OpenGL [solved] .obj loader weirdness

Recommended Posts

sprite_hound    461
I finally got around to doing some more work on my .obj file loader, and came across a problem I failed to solve last time. This screenshot illustrates it quite well: As you can see, it looks like some of the faces are being drawn transparent, or not drawn, and others are being drawn on top of ones they should be behind (or something). I have no idea what's causing this. Turning off lighting causes all the faces to be drawn as I'd expect (shadeless colour), so it might be something to do with that, but I don't know what. Here's the drawing code I'm using (creating display lists, these are then called when necessary):

// Goes through the vertices with that no. of verts, and draws them.
void cObjModel::createListFace(vector<cObject>::iterator j, vector<cMaterial>::iterator &m, 
		vector<int>::size_type &k, string &mName, unsigned int vertno, bool transp) {
	// While still in range, and we have that no. of verts.
	while (k != j->face.size() && j->face[k].vertex.size() == vertno) {
		// If we have the right material carry on and draw it.
		if (mName == j->face[k].material) {
			// Make sure this is the right list for it.
			if (transp && m->dissolve == 1.f || !transp && m->dissolve != 1.f) {
				++k;
				continue;
			}
			// Draw the face, with texture coords if it has a texture.
			for (vector<int>::size_type l = 0; l != vertno; ++l) {
				if (m->texture) {
					glTexCoord2f(texCoord[j->face[k].texCoord[l]].u(),
						texCoord[j->face[k].texCoord[l]].v());
				}
				glNormal3f(normal[j->face[k].normal[l]].x(),
					normal[j->face[k].normal[l]].y(),
					normal[j->face[k].normal[l]].z());
				glVertex3f(vertex[j->face[k].vertex[l]].x(),
					vertex[j->face[k].vertex[l]].y(),
					vertex[j->face[k].vertex[l]].z());
			}
			++k;
		// We need to find the right material.
		} else {
			mName = j->face[k].material;
			// Set m to point to the right material.
			for (m = material.begin(); m != material.end(); ++m) {
				if (m->name == mName) {
					break;
				}
			}
			// N.B. At the moment no colour blending with texture...
			// If we have a texture, set it.
			if (m->texture) {
				glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, m->texture);
			// Set the new material parameters.
			} else {
				//float Ka[] = {m->refAmbient.r(), m->refAmbient.g(), m->refAmbient.b(), m->dissolve};
				float Kd[] = {m->refDiffuse.r(), m->refDiffuse.g(), m->refDiffuse.b(), m->dissolve};
				float Ks[] = {m->refSpecular.r(), m->refSpecular.g(), m->refSpecular.b(), m->dissolve};
				glMaterialfv(GL_FRONT_AND_BACK, GL_AMBIENT, Kd);
				glMaterialfv(GL_FRONT_AND_BACK, GL_DIFFUSE, Kd);
				glMaterialfv(GL_FRONT_AND_BACK, GL_SPECULAR, Ks);
				glMaterialfv(GL_FRONT_AND_BACK, GL_SHININESS, &(m->specExp));
			}
		}
	}
}

// It would be easier here to just use multiple calls to glBegin(GL_POLYGON), but
// apparently that's pretty costly, and shouldn't be done, so we do the whole
// sorting thing instead. :-/
void cObjModel::createList() {
	// Sorts faces by number of vertices, then by material.
	for (vector<cObject>::iterator j = object.begin(); j != object.end(); ++j) {
		sort(j->face.begin(), j->face.end());
	}
	
	// Set up the list for opaque surfaces.
	opaqueListID = glGenLists(2);
	glNewList(opaqueListID, GL_COMPILE);
		for (vector<cObject>::iterator j = object.begin(); j != object.end(); ++j) {
			vector<int>::size_type k = 0;
			string mName = "";
			vector<cMaterial>::iterator m = material.begin();
			glBegin(GL_TRIANGLES);
				createListFace(j, m, k, mName, 3, 0);
			glEnd();
			glBegin(GL_QUADS);
				createListFace(j, m, k, mName, 4, 0);
			glEnd();
		}
	glEndList();
	
	// Set up the list for transparent surfaces
	transpListID = opaqueListID + 1;
	glNewList(transpListID, GL_COMPILE);
		glEnable(GL_BLEND);
		glDepthMask(GL_FALSE);
		for (vector<cObject>::iterator j = object.begin(); j != object.end(); ++j) {
			vector<int>::size_type k = 0;
			string mName = "";
			vector<cMaterial>::iterator m = material.begin();
			glBegin(GL_TRIANGLES);
				createListFace(j, m, k, mName, 3, 1);
			glEnd();
			glBegin(GL_QUADS);
				createListFace(j, m, k, mName, 4, 1);
			glEnd();
		}
		glDepthMask(GL_TRUE);
		glDisable(GL_BLEND);
	glEndList();
}




And here's the OpenGL set up I'm using, in case it's something there that's going wrong:
void cApp::reshape(int sx, int sy) {
	// Set the new width / height.
	glViewport(0, 0, sx, sy);
	
	glMatrixMode(GL_PROJECTION);
	glLoadIdentity();
	
	// Calculate the new aspect ratio (fov and clipping planes constant).
	gluPerspective(45.f, GLfloat(sx) / GLfloat(sy), 0.f, 100.f);
	
	glMatrixMode(GL_MODELVIEW);
	glLoadIdentity();
}

bool cApp::initOGL() {
	// Set up OGL viewport and perspective.
	reshape(S_WIDTH, S_HEIGHT);
	
	GLfloat L0Amb[] = { 0.2, 0.2, 0.2, 1 }; GLfloat L0Diff[] = { 1, 1, 1, 1 };
	GLfloat L0Spec[] = { 0.5, 0.5, 0.5, 1 }; GLfloat L0Pos[] = { 0, 5, 0, 1 };
	glLightfv(GL_LIGHT0, GL_AMBIENT, L0Amb); glLightfv(GL_LIGHT0, GL_DIFFUSE, L0Diff);
	glLightfv(GL_LIGHT0, GL_SPECULAR, L0Spec); glLightfv(GL_LIGHT0, GL_POSITION, L0Pos);
	
	glEnable(GL_LIGHT0);
	glEnable(GL_LIGHTING);
	glLightModelf(GL_LIGHT_MODEL_TWO_SIDE, GL_TRUE);
	
	glShadeModel(GL_SMOOTH);
	glColor4f(0.9,0.6,0.2,1);
	glClearColor(0,0,0,0.5);
	glClearDepth(1);
	
	glDepthFunc(GL_GEQUAL);
	glEnable(GL_DEPTH_TEST);
	
	glHint(GL_PERSPECTIVE_CORRECTION_HINT, GL_NICEST);
	
	glBlendFunc(GL_SRC_ALPHA, GL_ONE_MINUS_SRC_ALPHA);
	glEnable(GL_TEXTURE_2D);
	
	return true;
}




If anyone can see anything that could be causing this problem it would be greatly appreciated. thanks, sprite_hound. [Edited by - sprite_hound on May 19, 2007 10:47:45 AM]

glEnable(GL_DEPTH_TEST); ???

Okay, nevermind, I see you have that. Are the normals and winding order done properly? Is backface culling on? I don't see it in your code.

Hum. Yep, glEnable(GL_CULL_FACE); seems to solve everything. *looks embarrassed*
I really should have spotted that.

Thanks. :)

In the line:

gluPerspective(45.f, GLfloat(sx) / GLfloat(sy), 0.f, 100.f);

Make sure the near plane isn't set to 0.f or it'll cause strange things with depth testing (try 0.1f or something).

@timstump - thanks, I've changed that too. :)

And I've hit another problem. This time with textures. The model is basically the same as in the first screenshot (from a slightly different angle), and with a texture I've applied (the same drawing code as before). As you can see quads are rendered fine, but triangles just don't seem to show up (though they show up fine without the texture):



I really don't know what I'm doing wrong here, but it's probably something simple. I'm pretty sure the information is being sent to opengl ok, so I'm not sure what's happening.

[EDIT:] Nevermind. It appears you can't put calls to glBindTexture() inside a glBegin() glEnd() section. Meh - means I'll have to rewrite this I guess. Oh well.

      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++.
      Question:
      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.
