OpenGL Wrong size of a cube

Recommended Posts

Hi! I'm new to OpenGL but it works :) I've build a small scene with a rotation cube in the middle. The cube moves away, turn 90° and return to its starting position. This move and the loading of the textures works great. My problem is, that the size of the cube itself is a little bit crazy. As you can see in the code, I build it with a width of 4 and a height of 3. This result in an cube with an aspect rotation of 4:3 (Top and bottom 3:3). The strange thing is that I get a cube with an aspect rotation of ~1.2 or ~1.44, regarding my openglwindow. (And not the estimated 1.33) I guess the problem is the glViewport. As far as I can guess (I tried around a little bit), the Viewport is reset by LoadIdentity. I also tried a glViewport after the LoadIdentity with differen parameters. Always (with a viewport after loadidentity) I get a black screen with no cube (heaven knows where it is). Only with glViewPort(0.0f,0.0f,...) after the LoadIdentity I get the cube. But it is scaled to fill the whole window. Maybe someone can give me a hind or something like this. Here's the code:
void TSlideshow3D::initializeGL() {
/*Build everything up*/
	rtZ = -11.50f;
	rtX = 0.0f;
	rtY = 0.0f;
	rtOffsetZ = -0.10f * config->use3DSpeed;   //use3DSpeed is atm always 1.0f
	rtOffsetX = 0.50f * config->use3DSpeed;
	rtOffsetY = 1.05f * config->use3DSpeed;

void TSlideshow3D::resizeGL( int w, int h ) {
	if (h==0)			// Prevent A Divide By Zero By
		h=1;		        // Making Height Equal One

	glViewport(0, 0, w, h);		// Reset The Current Viewport
	glMatrixMode(GL_PROJECTION);	// Select The Projection Matrix
	glLoadIdentity();		// Reset The Projection Matrix

	// Calculate The Aspect Ratio Of The Window
	gluPerspective(45.0f,(GLfloat)w/(GLfloat)h,0.1f,100.0f);   //doesn't affect anything

	glMatrixMode(GL_MODELVIEW);		// Select The Modelview Matrix
	glLoadIdentity();			// Reset The Modelview Matrix

//Der Foto-Klotz wird erstellt
void TSlideshow3D::buildCube() {
	float width =4.0f;
	float height=3.0f;
	glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, texture[ front ]);		// Select Our Texture
	// Front Face					x	y	z
		glTexCoord2f(0.0f, 0.0f); glVertex3f(-width, -height,  width);	// Bottom Left Of The Texture and Quad
		glTexCoord2f(1.0f, 0.0f); glVertex3f( width, -height,  width);	// Bottom Right Of The Texture and Quad
		glTexCoord2f(1.0f, 1.0f); glVertex3f( width,  height,  width);	// Top Right Of The Texture and Quad
		glTexCoord2f(0.0f, 1.0f); glVertex3f(-width,  height,  width);	// Top Left Of The Texture and Quad
/*and so on*/
	glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, texture[ left ]);				// Select Our Texture
	// Left Face
		glTexCoord2f(0.0f, 0.0f); glVertex3f(-width, -height, -width);	// Bottom Left Of The Texture and Quad
		glTexCoord2f(1.0f, 0.0f); glVertex3f(-width, -height,  width);	// Bottom Right Of The Texture and Quad
		glTexCoord2f(1.0f, 1.0f); glVertex3f(-width,  height,  width);	// Top Right Of The Texture and Quad
		glTexCoord2f(0.0f, 1.0f); glVertex3f(-width,  height, -width);	// Top Left Of The Texture and Quad


void TSlideshow3D::paintGL() {


  glLoadIdentity();                             // Reset The View

 	glTranslatef(0.0f ,0.0f, rtZ);               // Move Camera
 	glRotatef(rtX, 0.0f,1.0f,0.0f);               // Rotate
 	glRotatef(rtY, 1.0f,0.0f,0.0f);
/*Some controlling of the position of the cube.
Adjusting the rtOffsets depending on the position*/

	rtZ += rtOffsetZ;
	rtX += rtOffsetX;
	rtY += rtOffsetY;

I am not sure what you are after but the only thing I can think of is change your gluPerspective angle from 45 to 90.0 and see what happens...

      Hello. I'm Programmer who is in search of 2D game project who preferably uses OpenGL and C++. You can see my projects in GitHub. Project genre doesn't matter (except MMO's :D).

      Hello, My name is Matt. I am a programmer. I mostly use Java, but can use C++ and various other languages. I'm looking for someone to partner up with for random projects, preferably using OpenGL, though I'd be open to just about anything. If you're interested you can contact me on Skype or on here, thank you!

      Hello, my name is Mark. I'm hobby programmer. 
      So recently,I thought that it's good idea to find people to create a full 3D engine. I'm looking for people experienced in scripting 3D shaders and implementing physics into engine(game)(we are going to use the React physics engine). 
      And,ye,no money =D I'm just looking for hobbyists that will be proud of their work. If engine(or game) will have financial succes,well,then maybe =D
      Sorry for late replies.
      I mostly give more information when people PM me,but this post is REALLY short,even for me =D
      So here's few more points:
      Engine will use openGL and SDL for graphics. It will use React3D physics library for physics simulation. Engine(most probably,atleast for the first part) won't have graphical fron-end,it will be a framework . I think final engine should be enough to set up an FPS in a couple of minutes. A bit about my self:
      I've been programming for 7 years total. I learned very slowly it as "secondary interesting thing" for like 3 years, but then began to script more seriously.  My primary language is C++,which we are going to use for the engine. Yes,I did 3D graphics with physics simulation before. No, my portfolio isn't very impressive. I'm working on that No,I wasn't employed officially. If anybody need to know more PM me.

      I am developing my engine using the OpenGL 3.3 compatibility profile. It runs as expected on my NVIDIA card and on my Intel Card however when I tried it on an AMD setup it ran 3 times worse than on the other setups. Could this be a AMD driver thing or is this probably a problem with my OGL code? Could a different code standard create such bad performance?

      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++.
      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.
