I am trying to scale into a base image multiple times. So I should be able to from a base image which has no scale factor (or scale factor of 1) scale into it and then from that scaled image generated from the base image I should be able to scale into it again and again and again. My problem is that I do not know how to calculate what the x and y coordinate of the mouse should be when trying to select a region from a scaled image. Here are some images that will describe my situation.

*Note that all the red coordinates are what the x and y coordinates should be but the mouse x and y coordinates are always from 0,0 to 640,480 ( the display dimensions )

This is my base image. Note the stating x and y coordinates.

This is the selection of the portion that will be scaled from the original x and y coordinates

This is the result of that first selection scaled

I want to be able to do another selection scale from this image but as I stated I don't know how to calculate what the x and y coordinates should translate to.

This is an example of what I should be able to do

Note that I am also translating the image to the center of the selection so that the scaled in image will be centered in the display.

This is what I am currently doing to scale from the base image to a scaled image. *note that this does not work when trying to scale and already scaled image as I said because I need to calculate what the actual x and y coordinates of the mouse should be. The first 4 lines is where I presume the calculations of the actual x and y coordinates should be.


// modify mouse coordinates to fit scaled image
_mouseStart.x = _mouseStart.x;
_mouseStart.y = _mouseStart.y;
_mouseEnd.x = _mouseEnd.x;
_mouseEnd.y = _mouseEnd.y;

// get width and height of selection
float ratio = (float) SCREEN_WIDTH / (float) SCREEN_HEIGHT;
float newFracWidth = fabs(_mouseEnd.x - _mouseStart.x);
float newFracHeight = newFracWidth / ratio;

if (newFracWidth > 0 && newFracHeight > 0)
{
Vertex starts;
Vertex ends;

if (_mouseStart.x > _mouseEnd.x)
{
starts.x = _mouseStart.x - newFracWidth;
starts.y = _mouseStart.y - newFracHeight;

ends.x = _mouseStart.x;
ends.y = _mouseStart.y;

_fracNormalCenter.x = _mouseStart.x - (newFracWidth / 2);
_fracNormalCenter.y = _mouseStart.y - (newFracHeight / 2);
}
else
{
starts.x = _mouseStart.x;
starts.y = _mouseStart.y;

ends.x = _mouseStart.x + newFracWidth;
ends.y = _mouseStart.y + newFracHeight;

_fracNormalCenter.x = _mouseStart.x + (newFracWidth / 2);
_fracNormalCenter.y = _mouseStart.y + (newFracHeight / 2);
}

_portionStart.x = starts.x;
_portionStart.y = starts.y;
_portionEnd.x = ends.x;
_portionEnd.y = ends.y;

cout << "glOrtho Dimension: : " << _portionStart.x << " , " << _portionStart.y << " -- " << _portionEnd.x << " , " << _portionEnd.y << endl;

starts = NormalToComplex(starts);
ends = NormalToComplex(ends);

_scaleFactor = (SCREEN_WIDTH / newFracWidth);

// set new complex display dimensions
_fracStart.x = starts.x;
_fracStart.y = starts.y;
_fracEnd.x = ends.x;
_fracEnd.y = ends.y;

_pointOffSet.x = (SCREEN_WIDTH / 2) - _fracNormalCenter.x;
_pointOffSet.y = (SCREEN_HEIGHT / 2) - _fracNormalCenter.y;

This is how I set the new scaled image

        glLoadIdentity();
glOrtho(_portionStart.x, _portionEnd.x, _portionEnd.y, _portionStart.y, 1, -1);

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);
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:

• I have this code below in both my vertex and fragment shader, however when I request glGetUniformLocation("Lights[0].diffuse") or "Lights[0].attenuation", it returns -1. It will only give me a valid uniform location if I actually use the diffuse/attenuation variables in the VERTEX shader. Because I use position in the vertex shader, it always returns a valid uniform location. I've read that I can share uniforms across both vertex and fragment, but I'm confused what this is even compiling to if this is the case.

#define NUM_LIGHTS 2
struct Light
{
vec3 position;
vec3 diffuse;
float attenuation;
};
uniform Light Lights[NUM_LIGHTS];

Hello,
I have a Bachelor project on topic "Implenet 3D Boid's algorithm in OpenGL". All OpenGL issues works fine for me, all rendering etc. But when I started implement the boid's algorithm it was getting worse and worse. I read article (http://natureofcode.com/book/chapter-6-autonomous-agents/) inspirate from another code (here: https://github.com/jyanar/Boids/tree/master/src) but it still doesn't work like in tutorials and videos. For example the main problem: when I apply Cohesion (one of three main laws of boids) it makes some "cycling knot". Second, when some flock touch to another it scary change the coordination or respawn in origin (x: 0, y:0. z:0). Just some streng things.
I followed many tutorials, change a try everything but it isn't so smooth, without lags like in another videos. I really need your help.
My code (optimalizing branch): https://github.com/pr033r/BachelorProject/tree/Optimalizing
Exe file (if you want to look) and models folder (for those who will download the sources):

Thanks for any help...

I am currently trying to implement shadow mapping into my project , but although i can render my depth map to the screen and it looks okay , when i sample it with shadowCoords there is no shadow.
Here is my light space matrix calculation
mat4x4 lightViewMatrix; vec3 sun_pos = {SUN_OFFSET * the_sun->direction[0], SUN_OFFSET * the_sun->direction[1], SUN_OFFSET * the_sun->direction[2]}; mat4x4_look_at(lightViewMatrix,sun_pos,player->pos,up); mat4x4_mul(lightSpaceMatrix,lightProjMatrix,lightViewMatrix); I will tweak the values for the size and frustum of the shadow map, but for now i just want to draw shadows around the player position
the_sun->direction is a normalized vector so i multiply it by a constant to get the position.
player->pos is the camera position in world space
the light projection matrix is calculated like this:
uniform mat4 light_space_matrix; void main() { gl_Position = light_space_matrix * transfMatrix * vec4(position, 1.0f); } Shadow fragment shader:
out float fragDepth; void main() { fragDepth = gl_FragCoord.z; } I am using deferred rendering so i have all my world positions in the g_positions buffer
