OpenGL manual mipmap creation

Recommended Posts

I have the following proglem: Until now i created mipmaps using gluBuild2DMipmaps which worked like a charm. But now i wanted to use s3tc compressed textures using this [http://www.opengl.org/registry/specs/EXT/texture_compression_s3tc.txt] extension. I have all the Mipmaps precalculated in DDS files, and when i open those in ATI's compressionator it reads the mipmaps correctly, so obviously no problem here. I am loading the mipmaps using DevIL, which seems to work - it tells me the right number of mipmaps, and if i load any of the mipmap levels as a single texture (without mipmaps), it works - i can see the texture correctly in the gDebugger which also reports the size correctly for the compressed texture. Now the problem is: i can't get mipmaps to work. The code i use to create them:
int mipmaps = ilGetInteger(IL_NUM_MIPMAPS);
for(int i=0; i<mipmaps; i++)
{
    // reset mipmap level to main image, otherwise the counter (i) is relative from the last mipmap level.
    ilBindImage(imageName);
    ilActiveMipmap(i);
    int width =  ilGetInteger(IL_IMAGE_WIDTH);
    int height = ilGetInteger(IL_IMAGE_HEIGHT);
    int size = ilGetDXTCData(NULL,0,dxtcMode);
    ILubyte* buffer = new ILubyte[size];
    ilGetDXTCData(buffer,size,dxtcMode);
    glCompressedTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, i, dxtcILtoGL[dxtcMode], width, height, 0, size, buffer);
    delete[] buffer;
}
dxtcMode is one of the supported DevIL compression modes (also read from DevIL, so it's the correct one for each image): * IL_DXT1 * IL_DXT1a * IL_DXT3 * IL_DXT5 and dxtcILtoGL is a map mapping from the DevIL modes to the GL modes: * GL_COMPRESSED_RGB_S3TC_DXT1_EXT * GL_COMPRESSED_RGBA_S3TC_DXT1_EXT * GL_COMPRESSED_RGBA_S3TC_DXT3_EXT * GL_COMPRESSED_RGBA_S3TC_DXT5_EXT When i debug this code in gDebugger, it seems to work correctly, also the texture is created and its size grows with each mipmap. But ingame i can't see any textures as long as mipmapping is enabled. if i disable mipmaps (
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
instead of
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_LINEAR_MIPMAP_LINEAR);
) everything works. I think i can exclude DevIL as an error source, because as said, if i do something like
ilActiveMipmap(3);
int width =  ilGetInteger(IL_IMAGE_WIDTH);
int height = ilGetInteger(IL_IMAGE_HEIGHT);
int size = ilGetDXTCData(NULL,0,dxtcMode);
ILubyte* buffer = new ILubyte[size];
ilGetDXTCData(buffer,size,dxtcMode);
glCompressedTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, dxtcILtoGL[dxtcMode], width, height, 0, size, buffer);
delete[] buffer;
without the for loop, it works (without mipmaps of course). The *exact* same thing happens by the way when i do the texture uploading without the compression (again everything seems to be ok in gDebugger, but ingame i only see textures if i disable mipmapping):
int mipmaps = ilGetInteger(IL_NUM_MIPMAPS);
for(int i=0; i<mipmaps; i++)
{
    ilBindImage(imageName);
    ilActiveMipmap(i);
    glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, i, ilGetInteger(IL_IMAGE_BPP), ilGetInteger(IL_IMAGE_WIDTH), ilGetInteger(IL_IMAGE_HEIGHT), 0, ilGetInteger(IL_IMAGE_FORMAT),GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE,ilGetData()); 
}
The posted code snippet is at exactly the same location in my code where gluBuild2DMipmaps was before. in fact there's only an if switching between compressed and uncompressed textures, uncompressed ones are still generated with gluBuild2DMipmaps (and mipmapping still works with those). At last, the gluBuild2DMipmaps code i use to create mipmaps (which works):
gluBuild2DMipmaps(GL_TEXTURE_2D, ilGetInteger(IL_IMAGE_BPP), ilGetInteger(IL_IMAGE_WIDTH), ilGetInteger(IL_IMAGE_HEIGHT), ilGetInteger(IL_IMAGE_FORMAT), GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, ilGetData());

yeah *looks* great but it seems the mipmaps created that way are not compressed. gDebugger reports the texture to be more than double in size than the one with all the mipmaps uploaded manually. And if i wouldn't need compression i could as well use gluBuild2DMipmaps :(

I would assume if you call glGetPixels or whatever, you can see if the data comes back compressed? Although I dont know if it by default will give convert compressed and give you the uncompressed RGB values. You could try it with a non-mip map texture and see. If so , check the other ones.

But as the other guy said, each texture has a format, so it would know all the offsets for each compressed piece of data. I doubt it would hold 2 types of data because it would have to switch algorithm offsets.

Got it working!
Even if auto generated mipmaps were saved in the correct compression format, i was reluctant to use them because they're deprecated... (and also because I seem to be too stubborn not to get my original idea to work ;-))

so what was missing was this single line:
glTexParameteri (GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAX_LEVEL, mipmaps-1);


Seems OpenGL somehow considered my texture as incomplete although i uploaded all the mipmap levels. The -1 is because mipmaps contains the number of leves and i need the index of the max level.

Anyway thank you for your help!

pontomedon

P.S.: for others who have similar problems in the future: There i got the idea from.

EDIT: LOOOOL
I know why OpenGL was thinking that the texture was incomplete: ilGetInteger(IL_NUM_MIPMAPS); actually returns the number of *MipMap* levels, not the total number of layers. so since the for loop was going from 0 to mipmaps I always missed the last mipmap level (1x1). letting the loop go to mipmaps+1 the GL_TEXTURE_MAX_LEVEL property is not necessary...

what a dumb mistake...

Yes, glGetTexImage will uncompress compressed texture. To check if texture is compressed you call glGetTexLevelParameter with GL_TEXTURE_COMPRESSED pname. If you want to get back compressed image, you should use glGetCompressedTexImage function.

Yes, but glGenerateMipmap(GLenum target) hasn't been deprecated.

      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.

      Hi i am new to this forum  i wanted to ask for help from all of you i want to generate real time terrain using a 32 bit heightmap i am good at c++ and have started learning Opengl as i am very interested in making landscapes in opengl i have looked around the internet for help about this topic but i am not getting the hang of the concepts and what they are doing can some here suggests me some good resources for making terrain engine please for example like tutorials,books etc so that i can understand the whole concept of terrain generation.

      Hey guys. I'm trying to get my application to work on my Nvidia GTX 970 desktop. It currently works on my Intel HD 3000 laptop, but on the desktop, every bind textures specifically from framebuffers, I get half a second of lag. This is done 4 times as I have three RGBA textures and one depth 32F buffer. I tried to use debugging software for the first time - RenderDoc only shows SwapBuffers() and no OGL calls, while Nvidia Nsight crashes upon execution, so neither are helpful. Without binding it runs regularly. This does not happen with non-framebuffer binds.
      GLFramebuffer::GLFramebuffer(FramebufferCreateInfo createInfo) { glGenFramebuffers(1, &fbo); glBindFramebuffer(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, fbo); textures = new GLuint[createInfo.numColorTargets]; glGenTextures(createInfo.numColorTargets, textures); GLenum *DrawBuffers = new GLenum[createInfo.numColorTargets]; for (uint32_t i = 0; i < createInfo.numColorTargets; i++) { glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, textures[i]); GLint internalFormat; GLenum format; TranslateFormats(createInfo.colorFormats[i], format, internalFormat); // returns GL_RGBA and GL_RGBA glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, internalFormat, createInfo.width, createInfo.height, 0, format, GL_FLOAT, 0); glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_NEAREST); glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_NEAREST); DrawBuffers[i] = GL_COLOR_ATTACHMENT0 + i; glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0); glFramebufferTexture(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, GL_COLOR_ATTACHMENT0 + i, textures[i], 0); } if (createInfo.depthFormat != FORMAT_DEPTH_NONE) { GLenum depthFormat; switch (createInfo.depthFormat) { case FORMAT_DEPTH_16: depthFormat = GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT16; break; case FORMAT_DEPTH_24: depthFormat = GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT24; break; case FORMAT_DEPTH_32: depthFormat = GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT32; break; case FORMAT_DEPTH_24_STENCIL_8: depthFormat = GL_DEPTH24_STENCIL8; break; case FORMAT_DEPTH_32_STENCIL_8: depthFormat = GL_DEPTH32F_STENCIL8; break; } glGenTextures(1, &depthrenderbuffer); glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, depthrenderbuffer); glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, depthFormat, createInfo.width, createInfo.height, 0, GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT, GL_FLOAT, 0); glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_NEAREST); glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_NEAREST); glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0); glFramebufferTexture(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, GL_DEPTH_ATTACHMENT, depthrenderbuffer, 0); } if (createInfo.numColorTargets > 0) glDrawBuffers(createInfo.numColorTargets, DrawBuffers); else glDrawBuffer(GL_NONE); if (glCheckFramebufferStatus(GL_FRAMEBUFFER) != GL_FRAMEBUFFER_COMPLETE) std::cout << "Framebuffer Incomplete\n"; glBindFramebuffer(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, 0); width = createInfo.width; height = createInfo.height; } // ... // FBO Creation FramebufferCreateInfo gbufferCI; gbufferCI.colorFormats = gbufferCFs.data(); gbufferCI.depthFormat = FORMAT_DEPTH_32; gbufferCI.numColorTargets = gbufferCFs.size(); gbufferCI.width = engine.settings.resolutionX; gbufferCI.height = engine.settings.resolutionY; gbufferCI.renderPass = nullptr; gbuffer = graphicsWrapper->CreateFramebuffer(gbufferCI); // Bind glBindFramebuffer(GL_DRAW_FRAMEBUFFER, fbo); // Draw here... // Bind to textures glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE0); glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, textures[0]); glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE1); glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, textures[1]); glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE2); glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, textures[2]); glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE3); glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, depthrenderbuffer); Here is an extract of my code. I can't think of anything else to include. I've really been butting my head into a wall trying to think of a reason but I can think of none and all my research yields nothing. Thanks in advance!

      Hi everyone, I've shared my 2D Game Engine source code. It's the result of 4 years working on it (and I still continue improving features ) and I want to share with the community. You can see some videos on youtube and some demo gifs on my twitter account.
      This Engine has been developed as End-of-Degree Project and it is coded in Javascript, WebGL and GLSL. The engine is written from scratch.
      This is not a professional engine but it's for learning purposes, so anyone can review the code an learn basis about graphics, physics or game engine architecture. Source code on this GitHub repository.
      I'm available for a good conversation about Game Engine / Graphics Programming

      I would like to introduce the first version of my physically based camera rendering library, written in C++, called PhysiCam.
      Physicam is an open source OpenGL C++ library, which provides physically based camera rendering and parameters. It is based on OpenGL and designed to be used as either static library or dynamic library and can be integrated in existing applications.
       
      The following features are implemented:
      Physically based sensor and focal length calculation Autoexposure Manual exposure Lense distortion Bloom (influenced by ISO, Shutter Speed, Sensor type etc.) Bokeh (influenced by Aperture, Sensor type and focal length) Tonemapping  
      You can find the repository at https://github.com/0x2A/physicam
       
      I would be happy about feedback, suggestions or contributions.
