OpenGL Framebuffer Objects [OpenGL]

[font=arial, verdana, tahoma, sans-serif][size=2]I'm trying to get FBOs to work with my game engine. So far, I'm using my FBO to render to a texture, and then use my sprite batch class to render the texture as a sprite. Unfortunately, my texture is invisible. I've checked to see if the framebuffer and texture for my render target were both created, and everything looks good. I also check to see if my sprite batch rendering method isn't failing somewhere in the rendering cycle. Everything checks out.

Here's my render target constructor that sets everything up:
[code]

RenderTarget::RenderTarget(int width, int height) : Texture2D()
{
Initialize();
this->width = width;
this->height = height;

// setup the new framebuffer
int oldFBO = GetCurrentFBO();
glGenFramebuffers(1, &fbo);
SetBoundFBO(fbo);

// setup the color texture attachment
glGenTextures(1, &name);
SetBoundTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, name);
glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_RGBA8, width, height, 0, GL_RGBA, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, NULL);
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, minFilter);
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, magFilter);
glFramebufferTexture2D(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, GL_COLOR_ATTACHMENT0, GL_TEXTURE_2D, name, 0);

// check render target status
int status = glCheckFramebufferStatus(GL_FRAMEBUFFER);
if(status != GL_FRAMEBUFFER_COMPLETE)
printf("ERROR: render target failed to create FBO\n");

// reset the the last FBO used
SetBoundFBO(oldFBO);
loaded = true;
}
[/code]

Here's Set/GetBoundFBO:
[code]

int SetBoundFBO(unsigned int name)
{
// return early if the FBO is already in use
if(framebufferObject == name)
return 0;

// set the new FBO
glBindFramebuffer(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, framebufferObject);
return 1;
}


int GetCurrentFBO()
{ return framebufferObject; }
[/code]

Those functions are global functions that help monitor FBO is currently being used without the overhead of setting/getting the FBO with unnecessary OpenGL calls (necessary on iOS platforms). How does this code look so far? My goal is to write some render target code that allows me to compile this on Windows, Mac, and iOS devices.

EDIT: I'd like to point out that my render target is 800x800 texture if that makes any difference.[/size][/font]

I think I solved the issue to my problem. I wasn't rendering anything to the screen! There were some other inconsistencies I found when reading through an OpenGL ES 2.0 book. This book is where I'm getting most of my GLES 2.0 information since this code is supposed to meet those standards first. Either way, most practices (if not all by now) are supported by OpenGL, and are really efficient from what I've encountered so far. Just to recap, the code that works is this:
[code]

RenderTarget::RenderTarget(int width, int height) : Texture2D()
{
Initialize();
this->width = width;
this->height = height;

// generate the new buffers
glGenFramebuffers(1, &fbo);
glGenTextures(1, &name);
glGenRenderbuffers(1, &depthRenderbuffer);

// set the current buffers
int oldFBO = GetCurrentFBO();
SetBoundFBO(fbo);
SetBoundTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, name);
glBindRenderbuffer(GL_RENDERBUFFER, depthRenderbuffer);

// setup the color texture attachment
glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_RGB, width, height, 0, GL_RGB, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, NULL);
SetFilter(GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
SetFilter(GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
SetWrapMode(GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_S, GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE);
SetWrapMode(GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_T, GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE);
glFramebufferTexture2D(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, GL_COLOR_ATTACHMENT0, GL_TEXTURE_2D, name, 0);

// setup the framebuffer
glRenderbufferStorage(GL_RENDERBUFFER, GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT16, width, height);
glFramebufferTexture2D(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, GL_COLOR_ATTACHMENT0, GL_TEXTURE_2D, name, 0);
glFramebufferRenderbuffer(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, GL_DEPTH_ATTACHMENT, GL_RENDERBUFFER, depthRenderbuffer);

// check render target status
int status = glCheckFramebufferStatus(GL_FRAMEBUFFER);
if(status != GL_FRAMEBUFFER_COMPLETE)
printf("ERROR: render target failed to create FBO\n");
SetBoundFBO(oldFBO);
loaded = true;
}
[/code]

You will see some wrapper functions in there such as SetBoundFBO(), GetBoundFBO(), etc. As mentioned previously, those are just used to optimize out any unnecessary GL-calls that can be costly on some platforms. If anyone would like me to post my GL state manager, I can do that. Keep in mind that it doesn't fully support everything I'd like --just the really common stuff I've come across in my experiences.

Btw, do FBOs have to be a power of 2? I ask because I'm getting a border around the top and right of my sprite that displays the rendered texture.

For example, my window is 800x800 pixels, and so is my texture. Right now, I'm rendering the entire texture to a fullscreen sprite to see if everything matches up. It looks like if I make my render target texture larger than 400x400, everything gets clipped past the 400x400 margin in the top and right. Do my textures have to be power of 2? I've tried that, and I get the same results. Also, things don't match up. The aspect ratio is 1.0 for everything, and nothing ever changes either.

I fixed all of that. Turns out that my window was 480x480, and for some odd reason I was using 800x800 for everything else (ortho setup, render texture, etc). I have two defines that define my window width and height, and I pass that down to all my game states and use them now. It all works!

Now, I'm onto post-processing, and I've run into an interesting bug with simple blur. For some reason, pixels on the sides of my screen are blurring with the pixels on the other side even though my wrap modes are strictly GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE.

      I am developing my engine using the OpenGL 3.3 compatibility profile. It runs as expected on my NVIDIA card and on my Intel Card however when I tried it on an AMD setup it ran 3 times worse than on the other setups. Could this be a AMD driver thing or is this probably a problem with my OGL code? Could a different code standard create such bad performance?

      I'm trying to get some legacy OpenGL code to run with a shader pipeline,
      The legacy code uses glVertexPointer(), glColorPointer(), glNormalPointer() and glTexCoordPointer() to supply the vertex information.
      I know that it should be using setVertexAttribPointer() etc to clearly define the layout but that is not an option right now since the legacy code can't be modified to that extent.
      I've got a version 330 vertex shader to somewhat work:
      #version 330 uniform mat4 osg_ModelViewProjectionMatrix; uniform mat4 osg_ModelViewMatrix; layout(location = 0) in vec4 Vertex; layout(location = 2) in vec4 Normal; // Velocity layout(location = 3) in vec3 TexCoord; // TODO: is this the right layout location? out VertexData { vec4 color; vec3 velocity; float size; } VertexOut; void main(void) { vec4 p0 = Vertex; vec4 p1 = Vertex + vec4(Normal.x, Normal.y, Normal.z, 0.0f); vec3 velocity = (osg_ModelViewProjectionMatrix * p1 - osg_ModelViewProjectionMatrix * p0).xyz; VertexOut.velocity = velocity; VertexOut.size = TexCoord.y; gl_Position = osg_ModelViewMatrix * Vertex; } What works is the Vertex and Normal information that the legacy C++ OpenGL code seem to provide in layout location 0 and 2. This is fine.
      What I'm not getting to work is the TexCoord information that is supplied by a glTexCoordPointer() call in C++.
      Question:
      What layout location is the old standard pipeline using for glTexCoordPointer()? Or is this undefined?
       
      Side note: I'm trying to get an OpenSceneGraph 3.4.0 particle system to use custom vertex, geometry and fragment shaders for rendering the particles.

      Hi i am new to this forum  i wanted to ask for help from all of you i want to generate real time terrain using a 32 bit heightmap i am good at c++ and have started learning Opengl as i am very interested in making landscapes in opengl i have looked around the internet for help about this topic but i am not getting the hang of the concepts and what they are doing can some here suggests me some good resources for making terrain engine please for example like tutorials,books etc so that i can understand the whole concept of terrain generation.

      Hey guys. I'm trying to get my application to work on my Nvidia GTX 970 desktop. It currently works on my Intel HD 3000 laptop, but on the desktop, every bind textures specifically from framebuffers, I get half a second of lag. This is done 4 times as I have three RGBA textures and one depth 32F buffer. I tried to use debugging software for the first time - RenderDoc only shows SwapBuffers() and no OGL calls, while Nvidia Nsight crashes upon execution, so neither are helpful. Without binding it runs regularly. This does not happen with non-framebuffer binds.
      GLFramebuffer::GLFramebuffer(FramebufferCreateInfo createInfo) { glGenFramebuffers(1, &fbo); glBindFramebuffer(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, fbo); textures = new GLuint[createInfo.numColorTargets]; glGenTextures(createInfo.numColorTargets, textures); GLenum *DrawBuffers = new GLenum[createInfo.numColorTargets]; for (uint32_t i = 0; i < createInfo.numColorTargets; i++) { glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, textures[i]); GLint internalFormat; GLenum format; TranslateFormats(createInfo.colorFormats[i], format, internalFormat); // returns GL_RGBA and GL_RGBA glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, internalFormat, createInfo.width, createInfo.height, 0, format, GL_FLOAT, 0); glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_NEAREST); glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_NEAREST); DrawBuffers[i] = GL_COLOR_ATTACHMENT0 + i; glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0); glFramebufferTexture(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, GL_COLOR_ATTACHMENT0 + i, textures[i], 0); } if (createInfo.depthFormat != FORMAT_DEPTH_NONE) { GLenum depthFormat; switch (createInfo.depthFormat) { case FORMAT_DEPTH_16: depthFormat = GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT16; break; case FORMAT_DEPTH_24: depthFormat = GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT24; break; case FORMAT_DEPTH_32: depthFormat = GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT32; break; case FORMAT_DEPTH_24_STENCIL_8: depthFormat = GL_DEPTH24_STENCIL8; break; case FORMAT_DEPTH_32_STENCIL_8: depthFormat = GL_DEPTH32F_STENCIL8; break; } glGenTextures(1, &depthrenderbuffer); glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, depthrenderbuffer); glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, depthFormat, createInfo.width, createInfo.height, 0, GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT, GL_FLOAT, 0); glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_NEAREST); glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_NEAREST); glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0); glFramebufferTexture(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, GL_DEPTH_ATTACHMENT, depthrenderbuffer, 0); } if (createInfo.numColorTargets > 0) glDrawBuffers(createInfo.numColorTargets, DrawBuffers); else glDrawBuffer(GL_NONE); if (glCheckFramebufferStatus(GL_FRAMEBUFFER) != GL_FRAMEBUFFER_COMPLETE) std::cout << "Framebuffer Incomplete\n"; glBindFramebuffer(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, 0); width = createInfo.width; height = createInfo.height; } // ... // FBO Creation FramebufferCreateInfo gbufferCI; gbufferCI.colorFormats = gbufferCFs.data(); gbufferCI.depthFormat = FORMAT_DEPTH_32; gbufferCI.numColorTargets = gbufferCFs.size(); gbufferCI.width = engine.settings.resolutionX; gbufferCI.height = engine.settings.resolutionY; gbufferCI.renderPass = nullptr; gbuffer = graphicsWrapper->CreateFramebuffer(gbufferCI); // Bind glBindFramebuffer(GL_DRAW_FRAMEBUFFER, fbo); // Draw here... // Bind to textures glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE0); glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, textures[0]); glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE1); glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, textures[1]); glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE2); glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, textures[2]); glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE3); glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, depthrenderbuffer); Here is an extract of my code. I can't think of anything else to include. I've really been butting my head into a wall trying to think of a reason but I can think of none and all my research yields nothing. Thanks in advance!

      Hi everyone, I've shared my 2D Game Engine source code. It's the result of 4 years working on it (and I still continue improving features ) and I want to share with the community. You can see some videos on youtube and some demo gifs on my twitter account.
      This Engine has been developed as End-of-Degree Project and it is coded in Javascript, WebGL and GLSL. The engine is written from scratch.
      This is not a professional engine but it's for learning purposes, so anyone can review the code an learn basis about graphics, physics or game engine architecture. Source code on this GitHub repository.
      I'm available for a good conversation about Game Engine / Graphics Programming
