I've been cleaning up my code a bit making sure that if I were to switch graphics APIs it wouldn't be a huge deal. So I decided to switch to SDL for context creation and input since I was using GLFW.

Unfortunately I experienced a severe performance degradation when using SDL. FPS dropped from 180-200 (GLFW) to 40-70 (SDL) and the framerate is choppy and less continuous. I'm not too familiar with OpenGL context management (hence why I'm using GLFW and SDL) and I found little information regarding performance between SDL and GLFW so I decided to ask here.

Here is the GLFW code:


if (!glfwOpenWindow(width, height, 8, 8, 8, 8, bytesPerPixel * 8, 0,
fullscreen ? GLFW_FULLSCREEN : GLFW_WINDOW)) {
throw Exception("Failed to create window.");
}

glfwDisable(GLFW_MOUSE_CURSOR);

glfwSetWindowTitle(getName().c_str());

glfwSetKeyCallback(keyCallback);
glfwSetMousePosCallback(mousePosCallback);
glfwSetMouseButtonCallback(mouseButtonCallback);

setMouseOrigin(Vector<2, int>(width/2, height/2));
if (verticleSync) {
glfwSwapInterval(1);
} else {
glfwSwapInterval(0);
}




And the SDL code:


int videoFlags;
const SDL_VideoInfo *videoInfo;

videoInfo = SDL_GetVideoInfo();

if (!videoInfo) {
String error(SDL_GetError());
SDL_Quit();

throw Exception("Failed: " + error);
}

videoFlags = SDL_OPENGL;
videoFlags |= SDL_GL_DOUBLEBUFFER;
videoFlags |= SDL_HWPALETTE;

SDL_GL_SetAttribute( SDL_GL_RED_SIZE, 8 );
SDL_GL_SetAttribute( SDL_GL_GREEN_SIZE, 8 );
SDL_GL_SetAttribute( SDL_GL_BLUE_SIZE, 8 );
SDL_GL_SetAttribute( SDL_GL_DEPTH_SIZE, 16 );
SDL_GL_SetAttribute( SDL_GL_STENCIL_SIZE, 0 );
SDL_GL_SetAttribute( SDL_GL_DOUBLEBUFFER, 1 );

if (videoInfo->hw_available) {
videoFlags |= SDL_HWSURFACE;
} else {
videoFlags |= SDL_SWSURFACE;
}

if (videoInfo->blit_hw) {
videoFlags |= SDL_HWACCEL;
}

SDL_GL_SetAttribute(SDL_GL_DOUBLEBUFFER, 1);

if (!SDL_SetVideoMode(width, height, bytesPerPixel * 8, videoFlags)) {
String error(SDL_GetError());
SDL_Quit();

throw Exception("Failed: " + error);
}

SDL_ShowCursor(0);




Note that my renderer uses deferred shading and therefore heavily relies on frame buffer objects. I am currently developing on Windows 7. Any help is appreciated.

are you relying on the libraries' own 2D drawing stuff?

if so performance penalty might be because SDL's internal 2D drawing doesn't rely on OpenGL.

Can you post a minimal program reproducing this behaviour?

Your SDL code is quite unusual, when dealing with OpenGL you generally just pass SDL_OPENGL (possibly with SDL_FULLSCREEN) to SDL_SetVideoMode(). Most of the other flags you are setting probably shouldn't be used.

My engine isnt using FBO's yet, but when I did a quick speedtest before starting I found SDL to be MUCH faster that GLFW

You could try taking a look at your SDL event snippet of your code. When I first started using SDL, I made the mistake of not specifying all the events that I wanted to have actually be taken for the program. Instead, it checked all events, keyboard, mouse, OS specific, joypad, etc. Optimizing the code for only the events I wanted, it reduced resource usage dramatically.

Thanks for the quick replies everyone.

No.

That is quite impossible as my engine is fairly complex.

I tried getting rid of everything else and just calling SDL_SetVideoMode with SDL_OPENGL and saw no observable difference. At least the code is considerably shorter.

This might be on the right track. I added an event filter and got smoother framerate but it is still hovering around 70 which is concerning. Here is my event code. It is just translating keyboard and mouse events to internally represented events and put into the queue.



int filter(SDL_Event* event) {
switch(event->type) {
case SDL_KEYDOWN:
case SDL_KEYUP:
case SDL_MOUSEMOTION:
case SDL_MOUSEBUTTONDOWN:
case SDL_MOUSEBUTTONUP:
case SDL_QUIT:
return 1;
default:
return 0;
}
}

SDL_SetEventFilter((SDL_EventFilter)&filter); // Called on window creation.


void SDLWindow::swapBuffers() {
SDL_GL_SwapBuffers();

SDL_Event event;
Vector<2, int> mouseOrigin = getMouseOrigin();

while (SDL_PollEvent(&event)) {
switch(event.type) {
case SDL_KEYDOWN:
pushInputEvent(InputEvent(InputEventType::KeyDown, mouseOrigin, (Key::Enum)(int)event.key.keysym.sym));
break;
case SDL_KEYUP:
pushInputEvent(InputEvent(InputEventType::KeyUp, mouseOrigin, (Key::Enum)(int)event.key.keysym.sym));
break;
case SDL_MOUSEMOTION:
pushInputEvent(InputEvent(InputEventType::MouseMove, Vector<2, int>((int)event.motion.x, (int)event.motion.y)));
break;
case SDL_MOUSEBUTTONDOWN:
pushInputEvent(InputEvent(InputEventType::KeyDown, mouseOrigin, (Key::Enum)(int)event.button.button));
break;
case SDL_MOUSEBUTTONUP:
pushInputEvent(InputEvent(InputEventType::KeyUp, mouseOrigin, (Key::Enum)(int)event.button.button));
break;
case SDL_QUIT:
break;
default:
break;
}
}
}

Not quite sure if this will work, but you could try removing the default case in that event switch statement. If I recall, that was the resource-hungry checker in my code in one of my first projects using SDL. I believe the theory I had behind it was "I told it to check these events, but I'm guessing that if none of the events that I've specified are the event that has occurred, then default must be being called for every single event that's possible excluding the ones that I've already specified in my cases.". Sorry if that doesn't make much sense, I'm in a room of very loud people, and it's hard to think when your head is pounding :cool:.

Tell us if that works ( cross your fingers! ).

EDIT: You might also check for your games refresh timer/loop. See if you have already limited your frame rate ( or just the amount of times your main loop is refreshed ). I usually keep mine at 20 for small 2D games, and 60 for everything else.

I tried this and it had no effect. Which makes sense because with my event filter in place I am only receiving 0-3 events per frame.

My main-loop should not having anything to do with it since when I use GLFW I am not having this problem.

With that kind of framerate drop, you're doing something wrong.

First thing is - as always with framerates in that kind of region - check for vsync.

I note that you're asking for a 16-bit depth buffer. Double check what you actually get (SDL_GL_GetAttribute) and also double-check that you're not getting stencil as well. It's common enough (not widespread but I've seen it happen a few times) for OpenGL context creation to give you stencil even if you didn't ask for it (or asked for 0 bits), and if so, you should be clearing stencil at the same time as you clear depth. That will only account for a ~10% to ~20% perf drop, but it's still significant enough.

If you're doing an SDL_Sleep at the end of each frame, then stop doing it now. SDL's timer is quite coarse with poor resolution, and SDL_Sleep guarantees a minimum sleep time, not a maximum or exact. You may be sleeping for a lot longer than you think you are.

Any reason for the SDL_HWPALETTE? You're not trying to use OpenGL in color index mode are you? Take it out back and shoot it, you might be getting some weird pixel format that's dropping stuff to software emulation. While you're at it, drop your startup flags to the bare minimum. Rip out everything that's not needed - start with what was suggested above and only add in what you actually need to support your program.

So start with that, see how you get on, and report back. ;)

Thanks for the reply. The SDL init code is a copy paste from the old NEHE tutorials. I did try removing all flags but SDL_OPENGL and I got the same results. Vsync is turned off. I don't use the stencil buffer but I don't really care if there is one or not. In GLFW I tried using 8 bits-per-pixel, 24 bit depth, and 24 bit stencil and it worked great. I tried the exact same options in SDL and got the same frame-rate drop and stuttering:



SDL_SetEventFilter((SDL_EventFilter)&filter);

SDL_GL_SetAttribute(SDL_GL_RED_SIZE, 8);
SDL_GL_SetAttribute(SDL_GL_GREEN_SIZE, 8);
SDL_GL_SetAttribute(SDL_GL_BLUE_SIZE, 8);
SDL_GL_SetAttribute(SDL_GL_ALPHA_SIZE, 8);
SDL_GL_SetAttribute(SDL_GL_DEPTH_SIZE, 24);
SDL_GL_SetAttribute(SDL_GL_STENCIL_SIZE, 24);

SDL_GL_SetAttribute(SDL_GL_SWAP_CONTROL, 0);
SDL_GL_SetAttribute(SDL_GL_DOUBLEBUFFER, 1);

if (!SDL_SetVideoMode(width, height, bytesPerPixel * 8, SDL_OPENGL)) {
String error(SDL_GetError());
SDL_Quit();

throw Exception("Failed: " + error);
}

SDL_ShowCursor(0);


I have tried messing with the values and commenting out lines and nothing seems to affect my results. My OpenGL code does not generate any OpenGL errors and I have run it with gDEbugger and removed all deprecated, redundant, and erroneous calls. I really have no idea how I could be having such dramatically differing results. I am considering digging through SDL and GLFW to see how the native code differs between the two.

      Hello. So far i got decently looking 3d scene. I also managed to render a truetype font, on my way to implementing gui (windows, buttons and textboxes). There are several issues i am facing, would love to hear your feedback.
      1) I render text using atlas with VBO containing x/y/u/v of every digit in the atlas (calculated basing on x/y/z/width/height/xoffset/yoffset/xadvance data in binary .fnt format file, screenshot 1). I generated a Comic Sans MS with 32 size and times new roman with size 12 (screenshot 2 and 3). The first issue is the font looks horrible when rescaling. I guess it is because i am using fixed -1 to 1 screen space coords. This is where ortho matrix should be used, right?
      2) Rendering GUI. Situation is similar to above. I guess the widgets should NOT scale when scaling window, am i right? So what am i looking for is saying "this should be always in the middle, 200x200 size no matter the display window xy", and "this should stick to the bottom left corner". Is ortho matrix the cure for all such problems?
      3) The game is 3D but i have to go 2D to render static gui elements over the scene - and i want to do it properly! At the moment i am using matrix 3x3 for 2d transformations and vec3 for all kinds of coordinates. In shaders tho i technically still IS 3D. I have to set all 4 x y z w of the gl_Position while it would be much much more conventient to... just do the maths in 2d space. Can i achieve it somehow?
      4) Text again. I am kind of confused what is the reason of artifacts in Times New Roman font displaying (screenshot 1). I render from left to right, letter after letter. You can clearly see that letters on the right (so the ones rendered after ones on the left are covered by the previous one). I was toying around with blending options but no luck. I do not support kerning at the moment but that's definitely not the cause of error. The display of the small font looks dirty aliased too. I am knd of confused how to interpret the integer data and how should be scaled/adapted to the screen view. Is it just store the data as constant size and again - use ortho matrix?
      Thanks in advance for all your ideas and suggestions!

      Hello, everyone! I hope my problem isn't too 'beginnerish'. I'm doing research on motion synthesis now, trying to implement the Deep Mimic paper (DeepMimic) by BINPENG XUE, in this paper, I need to first retarget character A's motion to another character B to make the reference motion clips for character B, since we don't have character B‘s reference motion. The most important thing is that in the paper, the author copied character A's joint's rotation with respective to joint's local coordinate system (not the parent) to character B. In my personal understanding, the joint's rotation with respective to joint's local coordinate system is something like that in the attached photo, where for the Elbow joint, i need to get the Elbow's rotation in the elbow's local coordinate system (i'm very grateful for you to share your ideas if i have misunderstanding about it 🙂)
      I have searched many materials on the internet about how to extract the local joint's information from FBX, the most relative one i found is the pivot rotation( and geometric transformation, object offset transformation). I'm a beginner in computer graphics, and i'm confused about whether the pivot rotation( or geometric transformation, object offset transformation) is exactly the joint's local rotation i'm seeking? I hope someone that have any ideas can help me, I'd be very grateful for any pointers in the right direction. Thanks in advance!

      Hi, I'm a Multimedia Engineering student. I am about to finish my dergree and I'm already thinking about what topic to cover in my final college project.
      I'm interested in the procedural animation with c++ and OpenGL of creatures, something like a spider for example. Can someone tell me what are the issues I should investigate to carry it out? I understand that it has some dependence on artificial intelligence but I do not know to what extent. Can someone help me to find information about it? Thank you very much.

      So, i'm still on my quest to unterstanding the intricacies of HDR and implementing this into my engine. Currently i'm at the step to implementing tonemapping. I stumbled upon this blogposts:
      http://filmicworlds.com/blog/filmic-tonemapping-operators/
      http://frictionalgames.blogspot.com/2012/09/tech-feature-hdr-lightning.html
      and tried to implement some of those mentioned tonemapping methods into my postprocessing shader.
      The issue is that none of them creates the same results as shown in the blogpost which definitely has to do with the initial range in which the values are stored in the HDR buffer. For simplicity sake i store the values between 0 and 1 in the HDR buffer (ambient light is 0.3, directional light is 0.7)
      This is the tonemapping code:
      vec3 Uncharted2Tonemap(vec3 x) { float A = 0.15; float B = 0.50; float C = 0.10; float D = 0.20; float E = 0.02; float F = 0.30; return ((x*(A*x+C*B)+D*E)/(x*(A*x+B)+D*F))-E/F; } This is without the uncharted tonemapping:
      This is with the uncharted tonemapping:
      Which makes the image a lot darker.
      The shader code looks like this:
      void main() { vec3 color = texture2D(texture_diffuse, vTexcoord).rgb; color = Uncharted2Tonemap(color); //gamma correction (use only if not done in tonemapping code) color = gammaCorrection(color); outputF = vec4(color,1.0f); } Now, from my understanding is that tonemapping should bring the range down from HDR to 0-1.
      But the output of the tonemapping function heavily depends on the initial range of the values in the HDR buffer. (You can't expect to set the sun intensity the first time to 10 and the second time to 1000 and excpect the same result if you feed that into the tonemapper.) So i suppose that this also depends on the exposure which i have to implement?
      To check this i plotted the tonemapping curve:
      You can see that the curve goes only up to around to a value of 0.21 (while being fed a value of 1) and then basically flattens out. (which would explain why the image got darker.)
       
      My guestion is: In what range should the values in the HDR buffer be which then get tonemapped? Do i have to bring them down to a range of 0-1 by multiplying with the exposure?
      For example, if i increase the values of the light by 10 (directional light would be 7 and ambient light 3) then i would need to divide HDR values by 10 in order to get a value range of 0-1 which then could be fed into the tonemapping curve. Is that correct?

      i am reading this book : link
      in the OpenGL Rendering Pipeline section there is a picture like this: link
      but the question is this i dont really understand why it is necessary to turn pixel data in to fragment and then fragment into pixel could please give me a source or a clear Explanation that why it is necessary ? thank you so mu

      I'm using the OPENGL with eclipse+JOGL.
      My goal is to create movement of the camera and the player.
      I create main class, which create some box in 3D and hold 
      an object of PlayerAxis.
      I create PlayerAxis class which hold the axis of the player.
      If we want to move the camera, then in the main class I call to 
      the func "cameraMove"(from PlayerAxis) and it update the player axis.
      That's work good.
      The problem start if I move the camera on 2 axis, 
      for example if I move with the camera right(that's on the y axis)
      and then down(on the x axis) -
      in some point the move front is not to the front anymore..
      In order to move to the front, I do
      player.playerMoving(0, 0, 1);
      And I learn that in order to keep the front move, 
      I need to convert (0, 0, 1) to the player axis, and then add this.
      I think I dont do the convert right.. 
      I will be glad for help!

      Here is part of my PlayerAxis class:
       
      //player coordinate float x[] = new float[3]; float y[] = new float[3]; float z[] = new float[3]; public PlayerAxis(float move_step, float angle_move) { x[0] = 1; y[1] = 1; z[2] = -1; step = move_step; angle = angle_move; setTransMatrix(); } public void cameraMoving(float angle_step, String axis) { float[] new_x = x; float[] new_y = y; float[] new_z = z; float alfa = angle_step * angle; switch(axis) { case "x": new_z = addVectors(multScalar(z, COS(alfa)), multScalar(y, SIN(alfa))); new_y = subVectors(multScalar(y, COS(alfa)), multScalar(z, SIN(alfa))); break; case "y": new_x = addVectors(multScalar(x, COS(alfa)), multScalar(z, SIN(alfa))); new_z = subVectors(multScalar(z, COS(alfa)), multScalar(x, SIN(alfa))); break; case "z": new_x = addVectors(multScalar(x, COS(alfa)), multScalar(y, SIN(alfa))); new_y = subVectors(multScalar(y, COS(alfa)), multScalar(x, SIN(alfa))); } x = new_x; y = new_y; z = new_z; normalization(); } public void playerMoving(float x_move, float y_move, float z_move) { float[] move = new float[3]; move[0] = x_move; move[1] = y_move; move[2] = z_move; setTransMatrix(); float[] trans_move = transVector(move); position[0] = position[0] + step*trans_move[0]; position[1] = position[1] + step*trans_move[1]; position[2] = position[2] + step*trans_move[2]; } public void setTransMatrix() { for (int i = 0; i < 3; i++) { coordiTrans[0][i] = x[i]; coordiTrans[1][i] = y[i]; coordiTrans[2][i] = z[i]; } } public float[] transVector(float[] v) { return multiplyMatrixInVector(coordiTrans, v); }  
      and in the main class i have this:
       
      public void keyPressed(KeyEvent e) { if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_ESCAPE) { System.exit(0); //player move } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_W) { //front //moveAmount[2] += -0.1f; player.playerMoving(0, 0, 1); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_S) { //back //moveAmount[2] += 0.1f; player.playerMoving(0, 0, -1); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_A) { //left //moveAmount[0] += -0.1f; player.playerMoving(-1, 0, 0); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_D) { //right //moveAmount[0] += 0.1f; player.playerMoving(1, 0, 0); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_E) { //moveAmount[0] += 0.1f; player.playerMoving(0, 1, 0); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_Q) { //moveAmount[0] += 0.1f; player.playerMoving(0, -1, 0); //camera move } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_I) { //up player.cameraMoving(1, "x"); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_K) { //down player.cameraMoving(-1, "x"); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_L) { //right player.cameraMoving(-1, "y"); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_J) { //left player.cameraMoving(1, "y"); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_O) { //right round player.cameraMoving(-1, "z"); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_U) { //left round player.cameraMoving(1, "z"); } }

      So, i'm currently trying to implement an SSAO shader from THIS tutorial and i'm running into a few issues here.
      Now, this SSAO method requires view space positions and normals. I'm storing the normals in my deferred renderer in world-space so i had to do a conversion and reconstruct the position from the depth buffer.
      And something there goes horribly wrong (which has probably to do with worldspace to viewspace transformations).
      (here is the full shader source code if someone wants to take a look at it)
      Now, i suspect that the normals are the culprit.
      vec3 normal = ((uNormalViewMatrix*vec4(normalize(texture2D(sNormals, vTexcoord).rgb),1.0)).xyz); "sNormals" is a 2D texture which stores the normals in world space in a RGB FP16 buffer.
      Now i can't use the camera viewspace matrix to transform the normals into viewspace as the cameras position isn't set at (0,0,0), thus skewing the result.
      So what i did is to create a new viewmatrix specifically for this normal without the position at vec3(0,0,0);
      //"camera" is the camera which was used for rendering the normal buffer renderer.setUniform4m(ressources->shaderSSAO->getUniform("uNormalViewMatrix"), glmExt::createViewMatrix(glm::vec3(0,0,0),camera.getForward(),camera.getUp())//parameters are (position,forwardVector,upVector) ); Though i have the feeling this is the wrong approach. Is this right or is there a better/correct way of transforming a world space normal into viewspace?

      Hi,
      I'm trying mix two textures using own shader system, but I have a problem (I think) with uniforms.
      Code: https://github.com/HawkDeath/shader/tree/test
      To debug I use RenderDocs, but I did not receive good results. In the first attachment is my result, in the second attachment is what should be.
      PS. I base on this tutorial https://learnopengl.com/Getting-started/Textures.

      I'm having issues loading textures, as I'm clueless on how to handle / load images maybe I missing something, but the past few days I just google a lot to try to find a solution. Well theres two issues I think, one I'm using Kotlin Native (EAP) and OpenGL wrapper / STB image, so I'm not quite sure wheres the issue, if someone with more experience could give me some hints on how to solve this issue?
      The code is here, if I'm not mistaken the workflow is pretty straight forward, stbi_load returns the pixels of the image (as char array or byte array) and you need to pass those pixels directly to glTexImage2D, so a I'm missing something here it seems.
