I have been trying to implement animated sprites using a spritesheet in LWJGL, but I'm having some issues with my sprites bleeding into each other. My sprite sheet is 256 x 512 pixels, with 4 x 4 sprites which are each 64 x 128 pixels, for a walking animation in 4 directions. The problem is that each sprite is positioned so that the pixels of the feet are on the edge of the sprite which causes lines to appear above the head on the sprite below it. However, this doesn't happen consistently, only on certain parts of the screen apparently, and not always the same colour even though it should be the same colour. All of my sprites also seem to blur slightly sometimes.

Here is the code for the draw method of my Sprite class:

[CODE]
public void draw(float x, float y) {
GL11.glBindTexture(GL11.GL_TEXTURE_2D, texture.getTextureID());

float currentOffsetX = (float)(offsetX + currentFrame) * spriteTextureWidthRatio;
float currentOffsetY = (float)offsetY * spriteTextureHeightRatio;

GL11.glBegin(GL11.GL_QUADS);

GL11.glTexCoord2f(currentOffsetX, currentOffsetY);
GL11.glVertex2f(x,y);

GL11.glTexCoord2f(currentOffsetX + spriteTextureWidthRatio, currentOffsetY);
GL11.glVertex2f(x + width, y);

GL11.glTexCoord2f(currentOffsetX + spriteTextureWidthRatio, currentOffsetY + spriteTextureHeightRatio);
GL11.glVertex2f(x + width, y + height);

GL11.glTexCoord2f(currentOffsetX, currentOffsetY + spriteTextureHeightRatio);
GL11.glVertex2f(x, y + height);

GL11.glEnd();
}
[/CODE]

The [b]spriteTextureWidthRatio[/b] and [b]spriteTextureHeightRatio[/b] variables are spriteWidth / textureWidth and spriteHeight / textureHeight respectively.

I've read somewhere that the issue might be caused because I'm using floating point values for the texture coordinates. In this case the values for the coordinates will be either 0.0, 0.25, 0.50, 0.75 or 1.0 depending on which part of the sprite sheet is drawn, which would make OpenGL do some weird stuff where it offsets by a half pixel or something, causing the bleeding and the blurriness in some cases. I've heard that I could scale the texture instead using a texture matrix and then access the different parts of the spritesheet with integer values which in this case would be 0 to 4. I don't know how I would go about doing this (I'm fairly new to OpenGL) or if this would solve the problem at all.

I've seen other places where people recommend using a 1 pixel transparent border around every sprite. I think the problem with this solution is that it doesn't work for tilesets where you don't want a border between your tiles.

Either way, I'm hoping someone here can tell me what the right way to do it is. I'm probably only having this problem because I'm such a noob when it comes to OpenGL. [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png[/img] Edited by eCustic

If your sprites are blurry and you want them pixelated, the thing to try would be

[CODE]
GL11.glTexParameteri(GL11.GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL11.GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER,GL11.GL_NEAREST);
GL11.glTexParameteri(GL11.GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL11.GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER,GL11.GL_NEAREST);
[/CODE]
When you create your textures, which will use nearest-neighbor sampling instead of mipmapping or linear interpolation for sampling texels that don't line up perfectly with the screen. (so a pixel that's halfway between two texels will be the color of the one it is closest to)

If that doesn't clear up the lines, another option to try (possibly along with the previous one) would be to add 0.5/spriteHeight to your texture coordinates' Y value, and see if that doesn't help.

Failing that, the other solutions I know of involve using shaders, which it doesn't look like you're doing here. LWJGL has some documentation on using them (and VBO's, which are unrelated here but quite useful) on its wiki, which could help you get started. Edited by Koehler

yes, you need a 1 pixel border, however, with tile sheets, instead of making it transparent, you need to make your border be an extension of the last pixel, for example:

^^this is a tile sheet i use, each tile is 64x64. but the border makes them 66x66, however, if you look at the border, each pixel is == to the pixel directly left/right/below/above it.

i made this example to see a bit easier of what's being done:

Thanks for the help guys. I've solved the problem. Before posting the OP I tried doing as Koehler mentioned:

[CODE]
GL11.glTexParameteri(GL11.GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL11.GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER,GL11.GL_NEAREST);
GL11.glTexParameteri(GL11.GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL11.GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER,GL11.GL_NEAREST);
[/CODE]

This didn't work and I couldn't understand why. After reading Koehler's post I realized that it might be because I'm using the TextureLoader from the Slick2D library (I didn't want to write my own texture loader).
I found the API again and saw that one of the overloads of the getTexture method had a filter input, so the solution to the problem was changing the code in my TextureStore class from:

[CODE]
texture = TextureLoader.getTexture("PNG", ResourceLoader.getResourceAsStream(texturesPath + textureRef));
[/CODE]

to

[CODE]
texture = TextureLoader.getTexture("PNG", ResourceLoader.getResourceAsStream(texturesPath + textureRef), GL11.GL_NEAREST);
[/CODE]

Hope this helps anyone who is having similar issues. Also I feel this is a cleaner solution than having to modify all your texture files to have a 1 pixel border.

Thanks again! [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/happy.png[/img]

      The Khronos™ Group, an open consortium of leading hardware and software companies, announces from the SIGGRAPH 2017 Conference the immediate public availability of the OpenGL® 4.6 specification. OpenGL 4.6 integrates the functionality of numerous ARB and EXT extensions created by Khronos members AMD, Intel, and NVIDIA into core, including the capability to ingest SPIR-V™ shaders.
      SPIR-V is a Khronos-defined standard intermediate language for parallel compute and graphics, which enables content creators to simplify their shader authoring and management pipelines while providing significant source shading language flexibility. OpenGL 4.6 adds support for ingesting SPIR-V shaders to the core specification, guaranteeing that SPIR-V shaders will be widely supported by OpenGL implementations.
      OpenGL 4.6 adds the functionality of these ARB extensions to OpenGL’s core specification:
      GL_ARB_gl_spirv and GL_ARB_spirv_extensions to standardize SPIR-V support for OpenGL GL_ARB_indirect_parameters and GL_ARB_shader_draw_parameters for reducing the CPU overhead associated with rendering batches of geometry GL_ARB_pipeline_statistics_query and GL_ARB_transform_feedback_overflow_querystandardize OpenGL support for features available in Direct3D GL_ARB_texture_filter_anisotropic (based on GL_EXT_texture_filter_anisotropic) brings previously IP encumbered functionality into OpenGL to improve the visual quality of textured scenes GL_ARB_polygon_offset_clamp (based on GL_EXT_polygon_offset_clamp) suppresses a common visual artifact known as a “light leak” associated with rendering shadows GL_ARB_shader_atomic_counter_ops and GL_ARB_shader_group_vote add shader intrinsics supported by all desktop vendors to improve functionality and performance GL_KHR_no_error reduces driver overhead by allowing the application to indicate that it expects error-free operation so errors need not be generated In addition to the above features being added to OpenGL 4.6, the following are being released as extensions:
      GL_KHR_parallel_shader_compile allows applications to launch multiple shader compile threads to improve shader compile throughput WGL_ARB_create_context_no_error and GXL_ARB_create_context_no_error allow no error contexts to be created with WGL or GLX that support the GL_KHR_no_error extension “I’m proud to announce OpenGL 4.6 as the most feature-rich version of OpenGL yet. We've brought together the most popular, widely-supported extensions into a new core specification to give OpenGL developers and end users an improved baseline feature set. This includes resolving previous intellectual property roadblocks to bringing anisotropic texture filtering and polygon offset clamping into the core specification to enable widespread implementation and usage,” said Piers Daniell, chair of the OpenGL Working Group at Khronos. “The OpenGL working group will continue to respond to market needs and work with GPU vendors to ensure OpenGL remains a viable and evolving graphics API for all its customers and users across many vital industries.“
      The OpenGL 4.6 specification can be found at https://khronos.org/registry/OpenGL/index_gl.php. The GLSL to SPIR-V compiler glslang has been updated with GLSL 4.60 support, and can be found at https://github.com/KhronosGroup/glslang.
      Sophisticated graphics applications will also benefit from a set of newly released extensions for both OpenGL and OpenGL ES to enable interoperability with Vulkan and Direct3D. These extensions are named:
      GL_EXT_memory_object GL_EXT_memory_object_fd GL_EXT_memory_object_win32 GL_EXT_semaphore GL_EXT_semaphore_fd GL_EXT_semaphore_win32 GL_EXT_win32_keyed_mutex They can be found at: https://khronos.org/registry/OpenGL/index_gl.php
      Industry Support for OpenGL 4.6
      “With OpenGL 4.6 our customers have an improved set of core features available on our full range of OpenGL 4.x capable GPUs. These features provide improved rendering quality, performance and functionality. As the graphics industry’s most popular API, we fully support OpenGL and will continue to work closely with the Khronos Group on the development of new OpenGL specifications and extensions for our customers. NVIDIA has released beta OpenGL 4.6 drivers today at https://developer.nvidia.com/opengl-driver so developers can use these new features right away,” said Bob Pette, vice president, Professional Graphics at NVIDIA.
      "OpenGL 4.6 will be the first OpenGL release where conformant open source implementations based on the Mesa project will be deliverable in a reasonable timeframe after release. The open sourcing of the OpenGL conformance test suite and ongoing work between Khronos and X.org will also allow for non-vendor led open source implementations to achieve conformance in the near future," said David Airlie, senior principal engineer at Red Hat, and developer on Mesa/X.org projects.

      Hi,
      I have an OpenGL application but without possibility to wite own shaders.
      I need to perform small VS modification - is possible to do it in an alternative way? Do we have apps or driver modifictions which will catch the shader sent to GPU and override it?

      Does sync be needed to read texture content after access texture image in compute shader?
      My simple code is as below,
      glUseProgram(program.get());
      glBindImageTexture(0, texture[0], 0, GL_FALSE, 3, GL_READ_ONLY, GL_R32UI);
      glBindImageTexture(1, texture[1], 0, GL_FALSE, 4, GL_WRITE_ONLY, GL_R32UI);
      glDispatchCompute(1, 1, 1);
      // Does sync be needed here?
      glUseProgram(0);
      glBindFramebuffer(GL_READ_FRAMEBUFFER, framebuffer);
      glFramebufferTexture2D(GL_READ_FRAMEBUFFER, GL_COLOR_ATTACHMENT0,
                                     GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_POSITIVE_X + face, texture[1], 0);
      glReadPixels(0, 0, kWidth, kHeight, GL_RED_INTEGER, GL_UNSIGNED_INT, outputValues);
       
      Compute shader is very simple, imageLoad content from texture[0], and imageStore content to texture[1]. Does need to sync after dispatchCompute?

      My question: is it possible to transform multiple angular velocities so that they can be reinserted as one? My research is below:
      // This works quat quaternion1 = GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector1); quat quaternion2 = GEMultiplyQuaternions(quaternion1, GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector2)); quat quaternion3 = GEMultiplyQuaternions(quaternion2, GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector3)); glMultMatrixf(GEMat4FromQuaternion(quaternion3).array); // The first two work fine but not the third. Why? quat quaternion1 = GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector1); vec3 vector1 = GETransformQuaternionAndVector(quaternion1, angularVelocity1); quat quaternion2 = GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector2); vec3 vector2 = GETransformQuaternionAndVector(quaternion2, angularVelocity2); // This doesn't work //quat quaternion3 = GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector3); //vec3 vector3 = GETransformQuaternionAndVector(quaternion3, angularVelocity3); vec3 angleVelocity = GEAddVectors(vector1, vector2); // Does not work: vec3 angleVelocity = GEAddVectors(vector1, GEAddVectors(vector2, vector3)); static vec3 angleRadiansVector; vec3 angularAcceleration = GESetVector(0.0, 0.0, 0.0); // Sending it through one angular velocity later in my motion engine angleVelocity = GEAddVectors(angleVelocity, GEMultiplyVectorAndScalar(angularAcceleration, timeStep)); angleRadiansVector = GEAddVectors(angleRadiansVector, GEMultiplyVectorAndScalar(angleVelocity, timeStep)); glMultMatrixf(GEMat4FromEulerAngle(angleRadiansVector).array); Also how do I combine multiple angularAcceleration variables? Is there an easier way to transform the angular values?
