Displaying a 2D Image

2 posts in this topic

Ok so I have a OpenGL application that displays a AVI, so far I have that working. Now I am trying to have it display a 2D Image. My program inceases "phase" everytime I press the enter key and when it is at phase 1, it should display a 2D image but it isnt working, 


This is my update function:

void Update (DWORD milliseconds)								// Perform Motion Updates Here
	if (g_keys->keyDown [VK_ESCAPE] == TRUE)					// Is ESC Being Pressed?
		TerminateApplication (g_window);						// Terminate The Program

	if (g_keys->keyDown [VK_F1] == TRUE)						// Is F1 Being Pressed?
		//ToggleFullscreen (g_window);							// Toggle Fullscreen Mode
	if(g_keys->keyDown [VK_RETURN] == TRUE)
	next+=milliseconds;											// Increase next Based On The Timer
	frame=next/mpf;												// Calculate The Current Frame

	if (frame>=lastframe)										// Are We At Or Past The Last Frame?
		frame=0;												// Reset The Frame Back To Zero (Start Of Video)
		next=0;													// Reset The Animation Timer (next)


This is my actual drawing


void Draw (void)												// Draw Our Scene
	glClear (GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT | GL_DEPTH_BUFFER_BIT);		// Clear Screen And Depth Buffer
	case 0:
	GrabAVIFrame(frame);										// Grab A Frame From The AVI

	if (bg)														// Is Background Visible?
		glLoadIdentity();										// Reset The Modelview Matrix
		glBegin(GL_QUADS);										// Begin Drawing The Background (One Quad)
			// Front Face
			glTexCoord2f(1.0f, 1.0f); glVertex3f( 15.3f,  8.3f, -20.0f);
			glTexCoord2f(0.0f, 1.0f); glVertex3f(-15.3f,  8.3f, -20.0f);
			glTexCoord2f(0.0f, 0.0f); glVertex3f(-15.3f, -8.3f, -20.0f);
			glTexCoord2f(1.0f, 0.0f); glVertex3f( 15.3f, -8.3f, -20.0f);
		glEnd();												// Done Drawing The Background
	case 1:

	glBindTexture( GL_TEXTURE_2D, texture );

      glBegin( GL_QUADS );
      glTexCoord2f(1.0f, 1.0f); glVertex3f( 15.3f,  8.3f, -20.0f);
			glTexCoord2f(0.0f, 1.0f); glVertex3f(-15.3f,  8.3f, -20.0f);
			glTexCoord2f(0.0f, 0.0f); glVertex3f(-15.3f, -8.3f, -20.0f);
			glTexCoord2f(1.0f, 0.0f); glVertex3f( 15.3f, -8.3f, -20.0f);

	glFlush ();													// Flush The GL Rendering Pipeline


Any help would be appreciated

Judging by the names of your code, phase is increased beyond 1 quite rapidly, since the name of that array suggests it is increased every frame as long as the key is held.

Only increase it when the key is pressed, not held.


Additionally, don’t call glFlush() ever unless you have a very specific reason to do so.

Also additionally too as well, don’t bother even learning immediate mode (glBegin()/glEnd()).  It should never have even existed in the first place and you are only wasting time your time by learning/using it, since you will end up learning/using VBO’s either way.  Why not skip to the end?

      I'm working on new asset importer ( based on COLLADA specs, the question is not about COLLADA directly
      also I'm working on a new renderer to render ( imported document.
      In the future I'll spend more time on this renderer of course, currently rendering imported (implemented parts) is enough for me
      assetkit imports COLLADA document (it will support glTF too),
      importing scene, geometries, effects/materials, 2d textures and rendering them seems working
      My actual confusion is about shaders. COLLADA has COMMON profile and GLSL... profiles,
      GLSL profile provides shaders for effects so I don't need to wory about them just compile, link, group them before render

      The problem occours in COMMON profile because I need to write shaders,
      Actually I wrote them for basic matrials and another version for 2d texture
      I would like to create multiple program but I am not sure how to split this this shader into smaller ones,

      Basic material version (only colors):
      Texture version:
      I used subroutines to bind materials, actually I liked it,
      In scene graph every node can have different program, and it switches between them if parentNode->program != node->program
      (I'll do scene graph optimizations e.g.  view frustum culling, grouping shaders... later)

      I'm going to implement transparency but I'm considering to create separate shaders,
      because default shader is going to be branching hell
      I can't generate shader for every node because I don't know how many node can be exist, there is no limit.
      I don't know how to write a good uber-shader for different cases:

      Here material struct:
      struct Material { ColorOrTexture emission; ColorOrTexture ambient; ColorOrTexture specular; ColorOrTexture reflective; ColorOrTexture transparent; ColorOrTexture diffuse; float shininess; float reflectivEyety; float transparency; float indexOfRefraction; }; ColorOrTexture could be color or 2d texture, if there would be single colorOrTex then I could split into two programs,
      Also I'm going to implement transparency, I am not sure how many program that I needed

      I'm considering to maintain a few default shaders for COMMON profile,
      1-no-texture, 2-one of colorOrTexture contains texture, 3-........

      Any advices in general or about how to optimize/split (if I need) these shaders which I provied as link?
      What do you think the shaders I wrote, I would like to write them without branching if posible,
      I hope I don't need to write 50+ or 100+ shaders, and 100+ default programs

      PS: These default shaders should render any document, they are not specific, they are general purpose...
             I'm compiling and linking default shaders when app launched

      Hi guys,
      I would like to contribute to a game project as a developer (open source possibly). I have some experiences in C/C++ in game development (perso projects). I don't know either unreal or unity but I have some knowledges in opengl, glsl and shading theory as I had some courses at university regarding to that. I have some knowledges in maths and basic in physics. I know a little how to use blender to do modelling, texturing and simple game assets (no characters, no animation no skinning/rigging). I have no game preferences but I like aventure game, dungeon crawler, platformers, randomly generated things. I know these kind of projects involve a lot of time and I'd be really to work on it but if there are no cleary defined specific design goals/stories/gameplay mechanics I would like to not be part of it x) and I would rather prefer a smaller but well defined project to work on that a huge and not 'finishable' one.

      Hi, I finally released KILL COMMANDO on gamejolt for free. It is a retro-funsplatter-shooter with C64 style. Give it a try.

      void TimerFunction(int value) {  glutPostRedisplay();  glutTimerFunc(1000, TimerFunction, 1); } void drawScene() {  glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT);      drawScene_bug();  TimerFunction(1);  eraseScene_bug(); // drawScene_bug_two(); // eraseScene_bug_two(); drawScene_ship(); drawScene_bullet();  glutSwapBuffers(); }
