I'm having some trouble getting the following Cg fragment program to compile:
struct Input {
	float3 position		: TEXCOORD0;
	float3 normal		: TEXCOORD1;
	float2 texCoord		: TEXCOORD2;
	float3 tangent		: TEXCOORD3;
	float3 binormal		: TEXCOORD4;

// textures
uniform sampler2D diffuseMap		: TEXUNIT0;
uniform sampler2D specularMap		: TEXUNIT1;
uniform sampler2D bumpMap			: TEXUNIT2;
uniform sampler2D reflectMap		: TEXUNIT3;
uniform samplerCUBE environmentMap	: TEXUNIT4;

// inverse view matrix
uniform float3x4 inverseViewMatrix;

// material properties
uniform float mtlBumpMode;		// 0 = none, 1 = normal, 2 = parallax
uniform float mtlSpecMode;		// 0 = constant, 1 = map
uniform float mtlReflectMode;	// 0 = none, 1 = constant, 2 = map
uniform float3 mtlEmissive;
uniform float3 mtlAmbient;
uniform float4 mtlDiffuse;
uniform float4 mtlSpecularShininess; // rgb = specular, a = shininess
uniform float mtlReflectivity;

// scene properties
uniform float4 sceneFog; // rgb = color, a = density
uniform float3 sceneAmbient;

// light properties
static const int MAX_LIGHTS = 8;
uniform float lightCount;
uniform float lightType[MAX_LIGHTS]; // 0 = directional, 1 = spot
uniform float3 lightPosition[MAX_LIGHTS]; // doubles as direction for directional lights
uniform float3 lightAttenuation[MAX_LIGHTS]; // usage: x + y*D + z*D^2
uniform float3 lightAmbient[MAX_LIGHTS];
uniform float3 lightDiffuseSpecular[MAX_LIGHTS]; // diffuse and specular color

float3 rgbToXyz( float3 rgb ) {
	return rgb * 2.0f - 1.0f;

void main( in Input input, out float4 color : COLOR ) {
	input.normal = normalize( input.normal );

	// normal or parallax mapping
	if (mtlBumpMode > 0.0f) {
		// normalize these if needed
		input.tangent = normalize( input.tangent );
		input.binormal = normalize( input.binormal );

		// parallax mapping
		if (mtlBumpMode == 2.0f) {
			// apply parallax mapping
			float bumpScale = 0.05f;
			float fDepth = 0.0f;
			float2 vHalfOffset = float2( 0.0f, 0.0f );
			float2 eyeVector = float2( dot( input.position, input.tangent ),
									   dot( input.position, input.binormal ) );
			for (int i = 0; i < 3; ++i) {
				fDepth = (fDepth + (1.0f - tex2D( bumpMap, input.texCoord + vHalfOffset ).a)) * 0.5f;
				vHalfOffset = normalize( eyeVector ).xy * fDepth * bumpScale;
			input.texCoord += vHalfOffset;

		// apply normal mapping by sampling our bump map and multiplying by tbn
		float3 bump = rgbToXyz( tex2D( bumpMap, input.texCoord ).rgb );
		input.normal = normalize( input.tangent * bump.x +
								  input.binormal * bump.y +
								  input.normal * bump.z );

	// declare a float3 to hold our diffuse color
	float3 diffuse;

	// apply reflection mapping
	if (mtlReflectMode == 1.0f) {
		// get the reflection vector in eye space
		// multiply it by inverse view matrix to get it into world space
		float3 reflectCoord = reflect( input.position, input.normal );
		reflectCoord = mul( inverseViewMatrix, float4( reflectCoord, 0.0f ) ).xyz;
		// lerp based on reflectivity constant
		diffuse = lerp( tex2D( diffuseMap, input.texCoord ).rgb,
						texCUBE( environmentMap, reflectCoord ).rgb,
						mtlReflectivity );
	} else if (mtlReflectMode == 2.0f) {
		// get the reflection vector in eye space
		// multiply it by inverse view matrix to get it into world space
		float3 reflectCoord = reflect( input.position, input.normal );
		reflectCoord = mul( inverseViewMatrix, float4( reflectCoord, 0.0f ) ).xyz;
		// lerp based on sampled reflection map
		diffuse = lerp( tex2D( diffuseMap, input.texCoord ).rgb,
						texCUBE( environmentMap, reflectCoord ).rgb,
						tex2D( reflectMap, input.texCoord ).r );
	} else
		diffuse = tex2D( diffuseMap, input.texCoord ).rgb;

	// multiply diffuse by material diffuse
	diffuse *= mtlDiffuse.rgb;

	// declare a float4 to hold our specular color
	float4 specular;

	if (mtlSpecMode == 0.0f)
		specular = mtlSpecularShininess;
		specular = tex2D( specularMap, input.texCoord ).rgba;

	// now we compute lighting

	float3 intensity = mtlEmissive + mtlAmbient*sceneAmbient;

	float3 eyeDir = -normalize( input.position );
	for (int i = 0; i < lightCount && i < MAX_LIGHTS; ++i) {
		// for each light
		// first compute direction and attenuation
		float3 lightDir;
		float attenuation;
		if (lightType == 0) {
			// directional light
			lightDir = -lightPosition;
			attenuation = 1.0f;
		} else {
			// point light
			lightDir = lightPosition - input.position;
			float dist = length( lightDir );
			lightDir /= dist;
			attenuation = 1.0f/(lightAttenuation.x +
								lightAttenuation.y * dist +
								lightAttenuation.z * dist * dist);
		// compute the half vector for specularity
		float3 halfVec = normalize( (lightDir + eyeDir) * 0.5f );

		// compute N.L and N.H
		float nDotL = saturate( dot( input.normal, lightDir ) );
		float nDotH = saturate( dot( input.normal, halfVec ) );

		// determine the amount to increase the intensity by
		// we add ambient into this term because each light can contribute ambiently,
		// but only when an object is near the light; it attenuates like diffuse and specular
		// if overall ambient is wanted, use scene ambient
		float3 increase = mtlAmbient*lightAmbient +
						  (diffuse*nDotL + specular.rgb*pow( nDotH, specular.a )*saturate( nDotL*5.0f )) * lightDiffuseSpecular;

		// weight by attenuation
		intensity += attenuation * increase;

	// compute the fog amount: e^-(density * z)
	float fogAmount = saturate( pow( 2.71828183f, -sceneFog.a * input.position.z ) );

	// finally, compute fragment color
	color = float4( lerp( intensity, sceneFog.rgb, fogAmount ), mtlDiffuse.a );

The errors are in the for loop for the lights where I try to access arrays of light parameters. In OpenGL NV30 Fragment Program, I'm getting: error C5043: profile requires index expression to be compile-time constant and error C5013: profile does not support "for" statements and "for" could not be unrolled. In OpenGL NV40 Fragment Program, I'm getting: error C6013: Only arrays of texcoords may be indexed in this profile, and only with a loop index variable What I'm trying to do is use static branching to loop through the arrays of light properties, but it appears that this doesn't work. Is there another way to do this? (Do I manually have to unroll the loop? I put a upper bound of MAX_LIGHTS on the loop, so I'd think that would fix issues, but apparently not...) EDIT: Well, it compiles if I do:
for (int i = 0; i < MAX_LIGHTS; ++i) {
	if (i >= lightCount)

Which I believe is still static branching. I can't test it on my current computer (older graphics card), but is this a good approach to take in terms of efficiency? If I do this, the loop is required to repeat the max number of times.

You could do

for (int i = 0; i < lightCount; ++i)

or using break makes more sense than using continue.
for (int i = 0; i < MAX_LIGHTS; ++i)
if (i >= lightCount)

It should be alright since all fragments will execute the same number of loops.

      Good Evening,
      I want to make a 2D game which involves displaying some debug information. Especially for collision, enemy sights and so on ...
      First of I was thinking about all those shapes which I need will need for debugging purposes: circles, rectangles, lines, polygons.
      I am really stucked right now because of the fundamental question:
      Where do I store my vertices positions for each line (object)? Currently I am not using a model matrix because I am using orthographic projection and set the final position within the VBO. That means that if I add a new line I would have to expand the "points" array and re-upload (recall glBufferData) it every time. The other method would be to use a model matrix and a fixed vbo for a line but it would be also messy to exactly create a line from (0,0) to (100,20) calculating the rotation and scale to make it fit.
      If I proceed with option 1 "updating the array each frame" I was thinking of having 4 draw calls every frame for the lines vao, polygons vao and so on. 
      In addition to that I am planning to use some sort of ECS based architecture. So the other question would be:
      Should I treat those debug objects as entities/components?
      For me it would make sense to treat them as entities but that's creates a new issue with the previous array approach because it would have for example a transform and render component. A special render component for debug objects (no texture etc) ... For me the transform component is also just a matrix but how would I then define a line?
      Treating them as components would'nt be a good idea in my eyes because then I would always need an entity. Well entity is just an id !? So maybe its a component?

      Hello. I am coding a small thingy in my spare time. All i want to achieve is to load a heightmap (as the lowest possible walking terrain), some static meshes (elements of the environment) and a dynamic character (meaning i can move, collide with heightmap/static meshes and hold a varying item in a hand ). Got a bunch of questions, or rather problems i can't find solution to myself. Nearly all are deal with graphics/gpu, not the coding part. My c++ is on high enough level.
      Let's go:
      Heightmap - i obviously want it to be textured, size is hardcoded to 256x256 squares. I can't have one huge texture stretched over entire terrain cause every pixel would be enormous. Thats why i decided to use 2 specified textures. First will be a tileset consisting of 16 square tiles (u v range from 0 to 0.25 for first tile and so on) and second a 256x256 buffer with 0-15 value representing index of the tile from tileset for every heigtmap square. Problem is, how do i blend the edges nicely and make some computationally cheap changes so its not obvious there are only 16 tiles? Is it possible to generate such terrain with some existing program?
      Collisions - i want to use bounding sphere and aabb. But should i store them for a model or entity instance? Meaning i have 20 same trees spawned using the same tree model, but every entity got its own transformation (position, scale etc). Storing collision component per instance grats faster access + is precalculated and transformed (takes additional memory, but who cares?), so i stick with this, right? What should i do if object is dynamically rotated? The aabb is no longer aligned and calculating per vertex min/max everytime object rotates/scales is pretty expensive, right?
      Drawing aabb - problem similar to above (storing aabb data per instance or model). This time in my opinion per model is enough since every instance also does not have own vertex buffer but uses the shared one (so 20 trees share reference to one tree model). So rendering aabb is about taking the model's aabb, transforming with instance matrix and voila. What about aabb vertex buffer (this is more of a cosmetic question, just curious, bumped onto it in time of writing this). Is it better to make it as 8 points and index buffer (12 lines), or only 2 vertices with min/max x/y/z and having the shaders dynamically generate 6 other vertices and draw the box? Or maybe there should be just ONE 1x1x1 cube box template moved/scaled per entity?
      What if one model got a diffuse texture and a normal map, and other has only diffuse? Should i pass some bool flag to shader with that info, or just assume that my game supports only diffuse maps without fancy stuff?
      There were several more but i forgot/solved them at time of writing
      Thanks in advance

      Hi All,
      I'm reading the tutorials from learnOpengl site (nice site) and I'm having a question on the camera (https://learnopengl.com/Getting-started/Camera).
      I always saw the camera being manipulated with the lookat, but in tutorial I saw the camera being changed through the MVP arrays, which do not seem to be camera, but rather the scene that changes:
      Vertex Shader:
      #version 330 core layout (location = 0) in vec3 aPos; layout (location = 1) in vec2 aTexCoord; out vec2 TexCoord; uniform mat4 model; uniform mat4 view; uniform mat4 projection; void main() { gl_Position = projection * view * model * vec4(aPos, 1.0f); TexCoord = vec2(aTexCoord.x, aTexCoord.y); } then, the matrix manipulated:
      ..... glm::mat4 projection = glm::perspective(glm::radians(fov), (float)SCR_WIDTH / (float)SCR_HEIGHT, 0.1f, 100.0f); ourShader.setMat4("projection", projection); .... glm::mat4 view = glm::lookAt(cameraPos, cameraPos + cameraFront, cameraUp); ourShader.setMat4("view", view); .... model = glm::rotate(model, glm::radians(angle), glm::vec3(1.0f, 0.3f, 0.5f)); ourShader.setMat4("model", model);  
      So, some doubts:
      - Why use it like that?
      - Is it okay to manipulate the camera that way?
      -in this way, are not the vertex's positions that changes instead of the camera?
      - I need to pass MVP to all shaders of object in my scenes ?
      What it seems, is that the camera stands still and the scenery that changes...
      it's right?
      Thank you

      Sampling a floating point texture where the alpha channel holds 4-bytes of packed data into the float. I don't know how to cast the raw memory to treat it as an integer so I can perform bit-shifting operations.

      int rgbValue = int(textureSample.w);//4 bytes of data packed as color
      // algorithm might not be correct and endianness might need switching.
      vec3 extractedData = vec3(  rgbValue & 0xFF000000,  (rgbValue << 8) & 0xFF000000, (rgbValue << 16) & 0xFF000000);
      extractedData /= 255.0f;

      While writing a simple renderer using OpenGL, I faced an issue with the glGetUniformLocation function. For some reason, the location is coming to be -1.
      Anyone has any idea .. what should I do?
