Hello, How can I see my texture map inside an cylinder, which I have textured with an .bmp? I want to rotate the cylinder and I see only black at the ends of the cylinder:((( here is the code (based on brian paul) from the cylinder: GLuint GLTexobj::makeObject( const QImage& tex1, const QImage& tex2 ) { GLUquadricObj* q = gluNewQuadric(); GLuint cylinderObj = glGenLists(1); glNewList( cylinderObj, GL_COMPILE ); glTranslatef( 0.0, 0.0, 0.0 ); // cylinder glTexImage2D( GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, 3, tex1.width(), tex1.height(), 0, GL_RGBA, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, tex1.bits() ); gluQuadricTexture( q, GL_TRUE ); gluCylinder(q, 0.6, 0.6, 2.0, 24, 1); // end cap //glTexImage2D( GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, 3, tex2.width(), tex2.height(), 0, // GL_RGBA, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, tex2.bits() ); //glTranslatef( 0.0, 0.0, 2.0 ); //gluDisk( q, 0.0, 0.6, 24, 1 ); // other end cap //glTranslatef( 0.0, 0.0, -2.0 ); //gluQuadricOrientation( q, (GLenum)GLU_INSIDE ); //gluDisk( q, 0.0, 0.6, 24, 1 ); glEndList(); gluDeleteQuadric( q ); return cylinderObj; }

i'm guessing it's your normals.
in order to see both sides in light, the object needs to be double sided.
with two sets of normals. i guess you could render the object once with front
face culling, then render it again with back face culling and flipped normals.
