OpenGL Problem loading .obj model. Please help.

Recommended Posts

Robo-Link    100
I am trying to create a simple program that displays models and such (Think of it as a game without any actual "game"). I'm using the Ne(w)He second lesson as my base, but I've managed to use SOIL for textures, and use a greatly modified readFile function to load custom files in perfectly. However, I am currently trying to load a .obj file created from Animator, and it's not working right. These are the structs I'm using:

struct Vertex
		{
			float x, y, z;

			Vertex(float x, float y, float z)
			{
				this->x = x;
				this->y = y;
				this->z = z;
			}
		};

		struct uv
		{
			float u, v;

			uv(float u, float v)
			{
				this->u = u;
				this->v = v;
			}
		};

		struct part
		{
			std::vector<Vertex> m_Vertices; //We have a vector of vertices, each vertex with its 3 coordinates
			//std::vector<Vertex> m_Colors; //also 3 floats for colors, so we just use the Vertex-struct
			std::vector<Vertex> m_Normals; //also 3 floats for colors, so we just use the Vertex-struct
			std::vector<uv> m_uvcords; // vector of uv maps
			GLuint tex_2d;
			int vertices;

			part()
			{

			}

			~part()
			{
				this->m_Vertices.clear();
			//	this->m_Colors.clear();
				this->m_uvcords.clear();
				this->m_Normals.clear();
				this->tex_2d = NULL;
				this->vertices = 0;

			}
		};

		std::vector<part> m_parts;




And this is the readFile function:
Lesson02::part Lesson02::readFile(const char *filename)
{
	Lesson02::part temp;
	Lesson02::part temp2;
	float x, y, z, u, v, r, g, b;
	int texpoints;
	int normals;
	int numfaces;
	int t1, t2 = 0;
	FILE *filein;
	char oneline[255];
	int faces[12][5][3];
	filein = fopen(filename, "rt");				// File To Load World Data From

	readstr(filein,oneline);
	sscanf(oneline, "No. points %d:\n", &temp.vertices);

	cout << temp.vertices << endl;

	//readstr(filein,oneline);
	//sscanf(oneline, "TEX %d %d\n", &t1, &t2);
	
	temp2.tex_2d = SOIL_load_OGL_texture
		(
			readTexName(0, 2).c_str(),
			SOIL_LOAD_AUTO,
			SOIL_CREATE_NEW_ID,
			SOIL_FLAG_MIPMAPS | SOIL_FLAG_NTSC_SAFE_RGB | SOIL_FLAG_COMPRESS_TO_DXT
		);

	
	cout << readTexName(t1, t2) << endl;

	//glBindTexture( GL_TEXTURE_2D, tex_2d );

	for (int i = 0; i < temp.vertices; i++)
	{
			readstr(filein,oneline);
			sscanf(oneline, "v %f %f %f", &x, &y, &z);
			cout << x << " " << y << " " << z << endl;
			temp.m_Vertices.push_back(Vertex( x, y, z)); 
	}

	cout << "V  NORMAL MAP  V"<< endl;

	readstr(filein,oneline);
	sscanf(oneline, "No. normals %d:\n", &normals);

	for (int i = 0; i < normals; i++)
	{
			readstr(filein,oneline);
			sscanf(oneline, "vn %f %f %f", &x, &y, &z);
			cout << x << "n" << y << "n" << z << endl;
			temp.m_Normals.push_back(Vertex( x, y, z)); 
	}

	cout << "V  UV MAP  V"<< endl;

	readstr(filein,oneline);
	sscanf(oneline, "No. texture coordinates %d:\n", &texpoints);

	for (int i = 0; i < texpoints; i++)
	{
			readstr(filein,oneline);
			sscanf(oneline, "vt %f %f", &u, &v);
			cout << u << " " << v << endl;
			temp.m_uvcords.push_back(uv(u, v)); 
	}

	cout << "V  FACES MAP  V"<< endl;

	readstr(filein,oneline);
	sscanf(oneline, "No. faces %d:\n", &numfaces);

	for (int i = 0; i < numfaces; i++)
	{
			readstr(filein,oneline);
			sscanf(oneline, "f %d/%d/%d %d/%d/%d %d/%d/%d %d/%d/%d %d/%d/%d", &faces[i][0][0], &faces[i][0][1], &faces[i][0][2],
				&faces[i][1][0], &faces[i][1][1], &faces[i][1][2],&faces[i][2][0], &faces[i][2][1], &faces[i][2][2],
				&faces[i][3][0], &faces[i][3][1], &faces[i][3][2], &faces[i][4][0], &faces[i][4][1], &faces[i][4][2]);
			
			cout << "f " << faces[i][0][0] << "/" << faces[i][0][1]<< "/" <<faces[i][0][2]<< " " <<
				faces[i][1][0] << "/" << faces[i][1][1] << "/" << faces[i][1][2] << " " << faces[i][2][0] << "/" 
				<< faces[i][2][1] << "/" << faces[i][2][2] << " " << faces[i][3][0] << "/" << faces[i][3][1] << "/" << faces[i][3][2]
			<< " " << faces[i][4][0] << "/" << faces[i][4][1] << "/" << faces[i][4][2] << endl;
			//temp.m_uvcords.push_back(uv(u, v)); 
	}

	temp2.vertices = temp.vertices;

	for (int i = 0; i < numfaces; i++)
	{
		for(int j = 0; j < 5; j++)
		{
			cout << "F Vert " << i << " " << j << ": " << faces[i][j][0] << endl;
			cout << "F Norm " << i << " " << j << ": " << faces[i][j][2] << endl;
			cout << "F Tex " << i << " " << j << ": " << faces[i][j][1] << endl;
			
	
			temp2.m_Vertices.push_back(temp.m_Vertices[(faces[i][j][0] - 1)]);
			temp2.m_uvcords.push_back(temp.m_uvcords[(faces[i][j][1] - 1)]);
			temp2.m_Normals.push_back(temp.m_Normals[(faces[i][j][2] - 1)]);
			
		}
	}
	fclose(filein);
	return temp2;
}



And this is the drawing part of it
void Lesson02::draw()
{
	int parts = 1;

	glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT | GL_DEPTH_BUFFER_BIT);	// Clear Screen And Depth Buffer
	glLoadIdentity();					// Reset The Current Modelview Matrix
	
	glTranslatef(transX, 0.0f,transY);
	glRotatef(rotx, 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f);
	//Now we need to tell OpenGL to use the arrays we filled with data
	glEnableClientState(GL_VERTEX_ARRAY);   //We want a vertex array
	//glEnableClientState(GL_COLOR_ARRAY);    //and a color array
	glEnableClientState(GL_NORMAL_ARRAY);    //and a color array
	glEnableClientState(GL_TEXTURE_COORD_ARRAY);    //and a color array

	for(int i = 0; i < parts; i++)
	{
		glBindTexture( GL_TEXTURE_2D, m_parts[i].tex_2d );
		glVertexPointer(3, GL_FLOAT, 0, &m_parts[i].m_Vertices[0]);   
		glNormalPointer(GL_FLOAT, 0, &m_parts[i].m_Normals[0]);  
		
		//glColorPointer(3, GL_FLOAT, 0, &m_parts[i].m_Colors[0]);      
		glTexCoordPointer(2, GL_FLOAT, 0, &m_parts[i].m_uvcords[0]);
		glDrawArrays(GL_POLYGON, 0, m_parts[i].vertices); 
	}

	
	rotx += 0.05f;

	//glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, tex_2d);

	//Disable using the Vertex and Color array
	//glDisableClientState(GL_COLOR_ARRAY);
	glDisableClientState(GL_VERTEX_ARRAY);
	glDisableClientState(GL_NORMAL_ARRAY);
	glDisableClientState(GL_TEXTURE_COORD_ARRAY);
}



I originally had the program so it would return "temp" from readFile and not "temp2" but that made it display a garbled mess of triangles, so now it returns temp 2 so that it is only drawing the face parts. It looks a lot better than what it did, but it's still not displaying the whole model. Here's the model:
# Created with Anim8or 0.95
# Object "object01":
# ComRec:

# ComRec:
#g mesh01

Please help me figure out whats wrong. I'm nearly at my wits end with this. Thank you for your help in advance.

However, I am currently trying to load a .obj file created from Animator, and it's not working right.
Your major problem is that your .obj file contains quads, not triangles. Check and see if Anim8or has an option to trianglulate meshes on export.

Quote:
			~part()
{
this->m_Vertices.clear();
// this->m_Colors.clear();
this->m_uvcords.clear();
this->m_Normals.clear();
this->tex_2d = NULL;
this->vertices = 0;

}
Two stylistic comments:
  • There is no need to clear() a std::vector in your destructor, as the vector does that itself in its own destructor.
  • You only need to use the this-> syntax for accessing member variables if the member variable has the same name as a function parameter, otherwise the compiler will deduce the this-> automatically.

Okay, I am not able to find any way to triangulate meshs on anim8or. I am currently looking for a model development program that can. I also tried changing GL_POLYGON to GL_QUADS and it looked even worse. I tried that with both temp and temp2. Also the model is actually one of those hexigon ball things. It looked to me like it'd have 5/6 point faces, and not quads. Am I missing something?

Okay, I am now using Blender as my 3D modeler. I have created a triangulated mesh that is a .obj file (a simple block) and when I run that and return temp I get 2 random triangles, but when I return temp2 I get 1 of the 6 faces. The only change I made to the code above is that my faces array is now a [12][3][3], and other changes to reflect that. Anyway, I still have no idea how to make this thing load properly. Please help.

Here is the new .obj file

Doesn't the OBJ spec (such as it is...) restrict n>3-gons to be coplanar and convex? In which case you can triangulate them by pretending they're a triangle fan and making a triangle using the 0-1-2, 0-2-3, 0-3-4, etc. vertices.

I recently made my own opengl obj renderer, and GenPFault is right.
If there are more than 3 face elements, construct new triangles by treating the faces as a triangle fan.

ex:
f 4 3 2 1 5

new f = 4 3 2 4 2 1 4 1 5

      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.

      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,
      http://www.informit.com/articles/article.aspx?p=2120983
      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.
      Thanks!
