OpenGL glCopyTexImage2D strange result

Recommended Posts

Hi I am using glCopyTexImage2D to render current game screen to texture and then use it as still background for menu. Everything works fine except that texture is somehow not filled fully, some black parts are shown instead. Here is image to show it better: Image Hosted by imagehosting.us Here is the code i use to render it:

//save viewport and set up new one
int viewport[4];

//first let's draw the mainscene to the texture
//and then use that texture 


RenderToTextureStart();

//clear any rendering made
glClear( GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT | GL_DEPTH_BUFFER_BIT ); 
glMatrixMode( GL_MODELVIEW );

//draw the scene
mainScene.GameDraw();

//and render to texture
RenderToTextureEnd();

	//draws current scene to the texture and use it after
	void RenderToTextureStart()
	{	
		glGetIntegerv(GL_VIEWPORT,(int*)viewport);
		glViewport(0,0,512,512);
		
	}

	void RenderToTextureEnd()
	{

		
		//save data to texture using glCopyTexImage2D
            //backimage.texID - is the texture we save to
		glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D,backimage.TextId(0 ));
		
		glCopyTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_RGB,
			0,0, 512, 512, 0);
		
		//restore viewport
		glViewport( viewport[0],viewport[1],viewport[2],viewport[3]);
	}

	//draws background scene
	void DrawBack()
	{

		  glTranslatef(0.0f,0.0f,-1.0f); 

		      glColor3f(1.0f,1.0f,1.0f);          

			  glBindTexture( GL_TEXTURE_2D , backimage.TextId(0 ) );
			
		      glBegin(GL_QUADS);// Drawing Using Triangles
		
		
		
		
		          glTexCoord2f(0.0f, 0.0f);          // Top
		          glVertex3f(-0.77f,  -0.578f , 0);      		
		
		
	
	              glTexCoord2f(1.0f, 0.0f);
		          glVertex3f( 0.77f , -0.578f, 0);              // Bottom Left
		
		
		          glTexCoord2f(1.0f, 1.0f);
		          glVertex3f( 0.77f,   0.578f, 0);              // Bottom Right
		

		          glTexCoord2f(0.0f, 1.0f);
		          glVertex3f(-0.77f , 0.578f, 0);              // Bottom Right
		
		
		
		      glEnd();
		 
		    glTranslatef(0.0f,0.0f,1.0f); 
	}





Overall I am using SDL , OpenGL and DevIL One more thing is that this only occurs at 640x480 resolution. Higher resolutions work correctly ( 800x600 1024x768 ...) Here is what I get at 320x240. Strange :) Image Hosted by imagehosting.us I hope some one can help me out. [Edited by - DMINATOR on May 26, 2005 6:10:25 PM]

The buffer you render to is only as large as your window, so when you try to copy to a texture that is larger than this, only part of the texture will be filled.
(In other words, the top part of the texture is black because the window has height 480 and the texture is 512 pixels high.)

You have several options:
* Use a smaller texture
* Use only part of a texture (glCopyTexSubImage2D)
* Use pbuffers
* Render a small part of the texture every time and copy into the same texture (again glCopyTexSubImage2D.)
* and probably a bunch more...

I'd say the simplest would be to either use a texture that is small enough (512x256 for 640x480 window) or use only part of a larger texture (512x512 for 640x480, and render with texture coordinates 0 to 480/512 in y-direction.)

      I'm trying to get some legacy OpenGL code to run with a shader pipeline,
      The legacy code uses glVertexPointer(), glColorPointer(), glNormalPointer() and glTexCoordPointer() to supply the vertex information.
      I know that it should be using setVertexAttribPointer() etc to clearly define the layout but that is not an option right now since the legacy code can't be modified to that extent.
      I've got a version 330 vertex shader to somewhat work:
      #version 330 uniform mat4 osg_ModelViewProjectionMatrix; uniform mat4 osg_ModelViewMatrix; layout(location = 0) in vec4 Vertex; layout(location = 2) in vec4 Normal; // Velocity layout(location = 3) in vec3 TexCoord; // TODO: is this the right layout location? out VertexData { vec4 color; vec3 velocity; float size; } VertexOut; void main(void) { vec4 p0 = Vertex; vec4 p1 = Vertex + vec4(Normal.x, Normal.y, Normal.z, 0.0f); vec3 velocity = (osg_ModelViewProjectionMatrix * p1 - osg_ModelViewProjectionMatrix * p0).xyz; VertexOut.velocity = velocity; VertexOut.size = TexCoord.y; gl_Position = osg_ModelViewMatrix * Vertex; } What works is the Vertex and Normal information that the legacy C++ OpenGL code seem to provide in layout location 0 and 2. This is fine.
      What I'm not getting to work is the TexCoord information that is supplied by a glTexCoordPointer() call in C++.
      Question:
      What layout location is the old standard pipeline using for glTexCoordPointer()? Or is this undefined?
       
      Side note: I'm trying to get an OpenSceneGraph 3.4.0 particle system to use custom vertex, geometry and fragment shaders for rendering the particles.

      Hi i am new to this forum  i wanted to ask for help from all of you i want to generate real time terrain using a 32 bit heightmap i am good at c++ and have started learning Opengl as i am very interested in making landscapes in opengl i have looked around the internet for help about this topic but i am not getting the hang of the concepts and what they are doing can some here suggests me some good resources for making terrain engine please for example like tutorials,books etc so that i can understand the whole concept of terrain generation.

      Hey guys. I'm trying to get my application to work on my Nvidia GTX 970 desktop. It currently works on my Intel HD 3000 laptop, but on the desktop, every bind textures specifically from framebuffers, I get half a second of lag. This is done 4 times as I have three RGBA textures and one depth 32F buffer. I tried to use debugging software for the first time - RenderDoc only shows SwapBuffers() and no OGL calls, while Nvidia Nsight crashes upon execution, so neither are helpful. Without binding it runs regularly. This does not happen with non-framebuffer binds.
      GLFramebuffer::GLFramebuffer(FramebufferCreateInfo createInfo) { glGenFramebuffers(1, &fbo); glBindFramebuffer(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, fbo); textures = new GLuint[createInfo.numColorTargets]; glGenTextures(createInfo.numColorTargets, textures); GLenum *DrawBuffers = new GLenum[createInfo.numColorTargets]; for (uint32_t i = 0; i < createInfo.numColorTargets; i++) { glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, textures[i]); GLint internalFormat; GLenum format; TranslateFormats(createInfo.colorFormats[i], format, internalFormat); // returns GL_RGBA and GL_RGBA glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, internalFormat, createInfo.width, createInfo.height, 0, format, GL_FLOAT, 0); glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_NEAREST); glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_NEAREST); DrawBuffers[i] = GL_COLOR_ATTACHMENT0 + i; glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0); glFramebufferTexture(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, GL_COLOR_ATTACHMENT0 + i, textures[i], 0); } if (createInfo.depthFormat != FORMAT_DEPTH_NONE) { GLenum depthFormat; switch (createInfo.depthFormat) { case FORMAT_DEPTH_16: depthFormat = GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT16; break; case FORMAT_DEPTH_24: depthFormat = GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT24; break; case FORMAT_DEPTH_32: depthFormat = GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT32; break; case FORMAT_DEPTH_24_STENCIL_8: depthFormat = GL_DEPTH24_STENCIL8; break; case FORMAT_DEPTH_32_STENCIL_8: depthFormat = GL_DEPTH32F_STENCIL8; break; } glGenTextures(1, &depthrenderbuffer); glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, depthrenderbuffer); glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, depthFormat, createInfo.width, createInfo.height, 0, GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT, GL_FLOAT, 0); glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_NEAREST); glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_NEAREST); glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0); glFramebufferTexture(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, GL_DEPTH_ATTACHMENT, depthrenderbuffer, 0); } if (createInfo.numColorTargets > 0) glDrawBuffers(createInfo.numColorTargets, DrawBuffers); else glDrawBuffer(GL_NONE); if (glCheckFramebufferStatus(GL_FRAMEBUFFER) != GL_FRAMEBUFFER_COMPLETE) std::cout << "Framebuffer Incomplete\n"; glBindFramebuffer(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, 0); width = createInfo.width; height = createInfo.height; } // ... // FBO Creation FramebufferCreateInfo gbufferCI; gbufferCI.colorFormats = gbufferCFs.data(); gbufferCI.depthFormat = FORMAT_DEPTH_32; gbufferCI.numColorTargets = gbufferCFs.size(); gbufferCI.width = engine.settings.resolutionX; gbufferCI.height = engine.settings.resolutionY; gbufferCI.renderPass = nullptr; gbuffer = graphicsWrapper->CreateFramebuffer(gbufferCI); // Bind glBindFramebuffer(GL_DRAW_FRAMEBUFFER, fbo); // Draw here... // Bind to textures glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE0); glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, textures[0]); glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE1); glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, textures[1]); glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE2); glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, textures[2]); glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE3); glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, depthrenderbuffer); Here is an extract of my code. I can't think of anything else to include. I've really been butting my head into a wall trying to think of a reason but I can think of none and all my research yields nothing. Thanks in advance!

      Hi everyone, I've shared my 2D Game Engine source code. It's the result of 4 years working on it (and I still continue improving features ) and I want to share with the community. You can see some videos on youtube and some demo gifs on my twitter account.
      This Engine has been developed as End-of-Degree Project and it is coded in Javascript, WebGL and GLSL. The engine is written from scratch.
      This is not a professional engine but it's for learning purposes, so anyone can review the code an learn basis about graphics, physics or game engine architecture. Source code on this GitHub repository.
      I'm available for a good conversation about Game Engine / Graphics Programming

      I would like to introduce the first version of my physically based camera rendering library, written in C++, called PhysiCam.
      Physicam is an open source OpenGL C++ library, which provides physically based camera rendering and parameters. It is based on OpenGL and designed to be used as either static library or dynamic library and can be integrated in existing applications.
       
      The following features are implemented:
      Physically based sensor and focal length calculation Autoexposure Manual exposure Lense distortion Bloom (influenced by ISO, Shutter Speed, Sensor type etc.) Bokeh (influenced by Aperture, Sensor type and focal length) Tonemapping  
      You can find the repository at https://github.com/0x2A/physicam
       
      I would be happy about feedback, suggestions or contributions.
