OpenGL SDL_Surface to OGL texture

Recommended Posts

Taymo    122
Ok so I am using SDL for my OGL implementation cause it's way easyer. I'm using SDL_image to load a JPG into a SDL_Surface and them load that into a OGL texture object. Once I got it down and it didn't work I did some research and it seems that my implementation should work. The img loading routine is LoadTextures althought I don't think that it is the problem. Heres the WHOLE program. It's not that long. See anything wrong?

Yes 256x256 and it is in the right place. I know it's being loaded becuase I null cheak it and if it wasn't SDL would deploy it's parachute for me trying to access mobo->pixels when theres nothing there. That was happening before.

You have (mistakenly, I think) set the lod parameter of glTexImage2D to 3. Set that as 0, unless you are planning to supply a complete set of mipmaps.

Yeah, I just tested it out on my framework - setting an incorrect mipmap value will cause it to fail completely. I had assumed that it would just make the texture weird.

You might want to look into gluBuild2DMipMaps. gluBuild2DMipMaps will also convert non-power-of-2 textures to the correct dimensions.

An additional (possible) problem is the pixel format of the surface. I'm not sure how IMG_Load creates an image, but you may want to convert it to a specific format to guarentee you're using RGB. I've had weird stuff happen before, like SDL_LoadBMP returning a BGR texture, or it having an alpha value or something.

True words by Mushu.

You are also explicitly providing GL_RGB for the dataformat. You should check the number of bits perpixel in the SDL_Surface before providing it like that. I believe the SDL_Surface struct has a member value that contains this information. If 32 -> GL_RGBA, if 24 -> GL_RGB etc. It isn't a problem with jpg images though, always 24 bit AFAIK.

You may want to use gluBuild2DMipmaps as Mushu suggested, but if you don't make sure you don't set mipmap filtering with glTexParameter, use linear filtering instead.

Here's what I use:

	if(image->format->BitsPerPixel==32)
{
glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_RGBA, image->w, image->h,
0, GL_RGBA, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, image->pixels);
}
else
{
glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_RGBA, image->w, image->h,
0, GL_BGR, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, image->pixels);
}


In this, image is an SDL_surface loaded with IMG_Load(). I haven't tested this with every file format, but it works fine for me when I use bitmaps, tgas, and pngs. Its basically doing what Deavik said.

And if you want to display your source code(especially when its as long as that!), try using the [ source ] and [ /source ] tags around your code(without the spaces). It will format your code nicely.

You can convert any surface to a specific format (and set a colorkey) using the following method (there are others) -
  1. Load the surface.
  2. Create a new RGB surface with the desired format.
  3. Fill the new surface with pure alpha.
  4. Set the desired colorkey on the loaded surface.
  5. Blit the loaded surface onto the new surface.
  6. Convert the new surface to an OpenGL texture.
  7. Free both surfaces.

Code dump -
SDL_Surface* surf = SDL_LoadBMP( filename.c_str() );

if ( !surf ) {
OGLGfxAdapter::TextureType ret;
ret.tex = 0;
ret.w = 0;
ret.h = 0;

return ret;
}

SDL_Surface* dest = SDL_CreateRGBSurface( SDL_HWSURFACE, surf->w, surf->h,
32,
#if SDL_BYTEORDER == SDL_LIL_ENDIAN // OpenGL RGBA masks
0x000000FF,
0x0000FF00,
0x00FF0000,
0xFF000000
#else
0xFF000000,
0x00FF0000,
0x0000FF00,
0x000000FF
#endif
);


SDL_FillRect( dest, NULL, SDL_MapRGBA( dest->format, 0, 0, 0, SDL_ALPHA_TRANSPARENT ) );

SDL_SetColorKey( surf, SDL_SRCCOLORKEY, SDL_MapRGB( surf->format, (Uint8)colorkey.r, (Uint8)colorkey.g, (Uint8)colorkey.b ) );
SDL_BlitSurface( surf, NULL, dest, NULL );

The key is that SDL will internally "do the right stuff" with the surface formats when blitting. You can also use SDL_ConvertSurface to create a new surface with a specific pixel format, but I like to apply a colorkey too [grin]

Washu- You don't have to go through all that mess

From the SDL docs

SDL_Surface *SDL_DisplayFormatAlpha(SDL_Surface *surface);
Description
This function takes a surface and copies it to a new surface of the pixel format and colors of the video framebuffer plus an alpha channel, suitable for fast blitting onto the display surface. It calls SDL_ConvertSurface.

If you want to take advantage of hardware colorkey or alpha blit acceleration, you should set the colorkey and alpha value before calling this function.

This function can be used to convert a colorkey to an alpha channel, if the SDL_SRCCOLORKEY flag is set on the surface. The generated surface will then be transparent (alpha=0) where the pixels match the colorkey, and opaque (alpha=255) elsewhere.


Or the non Alpha version
SDL_Surface *SDL_DisplayFormat(SDL_Surface *surface);
Description
This function takes a surface and copies it to a new surface of the pixel format and colors of the video framebuffer, suitable for fast blitting onto the display surface. It calls SDL_ConvertSurface.

If you want to take advantage of hardware colorkey or alpha blit acceleration, you should set the colorkey and alpha value before calling this function.




P.S. How do you put code on this forum?

Thanks alot guy for all te information. I switched the MIN MAG filters in Texparam to GL_LINEAR and the LOD param to 0 and it works fine untill I loaded a non-power-of-two surface. But THEN I used glu_BuildMipmap() and it works fine now. Thanks again.

      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!
