'Ello. I'm both new to this site and to OpenGL, but I come here in hopes of solving a problem I've been having. My current project is a first person something, and I've been doing pretty well so far, experimenting and concentrating on making things work, but one massive problem has been bothering me. Every vertical quad that I draw and texture ends up looking like nothing more than a series of lines, as if the texture went from 1d to 2d. Top and bottom textures are unaffected, but I really would like to solve this issue. I've included a picture below to describe my problem. http://i69.photobucket.com/albums/i58/bahamut1993/Screeny.png

The texture coordinates for the vertical walls are just not what they should be. Impossible to point out anything specific though, as you haven't shown anything but the final result, when the means to get there is where the problem actually is.

Isolate the problem by looking at the coordinates of a single quad that appears wrong.

Thanks for the prompt response. I looked at my code, and nothing seems wrong.

I define all the points of a rectangular volume in the initialization of the program...


Floor.Coordinates[0][0]=-20;Floor.Coordinates[0][1]=-20;Floor.Coordinates[0][2]=-14;
Floor.Coordinates[1][0]=20;Floor.Coordinates[1][1]=-20;Floor.Coordinates[1][2]=-14;
Floor.Coordinates[2][0]=20;Floor.Coordinates[2][1]=20;Floor.Coordinates[2][2]=-14;
Floor.Coordinates[3][0]=-20;Floor.Coordinates[3][1]=20;Floor.Coordinates[3][2]=-14;
Floor.Coordinates[4][0]=-20;Floor.Coordinates[4][1]=-20;Floor.Coordinates[4][2]=-15;
Floor.Coordinates[5][0]=20;Floor.Coordinates[5][1]=-20;Floor.Coordinates[5][2]=-15;
Floor.Coordinates[6][0]=20;Floor.Coordinates[6][1]=20;Floor.Coordinates[6][2]=-15;
Floor.Coordinates[7][0]=-20;Floor.Coordinates[7][1]=20;Floor.Coordinates[7][2]=-15;
Floor.BBox.min.x=-20;Floor.BBox.min.y=-20;Floor.BBox.min.z=-10.5;
Floor.BBox.max.x=20;Floor.BBox.max.y=20;Floor.BBox.max.z=-14;


Then load the texture, using NeHe's LoadBitmap function. Then, in the display function, I call functions to automatically draw quads based on the coordinates.


DrawRectVolume2(Wall1,CeilingTexture2);
DrawRectVolume2(Wall2,CeilingTexture2);
DrawRectVolume2(Wall3,CeilingTexture2);
DrawRectVolume2(Wall4,GroundTexture);
DrawRectVolume(Ceiling,CeilingTexture2);
DrawRectVolume(Floor,GroundTexture);
for (int i=0;i<Walls.size();i++)
DrawRectVolume2(Walls[i],GroundTexture);


These are the functions called by those lines:


void DrawQuad(RectVolume Volume,int C1, int C2, int C3, int C4,GLuint Texture)
{
glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, Texture);
glBegin( GL_QUADS );
glTexCoord3f(Volume.Coordinates[C1][0],Volume.Coordinates[C1][1],Volume.Coordinates[C1][2]);
glVertex3f(Volume.Coordinates[C1][0],Volume.Coordinates[C1][1],Volume.Coordinates[C1][2]);
glTexCoord3f(Volume.Coordinates[C2][0],Volume.Coordinates[C2][1],Volume.Coordinates[C2][2]);
glVertex3f(Volume.Coordinates[C2][0],Volume.Coordinates[C2][1],Volume.Coordinates[C2][2]);
glTexCoord3f(Volume.Coordinates[C3][0],Volume.Coordinates[C3][1],Volume.Coordinates[C3][2]);
glVertex3f(Volume.Coordinates[C3][0],Volume.Coordinates[C3][1],Volume.Coordinates[C3][2]);
glTexCoord3f(Volume.Coordinates[C4][0],Volume.Coordinates[C4][1],Volume.Coordinates[C4][2]);
glVertex3f(Volume.Coordinates[C4][0],Volume.Coordinates[C4][1],Volume.Coordinates[C4][2]);
glEnd();
}

void DrawRectVolume(RectVolume Volume,GLuint Texture)
{
DrawQuad(Volume,0,1,5,4,Texture);
DrawQuad(Volume,1,2,6,5,Texture);
DrawQuad(Volume,2,3,7,6,Texture);
DrawQuad(Volume,3,0,4,7,Texture);
DrawQuad(Volume,0,1,2,3,Texture);
DrawQuad(Volume,4,5,6,7,Texture);
}

void DrawRectVolume2(RectVolume Volume,GLuint Texture)
{
DrawQuad(Volume,0,1,2,3,Texture);
DrawQuad(Volume,4,5,6,7,Texture);
DrawQuad(Volume,0,1,5,4,Texture);
DrawQuad(Volume,1,2,6,5,Texture);
DrawQuad(Volume,2,3,7,6,Texture);
DrawQuad(Volume,3,0,4,7,Texture);
}


Someone more experienced with OpenGL than me has been working with me for a while now, and we can't figure out the problem.

You cannot, in general, have the same values for position and texture coordinates. Texture coordinates have nothing to do with position in world space (in which you specify your positions), but specifies what part of the texture goes where on the quad. Therefore, texture coordinates are specified in texture space, which range from 0 at the bottom/left to 1 at the top/right.

I suggest you stick to a single quad only and try to explore the texture coordinates. See what happens when you change the corners of the quad, and what happens when you change the texture coordinates. Then you will see that they are not related, as in your current code.

Try this simple code to begin with, and play with the values (these values should be reasonable, based on your code, but adjust to make the quad visible if not).

glTexCoord2f(0, 0); glVertex3f(-10, -10, 0);
glTexCoord2f(1, 0); glVertex3f( 10, -10, 0);
glTexCoord2f(1, 1); glVertex3f( 10, 10, 0);
glTexCoord2f(0, 1); glVertex3f(-10, 10, 0);

It's all starting to make sense to me now. Those few lines of code helped me out a great deal, and I believe I'm going to solve my problem now. Thank you.

      Does sync be needed to read texture content after access texture image in compute shader?
      My simple code is as below,
      glUseProgram(program.get());
      glBindImageTexture(0, texture[0], 0, GL_FALSE, 3, GL_READ_ONLY, GL_R32UI);
      glBindImageTexture(1, texture[1], 0, GL_FALSE, 4, GL_WRITE_ONLY, GL_R32UI);
      glDispatchCompute(1, 1, 1);
      // Does sync be needed here?
      glUseProgram(0);
      glBindFramebuffer(GL_READ_FRAMEBUFFER, framebuffer);
      glFramebufferTexture2D(GL_READ_FRAMEBUFFER, GL_COLOR_ATTACHMENT0,
                                     GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_POSITIVE_X + face, texture[1], 0);
      glReadPixels(0, 0, kWidth, kHeight, GL_RED_INTEGER, GL_UNSIGNED_INT, outputValues);
       
      Compute shader is very simple, imageLoad content from texture[0], and imageStore content to texture[1]. Does need to sync after dispatchCompute?

      My question: is it possible to transform multiple angular velocities so that they can be reinserted as one? My research is below:
      // This works quat quaternion1 = GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector1); quat quaternion2 = GEMultiplyQuaternions(quaternion1, GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector2)); quat quaternion3 = GEMultiplyQuaternions(quaternion2, GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector3)); glMultMatrixf(GEMat4FromQuaternion(quaternion3).array); // The first two work fine but not the third. Why? quat quaternion1 = GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector1); vec3 vector1 = GETransformQuaternionAndVector(quaternion1, angularVelocity1); quat quaternion2 = GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector2); vec3 vector2 = GETransformQuaternionAndVector(quaternion2, angularVelocity2); // This doesn't work //quat quaternion3 = GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector3); //vec3 vector3 = GETransformQuaternionAndVector(quaternion3, angularVelocity3); vec3 angleVelocity = GEAddVectors(vector1, vector2); // Does not work: vec3 angleVelocity = GEAddVectors(vector1, GEAddVectors(vector2, vector3)); static vec3 angleRadiansVector; vec3 angularAcceleration = GESetVector(0.0, 0.0, 0.0); // Sending it through one angular velocity later in my motion engine angleVelocity = GEAddVectors(angleVelocity, GEMultiplyVectorAndScalar(angularAcceleration, timeStep)); angleRadiansVector = GEAddVectors(angleRadiansVector, GEMultiplyVectorAndScalar(angleVelocity, timeStep)); glMultMatrixf(GEMat4FromEulerAngle(angleRadiansVector).array); Also how do I combine multiple angularAcceleration variables? Is there an easier way to transform the angular values?

      I have this code below in both my vertex and fragment shader, however when I request glGetUniformLocation("Lights[0].diffuse") or "Lights[0].attenuation", it returns -1. It will only give me a valid uniform location if I actually use the diffuse/attenuation variables in the VERTEX shader. Because I use position in the vertex shader, it always returns a valid uniform location. I've read that I can share uniforms across both vertex and fragment, but I'm confused what this is even compiling to if this is the case.
       
      #define NUM_LIGHTS 2
      struct Light
      {
          vec3 position;
          vec3 diffuse;
          float attenuation;
      };
      uniform Light Lights[NUM_LIGHTS];

      Hello,
      I have a Bachelor project on topic "Implenet 3D Boid's algorithm in OpenGL". All OpenGL issues works fine for me, all rendering etc. But when I started implement the boid's algorithm it was getting worse and worse. I read article (http://natureofcode.com/book/chapter-6-autonomous-agents/) inspirate from another code (here: https://github.com/jyanar/Boids/tree/master/src) but it still doesn't work like in tutorials and videos. For example the main problem: when I apply Cohesion (one of three main laws of boids) it makes some "cycling knot". Second, when some flock touch to another it scary change the coordination or respawn in origin (x: 0, y:0. z:0). Just some streng things. 
      I followed many tutorials, change a try everything but it isn't so smooth, without lags like in another videos. I really need your help. 
      My code (optimalizing branch): https://github.com/pr033r/BachelorProject/tree/Optimalizing
      Exe file (if you want to look) and models folder (for those who will download the sources):

      Thanks for any help...

      I am currently trying to implement shadow mapping into my project , but although i can render my depth map to the screen and it looks okay , when i sample it with shadowCoords there is no shadow.
      Here is my light space matrix calculation
      mat4x4 lightViewMatrix; vec3 sun_pos = {SUN_OFFSET * the_sun->direction[0], SUN_OFFSET * the_sun->direction[1], SUN_OFFSET * the_sun->direction[2]}; mat4x4_look_at(lightViewMatrix,sun_pos,player->pos,up); mat4x4_mul(lightSpaceMatrix,lightProjMatrix,lightViewMatrix); I will tweak the values for the size and frustum of the shadow map, but for now i just want to draw shadows around the player position
      the_sun->direction is a normalized vector so i multiply it by a constant to get the position.
      player->pos is the camera position in world space
      the light projection matrix is calculated like this:
      mat4x4_ortho(lightProjMatrix,-SHADOW_FAR,SHADOW_FAR,-SHADOW_FAR,SHADOW_FAR,NEAR,SHADOW_FAR); Shadow vertex shader:
      uniform mat4 light_space_matrix; void main() { gl_Position = light_space_matrix * transfMatrix * vec4(position, 1.0f); } Shadow fragment shader:
      out float fragDepth; void main() { fragDepth = gl_FragCoord.z; } I am using deferred rendering so i have all my world positions in the g_positions buffer
      My shadow calculation in the deferred fragment shader:
      float get_shadow_fac(vec4 light_space_pos) { vec3 shadow_coords = light_space_pos.xyz / light_space_pos.w; shadow_coords = shadow_coords * 0.5 + 0.5; float closest_depth = texture(shadow_map, shadow_coords.xy).r; float current_depth = shadow_coords.z; float shadow_fac = 1.0; if(closest_depth < current_depth) shadow_fac = 0.5; return shadow_fac; } I call the function like this:
      get_shadow_fac(light_space_matrix * vec4(position,1.0)); Where position is the value i got from sampling the g_position buffer
      Here is my depth texture (i know it will produce low quality shadows but i just want to get it working for now):
      sorry because of the compression , the black smudges are trees ... https://i.stack.imgur.com/T43aK.jpg
      EDIT: Depth texture attachment:
      glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0,GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT24,fbo->width,fbo->height,0,GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT,GL_FLOAT,NULL); glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_LINEAR); glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_LINEAR); glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_S, GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE); glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_T, GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE); glFramebufferTexture2D(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, GL_DEPTH_ATTACHMENT, GL_TEXTURE_2D, fbo->depthTexture, 0);
