OpenGL GL_TEXTURE_3D

Recommended Posts

When I do glEnable(GL_TEXTURE_3D); Dev-C++ says 52 C:\Dev-Cpp\main.cpp `GL_TEXTURE_3D' undeclared (first use this function) Does anyone know how to get this to work? Do I have to get a whole new version of OpenGL or something? Mike http://www.coolgroups.com/forum

I'm guessing you're on Windows?

GL_TEXTURE_3D is part of OpenGL 1.2, and unfortunately Windows only has support for OpenGL 1.1. The way you get around this is using extensions- there are libraries such as GLee that make this much easier.

Hmmm... So Unix would support this without any fuss?

What version of OpenGL does Unix support?

I just got this going recently, here's what you need. Google for the glext.h header. I found two, one is less than 20k and the other is over 300k. 3d textures are not defined in the smaller file. Include it in the project and then add this in your globals:

PFNGLTEXIMAGE3DPROC glTexImage3D;

and then paste this in main before your GL loop starts:

glTexImage3D = (PFNGLTEXIMAGE3DPROC) wglGetProcAddress("glTexImage3D");


Or maybe just write it like this in your header:

PFNGLTEXIMAGE3DPROC glTexImage3D = (PFNGLTEXIMAGE3DPROC) wglGetProcAddress("glTexImage3D");

Here's my code:

PFNGLTEXIMAGE3DPROC glTexImage3D = (PFNGLTEXIMAGE3DPROC) wglGetProcAddress("glTexImage3D");
unsigned char *texturemem = new unsigned char[24];
GLuint textureID;
glGenTextures(1, &textureID);
glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_3D, textureID);
glTexImage3D(GL_TEXTURE_3D, 0, GL_RGB, 2, 2, 2, 0, GL_RGB, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, texturemem);

However, it crashes when it gets to glTexImage3D. Any ideas why?

I highly recommend using GLee. It makes using any OGL features beyond 1.1 a breeze. You could also look at the GLee source if you get curious as to how it's done.

I tried glee and linked in glee.lib, but now I'm getting compilation errors:



.drectve `/DEFAULTLIB:"LIBC" /DEFAULTLIB:"OLDNAMES" ' unrecognized
[Linker error] undefined reference to `_imp__wglGetProcAddress@4'
[Linker error] undefined reference to `_imp__wglGetProcAddress@4'

[Linker error] undefined reference to `_imp__glGetString@4'
[Linker error] undefined reference to `_imp__glGetString@4'

any ideas?

Ok, apparently I didn't have the Windows version.

Anyway, now I do, and it still doesn't work.

Here's what the guy says in the readme file:

---------------------------------------------------------------

1) Put the GLee.lib in the lib folder (ie C:\dmd\lib)
2) Put glee.d and glConstants.d in the include folder (ie create c:\glee and use the -IC:\glee on the compiler.)
3) The D code is pretty much the same as the C code but you need to specify:

import glee; //Instead of #include "glee.h"

---------------------------------------------------------------

Anyway, when I do "import glee" Dev-C++ gets mad and says:

5 C:\Dev-Cpp\main.cpp `import' does not name a type

Anyone know what the deal is?

You are using C++, not D which is why it didnt work [smile]
Just include the .c and .h file in your project, so that it compiles the .c file, I find it much easier to work with it like that than to use the lib.

Well, it compiles now using glee. I tried this:

glEnable(GL_TEXTURE_3D);
unsigned char *texturemem = new unsigned char[24];
GLuint textureID;
glGenTextures(1, &textureID);
glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_3D, textureID);
glTexImage3D(GL_TEXTURE_3D, 0, GL_RGB, 2, 2, 2, 0, GL_RGB, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, texturemem);

Still, it crashes. I'm guessing the graphics card doesn't support 3d textures?

That's strange because I'm at a library, and the computers here are top-notch.


I tried this before to check support:

int sup = isExtensionSupported("GL_EXT_texture3D");


int isExtensionSupported(const char *extension)
{
const GLubyte *extensions = NULL;
const GLubyte *start;
GLubyte *where, *terminator;

/* Extension names should not have spaces. */
where = (GLubyte *) strchr(extension, ' ');
if (where || *extension == '\0')
return 0;
extensions = glGetString(GL_EXTENSIONS);
/* It takes a bit of care to be fool-proof about parsing the
OpenGL extensions string. Don't be fooled by sub-strings,
etc. */
start = extensions;
for (;;) {
where = (GLubyte *) strstr((const char *) start, extension);
if (!where)
break;
terminator = where + strlen(extension);
if (where == start || *(where - 1) == ' ')
if (*terminator == ' ' || *terminator == '\0')
return 1;
start = terminator;
}
return 0;
}

Is that the proper way to check for support for 3d textures?

if you are using GLee just do;


if(!GLEE_EXT_texture3D)
{
std::cout << "no 3d texture support found" << std::endl;
}


might want to check that GLEE_EXT_texture3D line, might need to be all caps if it doest work.

      I assumed that if a shader is computationally expensive then the execution is just slower. But running the following GLSL FS instead just crashes
      void main() { float x = 0; float y = 0; int sum = 0; for (float x = 0; x < 10; x += 0.00005) { for (float y = 0; y < 10; y += 0.00005) { sum++; } } fragColor = vec4(1, 1, 1 , 1.0); } with unhandled exception in nvoglv32.dll. Are there any hard limits on the number of steps/time that a shader can take before it is shut down? I was thinking about implementing some time intensive computation in shaders where it would take on the order of seconds to compute a frame, is that possible? Thanks.

      There are studios selling applications which is just copying any 3Dgraphic content and regenerating into another new window. especially for CAVE Virtual reality experience. so that the user opens REvite or CAD or any other 3D applications and opens a model. then when the user selects the rendered window the VR application copies the 3D model information from the OpenGL window. 
      I got the clue that the VR application replaces the windows opengl32.dll file. how this is possible ... how can we copy the 3d content from the current OpenGL window.
      anyone, please help me .. how to go further... to create an application like VR CAVE. 
       
      Thanks

      hi all,

      i am trying to build an OpenGL 2D GUI system, (yeah yeah, i know i should not be re inventing the wheel, but this is for educational and some other purpose only),
      i have built GUI system before using 2D systems such as that of HTML/JS canvas, but in 2D system, i can directly match a mouse coordinates to the actual graphic coordinates with additional computation for screen size/ratio/scale ofcourse.
      now i want to port it to OpenGL, i know that to render a 2D object in OpenGL we specify coordiantes in Clip space or use the orthographic projection, now heres what i need help about.
      1. what is the right way of rendering the GUI? is it thru drawing in clip space or switching to ortho projection?
      2. from screen coordinates (top left is 0,0 nd bottom right is width height), how can i map the mouse coordinates to OpenGL 2D so that mouse events such as button click works? In consideration ofcourse to the current screen/size dimension.
      3. when let say if the screen size/dimension is different, how to handle this? in my previous javascript 2D engine using canvas, i just have my working coordinates and then just perform the bitblk or copying my working canvas to screen canvas and scale the mouse coordinates from there, in OpenGL how to work on a multiple screen sizes (more like an OpenGL ES question).
      lastly, if you guys know any books, resources, links or tutorials that handle or discuss this, i found one with marekknows opengl game engine website but its not free,
      Just let me know. Did not have any luck finding resource in google for writing our own OpenGL GUI framework.
      IF there are no any available online, just let me know, what things do i need to look into for OpenGL and i will study them one by one to make it work.
      thank you, and looking forward to positive replies.

      I have a few beginner questions about tesselation that I really have no clue.
      The opengl wiki doesn't seem to talk anything about the details.
       
      What is the relationship between TCS layout out and TES layout in?
      How does the tesselator know how control points are organized?
          e.g. If TES input requests triangles, but TCS can output N vertices.
             What happens in this case?
      In this article,
      http://www.informit.com/articles/article.aspx?p=2120983
      the isoline example TCS out=4, but TES in=isoline.
      And gl_TessCoord is only a single one.
      So which ones are the control points?
      How are tesselator building primitives?

      I've been developing a 2D Engine using SFML + ImGui.
      Here you can see an image
      The editor is rendered using ImGui and the scene window is a sf::RenderTexture where I draw the GameObjects and then is converted to ImGui::Image to render it in the editor.
      Now I need to create a 3D Engine during this year in my Bachelor Degree but using SDL2 + ImGui and I want to recreate what I did with the 2D Engine. 
      I've managed to render the editor like I did in the 2D Engine using this example that comes with ImGui. 
      3D Editor preview
      But I don't know how to create an equivalent of sf::RenderTexture in SDL2, so I can draw the 3D scene there and convert it to ImGui::Image to show it in the editor.
      If you can provide code will be better. And if you want me to provide any specific code tell me.
      Thanks!
