with c++ and OpenGL of creatures, something like a spider for example. Can someone tell me what are the issues I should investigate to carry it out? I understand that it has some dependence on artificial intelligence but I do not know to what extent. Can someone help me to find information about it? Thank you very much.

      So, i'm still on my quest to unterstanding the intricacies of HDR and implementing this into my engine. Currently i'm at the step to implementing tonemapping. I stumbled upon this blogposts:
      http://filmicworlds.com/blog/filmic-tonemapping-operators/
      http://frictionalgames.blogspot.com/2012/09/tech-feature-hdr-lightning.html
      and tried to implement some of those mentioned tonemapping methods into my postprocessing shader.
      The issue is that none of them creates the same results as shown in the blogpost which definitely has to do with the initial range in which the values are stored in the HDR buffer. For simplicity sake i store the values between 0 and 1 in the HDR buffer (ambient light is 0.3, directional light is 0.7)
      This is the tonemapping code:
      vec3 Uncharted2Tonemap(vec3 x) { float A = 0.15; float B = 0.50; float C = 0.10; float D = 0.20; float E = 0.02; float F = 0.30; return ((x*(A*x+C*B)+D*E)/(x*(A*x+B)+D*F))-E/F; } This is without the uncharted tonemapping:
      This is with the uncharted tonemapping:
      Which makes the image a lot darker.
      The shader code looks like this:
      void main() { vec3 color = texture2D(texture_diffuse, vTexcoord).rgb; color = Uncharted2Tonemap(color); //gamma correction (use only if not done in tonemapping code) color = gammaCorrection(color); outputF = vec4(color,1.0f); } Now, from my understanding is that tonemapping should bring the range down from HDR to 0-1.
      But the output of the tonemapping function heavily depends on the initial range of the values in the HDR buffer. (You can't expect to set the sun intensity the first time to 10 and the second time to 1000 and excpect the same result if you feed that into the tonemapper.) So i suppose that this also depends on the exposure which i have to implement?
      To check this i plotted the tonemapping curve:
      You can see that the curve goes only up to around to a value of 0.21 (while being fed a value of 1) and then basically flattens out. (which would explain why the image got darker.)
       
      My guestion is: In what range should the values in the HDR buffer be which then get tonemapped? Do i have to bring them down to a range of 0-1 by multiplying with the exposure?
      For example, if i increase the values of the light by 10 (directional light would be 7 and ambient light 3) then i would need to divide HDR values by 10 in order to get a value range of 0-1 which then could be fed into the tonemapping curve. Is that correct?

      i am reading this book : link
      in the OpenGL Rendering Pipeline section there is a picture like this: link
      but the question is this i dont really understand why it is necessary to turn pixel data in to fragment and then fragment into pixel could please give me a source or a clear Explanation that why it is necessary ? thank you so mu

      I'm using the OPENGL with eclipse+JOGL.
      My goal is to create movement of the camera and the player.
      I create main class, which create some box in 3D and hold 
      an object of PlayerAxis.
      I create PlayerAxis class which hold the axis of the player.
      If we want to move the camera, then in the main class I call to 
      the func "cameraMove"(from PlayerAxis) and it update the player axis.
      That's work good.
      The problem start if I move the camera on 2 axis, 
      for example if I move with the camera right(that's on the y axis)
      and then down(on the x axis) -
      in some point the move front is not to the front anymore..
      In order to move to the front, I do
      player.playerMoving(0, 0, 1);
      And I learn that in order to keep the front move, 
      I need to convert (0, 0, 1) to the player axis, and then add this.
      I think I dont do the convert right.. 
      I will be glad for help!

      Here is part of my PlayerAxis class:
       
      //player coordinate float x[] = new float[3]; float y[] = new float[3]; float z[] = new float[3]; public PlayerAxis(float move_step, float angle_move) { x[0] = 1; y[1] = 1; z[2] = -1; step = move_step; angle = angle_move; setTransMatrix(); } public void cameraMoving(float angle_step, String axis) { float[] new_x = x; float[] new_y = y; float[] new_z = z; float alfa = angle_step * angle; switch(axis) { case "x": new_z = addVectors(multScalar(z, COS(alfa)), multScalar(y, SIN(alfa))); new_y = subVectors(multScalar(y, COS(alfa)), multScalar(z, SIN(alfa))); break; case "y": new_x = addVectors(multScalar(x, COS(alfa)), multScalar(z, SIN(alfa))); new_z = subVectors(multScalar(z, COS(alfa)), multScalar(x, SIN(alfa))); break; case "z": new_x = addVectors(multScalar(x, COS(alfa)), multScalar(y, SIN(alfa))); new_y = subVectors(multScalar(y, COS(alfa)), multScalar(x, SIN(alfa))); } x = new_x; y = new_y; z = new_z; normalization(); } public void playerMoving(float x_move, float y_move, float z_move) { float[] move = new float[3]; move[0] = x_move; move[1] = y_move; move[2] = z_move; setTransMatrix(); float[] trans_move = transVector(move); position[0] = position[0] + step*trans_move[0]; position[1] = position[1] + step*trans_move[1]; position[2] = position[2] + step*trans_move[2]; } public void setTransMatrix() { for (int i = 0; i < 3; i++) { coordiTrans[0][i] = x[i]; coordiTrans[1][i] = y[i]; coordiTrans[2][i] = z[i]; } } public float[] transVector(float[] v) { return multiplyMatrixInVector(coordiTrans, v); }  
      and in the main class i have this:
       
      public void keyPressed(KeyEvent e) { if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_ESCAPE) { System.exit(0); //player move } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_W) { //front //moveAmount[2] += -0.1f; player.playerMoving(0, 0, 1); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_S) { //back //moveAmount[2] += 0.1f; player.playerMoving(0, 0, -1); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_A) { //left //moveAmount[0] += -0.1f; player.playerMoving(-1, 0, 0); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_D) { //right //moveAmount[0] += 0.1f; player.playerMoving(1, 0, 0); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_E) { //moveAmount[0] += 0.1f; player.playerMoving(0, 1, 0); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_Q) { //moveAmount[0] += 0.1f; player.playerMoving(0, -1, 0); //camera move } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_I) { //up player.cameraMoving(1, "x"); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_K) { //down player.cameraMoving(-1, "x"); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_L) { //right player.cameraMoving(-1, "y"); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_J) { //left player.cameraMoving(1, "y"); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_O) { //right round player.cameraMoving(-1, "z"); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_U) { //left round player.cameraMoving(1, "z"); } }

      So, i'm currently trying to implement an SSAO shader from THIS tutorial and i'm running into a few issues here.
      Now, this SSAO method requires view space positions and normals. I'm storing the normals in my deferred renderer in world-space so i had to do a conversion and reconstruct the position from the depth buffer.
      And something there goes horribly wrong (which has probably to do with worldspace to viewspace transformations).
      (here is the full shader source code if someone wants to take a look at it)
      Now, i suspect that the normals are the culprit.
      vec3 normal = ((uNormalViewMatrix*vec4(normalize(texture2D(sNormals, vTexcoord).rgb),1.0)).xyz); "sNormals" is a 2D texture which stores the normals in world space in a RGB FP16 buffer.
      Now i can't use the camera viewspace matrix to transform the normals into viewspace as the cameras position isn't set at (0,0,0), thus skewing the result.
      So what i did is to create a new viewmatrix specifically for this normal without the position at vec3(0,0,0);
      //"camera" is the camera which was used for rendering the normal buffer renderer.setUniform4m(ressources->shaderSSAO->getUniform("uNormalViewMatrix"), glmExt::createViewMatrix(glm::vec3(0,0,0),camera.getForward(),camera.getUp())//parameters are (position,forwardVector,upVector) ); Though i have the feeling this is the wrong approach. Is this right or is there a better/correct way of transforming a world space normal into viewspace?

      Hi,
      I'm trying mix two textures using own shader system, but I have a problem (I think) with uniforms.
      Code: https://github.com/HawkDeath/shader/tree/test
      To debug I use RenderDocs, but I did not receive good results. In the first attachment is my result, in the second attachment is what should be.
      PS. I base on this tutorial https://learnopengl.com/Getting-started/Textures.

      I'm having issues loading textures, as I'm clueless on how to handle / load images maybe I missing something, but the past few days I just google a lot to try to find a solution. Well theres two issues I think, one I'm using Kotlin Native (EAP) and OpenGL wrapper / STB image, so I'm not quite sure wheres the issue, if someone with more experience could give me some hints on how to solve this issue?
      The code is here, if I'm not mistaken the workflow is pretty straight forward, stbi_load returns the pixels of the image (as char array or byte array) and you need to pass those pixels directly to glTexImage2D, so a I'm missing something here it seems.

      I've noticed in most post processing tutorials several shaders are used one after another: one for bloom, another for contrast, and so on. For example: 
      postprocessing.quad.bind() // Effect 1 effect1.shader.bind(); postprocessing.texture.bind(); postprocessing.quad.draw(); postprocessing.texture.unbind(); effect1.shader.unbind(); // Effect 2 effect2.shader.bind(); // ...and so on postprocessing.quad.unbind() Is this good practice, how many shaders can I bind and unbind before I hit performance issues? I'm afraid I don't know what the good practices are in open/webGL regarding binding and unbinding resources. 
      I'm guessing binding many shaders at post processing is okay since the scene has already been updated and I'm just working on a quad and texture at that moment. Or is it more optimal to put shader code in chunks and bind less frequently? I'd love to use several shaders at post though. 
      Another example of what I'm doing at the moment:
      1) Loop through GameObjects, bind its phong shader (send color, shadow, spec, normal samplers), unbind all.
      2) At post: bind post processor quad, and loop/bind through different shader effects, and so on ...
      Thanks all!
