This seems silly. I am trying to map a texture to a cone. Simple enough, right? Well, perhaps not. I am getting an odd distortion that I can not seem to correct. As the texture maps around the cone, I would expect pixels at the "tip" to be extremely compressed and pixels at the outer edge of the circle (if you're looking straight down on it) would be more spread out. This is, in fact, what happens. The "problem" seems to come as the left side of the texture (stretching from the tip down to the outer edge) butts up against the right side of the texture as it is mapped around. There is inconsistancy for sure. If I use a checker-board pattern, it is quite obvious that part of the texture is being obscured as the left and right edges meet. How am I doing my mapping? Glad you asked... // Begin pseudo code... GLUquadraticObj* obj = gluNewQuadradic(); // enable and bind texture with glEnable, glBind, glTexImage2D, etc. glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_S, GL_CLAMP); glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_T, GL_CLAMP); glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTUER_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_NEAREST); glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTUER_MIN_FILTER, GL_NEAREST); glTexEnvf(GL_TEXTURE_ENV, GL_TEXTURE_ENV_MODE, GL_MODULATE); GLint prevMode = 0; glGetIntegerv(GL_MATRIX_MODE, &prevMode); glMatrixMode(GL_TEXTURE); glPushMatrix(); gluQuadricTexture(obj, GL_TRUE); gluQuadricTexture(obj, GLU_FILL); gluQuadricTexture(obj, GLU_SMOOTH); gluCylinder(obj, scale, 0.001f, 1.0f, 64, 1); glPopMatrix(); glMatrixMode(prevMode); // End pseudo Code Any help getting the texture to behave better would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! [Edited by - DIB on September 19, 2006 5:06:31 PM]
