OpenGL Why is my texture tinted blue?

Recommended Posts

Okay, I'm working with SDL and OpenGL on Win32 using Dev-C++. I'm trying to alter lesson 31 of the NeHe tutorials because it is designed to only load BMP textures, I want to use SDL_Image so I can load textures of various file types. But when I change the code to use SDL_LoadBMP() or IMG_LOAD() the texture will load, and it looks normal except that its blue. Below is the code, any ideas what I might be doing wrong? The original code...
	AUX_RGBImageRec *pImage;
	pImage = LoadBMP( filename );									// Loads The Bitmap Specified By filename

	// Load The Bitmap, Check For Errors, If Bitmap's Not Found Quit
	if ( pImage != NULL && pImage->data != NULL )					// If Texture Image Exists
		glGenTextures(1, &texture);									// Create The Texture

		// Typical Texture Generation Using Data From The Bitmap
		glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, texture);
		glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, 3, pImage->sizeX, pImage->sizeY, 0, GL_RGB, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, pImage->data);


		free(pImage->data);											// Free The Texture Image Memory
		free(pImage);												// Free The Image Structure
	return texture;	

New broken code...
	SDL_Surface *img;
	img = SDL_LoadBMP(filename);

	glGenTextures(1, &texture);									// Create The Texture

	glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, texture);
	glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, 3, img->w, img->h, 0, GL_RGB, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, img->pixels);

	return texture;

I don't use SDL to load my textures but what order does SDL load the color in? RGB or BGR? Not sure if that is the problem but it's a start.

Yeah, my money's on an RGB <-> BGR switch as well.

EDIT: Heh, beaten to the punch...I reckon it's an RGB <-> BGR problem too. Bitmap files are stored in BGR order. Try exchanging GL_RGB for GL_BGR in glTexImage2D, see if that makes any difference.

      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.

      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,
      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.
