Hi everyone,

I'm trying to use a float image as OpenGL texture in an iPhone app. The float data is computationally generated, real 32bit floats.
Now according to the supported extension OES_texture_float I should be able to use GL_FLOAT as type parameter for my texture. But I cannot find which internalformat types are allowed for glTexImage2D that would suit a float texture.



glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_RGB, size.width, size.height, 0, GL_RGB, GL_FLOAT, imageTileData);

I've tried GL_RGB and GL_RGBA for both format fields, but can't find equivalents for GL_RGB32F which would be what I intend to use. glGetError returns a GL_INVALID_VALUE.
My whole setup works with non-float textures btw, so it's really the GL_FLOAT and format combination that causes the error.

Any ideas? Thx in advance!

No, GL_FLOAT_OES is not available, but according to the spec it is not needed (or not even valid).

New Tokens:
Accepted by the <type> parameter of TexImage2D, TexSubImage2D, TexImage3D, and TexSubImage3D:
FLOAT 0x1406
