      Good evening everyone!

      I was wondering if there is something equivalent of  GL_NV_blend_equation_advanced for AMD?
      Basically I'm trying to find more compatible version of it.

      Thank you!

      Hello guys, 
       
      Please tell me! 
      How do I know? Why does wavefront not show for me?
      I already checked I have non errors yet.
      using OpenTK; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.IO; using System.Text; namespace Tutorial_08.net.sourceskyboxer { public class WaveFrontLoader { private static List<Vector3> inPositions; private static List<Vector2> inTexcoords; private static List<Vector3> inNormals; private static List<float> positions; private static List<float> texcoords; private static List<int> indices; public static RawModel LoadObjModel(string filename, Loader loader) { inPositions = new List<Vector3>(); inTexcoords = new List<Vector2>(); inNormals = new List<Vector3>(); positions = new List<float>(); texcoords = new List<float>(); indices = new List<int>(); int nextIdx = 0; using (var reader = new StreamReader(File.Open("Contents/" + filename + ".obj", FileMode.Open), Encoding.UTF8)) { string line = reader.ReadLine(); int i = reader.Read(); while (true) { string[] currentLine = line.Split(); if (currentLine[0] == "v") { Vector3 pos = new Vector3(float.Parse(currentLine[1]), float.Parse(currentLine[2]), float.Parse(currentLine[3])); inPositions.Add(pos); if (currentLine[1] == "t") { Vector2 tex = new Vector2(float.Parse(currentLine[1]), float.Parse(currentLine[2])); inTexcoords.Add(tex); } if (currentLine[1] == "n") { Vector3 nom = new Vector3(float.Parse(currentLine[1]), float.Parse(currentLine[2]), float.Parse(currentLine[3])); inNormals.Add(nom); } } if (currentLine[0] == "f") { Vector3 pos = inPositions[0]; positions.Add(pos.X); positions.Add(pos.Y); positions.Add(pos.Z); Vector2 tc = inTexcoords[0]; texcoords.Add(tc.X); texcoords.Add(tc.Y); indices.Add(nextIdx); ++nextIdx; } reader.Close(); return loader.loadToVAO(positions.ToArray(), texcoords.ToArray(), indices.ToArray()); } } } } } And It have tried other method but it can't show for me.  I am mad now. Because any OpenTK developers won't help me.
      Please help me how do I fix.

      And my download (mega.nz) should it is original but I tried no success...
      - Add blend source and png file here I have tried tried,.....  
       
      PS: Why is our community not active? I wait very longer. Stop to lie me!
      Thanks !

      I wasn't sure if this would be the right place for a topic like this so sorry if it isn't.
      I'm currently working on a project for Uni using FreeGLUT to make a simple solar system simulation. I've got to the point where I've implemented all the planets and have used a Scene Graph to link them all together. The issue I'm having with now though is basically the planets and moons orbit correctly at their own orbit speeds.
      I'm not really experienced with using matrices for stuff like this so It's likely why I can't figure out how exactly to get it working. This is where I'm applying the transformation matrices, as well as pushing and popping them. This is within the Render function that every planet including the sun and moons will have and run.
      if (tag != "Sun") { glRotatef(orbitAngle, orbitRotation.X, orbitRotation.Y, orbitRotation.Z); } glPushMatrix(); glTranslatef(position.X, position.Y, position.Z); glRotatef(rotationAngle, rotation.X, rotation.Y, rotation.Z); glScalef(scale.X, scale.Y, scale.Z); glDrawElements(GL_TRIANGLES, mesh->indiceCount, GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT, mesh->indices); if (tag != "Sun") { glPopMatrix(); } The "If(tag != "Sun")" parts are my attempts are getting the planets to orbit correctly though it likely isn't the way I'm meant to be doing it. So I was wondering if someone would be able to help me? As I really don't have an idea on what I would do to get it working. Using the if statement is truthfully the closest I've got to it working but there are still weird effects like the planets orbiting faster then they should depending on the number of planets actually be updated/rendered.

      Hello everyone
      For @80bserver8 nice job - I have found Google search. How did you port from Javascript WebGL to C# OpenTK.?
      I have been searched Google but it shows f***ing Unity 3D. I really want know how do I understand I want start with OpenTK But I want know where is porting of Javascript and C#?
       
      Thanks!

So I am trying to draw a line with an arrow at the end. For the lines I am using GL_LINES, and for the arrow at the end, I am using gluCylinder(), with the base set to zero to make a cone for the arrow head. What I cannot for the life of me seem to figure out, is how to orient the cone so that it is coincident with the original line. Psuedocode looks something like: 1. Draw line 2. Calculate 3-vector coincident with line: N = TO - FROM 3. glTranslate from origin to TO 4. glRotate so the z-axis (where gluCylinder draws) is coincident with N 5. call gluCylinder() Results: the point of the cone in every case is located at TO, but the angle of rotation for each cone is different, and not at all coincident with N. For the rotation I am using:
vector<float> normal(3);
float vx =tTo[0]-tFrom[0];     // tTo and tFrom are the endpoints of the line
float vy =tTo[1]-tFrom[1];
float vz =tTo[2]-tFrom[2];
float dr = sqrt(vx*vx+vy*vy+vz*vz); // use dr to normalize the vector
normal[0]=vx/dr;
normal[1]=vy/dr;
normal[2]=vz/dr;
...
...
float rTd = 180.0 / 3.14159265;   // conversion from radians to degrees
float theta = rTd*acos(n[2]);     // angle through which to rotate, from dot product
glRotatef(theta,-1.0*normal[1],-1.0*normal[0],0);  // axis of rotation from cross product


Any help on this would be much appreciated! Thanks, Gary

I don't check all your calculations but I just notice that I don't use the glRotatef function as you do.

For instance I would use it as follows:
glRotatef(theta,1.0,0.0,0.0); // rotation around x-axis
glRotatef(theta2,0.0,1.0,0.0); // rotation around y-axis
glRotatef(theta3,0.0,0.0,1.0); // rotation around z-axis

From your vector N you have to calculate 3 angles to make your cylinder coincident with your line.

And remember to call glTranslatef(...) BEFORE glRotatef(...)

So I tried an approach like that earlier, which looked like:



glPushMatrix();
glTranslatef(x, y, z);
glRotatef(90-rTd*atan(normal[2]/normal[1]),1.0,0,0);
glRotatef(90-rTd*atan(normal[2]/normal[0]),0,1.0,0);
glRotatef(rTd*atan(normal[0]/normal[1]),0,0,1.0);
gluCylinder(...);
glPopMatrix;




Perhaps my calculations are off? It's been a while since trig in high school...

Thanks!
Gary

There's no need to use three rotations for this; one is plenty :)

@The OP: I didn't look at your code too carefully, but after computing the angle, you'll actually want to rotate about an axis that is perpendicular to both the reference vector (the z axis) and the desired direction vector ('normal' in your example code).

You can compute this vector using the cross product. I believe glRotate() can accept a non-unit axis of rotation, so there's no need to normalize it (I'm not sure what glRotate() does when presented with an axis that is near-zero-length though).

The Red Book recommends this approach, too, using only one glRotate*() command where the angle is determined by the dot product of the two vectors, and the axis of rotation is the vector normal to the two vectors, which is given by the cross product. In the first post I tried to do this, but somehow it didn't work. Maybe my math is wrong?

A directed line has two endpoints, a from-point and a to-point, with coordinates given by the 3-vectors

from = (f1,f2,f3)

and

to = (t1,t2,t3)

Therefore the normal vector that would be coincident with this line is n = to - from,

n = (t1-f1,t2-f2,t3-f3)

Since the gluCylinder draws the cone (representing the arrow at the tip of the directed line) in the z-axis by default, the vector of the cone is

c = (0,0,1)

Then the angle between them, theta is given by the dot product

n dot c = |n|*|c| cos (theta)

and the angle theta = acos ( (n dot c) / (|n|*|c|) ),

so theta = acos ((t3-f3) / (sqrt(n1^2_n2^2+n3^2)*1)

The axis of rotation is given by the cross product,

n x c = (t1-f1,t2-f2,t3-f3) x (0,0,1) = (t2-f2, t1-f1, 0)

so the final rotate command should be

glRotatef(theta, t2-f2, t1-f1, 0);

but for some reason this doesn't work! does anyone know why?

thanks!

If I remember well my maths lessons, n^c = (t2-f2, -T1 + F1, 0)
You may also normalize it before calling glRotate.
