Hello,

I have written a simple program to learn camera, perspective,projection and model_view matrix.

In this program :
- I am setting the camera to look at (0,0,0) :x=0,y=0,z=0
and placing the camera at (0,0,-20) : x=0,y=0,z=-20

- first I place all the objects at z=0
But they are not visible.
They should be visible bcz camera is looking at z=0 and
all the objects are at z=0

- as soon as I place objects at z=-2 they get visible.


Here is my code :




#include <stdio.h>
#include <glut.h>
int fov = -2;


void handleResize(int w, int h){
glViewport(0,0,w,h);
glMatrixMode(GL_PROJECTION);
glLoadIdentity();
gluPerspective(45,double(w)/double(h),1, 100 );
printf("%d\n",fov);
gluLookAt(0,0,0,0,0,-20,0,1,0);
}

void handleKeypress(unsigned char key,int x, int y){

switch(key){
case 27:
exit(0);
case 56:
fov+=2;
glutPostRedisplay();
break;
case 50:
fov-=2;
glutPostRedisplay();
break;
}
printf("Key: %d : Z: %d\n",key,fov);
}
void init(){
glEnable(GL_DEPTH_TEST);
}

void drawScene(){
glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT|GL_DEPTH_BUFFER_BIT);
glMatrixMode(GL_MODELVIEW);
glLoadIdentity();
glTranslatef(0.0f,0.0f,float(fov));

glBegin(GL_POINTS);
glVertex3f(20.0f, 20.0f, 0.0f);
glEnd();
glBegin(GL_QUADS);
glVertex3f(2.0f, 2.0f, 0.0f);
glVertex3f(-2.0f, 2.0f, 0.0f);
glVertex3f(-2.0f, -2.0f, 0.0f);
glVertex3f(2.0f, -2.0f, 0.0f);
glEnd();
glutSwapBuffers();



}

void main (int argc, char** argv){

glutInit(&argc, argv);
glutInitDisplayMode(GLUT_DOUBLE|GLUT_RGBA|GLUT_DEPTH);
glutInitWindowSize(400,400);
glutCreateWindow("Chayan Vinayak's OpenGL tutorial ");
init();
glutDisplayFunc(drawScene);
glutKeyboardFunc(handleKeypress);
glutReshapeFunc(handleResize);
glutMainLoop();


}

You have the view point and the look at point mixed up; the view point is at (0,0,0) and looking at the point (0,0,-20).
