OpenGL glOrtho not working?

Recommended Posts

blueshogun96    2264

I started writing a totally new OpenGL  game for iOS a few days ago, and I cannot get 2D working to save my life.  3D works fine (using a customized implementation of gluPerspective), but 2D just won't.  I've done a 2D game for iOS before, and I didn't have any problems.  Now, no matter what I do, nothing renders.

 

My code:

 

Initialization:

// 2. Create a Context
    EAGLContext *context = [[[EAGLContext alloc] initWithAPI:kEAGLRenderingAPIOpenGLES1] autorelease];
    [EAGLContext setCurrentContext:context];
    
    // 3. Create a View
    GLView *glView = [[[GLView alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectMake(0, 0, 320, 480)] autorelease];
    [self.view addSubview:glView];
    
    // 4. Create a Renderbuffer
    GLuint renderbuffer;
    glGenRenderbuffers(1, &renderbuffer);
    glBindRenderbuffer(GL_RENDERBUFFER, renderbuffer);
    [context renderbufferStorage:GL_RENDERBUFFER fromDrawable:(CAEAGLLayer*)glView.layer];
    
    // 5. Create a Framebuffer
    GLuint framebuffer;
    glGenFramebuffers(1, &framebuffer);
    glBindFramebuffer(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, framebuffer);
    glRenderbufferStorage(GL_RENDERBUFFER, GL_RGBA8_OES, 320, 480 );
    glFramebufferRenderbuffer(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, GL_COLOR_ATTACHMENT0, GL_RENDERBUFFER, renderbuffer);
    
    GLuint depthBuffer;
    glGenRenderbuffers( 1, &depthBuffer );
    glBindRenderbuffer( GL_RENDERBUFFER, depthBuffer );
    glRenderbufferStorage( GL_RENDERBUFFER, GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT16, 320, 480 );
    glFramebufferRenderbuffer( GL_FRAMEBUFFER, GL_DEPTH_ATTACHMENT, GL_RENDERBUFFER, depthBuffer );
    
    glBindRenderbuffer( GL_RENDERBUFFER, renderbuffer );
    
    GLenum status = glCheckFramebufferStatus( GL_FRAMEBUFFER );
    if( status != GL_FRAMEBUFFER_COMPLETE )
    {
        NSLog( @"Error completing FBO! %x", status );
    }
    
    glEnable( GL_DEPTH_TEST );
    glDepthFunc( GL_LEQUAL );
    glClearDepthf( 1.0f );
    
    glDisable( GL_CULL_FACE );
    glDisable( GL_LIGHT0 );

 

 

Rendering:

-(void) drawView:(id)sender
{
    glViewport( 0, 0, 320, 480 );
    glMatrixMode( GL_PROJECTION );
    glOrthof( 0, 320, 0, 480, -1, 1);
    
    glClearColor( 0.0f, 0.5f, 0.0f, 1.0f );
    glClear( GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT | GL_DEPTH_BUFFER_BIT );
    glMatrixMode( GL_MODELVIEW );
    glLoadIdentity();
  
    draw_quad( 0, 50, 50, 300, 300 );
    
    [[EAGLContext currentContext] presentRenderbuffer:GL_RENDERBUFFER];
}

void draw_quad( GLuint texture, float x, float y, float w, float h )
{
	float vertices[] = { x, y, x+w, y, x+w, y+h, x, y+h };
	float tex[] = { 0.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f };

	glBindTexture( GL_TEXTURE_2D, texture );

	glTexCoordPointer( 2, GL_FLOAT, 0, tex );
	glVertexPointer( 2, GL_FLOAT, sizeof(float)*2, vertices );
	glDrawArrays( GL_TRIANGLE_FAN, 0, 4 );

	spf++;
}

 

Majority of this code I'm reusing, but I don't see what the problem is.  Arrgh, iOS is a complete NIGHTMARE to work with (problems at every corner for me).  I hate to say it, but PS2 was more straight forward than iOS.  This really sucks.  Any ideas?  Thanks.

OpenGL/OpenGL ES are the pain, not iOS.  Bind-to-modify is a design flaw from the early 90’s that they have refused to fix for compatibility reasons.

Your own headaches are compounded by the fact that you are using OpenGL ES 1.0 instead of OpenGL ES 2.0.  Learning how to handle OpenGL’s quirks, such as modifying your lighting system to deal with the fact that they modify the lights you set by the current model-view matrix, and only once (sigh), is a lot harder than learning shaders.  No joke.

 

Anyway, firstly you need to disable lighting.  You didn’t call ::glDisable( GL_LIGHTING ).

 

Secondly, you should be glad you are on iOS because there is a large toolset to help you debug this.

Firstly, only code using a real device.  This is a simple fact of life.

Secondly, once you are on a real device, you can take a screenshot and step through to see what is happening.

I beg to differ.  I've never had any serious problems out of OpenGL until I started on iOS.  I'm using OpenGL ES 1.1 simply because I don't have an OpenGL ES 2.0 compatible iOS device (can't afford one atm).  I tried disabling lighting with glDisable( GL_LIGHTING ); still doesn't work.  Even when I got 3D working, it didn't make a difference.  And whether I use a real device or the simulator, I get the same results.  I still don't see what I'm doing wrong here.

The same code on any other device will yield the same results.  The problem is your code, not iOS.

And I told you to use a real device for debugging purposes.

I told you to Capture an OpenGL ES Frame.

As in, run the project on a real device, go to Xcode, select Product->Debug->Capture OpenGL ES Frame.

Now you can single-step through every OpenGL ES call, or just the render calls, and see everything about the context and look for what could be wrong.

 

Look:

frame_capture.png

 

You should count your blessings that you are on iOS.  There is no such feature on Android™.

If you can’t figure it out on your own after doing this, go to the draw call that you think should be drawing a quad and post a screenshot.

Here's your problem:

 

    glMatrixMode( GL_PROJECTION );
    glOrthof( 0, 320, 0, 480, -1, 1);

 

glOrtho doesn't load the generated ortho matrix onto the stack; what it does is take the current matrix and multiplies it by the generated ortho matrix (http://www.khronos.org/opengles/sdk/1.1/docs/man/).  So instead you do:

 

    glMatrixMode( GL_PROJECTION );
    glLoadIdentity ()
    glOrthof( 0, 320, 0, 480, -1, 1);

 

And it works!

      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

      I would like to introduce the first version of my physically based camera rendering library, written in C++, called PhysiCam.
      Physicam is an open source OpenGL C++ library, which provides physically based camera rendering and parameters. It is based on OpenGL and designed to be used as either static library or dynamic library and can be integrated in existing applications.
       
      The following features are implemented:
      Physically based sensor and focal length calculation Autoexposure Manual exposure Lense distortion Bloom (influenced by ISO, Shutter Speed, Sensor type etc.) Bokeh (influenced by Aperture, Sensor type and focal length) Tonemapping  
      You can find the repository at https://github.com/0x2A/physicam
       
      I would be happy about feedback, suggestions or contributions.
