OpenGL How can I use multiple shaders in one mesh?

Recommended Posts

Hi!
I want to apply multiple shader to one mesh. I get the vertex from OBJ file, I load with VAO, IBO and I draw with glElementsDraw()

class Cube,
class Mesh
[CODE]Mesh::Mesh(){}
Mesh::~Mesh()
{
glDeleteBuffers(2, &BufferIds[1]);
glDeleteVertexArrays(1, &BufferIds[0]);
ExitOnGLError("ERROR: No se pueden destruir los buffer objects");
}
void Mesh::Initialize()
{
// Creamos el VAO
glGenVertexArrays(1, &BufferIds[0]);
ExitOnGLError("ERROR: No se puede generar el VAO");
glBindVertexArray(BufferIds[0]);
ExitOnGLError("ERROR: No se puede bindear el VAO");
// Activamos dos vertex attribute locations
glEnableVertexAttribArray(0);
glEnableVertexAttribArray(1);
ExitOnGLError("ERROR: No se puede activar los vertex attributes");
// Creamos los VBO
glGenBuffers(2, &BufferIds[1]);
ExitOnGLError("ERROR: No se pueden generar los buffer objects");
// Bindeamos el VBO al VAO
glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, BufferIds[1]);
glBufferData(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, vtn.size()*sizeof(VertexTextureNormal), &vtn[0], GL_STATIC_DRAW);
ExitOnGLError("ERROR: No se puede bindear el VBO al VAO");
glVertexAttribPointer(0, 4, GL_FLOAT, GL_FALSE, sizeof(vtn[0]) ,0);
glVertexAttribPointer(1, 2, GL_FLOAT, GL_FALSE, sizeof(vtn[0]) , (GLvoid*) sizeof(vtn[0].position));
ExitOnGLError("ERROR: Could not set VAO attributes");
// Creamos el IBO
glBindBuffer(GL_ELEMENT_ARRAY_BUFFER, BufferIds[2]);
glBufferData(GL_ELEMENT_ARRAY_BUFFER, indices.size() * sizeof(GLuint), &indices.front(), GL_STATIC_DRAW);
ExitOnGLError("ERROR: No se puede bindear el IBO al VAO");
glBindVertexArray(0);
}
void Mesh::Draw()
{
glBindVertexArray(BufferIds[0]);
ExitOnGLError("ERROR: No se puede bindear el VAO para dibujar");
glDrawElements(GL_TRIANGLES, indices.size(), GL_UNSIGNED_INT, (GLvoid*)0);
ExitOnGLError("ERROR: No se puede dibujar el mesh");
glBindVertexArray(0);
}

My understanding, although I have never done it personally, is that you can have as many shaders as you like, but only one main function.

 

So, you could have:

 

//shader1.fs <- Separate files
SomeShaderFunc1()
{
}

//shader2.fs <- Separate files

SomeShaderFunc2()
{
}

//shader3.fs <- Separate files

SomeShaderFunc3()
{
}

//shader4.fs <- Separate files

main()
{
SomeShaderFunc1();
SomeShaderFunc2();
SomeShaderFunc3();
}

 

But not:

 

//shader1.fs <- Separate files

SomeShaderFunc1()
{
}

main()
{
SomeShaderFunc1();
}
 
//shader2.fs <- Separate files

SomeShaderFunc2()
{
}

main()
{
SomeShaderFunc2();
}
 
//shader3.fs <- Separate files

SomeShaderFunc3()
{
}
 
main()
{
SomeShaderFunc3();
}

 

 

And that is one main function in your fragment shader(s) and one in your vertex shader(s).

If you mean to combine the results of multiple shader programs into one, I think you will have to render the mesh to a texture with each shader program, and then blend the results together (probably using another shader program).

Did you mean you want parts of your mesh to use one shader and parts of your mesh to use a different one? If that's the problem, then your only real solution is to organise your data in such a way that you can setup the first shader, then draw the required verts. Then setup the second shader and do another draw call.

      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
