Hi, I am new to this forum and GLSL. Learning GLSL from the www.lighthouse3d.com tutorials. I have problem in setting upo GLSL, i am using visual studio 2005, What i did was 1. Created a win32 console project template with application setting empty. Project name : myGLSL 2. Installed "glew.dll" and glut.dll in windows/system32 folder. 3. Made two folders "include" and "library" folders in Project folder "myGLSL". 4. copied glew.h,glut.h,wglew.h in "include" folder. 5. copied glew32.lib and glew32s.lib and glut32.lib in "library" folder. 6. Defined the path of the additional include and library folder to access the headers and libs. 7. Fisrt i experiment with glut code i.e. just drawing a triangle. And it is working. 8. Then i tried including some basic implementation code with glew. #include <windows.h> #include <stdio.h> #include <stdlib.h> #include <math.h> #include <glew.h> #include <glut.h> static void camSet(void); static void redraw(void); //declarations static void setShaders(void); void main(int argc, char **argv); static void redraw(void) //all drawing code goes here { glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT | GL_DEPTH_BUFFER_BIT); //clears the colour and depth buffers glPushMatrix(); //saves the current matrix on the top of the matrix stack //glTranslatef(-30.0,0.0,0.0); // Move Right 3 Units glTranslatef(-20,0,-100); //translates the current matrix 0 in x, 0 in y and -100 in z glBegin(GL_TRIANGLES); //tells OpenGL that we're going to start drawing triangles glColor3f(1,0,0); //sets the current colour to red glVertex3f(-30,-30,0); //specifies the first vertex of our triangle glColor3f(0,1,0); //sets the current colour to green glVertex3f(30,-30,0); //specifies the second vertex of our triangle glColor3f(0,0,1); //sets the current colour to blue glVertex3f(-30,30,0); //specifies the third vertex of our triangle glEnd(); glPopMatrix(); //retrieves our saved matrix from the top of the matrix stack glutSwapBuffers(); //swaps the front and back buffers } static void camSet(void){ glMatrixMode(GL_PROJECTION); //changes the current matrix to the projection matrix //sets up the projection matrix for a perspective transform gluPerspective(45, //view angle 1.0, //aspect ratio 10.0, //near clip 200.0); //far clip glMatrixMode(GL_MODELVIEW); } static void setShaders(void){ } void main(int argc, char **argv) { glutInit(&argc,argv); //initializes the GLUT framework glutInitDisplayMode(GLUT_RGB | GLUT_DOUBLE | GLUT_DEPTH); //sets up the display mode glutCreateWindow("My first GLUT Trainagle program"); //creates a window glutDisplayFunc(redraw); //specifies our redraw function camSet(); glewInit(); if (glewIsSupported("GL_VERSION_2_0")) printf("Ready for OpenGL 2.0\n"); else { printf("OpenGL 2.0 not supported\n"); exit(1); } setShaders(); glutMainLoop(); //the main loop of the GLUT framework } error comes: 1>------ Build started: Project: myGLSL, Configuration: Debug Win32 ------ 1>Compiling... 1>firstGLSL.cpp 1>Linking... 1>firstGLSL.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol __imp__glewIsSupported referenced in function _main 1>firstGLSL.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol __imp__glewInit referenced in function _main 1>C:\med10\myGLSL\Debug\myGLSL.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 2 unresolved externals 1>Build log was saved at "file://c:\med10\myGLSL\myGLSL\Debug\BuildLog.htm" 1>myGLSL - 3 error(s), 0 warning(s) ========== Build: 0 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========

That error normally means that you have not told the compiler to link with glew32.lib, or that the compiler could not find that library.

Did you also put glew32.lib in Project Options->Linker->Additional Dependencies ? And that the path you put in at step 6 is either an absolute path (C:\myGLSL\library) or relative to the solution file?

What I did was

Under Project Options->Linker->Additional Libarary directories

I have metioned
C:\med10\myGLSL\library..... an absolute path for libs


and under Project Options->c/c++->Additional Include directories.
C:\med10\myGLSL\include;
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\PlatformSDK\Include\gl


As a Folder structure
I have folder called c:->med10->myGLSL

Inside "myGLSL" folder i have 5 items.

1. Again a folder called "myGLSL". Items i have in this folder are

1.a. firstGLSL.cpp
1.b. myGLSL.vcproj
1.c. myGLSL.vcproj.BRAJESH.Brajesh Behari Lal.user
1.d. "Debug" folder

2. "Include" folder // made by me and contains three files.
glew.h,glut.h and wglew.h
3."Library" folder. Which has also three files
glew32.lib, glew32s.lib and glut.lib
4. myGLSL.ncb
5. myGLSL.sln
6. "debug" folder . Contains file myGLSL.pdb

code which i pasted was wriiten into the file "firstGLSL.cpp"

It's not enough to just have the glew.lib in the library path you must also tell visual studio to link it in as well.

Either go into the project properties->linker->input and add "glew32.lib" to the list of libs or alternatively have a line like the following within your firstGLSL.cpp:

#pragma comment( lib, "glew32.lib" )

I've just tried the exact same piece of code without problem so it looks like your compiler is simply failing to find the glew32.lib file or you're forgetting to link to it correctly.

      Hello, everyone! I hope my problem isn't too 'beginnerish'. I'm doing research on motion synthesis now, trying to implement the Deep Mimic paper (DeepMimic) by BINPENG XUE, in this paper, I need to first retarget character A's motion to another character B to make the reference motion clips for character B, since we don't have character B‘s reference motion. The most important thing is that in the paper, the author copied character A's joint's rotation with respective to joint's local coordinate system (not the parent) to character B. In my personal understanding, the joint's rotation with respective to joint's local coordinate system is something like that in the attached photo, where for the Elbow joint, i need to get the Elbow's rotation in the elbow's local coordinate system (i'm very grateful for you to share your ideas if i have misunderstanding about it 🙂)
      I have searched many materials on the internet about how to extract the local joint's information from FBX, the most relative one i found is the pivot rotation( and geometric transformation, object offset transformation). I'm a beginner in computer graphics, and i'm confused about whether the pivot rotation( or geometric transformation, object offset transformation) is exactly the joint's local rotation i'm seeking? I hope someone that have any ideas can help me, I'd be very grateful for any pointers in the right direction. Thanks in advance!

      Hi, I'm a Multimedia Engineering student. I am about to finish my dergree and I'm already thinking about what topic to cover in my final college project.
      I'm interested in the procedural animation with c++ and OpenGL of creatures, something like a spider for example. Can someone tell me what are the issues I should investigate to carry it out? I understand that it has some dependence on artificial intelligence but I do not know to what extent. Can someone help me to find information about it? Thank you very much.
       
      Examples: 
      - Procedural multi-legged walking animation

      So, i'm still on my quest to unterstanding the intricacies of HDR and implementing this into my engine. Currently i'm at the step to implementing tonemapping. I stumbled upon this blogposts:
      http://filmicworlds.com/blog/filmic-tonemapping-operators/
      http://frictionalgames.blogspot.com/2012/09/tech-feature-hdr-lightning.html
      and tried to implement some of those mentioned tonemapping methods into my postprocessing shader.
      The issue is that none of them creates the same results as shown in the blogpost which definitely has to do with the initial range in which the values are stored in the HDR buffer. For simplicity sake i store the values between 0 and 1 in the HDR buffer (ambient light is 0.3, directional light is 0.7)
      This is the tonemapping code:
      vec3 Uncharted2Tonemap(vec3 x) { float A = 0.15; float B = 0.50; float C = 0.10; float D = 0.20; float E = 0.02; float F = 0.30; return ((x*(A*x+C*B)+D*E)/(x*(A*x+B)+D*F))-E/F; } This is without the uncharted tonemapping:
      This is with the uncharted tonemapping:
      Which makes the image a lot darker.
      The shader code looks like this:
      void main() { vec3 color = texture2D(texture_diffuse, vTexcoord).rgb; color = Uncharted2Tonemap(color); //gamma correction (use only if not done in tonemapping code) color = gammaCorrection(color); outputF = vec4(color,1.0f); } Now, from my understanding is that tonemapping should bring the range down from HDR to 0-1.
      But the output of the tonemapping function heavily depends on the initial range of the values in the HDR buffer. (You can't expect to set the sun intensity the first time to 10 and the second time to 1000 and excpect the same result if you feed that into the tonemapper.) So i suppose that this also depends on the exposure which i have to implement?
      To check this i plotted the tonemapping curve:
      You can see that the curve goes only up to around to a value of 0.21 (while being fed a value of 1) and then basically flattens out. (which would explain why the image got darker.)
       
      My guestion is: In what range should the values in the HDR buffer be which then get tonemapped? Do i have to bring them down to a range of 0-1 by multiplying with the exposure?
      For example, if i increase the values of the light by 10 (directional light would be 7 and ambient light 3) then i would need to divide HDR values by 10 in order to get a value range of 0-1 which then could be fed into the tonemapping curve. Is that correct?

      i am reading this book : link
      in the OpenGL Rendering Pipeline section there is a picture like this: link
      but the question is this i dont really understand why it is necessary to turn pixel data in to fragment and then fragment into pixel could please give me a source or a clear Explanation that why it is necessary ? thank you so mu

      I'm using the OPENGL with eclipse+JOGL.
      My goal is to create movement of the camera and the player.
      I create main class, which create some box in 3D and hold 
      an object of PlayerAxis.
      I create PlayerAxis class which hold the axis of the player.
      If we want to move the camera, then in the main class I call to 
      the func "cameraMove"(from PlayerAxis) and it update the player axis.
      That's work good.
      The problem start if I move the camera on 2 axis, 
      for example if I move with the camera right(that's on the y axis)
      and then down(on the x axis) -
      in some point the move front is not to the front anymore..
      In order to move to the front, I do
      player.playerMoving(0, 0, 1);
      And I learn that in order to keep the front move, 
      I need to convert (0, 0, 1) to the player axis, and then add this.
      I think I dont do the convert right.. 
      I will be glad for help!

      Here is part of my PlayerAxis class:
       
      //player coordinate float x[] = new float[3]; float y[] = new float[3]; float z[] = new float[3]; public PlayerAxis(float move_step, float angle_move) { x[0] = 1; y[1] = 1; z[2] = -1; step = move_step; angle = angle_move; setTransMatrix(); } public void cameraMoving(float angle_step, String axis) { float[] new_x = x; float[] new_y = y; float[] new_z = z; float alfa = angle_step * angle; switch(axis) { case "x": new_z = addVectors(multScalar(z, COS(alfa)), multScalar(y, SIN(alfa))); new_y = subVectors(multScalar(y, COS(alfa)), multScalar(z, SIN(alfa))); break; case "y": new_x = addVectors(multScalar(x, COS(alfa)), multScalar(z, SIN(alfa))); new_z = subVectors(multScalar(z, COS(alfa)), multScalar(x, SIN(alfa))); break; case "z": new_x = addVectors(multScalar(x, COS(alfa)), multScalar(y, SIN(alfa))); new_y = subVectors(multScalar(y, COS(alfa)), multScalar(x, SIN(alfa))); } x = new_x; y = new_y; z = new_z; normalization(); } public void playerMoving(float x_move, float y_move, float z_move) { float[] move = new float[3]; move[0] = x_move; move[1] = y_move; move[2] = z_move; setTransMatrix(); float[] trans_move = transVector(move); position[0] = position[0] + step*trans_move[0]; position[1] = position[1] + step*trans_move[1]; position[2] = position[2] + step*trans_move[2]; } public void setTransMatrix() { for (int i = 0; i < 3; i++) { coordiTrans[0][i] = x[i]; coordiTrans[1][i] = y[i]; coordiTrans[2][i] = z[i]; } } public float[] transVector(float[] v) { return multiplyMatrixInVector(coordiTrans, v); }  
      and in the main class i have this:
       
      public void keyPressed(KeyEvent e) { if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_ESCAPE) { System.exit(0); //player move } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_W) { //front //moveAmount[2] += -0.1f; player.playerMoving(0, 0, 1); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_S) { //back //moveAmount[2] += 0.1f; player.playerMoving(0, 0, -1); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_A) { //left //moveAmount[0] += -0.1f; player.playerMoving(-1, 0, 0); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_D) { //right //moveAmount[0] += 0.1f; player.playerMoving(1, 0, 0); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_E) { //moveAmount[0] += 0.1f; player.playerMoving(0, 1, 0); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_Q) { //moveAmount[0] += 0.1f; player.playerMoving(0, -1, 0); //camera move } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_I) { //up player.cameraMoving(1, "x"); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_K) { //down player.cameraMoving(-1, "x"); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_L) { //right player.cameraMoving(-1, "y"); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_J) { //left player.cameraMoving(1, "y"); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_O) { //right round player.cameraMoving(-1, "z"); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_U) { //left round player.cameraMoving(1, "z"); } }  
      finallt found it.... i confused with the transformation matrix row and col. thanks anyway!

      So, i'm currently trying to implement an SSAO shader from THIS tutorial and i'm running into a few issues here.
      Now, this SSAO method requires view space positions and normals. I'm storing the normals in my deferred renderer in world-space so i had to do a conversion and reconstruct the position from the depth buffer.
      And something there goes horribly wrong (which has probably to do with worldspace to viewspace transformations).
      (here is the full shader source code if someone wants to take a look at it)
      Now, i suspect that the normals are the culprit.
      vec3 normal = ((uNormalViewMatrix*vec4(normalize(texture2D(sNormals, vTexcoord).rgb),1.0)).xyz); "sNormals" is a 2D texture which stores the normals in world space in a RGB FP16 buffer.
      Now i can't use the camera viewspace matrix to transform the normals into viewspace as the cameras position isn't set at (0,0,0), thus skewing the result.
      So what i did is to create a new viewmatrix specifically for this normal without the position at vec3(0,0,0);
      //"camera" is the camera which was used for rendering the normal buffer renderer.setUniform4m(ressources->shaderSSAO->getUniform("uNormalViewMatrix"), glmExt::createViewMatrix(glm::vec3(0,0,0),camera.getForward(),camera.getUp())//parameters are (position,forwardVector,upVector) ); Though i have the feeling this is the wrong approach. Is this right or is there a better/correct way of transforming a world space normal into viewspace?

      Hi,
      I'm trying mix two textures using own shader system, but I have a problem (I think) with uniforms.
      Code: https://github.com/HawkDeath/shader/tree/test
      To debug I use RenderDocs, but I did not receive good results. In the first attachment is my result, in the second attachment is what should be.
      PS. I base on this tutorial https://learnopengl.com/Getting-started/Textures.

      I'm having issues loading textures, as I'm clueless on how to handle / load images maybe I missing something, but the past few days I just google a lot to try to find a solution. Well theres two issues I think, one I'm using Kotlin Native (EAP) and OpenGL wrapper / STB image, so I'm not quite sure wheres the issue, if someone with more experience could give me some hints on how to solve this issue?
      The code is here, if I'm not mistaken the workflow is pretty straight forward, stbi_load returns the pixels of the image (as char array or byte array) and you need to pass those pixels directly to glTexImage2D, so a I'm missing something here it seems.

      I've noticed in most post processing tutorials several shaders are used one after another: one for bloom, another for contrast, and so on. For example: 
      postprocessing.quad.bind() // Effect 1 effect1.shader.bind(); postprocessing.texture.bind(); postprocessing.quad.draw(); postprocessing.texture.unbind(); effect1.shader.unbind(); // Effect 2 effect2.shader.bind(); // ...and so on postprocessing.quad.unbind() Is this good practice, how many shaders can I bind and unbind before I hit performance issues? I'm afraid I don't know what the good practices are in open/webGL regarding binding and unbinding resources. 
      I'm guessing binding many shaders at post processing is okay since the scene has already been updated and I'm just working on a quad and texture at that moment. Or is it more optimal to put shader code in chunks and bind less frequently? I'd love to use several shaders at post though. 
      Another example of what I'm doing at the moment:
      1) Loop through GameObjects, bind its phong shader (send color, shadow, spec, normal samplers), unbind all.
      2) At post: bind post processor quad, and loop/bind through different shader effects, and so on ...
      Thanks all!
