OpenGL Trapezoid uvs preservation

Recommended Posts

masterbubu    181
Hi All,

I am trying to create [url="http://www.xyzw.us/~cass/qcoord/"]this [/url]effect on Opengl ES, without any success.

basically I have created a quad which is built up from two tri's.

my goal is to distort the vertices as I wise, but the uv's needs to react accordingly ( as the link shows ).

I have read lots on information online, but not managed to preform the task.

Any help would be great...

tnx :)

Um, the source code on the linked site is not helping? I don't know about openGL ES, but that link would have been the first link I would have posted. I'd be surprised if ES didn't support r,q coordinates.

Hi,

OpenGL ES does not work with the fixed pipe line. So I can't use glTexCoord4f.
Also, ES does not supports Quads ( Only Tri's ).
Is there a way to achieve this effect on OGL ES ?

I have read about the algorithm "[background=rgb(247, 247, 247)][font="verdana, helvetica, sans-serif"][size="2"][color="#000000"]Direct Linear Transform" but I'm not sure it is possible for a quad that built up from 2 triangles.[/color][/size][/font][/background]

The issues you brought up are not issues at all. A texture coordinate is a texture coordinate, so even if you cannot use glTexCoord, you still have access yo vertex arrays, and whether or not you draw quads or triangles, the effect is still the same given the same coordinates.

I'm sorry, I'm confused... I have read to many resources, and I think I mixed them all.

this is the quad I defined:

<code>

SetPoints( vec3<float>(-20.0f , -10.0f, 0.0f),
vec3<float>(-10.0f , 10.0f, 0.0f),
vec3<float>( 10.0f , 10.0f, 0.0f),
vec3<float>( 20.0f , -10.0f, 0.0f) );

vTxCoords_.push_back(vec4<float>( 0.0f , 0.0f,1.0f,1.0f));
vTxCoords_.push_back(vec4<float>( 0.0f , 1.0f,1.0f,1.0f));
vTxCoords_.push_back(vec4<float>( 1.0f , 1.0f,1.0f,1.0f));
vTxCoords_.push_back(vec4<float>( 1.0f , 0.0f,1.0f,1.0f));

// Populate the indices for 2 triangles
Face s;

s.uIndex[0] = 0; s.uIndex[1] = 1; s.uIndex[2] = 3;
pGeo->vFaces.push_back(s);

s.uIndex[0] = 3; s.uIndex[1] = 2; s.uIndex[2] = 1; // also try s.uIndex[0] = 3; s.uIndex[1] = 1; s.uIndex[2] = 2;
pGeo->vFaces.push_back(s);
</code>

the shader is a simple shader that uses texture2D function (texture2D( DiffuseColor, vOutTxCoords.xy ).rgb;)

I have tried the set the textCoord manually, but failed.

You're not setting the q-value of the texture coordinate as described in the link. I would say the value for the narrow part of the quad should be 0.5, not 1.0, since that part is half the size of the opposite side of the quad.

edit: The s and t coordinates need to be 0.5 as well, not only the q-coordinate. Edited by Brother Bob

I tried a brute force method, I denied a key for each coord of the texture ( for each vertex ), and tried to set them manually.

every combination that I do, I get a broken texture. looks like the texture is not interpolated as one quad.

(btw: how can I upload a photo to this forum ? )

Well. you can easily spot the two triangles.

I have played with the textCoord of each, but I can't make them to fit right. Edited by masterbubu

So what have you tried to to se the texture coordinates to? It looks like the texture coordinates you posted previously, but as I said, and as the link explained, you need to adjust the coordinates for the perspective effect.

I have tried to modified the coords as you suggested, but it did not help.

so then I decided to try the brute force, but did not make any progress on that way :(

[CODE]
SetPoints( vec3<float>(-20.0f , -10.0f, 0.0f), // BottomLeft,
vec3<float>(-10.0f , 10.0f, 0.0f), // TopLeft,
vec3<float>( 10.0f , 10.0f, 0.0f), // TopRight,
vec3<float>( 20.0f , -10.0f, 0.0f) );// BottomRight

vTxCoords_.push_back(vec4<float>( 0.0f , 0.0f,0.0f,1.0f));
vTxCoords_.push_back(vec4<float>( 0.0f , 0.5f,0.0f,0.5f));
vTxCoords_.push_back(vec4<float>( 0.5f , 0.5f,0.0f,0.5f));
vTxCoords_.push_back(vec4<float>( 1.0f , 0.0f,0.0f,1.0f));
[/CODE]

I changed the r component, to 0.

//Draw

unsigned int *ptr = &pGeo->vFaces[ uiDrawFacesStartPos ].uIndex[ 0 ];
unsigned int sz = (unsigned int)( uiDrawFacesEndPos - uiDrawFacesStartPos ) *3;
glDrawElements( GL_TRIANGLES, sz, GL_UNSIGNED_INT, ptr );
[/CODE]

The shader is very basic, just use the varying textCoord in the function texture2D

diffuse = texture2D( DiffuseColor, vOutTxCoords.xy ).rgb;

if more information is needed, please update me.

tnx :)

Well, you haven't looked at the source code, or you haven't studied it in any depth.

The code clearly suggests (without reading the article) that the texture coordinates depend on the vertex coordinates. You just use independent values for the coordinates. I don't really understand why can't you just copy the coordinates and calculations from the source code (I know it's not a good way to learn, but et least you had something that you can experiment with).

Well I already tried that:

[CODE]
// Setup
// Globals
float top = .3;
float scale_texcoord = 1.f;

vTxCoords_.push_back(vec4<float>( -1.0f , -1.0f ,0.0f,1.0f));
vTxCoords_.push_back(vec4<float>( -1.0f , 1.0f ,0.0f,1.0f));
vTxCoords_.push_back(vec4<float>( 1.0f , 1.0f ,0.0f,1.0f));
vTxCoords_.push_back(vec4<float>( 1.0f , -1.0f ,0.0f,1.0f));
SetPoints( vec3<float>( -1.0f , -1.0f, 0.0f), // BottomLeft,
vec3<float>( -1.0f , 1.0f, 0.0f), // TopLeft,
vec3<float>( 1.0f , 1.0f, 0.0f), // TopRight,
vec3<float>( 1.0f , -1.0f, 0.0f) );// BottomRight
Face s;
s.uIndex[0] = 0; s.uIndex[1] = 1; s.uIndex[2] = 3;
pGeo->vFaces.push_back(s);
s.uIndex[0] = 3; s.uIndex[1] = 2; s.uIndex[2] = 1;
pGeo->vFaces.push_back(s);
uiDrawFacesStartPos = 0;
uiDrawFacesEndPos = pGeo->vFaces.size();

//Draw
... Get/Set the attributes
unsigned int *ptr = &pGeo->vFaces[ uiDrawFacesStartPos ].uIndex[ 0 ];
unsigned int sz = (unsigned int)( uiDrawFacesEndPos - uiDrawFacesStartPos ) *3;
glDrawElements( GL_TRIANGLES, sz, GL_UNSIGNED_INT, ptr );



// Update Func
unsigned char keys[256];
GetKeyboardState( keys );
if( keys['1'] & 0x80 )
{
top += .05;
}
if( keys['2'] & 0x80 )
{
top -= .05;
}
float tx = scale_texcoord * top;
// Frist Triangle
pGeo->vGSVerts[0] = vec3<f32>(-1.0f , -1.0f, 0.0f);
pGeo->vGSVerts[1] = vec3<f32>(-top,1,0);
pGeo->vGSVerts[2] = vec3<f32>( top,1,0);
pGeo->vGSVerts[3] = vec3<f32>(1.0f , -1.0f, 0.0f);

vTxCoords_[1].x = -tx;
vTxCoords_[1].y = tx;
vTxCoords_[1].z = 0;
vTxCoords_[1].w = tx;
vTxCoords_[2].x = tx;
vTxCoords_[2].y = tx;
vTxCoords_[2].z = 0;
vTxCoords_[2].w = tx;
[/CODE]

the above code does exactly the same as the tutorial.

you can see on the attachment the result I got.

I have noticed that GL_PERSPECTIVE_CORRECTION_HINT is not available at ES.

maybe its the way I'm drawing may tri's ?

Hmmmm. Is your texture a 8x8 checked texture?
If you, we should see a 16x16 checked texture stretched onto the trapezoid. But the texture is totally off, but the coordinates you specify look okay.

I don't see the problem but I don't think GL_PERSPECTIVE_CORRECTION_HINT has to do anything with that.

Yes, it was 16x16.

I replaced it to 8x8.

hmmm... all looks the same ( beside the GL_QUAD thing ), I'm very lost in here [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/wacko.png[/img]

This turned out to be a debugging question.

I'd try to only control the z and w texture coordinates (with the keyboard, shit I can't speak English today) to see they have any effect at all.
And I'd use a simpler to observe, non symmetric texture too, to see if it's flipped or upside down, etc. This may also be helpful to find the bug. Edited by szecs

You are still only posting small fragments of your your code and there are still important things still missing. But since you at least posted some images with some additional clues (good observation szecs) that one half of the quad is only textured with half the texture, I get a feeling that you're not specifying four-component texture coordinates. The result seems consistent with your texture coordinates if you only take the first two components of them.

Hi, sorry for the late response.

Anyway, my boss decided to drop this thing, so I did not had the time to continue investigating.

tnx you all for the help.

      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.

      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
