OpenGL Shadow map issue

Recommended Posts

pasman    441
Hi, i'm working on shadow mapping now using OpenGL and CG and I hava a little problem, i guess it's the so called "negative projection". The thing is i don't know how to fix that in the fragment shader. There are some methods that suggest cliping everything behind the light but i'm doing only 1 rendering pass. The fragment program:
void main(float4 texProj : TEXCOORD7,
		  float2 texDiffuse: TEXCOORD0,
		  uniform sampler2D diffuseMap:TEXUNIT0,
		  uniform sampler2D projMap:TEXUNIT3,
		  out float4 color : COLOR
		  ) 
{

	float4 projcolor = tex2Dproj(projMap, texProj);
	float4 diffusecolor = tex2D(diffuseMap,texDiffuse);
	color=pow(attcolor,5)*diffusecolor;
	float4 col=pow(projcolor,5);

	color=col*diffusecolor;
}

There are some screenshots here: shadow Anyone has any suggestions? Thank you.

Hi,

I don't know if you've tried this, but user clipping planes shold do the trick (I did this when I was playing with projectors...they are dead easy to setup). Only problem is that it's a fairly recent feature and not all video cards support this.

Oh yeah, I seem to remember some trick that utilizes the near/far clipping planes to work as an arbitrary clipping plane. I've never tried this, and I don't have a link handy but it might be worth looking into.

thanks, clipping planes might work if i'd render in 2 passes, one for the geometry that receives shadows and one for the others. But how can i achieve this in only 1 pass?

You just need to test in the shader if the point you are shadowing is behind the light or not. One way is to kill all those points ( with a clip plane ).

Another way is a 2x1 texture with a white and a black texel, mapped to the light's Z axis. You can use this to combine with your shadowing or lighting term to make or or the other cancel out.

Can you explain please how to map it to the lights Z axis?Thanks

Well, once you put the vertex through the lightviewprojection matrix, the w component of the vertex will contain the view space Z value from the light's point of view.

In opengl, that's along the -Z axis, so you want to use this to create your texture coordinate.

Now, since the left texel has black, and right one has white, we'll need to reverse the coordiante, or reverse the texture, and we want to light to map to the middle of the 2x1 texture
shadow_mask = tex2d( -vertex.w + 0.5f, 0.0f )


Then it returns white if it's in front of the light, or black if behind.

Or, you could do this with code, like

if ( -vertex.w > 0.0f )
{
// may cast or receive a shadow
}
else
{
// can't cast or receive a shadow
}

thank you for the reply, i tried both methods but still doesn't work, i am wondering is the projection matrix constructed correctly? It does project the shadow as it should but i also get a black region beside the reverse projection.
Here is the code for matrix generation


CMatrix4 projMatrix;
projMatrix.LoadIdentity();
projMatrix.Scale(CVector3(0.5f*float(800.0/1024.0), 0.5f*float(600.0/1024.0), 1.0f));
projMatrix.Translate(CVector3(1.0f,1.0f,0.0f));
projMatrix.postMultiply(CMatrix4(lightProjectionMatrix));
projMatrix.postMultiply(CMatrix4(lightViewMatrix));
projMatrix.ExportMatrix(mt);





And the shaders


void main(float4 texProj : TEXCOORD7,
float4 vertex : TEXCOORD5,
float2 texDiffuse: TEXCOORD0,
uniform sampler2D diffuseMap:TEXUNIT0,
uniform sampler2D attenuationMap:TEXUNIT2,
uniform sampler2D projMap:TEXUNIT3,
out float4 color : COLOR
)
{

float4 projcolor = tex2Dproj(projMap, texProj);
float4 shadow_mask= tex2D(attenuationMap, float2(-vertex.w+0.5f,0.0f));
float4 diffusecolor = tex2D(diffuseMap,texDiffuse);
float4 col=pow(projcolor,5);

color=shadow_mask*col*diffusecolor;//shadow_mask*diffusecolor;
}





void main( float4 inPos : POSITION,
float2 inTex0 : TEXCOORD0,
uniform float4x4 Mvp: state.matrix.mvp,
uniform float4x4 ShadowTexMat,
uniform float4x4 lightViewProj,
out float4 outPos : POSITION,
out float2 outTex : TEXCOORD0,
out float4 outTexProj : TEXCOORD7,
out float4 oVertex: TEXCOORD5
)
{
// compute vertex position
outPos=mul(Mvp,inPos);
float4 vertex=mul(lightViewProj,inPos);

// compute projected texture coordinates
outTexProj=mul(ShadowTexMat,inPos);
outTex=inTex0;
oVertex=vertex;
}




The difference between ShadowTexMat and lightViewProj is that in the later i don't scale and translate...but i tried making them the same and still don't get correct results.
I also tried the other method you suggested but makes no difference. The shadow_mask value is about 0.5 when mapping with vertex.w or i get some stripes if mapped with x,y or z like this.
I can't figure what's wrong :(...thanks

sorry to bump this again but after multiple attempts i haven't manage to make it work correctly. I tried the 2 methods presented here, also tried using an attenuation map that i project...but the projection suffers the same problem.

I apologize again but anyone has any ideea? I'm trying to accomplish this in only 1 pass. Thank you

Hi..

I have GLSL code and a VERY short tutorial on my site.. hopefully it might help.
Ask if you wonder anything (and I will dust of that code once more ;])

Good luck!

      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.
