OpenGL OpenGL 3.2+ and GLSL texturing

Recommended Posts

NimrodPSI    131
Hello all, I have recently begun the switch from old OpenGL to the newer specification that uses VAO's and VBO's for like... everything.
I am having alot of trouble getting texturing to work with GLSL and my VAO's, I managed to get lighting and color with GLSL working earlier(using an individuale VBO for ther verts, color, and normals) so i know my view/projection/model matrixies are all okay. I manually generate all the verticies of a cube into v[108] (im not using TRIAGLE_STRIPS right now so its 2 tri's a side) and then the tex coords for each vertex into t[72]. Since each vertex of 3 floats only requires two tex coords right? Might be useful to know im going off Swiftless's OpenGL 4 GLSL tutorials so I'm using glm and glew.

Also I use glBindAttribute to always pass the vertices position as a vec3 and to pass the tex coords as a vec2 into my Shader program(the same way i passed verts, color and normals earlier)

Any way heres some code:

This generates my VAO from 2 VBO's, one fro my verts and the other tex coords.
[code]glGenVertexArrays(1, &vaoID);
glBindVertexArray(vaoID);

glGenBuffers(2, &vboID[0]);
//Verticies
glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, vboID[0]);
glBufferData(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, 108 * sizeof(GLfloat), v, GL_STATIC_DRAW);
glVertexAttribPointer((GLuint)0, 3, GL_FLOAT, GL_FALSE, 0, 0);
glEnableVertexAttribArray(0);
//Tex Coords
glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, vboID[1]);
glBufferData(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, 72 * sizeof(GLfloat), t, GL_STATIC_DRAW);
glVertexAttribPointer((GLuint)1, 2, GL_FLOAT, GL_FALSE, 0, 0);
glEnableVertexAttribArray(1);

glBindVertexArray(0);[/code]

Then I draw the cube like so:
[code]
shader->bind();
int projectionMatrixLocation = glGetUniformLocation(shader->id(), "projectionMatrix");
int viewMatrixLocation = glGetUniformLocation(shader->id(), "viewMatrix");
int modelMatrixLocation = glGetUniformLocation(shader->id(), "modelMatrix");
int texture_location = glGetUniformLocation(shader->id(), "texture_color");

glUniformMatrix4fv(projectionMatrixLocation, 1, GL_FALSE, &projectionMatrix[0][0]);
glUniformMatrix4fv(viewMatrixLocation, 1, GL_FALSE, &viewMatrix[0][0]);
glUniformMatrix4fv(modelMatrixLocation, 1, GL_FALSE, &modelMatrix[0][0]);

glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE0);
glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, texture[0]);
glUniform1i(texture_location, 0);


glBindVertexArray(vaoID);
glDrawArrays(GL_TRIANGLES, 0, 36);
glBindVertexArray(0);


shader->unbind();
[/code]

...and my Vertex and Pixel(fragment) shaders respectivley:
[code]
#version 150 core

uniform mat4 projectionMatrix;
uniform mat4 viewMatrix;
uniform mat4 modelMatrix;

in vec3 in_Position;
in vec2 in_TexCoord;

void main(void){
gl_TexCoord[0] = in_TexCoord;

gl_Position = projectionMatrix * viewMatrix * modelMatrix * vec4(in_Position, 1.0);
}
[/code]

[code]
#version 150 core

uniform sampler2D texture_color;

void main(void){
gl_FragColor = texture2D(texture_color, gl_TexCoord[0].st);

}
[/code]
The result is a white cube that seems to lose its scaleing compared to when I specify a solid gl_FragColor

My assumtion is something to do with gl_TexCoord[0] not being a vec2 like in_TexCoord but I can't seem to find much/any documentaion on GLSL when using custom arrays for everything. All the examples I've seen use gl_MultiTexCoord[0] to pull the tex coords from the now depriciated glMultiTexCoordxx()... I think [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/happy.png[/img].
I can post the vertex and tex coords initialization routine if that would help but its alot of crap lol.
I apologize if I'm not giving enough info or too much lol. I greatly appreciate any help given!!

I'm not sure about the gl_TexCoord[0] issue, but I would suggest just to define your own varying texcoord variable and not use the builtin one. Are you checking shaders and programs for compile errors?

You said you're using glBindAttribute, do you mean glBindAttribLocation?

If you read Swiftless, he says:

[quote]In GLSL 1.50, we no longer have gl_ModelViewMatrix, gl_ProjectionMatrix, gl_Vertex, etc, etc[/quote] So it appears you cannot use the built-in texture coordinate array. Declare your own varying vec2 variable, set it to the attribute texture coordinate in the vertex shader, and feed it to the fragment shader. Also, don't use the built-in fragment color variable. Declare your own vec4. Something like this:


[code]
#version 150 core

uniform mat4 projectionMatrix;
uniform mat4 viewMatrix;
uniform mat4 modelMatrix;

in vec3 in_Position;
in vec2 in_TexCoord;


out vec2 out_TexCoord;


void main(void){
out_TexCoord = in_TexCoord;

gl_Position = projectionMatrix * viewMatrix * modelMatrix * vec4(in_Position, 1.0);
}


[/code]




[code]
#version 150 core

in vec2 out_TexCoord;
uniform sampler2D texture_color;
out vec4 FragColor;

void main(void){
FragColor = texture2D(texture_color, out_TexCoord.st);

}[/code]

If that doesn't work, check the stuff that Karwosts mentioned above.

@karwosts - Yes I meant glBindAttribLocation, sorry I had literally been up all night working with the new GL specification and It was starting to hurt my brain lol.

Okay I dropped the usage of gl_TexCoord[0] and did as Jesse7 suggested but that still didn't work, although not because it's incorrect. The issue seems to be the texture loader I have been using all the time from all my intermediate mode stuff. Not sure what was wrong with it but replaceing it with Swiftless's RAW texture loader code and doing the things Jesse7 suggested worked like a charm. It may be worth noteing that in the fragment shader the line:
[code]FragColor = texture2D(texture_color, out_TexCoord.st); [/code]

You don't need the .st at the end of our varying vec2 out_TexCoord, or at least it works without it. What is the purpose of the .st at the end of a vec2 varialbe?
Anyways I hate the RAW format so I guess it's time to write my own Targa loader.
Thank you all for your help! ^_^

[/quote] I guess .st is redundant since we have a vec2. For loading Targas and a slew of other formats, you could use FreeImage or DevIL. SOIL is another one but it doesn't seem to work with a core profile.

Well I had been using a pretty good Targa loader for a while and had even adapted the code to load my own height maps. Although I now have figured out why my texture loader wasn't working In the first place. I tried replaceing the filtering on the RAW texture loader to use mipmaps and used gluBuild2DMipmaps(); but as soon as I ran it resulted in the same black cube. So my old texture loader that also used mipmaps was wrong due to this. I've looked around a bit about GLSL mipmaping and found the command texture2dLod(); So I'm going to persue that route at some point.

[/quote] Yeah, if you use deprecated code with a core profile you sometimes get weird stuff like black textures [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/blink.png[/img]. I don't much about that GLSL command, but another way of generating mipmaps is by calling glGenerateMipmap () right after you load the texture:
[code]

// use trilinear filtering
glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, textureId);
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_LINEAR_MIPMAP_LINEAR);
glTexParameteri( GL_TEXTURE_2D,GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_LINEAR );
glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D,0,GL_RGBA, w, h, 0, GL_RGBA,GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE,pixels);

// generate mipmaps
glGenerateMipmap(GL_TEXTURE_2D);
[/code]

Confirmed and working! Thank you, that was much easier than all the hassle of generating my own and passing them to GLSL or something. Now I just need to brush up on some matrix maths and I'm good to go lol.

      I assumed that if a shader is computationally expensive then the execution is just slower. But running the following GLSL FS instead just crashes
      void main() { float x = 0; float y = 0; int sum = 0; for (float x = 0; x < 10; x += 0.00005) { for (float y = 0; y < 10; y += 0.00005) { sum++; } } fragColor = vec4(1, 1, 1 , 1.0); } with unhandled exception in nvoglv32.dll. Are there any hard limits on the number of steps/time that a shader can take before it is shut down? I was thinking about implementing some time intensive computation in shaders where it would take on the order of seconds to compute a frame, is that possible? Thanks.

      There are studios selling applications which is just copying any 3Dgraphic content and regenerating into another new window. especially for CAVE Virtual reality experience. so that the user opens REvite or CAD or any other 3D applications and opens a model. then when the user selects the rendered window the VR application copies the 3D model information from the OpenGL window. 
      I got the clue that the VR application replaces the windows opengl32.dll file. how this is possible ... how can we copy the 3d content from the current OpenGL window.
      anyone, please help me .. how to go further... to create an application like VR CAVE.

      hi all,

      i am trying to build an OpenGL 2D GUI system, (yeah yeah, i know i should not be re inventing the wheel, but this is for educational and some other purpose only),
      i have built GUI system before using 2D systems such as that of HTML/JS canvas, but in 2D system, i can directly match a mouse coordinates to the actual graphic coordinates with additional computation for screen size/ratio/scale ofcourse.
      now i want to port it to OpenGL, i know that to render a 2D object in OpenGL we specify coordiantes in Clip space or use the orthographic projection, now heres what i need help about.
      1. what is the right way of rendering the GUI? is it thru drawing in clip space or switching to ortho projection?
      2. from screen coordinates (top left is 0,0 nd bottom right is width height), how can i map the mouse coordinates to OpenGL 2D so that mouse events such as button click works? In consideration ofcourse to the current screen/size dimension.
      3. when let say if the screen size/dimension is different, how to handle this? in my previous javascript 2D engine using canvas, i just have my working coordinates and then just perform the bitblk or copying my working canvas to screen canvas and scale the mouse coordinates from there, in OpenGL how to work on a multiple screen sizes (more like an OpenGL ES question).
      lastly, if you guys know any books, resources, links or tutorials that handle or discuss this, i found one with marekknows opengl game engine website but its not free,
      Just let me know. Did not have any luck finding resource in google for writing our own OpenGL GUI framework.
      IF there are no any available online, just let me know, what things do i need to look into for OpenGL and i will study them one by one to make it work.
      thank you, and looking forward to positive replies.

      I have a few beginner questions about tesselation that I really have no clue.
      The opengl wiki doesn't seem to talk anything about the details.
       
      What is the relationship between TCS layout out and TES layout in?
      How does the tesselator know how control points are organized?
          e.g. If TES input requests triangles, but TCS can output N vertices.
             What happens in this case?
      In this article,
      http://www.informit.com/articles/article.aspx?p=2120983
      the isoline example TCS out=4, but TES in=isoline.
      And gl_TessCoord is only a single one.
      So which ones are the control points?
      How are tesselator building primitives?

      I've been developing a 2D Engine using SFML + ImGui.
      Here you can see an image
      The editor is rendered using ImGui and the scene window is a sf::RenderTexture where I draw the GameObjects and then is converted to ImGui::Image to render it in the editor.
      Now I need to create a 3D Engine during this year in my Bachelor Degree but using SDL2 + ImGui and I want to recreate what I did with the 2D Engine. 
      I've managed to render the editor like I did in the 2D Engine using this example that comes with ImGui. 
      3D Editor preview
      But I don't know how to create an equivalent of sf::RenderTexture in SDL2, so I can draw the 3D scene there and convert it to ImGui::Image to show it in the editor.
      If you can provide code will be better. And if you want me to provide any specific code tell me.
      Thanks!
