I use glVertex2f and the displayed position not be what I expected as from upper-left corner of screen, but the center of screen and the value must between 0.0 to 1.0(to be inside a window)! My source code:

glOrtho/gluOrtho2D


To expand on this:

glOrtho( -0.5, width-0.5, -0.5, height-0.5, -1, 1); will put 0,0 at the bottom left.
glOrtho( -0.5, width-0.5, height-0.5, -0.5, -1, 1); will put 0,0 at the top left.

I have put it into my code, but it become nothing displayed.
Have I missed other stuff in my code?

Rick Appleton : this puts 0 0 in the middle. glOrtho is not a translation.

Opengl's 0,0 is bottom left.

So with glOrtho :

glOrtho( left, right, bottom, top, near, far )


this means you have left = 0, right = 1, bottom = 0, top = 1, near = -1, far = -1

(0,1)------(1,1)

(0,0)-------(1,0)

if you want to have your triangle at the upper left corner, you have to change your y-coord to match the height.

glVertex2f(0.0f, 1.0f);
glVertex2f(0.5f, 1.0f);
glVertex2f(0.5f, 0.5f);
glVertex2f(0.0f, 0.5f);

you can also increase the size .
left = 0, right = 1024, bottom = 0, top = 768, near = -1, far = 1

the means you are now working with a screen of size

(0,768)------(1024,768)

(0,0)-------(1024,0)

Generically,
left = 0, right = width, bottom= 0, top = height, near = -1, far = 1

To have at the upper left corner

glVertex2f(0.0f, height - 0.0f);
glVertex2f(0.5f, height - 0.0f);
glVertex2f(0.5f, height - 0.5f);
glVertex2f(0.0f, height - 0.5f);

Of course, if you pick a large width and height, make the sides of your square bigger than 0.5f or it might become too small.

Anyway use this function,

Method Draw2D()

drawMode = DrawMode_2D
glViewport 0, 0, vWidth,vHeight
glMatrixMode gl_projection
glLoadIdentity()
gluOrtho2D(0.0, vWidth, 0.0, vHeight )
glMatrixMode gl_modelview
glLoadIdentity
glDisable(gl_depth_test)
glDisable(gl_cull_face)
glDisable(GL_LIGHTING)

End Method

to enable 2d projection. now you can specify vertices in pixel space.

but it's from bottom to top instead of traditional top to bottom.

so you have to do this,

int y = 20
int useY = windowHeight-y

glVertex2f 20,useY

glVertex2f(0.0f, height - 0.5f);

Of course, if you pick a large width and height, make the sides of your square bigger than 0.5f or it might become too small.


Which is exactly what I said. If you enter 1.0 for width and height, then you get 0,0 in the center. If you enter width and height (1024,768) you'll get what he wants. The 0.5 subtracted is done to get the pixel centers correct. If you don't do that then a point plotted at 0,0, will be off-screen for three-quarters. And if you set y-min=height y-max=0, you can then draw things as if top left was 0,0, so there's no need to take that into account for each call as you do.

you can use opengl without glOrtho and any matrix process function if you just do very simple 2d stuff, I think it will much faster!

say, if your window size is 256x256, then size of one pixel will be:
x-axis: 1.0/(256.0/2.0);
y-axis: 1.0/(256.0/2.0);
(formula: 1.0/((height or width of your window)/2.0);

if you then position it at (3,5), the final value will be:(note its from bottom-left corner!)
x-value: 3*1.0/(256.0/2.0)-1.0;
y-value: 5*1.0/(256.0/2.0)-1.0;
(formula: (x or y pos)*(size of one pixel in x or y)-1.0;

you can alway precompute it. I think it will still be faster than matrix process even if you do it at run time.

GOOD LUCK!

You still haven't tell me what change shall be add to my code. I wanna do some 2D stuff and I have posted a thread about will I get more speed if I don't use depth and any matrix-relative OpenGL API but no one give me a idea.

Thanks! But it's just your *think*, it is really a pity... It will be meaningless if it is not faster, and I do not know whether it will cause something unexpected.

I want more info about minimally setting OpenGL without use depth and matrix and it's speed.

For 2D drawing, you only need to set the model-view and projection matrices once (well, whenever the size of the viewport changes), so there is no performance issue.

glMatrixMode(GL_PROJECTION);
gluOrtho2D(0, 0, width, height);
glMatrixMode(GL_MODELVIEW);
glLoadIdentity();

All vertices you send will be transformed by the model-view and projection matrices. You do want to minimize the number of changes you make to the matrices per frame, but in your case that's 0 and you can't get much faster than that.

      The Khronos™ Group, an open consortium of leading hardware and software companies, announces from the SIGGRAPH 2017 Conference the immediate public availability of the OpenGL® 4.6 specification. OpenGL 4.6 integrates the functionality of numerous ARB and EXT extensions created by Khronos members AMD, Intel, and NVIDIA into core, including the capability to ingest SPIR-V™ shaders.
      SPIR-V is a Khronos-defined standard intermediate language for parallel compute and graphics, which enables content creators to simplify their shader authoring and management pipelines while providing significant source shading language flexibility. OpenGL 4.6 adds support for ingesting SPIR-V shaders to the core specification, guaranteeing that SPIR-V shaders will be widely supported by OpenGL implementations.
      OpenGL 4.6 adds the functionality of these ARB extensions to OpenGL’s core specification:
      GL_ARB_gl_spirv and GL_ARB_spirv_extensions to standardize SPIR-V support for OpenGL GL_ARB_indirect_parameters and GL_ARB_shader_draw_parameters for reducing the CPU overhead associated with rendering batches of geometry GL_ARB_pipeline_statistics_query and GL_ARB_transform_feedback_overflow_querystandardize OpenGL support for features available in Direct3D GL_ARB_texture_filter_anisotropic (based on GL_EXT_texture_filter_anisotropic) brings previously IP encumbered functionality into OpenGL to improve the visual quality of textured scenes GL_ARB_polygon_offset_clamp (based on GL_EXT_polygon_offset_clamp) suppresses a common visual artifact known as a “light leak” associated with rendering shadows GL_ARB_shader_atomic_counter_ops and GL_ARB_shader_group_vote add shader intrinsics supported by all desktop vendors to improve functionality and performance GL_KHR_no_error reduces driver overhead by allowing the application to indicate that it expects error-free operation so errors need not be generated In addition to the above features being added to OpenGL 4.6, the following are being released as extensions:
      GL_KHR_parallel_shader_compile allows applications to launch multiple shader compile threads to improve shader compile throughput WGL_ARB_create_context_no_error and GXL_ARB_create_context_no_error allow no error contexts to be created with WGL or GLX that support the GL_KHR_no_error extension “I’m proud to announce OpenGL 4.6 as the most feature-rich version of OpenGL yet. We've brought together the most popular, widely-supported extensions into a new core specification to give OpenGL developers and end users an improved baseline feature set. This includes resolving previous intellectual property roadblocks to bringing anisotropic texture filtering and polygon offset clamping into the core specification to enable widespread implementation and usage,” said Piers Daniell, chair of the OpenGL Working Group at Khronos. “The OpenGL working group will continue to respond to market needs and work with GPU vendors to ensure OpenGL remains a viable and evolving graphics API for all its customers and users across many vital industries.“
      The OpenGL 4.6 specification can be found at https://khronos.org/registry/OpenGL/index_gl.php. The GLSL to SPIR-V compiler glslang has been updated with GLSL 4.60 support, and can be found at https://github.com/KhronosGroup/glslang.
      Sophisticated graphics applications will also benefit from a set of newly released extensions for both OpenGL and OpenGL ES to enable interoperability with Vulkan and Direct3D. These extensions are named:
      GL_EXT_memory_object GL_EXT_memory_object_fd GL_EXT_memory_object_win32 GL_EXT_semaphore GL_EXT_semaphore_fd GL_EXT_semaphore_win32 GL_EXT_win32_keyed_mutex They can be found at: https://khronos.org/registry/OpenGL/index_gl.php
      Industry Support for OpenGL 4.6
      “With OpenGL 4.6 our customers have an improved set of core features available on our full range of OpenGL 4.x capable GPUs. These features provide improved rendering quality, performance and functionality. As the graphics industry’s most popular API, we fully support OpenGL and will continue to work closely with the Khronos Group on the development of new OpenGL specifications and extensions for our customers. NVIDIA has released beta OpenGL 4.6 drivers today at https://developer.nvidia.com/opengl-driver so developers can use these new features right away,” said Bob Pette, vice president, Professional Graphics at NVIDIA.
      "OpenGL 4.6 will be the first OpenGL release where conformant open source implementations based on the Mesa project will be deliverable in a reasonable timeframe after release. The open sourcing of the OpenGL conformance test suite and ongoing work between Khronos and X.org will also allow for non-vendor led open source implementations to achieve conformance in the near future," said David Airlie, senior principal engineer at Red Hat, and developer on Mesa/X.org projects.

      Hi,
      I have an OpenGL application but without possibility to wite own shaders.
      I need to perform small VS modification - is possible to do it in an alternative way? Do we have apps or driver modifictions which will catch the shader sent to GPU and override it?

      Does sync be needed to read texture content after access texture image in compute shader?
      My simple code is as below,
      glUseProgram(program.get());
      glBindImageTexture(0, texture[0], 0, GL_FALSE, 3, GL_READ_ONLY, GL_R32UI);
      glBindImageTexture(1, texture[1], 0, GL_FALSE, 4, GL_WRITE_ONLY, GL_R32UI);
      glDispatchCompute(1, 1, 1);
      // Does sync be needed here?
      glUseProgram(0);
      glBindFramebuffer(GL_READ_FRAMEBUFFER, framebuffer);
      glFramebufferTexture2D(GL_READ_FRAMEBUFFER, GL_COLOR_ATTACHMENT0,
                                     GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_POSITIVE_X + face, texture[1], 0);
      glReadPixels(0, 0, kWidth, kHeight, GL_RED_INTEGER, GL_UNSIGNED_INT, outputValues);
       
      Compute shader is very simple, imageLoad content from texture[0], and imageStore content to texture[1]. Does need to sync after dispatchCompute?

      My question: is it possible to transform multiple angular velocities so that they can be reinserted as one? My research is below:
      // This works quat quaternion1 = GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector1); quat quaternion2 = GEMultiplyQuaternions(quaternion1, GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector2)); quat quaternion3 = GEMultiplyQuaternions(quaternion2, GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector3)); glMultMatrixf(GEMat4FromQuaternion(quaternion3).array); // The first two work fine but not the third. Why? quat quaternion1 = GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector1); vec3 vector1 = GETransformQuaternionAndVector(quaternion1, angularVelocity1); quat quaternion2 = GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector2); vec3 vector2 = GETransformQuaternionAndVector(quaternion2, angularVelocity2); // This doesn't work //quat quaternion3 = GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector3); //vec3 vector3 = GETransformQuaternionAndVector(quaternion3, angularVelocity3); vec3 angleVelocity = GEAddVectors(vector1, vector2); // Does not work: vec3 angleVelocity = GEAddVectors(vector1, GEAddVectors(vector2, vector3)); static vec3 angleRadiansVector; vec3 angularAcceleration = GESetVector(0.0, 0.0, 0.0); // Sending it through one angular velocity later in my motion engine angleVelocity = GEAddVectors(angleVelocity, GEMultiplyVectorAndScalar(angularAcceleration, timeStep)); angleRadiansVector = GEAddVectors(angleRadiansVector, GEMultiplyVectorAndScalar(angleVelocity, timeStep)); glMultMatrixf(GEMat4FromEulerAngle(angleRadiansVector).array); Also how do I combine multiple angularAcceleration variables? Is there an easier way to transform the angular values?
