OpenGL No cameras in OpenGL..... :(

Recommended Posts

OpenGL has no camera functions and its pipeline is sucky...

I find it harder than DirectX/more annoying as well...

How do you create a camera for OpenGL though? I know it doesn't really have any by default, except for the stupid, gay one that shows gay primitives and shit on the screen(nothing impressive to anyone).

I know you are getting bored because your previous attempts at more subtle trolling did not produce the entertaining results you hoped for, but isn't this a bit too obvious?

No, bro, I'm being serious...

I hate DirectX just as bad as the next bitch, but OpenGL has much easier functions even though, yeah, the lack of cameras and gay pipeline is a no-go...

What else do I have?

Allegro is shit.

I know when I see a troll going bored. The sad attempt at creating multiple flame war threats. The shift to insulting language, both in this thread and all others you posted in today. Normally I would not even bother to respond but the mods are being slow this morning and I wanted to prevent some poor guy who does not immediately recognize the signs to actually ignite the oil trail.

The projection matrix is used to define the field-of-view of the camera, by loading a perspective matrix into it. You can use the [font="Lucida Console"][url="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd368675%28v=vs.85%29.aspx"]gluPerspective[/url][/font] function to make one of these matrices (after calling [url="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd373949%28VS.85%29.aspx"][font="Lucida Console"]glMatrixMode[/font][/url][font="Lucida Console"](GL_PROJECTION)[/font] ). To actual move the camera, you've got to use the model-view matrix (which moves the model/geometry, as well as the view/camera). To move the view around you can use [font="Lucida Console"][url="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee872066%28v=VS.85%29.aspx"]glTranslate[/url][/font] / [font="Lucida Console"][url="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd368577%28VS.85%29.aspx"]glRotate[/url][/font] (after calling [url="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd373949%28VS.85%29.aspx"][font="Lucida Console"]glMatrixMode[/font][/url][font="Lucida Console"](GL_MODELVIEW)[/font] ).

GLUT is fucking annoying and pathetic....

Plus, you have to download it AND OpenGL...

Too many files I can't risk that much disk space flooding, sorry(I also have low RAM, only 1 GB).

That method is just so UNFITTING....Shame on OpenGL....

Needing add-ons to compare to DirectX. Hell this, I'm getting back to DirectX programming.

      Before using void glBindImageTexture(    GLuint unit, GLuint texture, GLint level, GLboolean layered, GLint layer, GLenum access, GLenum format), does need to make sure that texture is completeness.

      hi guys, 
      are there any books, link online or any other resources that discusses on how to build special effects such as magic, lightning, etc. in OpenGL? i mean, yeah most of them are using particles but im looking for resources specifically on how to manipulate the particles to look like an effect that can be use for games,. i did fire particle before, and I want to learn how to do the other 'magic' as well.
      Like are there one book or link(cant find in google) that atleast featured how to make different particle effects in OpenGL (or DirectX)? If there is no one stop shop for it, maybe ill just look for some tips on how to make a particle engine that is flexible enough to enable me to design different effects/magic 
      let me know if you guys have recommendations.
      Thank you in advance!

      How do we rotate the camera around x axis 360 degrees, without having the strange effect as in my video below? 
      Mine behaves exactly the same way spherical coordinates would, I'm using euler angles.
      Tried googling, but couldn't find a proper answer, guessing I don't know what exactly to google for, googled 'rotate 360 around x axis', got no proper answers.

      The video shows the difference between blender and my rotation:

      I've had a Google around for this but haven't yet found some solid advice. There is a lot of "it depends", but I'm not sure on what.
      My question is what's a good rule of thumb to follow when it comes to creating/using VBOs & VAOs? As in, when should I use multiple or when should I not? My understanding so far is that if I need a new VBO, then I need a new VAO. So when it comes to rendering multiple objects I can either:
      * make lots of VAO/VBO pairs and flip through them to render different objects, or
      * make one big VBO and jump around its memory to render different objects. 
      I also understand that if I need to render objects with different vertex attributes, then a new VAO is necessary in this case.
      If that "it depends" really is quite variable, what's best for a beginner with OpenGL, assuming that better approaches can be learnt later with better understanding?

      Hello all,
       
      On my Windows 7 x64 machine I wrote the code below on VS 2017 and ran it.
      #include <glad/glad.h>  #include <GLFW/glfw3.h> #include <std_lib_facilities_4.h> using namespace std; void framebuffer_size_callback(GLFWwindow* window , int width, int height) {     glViewport(0, 0, width, height); } //****************************** void processInput(GLFWwindow* window) {     if (glfwGetKey(window, GLFW_KEY_ESCAPE) == GLFW_PRESS)         glfwSetWindowShouldClose(window, true); } //********************************* int main() {     glfwInit();     glfwWindowHint(GLFW_CONTEXT_VERSION_MAJOR, 3);     glfwWindowHint(GLFW_CONTEXT_VERSION_MINOR, 3);     glfwWindowHint(GLFW_OPENGL_PROFILE, GLFW_OPENGL_CORE_PROFILE);     //glfwWindowHint(GLFW_OPENGL_FORWARD_COMPAT, GL_TRUE);     GLFWwindow* window = glfwCreateWindow(800, 600, "LearnOpenGL", nullptr, nullptr);     if (window == nullptr)     {         cout << "Failed to create GLFW window" << endl;         glfwTerminate();         return -1;     }     glfwMakeContextCurrent(window);     if (!gladLoadGLLoader((GLADloadproc)glfwGetProcAddress))     {         cout << "Failed to initialize GLAD" << endl;         return -1;     }     glViewport(0, 0, 600, 480);     glfwSetFramebufferSizeCallback(window, framebuffer_size_callback);     glClearColor(0.2f, 0.3f, 0.3f, 1.0f);     glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT);     while (!glfwWindowShouldClose(window))     {         processInput(window);         glfwSwapBuffers(window);         glfwPollEvents();     }     glfwTerminate();     return 0; }  
      The result should be a fixed dark green-blueish color as the end of here. But the color of my window turns from black to green-blueish repeatedly in high speed! I thought it might be a problem with my Graphics card driver but I've updated it and it's: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti.
      What is the problem and how to solve it please?
