What is causing this? (see through triangle-shaped section in a quad?)

Hi all, I can paste/upload my code if you like - please let me know if this is what I should do :-) I am playing around with NeHe's tutorials on OpenGL. But I've got a problem. I don't need to know exactly which line of code is wrong (hence I haven't posted the code), just what could be causing this problem? http://www.yetanotherimagehost.com/image/1358592795/img.gif Thanks!

Seeing the code can help us determine the problem, so please post it (using source tags. See the FAQ if you don't know how).

No problem.

I'm using C++ in Visual Studio 2003.

Here is the DrawGLScene function which sets the scene - the problem must be in here somewhere. Also, ignore the comments on the colors ;)


int DrawGLScene(GLvoid) // Here's Where We Do All The Drawing
{
glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT | GL_DEPTH_BUFFER_BIT); // Clear Screen And Depth Buffer

glLoadIdentity(); // Reset The Current Modelview Matrix
glTranslatef(-1.5f+tXoffset,0.0f+tYoffset,-6.0f+tZoffset); // Move Left 1.5 Units And Into The Screen 6.0
glRotatef(tRotY,0.0f,1.0f,0.0f); // Rotate The Triangle On The Y axis
glRotatef(tRotX,1.0f,0.0f,0.0f); // Rotate The Triangle On The Y axis

//Draw Pyramid
glBegin(GL_TRIANGLES);
//Font
glColor3f(0.5f,0.5f,1.0f); // blue
glVertex3f( 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f); // Top
glVertex3f(-1.0f,-1.0f, 1.0f); // Bottom Left
glVertex3f( 1.0f,-1.0f, 1.0f); // Bottom Right
//Left
glColor3f(0.5f,1.0f,0.0f); // greeny
glVertex3f( 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f); // Top
glVertex3f(-1.0f,-1.0f, -1.0f); // Bottom Left
glVertex3f(-1.0f,-1.0f, +1.0f); // Bottom Right
//Right
glColor3f(0.0f,0.8f,0.27f); // red
glVertex3f( 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f); // Top
glVertex3f( 1.0f,-1.0f, 1.0f); // Bottom Left
glVertex3f( 1.0f,-1.0f,-1.0f); // Bottom Right
//Back
glColor3f(0.94f,0.10f,0.4f); // blue
glVertex3f( 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f); // Top
glVertex3f(-1.0f,-1.0f,-1.0f); // Bottom Left
glVertex3f( 1.0f,-1.0f,-1.0f); // Bottom Right
glEnd();
glBegin(GL_QUADS);
//Bottom
glColor3f(1.0f,0.0f,0.0f); // red
glVertex3f(-1.0f,-1.0f, 1.0f); // Top Left
glVertex3f( 1.0f,-1.0f,-1.0f); // Bottom Left
glVertex3f(-1.0f,-1.0f,-1.0f); // Bottom Right
glVertex3f( 1.0f,-1.0f, 1.0f); // Top Right
glEnd();


glLoadIdentity(); // Reset The Current Modelview Matrix
glTranslatef(1.0f,0.0f,-6.0f); // Move Right 3 Units
glRotatef(qRot,1.0f,0.0f,0.0f); // Rotate The Quad On The Y axis

glColor3f(1.0f,1.0f,1.0f); // Set The Color To Blue One Time Only
glBegin(GL_QUADS); // Draw A Quad
glVertex3f(-1.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f); // Top Left
glVertex3f( 1.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f); // Top Right
glVertex3f( 1.0f,-1.0f, 0.0f); // Bottom Right
glColor3f(1.0f,0.0f,0.0f); // Set The Color To Red One Time Only
glVertex3f(-1.0f,-1.0f, 0.0f); // Bottom Left
glEnd(); // Finished Drawing The Quad

return TRUE; // Everything Went OK
}





And the full source code is here if you want it - I just thought I'd seperate the above as that's probably the most relevant bit!

I think it's because the vertices that are shared between the pyramid floor and it's sides are not specified properly (that is, they don't coencide, even though they should).

Ah right you are! I didn't spot that >.<

I changed the first quad's code to this and it works now:



glBegin(GL_QUADS);
//Bottom
glColor3f(1.0f,0.0f,0.0f); // red
glVertex3f(-1.0f,-1.0f, 1.0f); // Front Left
glVertex3f(-1.0f,-1.0f,-1.0f); // Back Left
glVertex3f( 1.0f,-1.0f,-1.0f); // Back Right
glVertex3f( 1.0f,-1.0f, 1.0f); // Front Right
glEnd();



Thank you for your help! :)

From looking at the screen shot, it seems like your using the top left vertex twice for both triangles. Imagine the floor of the pyramid like so:


v1: x--x :v2
| /|
|/ |
v3: x--x :v4

// Gotta love the ascii art =]




It seems like you've created the floor using the following triangle pattern:

triangle1: v1, v2, v3
triangle2: v1, v4, v3

instead of:

triangle1: v1, v2, v3
triangle2: v3, v2, v4

Or you could simply use a quad instead of two triangles with the following vertex order:

v1, v2, v4, v3

EDIT: Too slow :P
