OpenGL glGetError() INVALID_OPERATION (1282)

Recommended Posts

Vincent_M    969

OpenGL doesn't appear to want to render any triangles to the screen anymore. It'll render lines for my models' bones and normals just fine, however, but no triangles...

 

I checked glGetError() and it comes back with 1282, and a quick google reveals that this could be caused by some driver issues, however, I'm not sure. I was experimenting with some render target code before I noticed the issue, but again, I am getting some things to show up onscreen. I'm not even sure if error 1282 is the cause of this issue either. I've also tried restarting my computer.

 

Any ideas?

 

 

EDIT: A quicker looks reveals that the triangles are appearing, it's just that everything is rendered pure-black. There's one mesh that doesn't appear black, however.

glGetError returns the current error state of the OpenGL state machine. After calling glGetError, the error state reverts to GL_NO_ERROR and it will remain so until an OpenGL function is called which sets an error state.

If you find an unexpected error state you need to find the function(s) that set it. At some point glGetError is GL_NO_ERROR right before a GL call but not afterwards. This function is not used correctly.

It's probably not a bad idea to have (as a bare minimum solution) something like assert(glGetError() == GL_NO_ERROR); after each GL call. That will immediately complain about error conditions in debug builds but compile down to nothing in release builds.

Disable texturing before drawing non-textured things? And enable it.

 

glDisable(TEXTURE_2D);

 

But I guess we need more info.

most likely you forget to bind some necessary data to the current shader, pls post your code

render for debugging with glPolygonmode in wireframe, helps alot

(and dont use black as background color ;D )

I've got to admit that this was the first time I've actually used glGetError() to track stuff down, but once I realized it holds the last error, I kept running it through my initialization code until I found the method that does it. Calling glGetError() after each gl* call is expensive on OES implementations, so if I do that, I'll have to setup a bunch of #ifdef preprocessors so that I can run my builds w/o being bogged down.

 

As far as glDisable(GL_TEXTURE_2D), I've been checking that, but this where I think the issue could lie because I actually don't call commonly used glEnable/glDisable states directly. Instead, I have my own method that holds a synchronization variable to determine whether the state is already enabled before calling glEnable(), and vice-versa. This meant to cull unnecessary calls for OES builds. I think something could be wrong with glBindTexture because I modified one of my wrapper methods recently for that particular call. I'll also have to check glActiveTexture's wrapper function...

 

My models also don't use just textures directly, they use a Material object that is configured to work with the corresponding config of my uber shader built for that model to render. My Material class has some logic when uploading texture types that don't exist across each mesh in my model (uber shaders work at the per-model level for efficiency). So, if some parts of my model uses normal mapping, but others don't, instead of loading two shaders, I just load one with normal mapping, and for materials that don't have normal maps associated with it, it'll send a default 2x2 normal map. If I'm using diffuse maps, then they default meshes without ambient maps to a white texture.

 

These textured vertices aren't lit, however, and I know it's going through the lighting shader too, so I think it's some sort of GL state issues like you've all pointed out.

That is not entirely correct.

 

If you check http://www.opengl.org/sdk/docs/man/xhtml/glGetError.xml, you'll find that more than one error may be recorded by OpenGL, and that glGetError() should be called in a loop until GL_NO_ERROR is returned.

I've only had 1 OpenGL error at once, but I was thinking it acts more like a stack that'll show the most current out of a queue up to some defined max

      I assumed that if a shader is computationally expensive then the execution is just slower. But running the following GLSL FS instead just crashes
      void main() { float x = 0; float y = 0; int sum = 0; for (float x = 0; x < 10; x += 0.00005) { for (float y = 0; y < 10; y += 0.00005) { sum++; } } fragColor = vec4(1, 1, 1 , 1.0); } with unhandled exception in nvoglv32.dll. Are there any hard limits on the number of steps/time that a shader can take before it is shut down? I was thinking about implementing some time intensive computation in shaders where it would take on the order of seconds to compute a frame, is that possible? Thanks.

      There are studios selling applications which is just copying any 3Dgraphic content and regenerating into another new window. especially for CAVE Virtual reality experience. so that the user opens REvite or CAD or any other 3D applications and opens a model. then when the user selects the rendered window the VR application copies the 3D model information from the OpenGL window. 
      I got the clue that the VR application replaces the windows opengl32.dll file. how this is possible ... how can we copy the 3d content from the current OpenGL window.
      anyone, please help me .. how to go further... to create an application like VR CAVE. 
       
      Thanks

      hi all,

      i am trying to build an OpenGL 2D GUI system, (yeah yeah, i know i should not be re inventing the wheel, but this is for educational and some other purpose only),
      i have built GUI system before using 2D systems such as that of HTML/JS canvas, but in 2D system, i can directly match a mouse coordinates to the actual graphic coordinates with additional computation for screen size/ratio/scale ofcourse.
      now i want to port it to OpenGL, i know that to render a 2D object in OpenGL we specify coordiantes in Clip space or use the orthographic projection, now heres what i need help about.
      1. what is the right way of rendering the GUI? is it thru drawing in clip space or switching to ortho projection?
      2. from screen coordinates (top left is 0,0 nd bottom right is width height), how can i map the mouse coordinates to OpenGL 2D so that mouse events such as button click works? In consideration ofcourse to the current screen/size dimension.
      3. when let say if the screen size/dimension is different, how to handle this? in my previous javascript 2D engine using canvas, i just have my working coordinates and then just perform the bitblk or copying my working canvas to screen canvas and scale the mouse coordinates from there, in OpenGL how to work on a multiple screen sizes (more like an OpenGL ES question).
      lastly, if you guys know any books, resources, links or tutorials that handle or discuss this, i found one with marekknows opengl game engine website but its not free,
      Just let me know. Did not have any luck finding resource in google for writing our own OpenGL GUI framework.
      IF there are no any available online, just let me know, what things do i need to look into for OpenGL and i will study them one by one to make it work.
      thank you, and looking forward to positive replies.

      I have a few beginner questions about tesselation that I really have no clue.
      The opengl wiki doesn't seem to talk anything about the details.
       
      What is the relationship between TCS layout out and TES layout in?
      How does the tesselator know how control points are organized?
          e.g. If TES input requests triangles, but TCS can output N vertices.
             What happens in this case?
      In this article,
      http://www.informit.com/articles/article.aspx?p=2120983
      the isoline example TCS out=4, but TES in=isoline.
      And gl_TessCoord is only a single one.
      So which ones are the control points?
      How are tesselator building primitives?

      I've been developing a 2D Engine using SFML + ImGui.
      Here you can see an image
      The editor is rendered using ImGui and the scene window is a sf::RenderTexture where I draw the GameObjects and then is converted to ImGui::Image to render it in the editor.
      Now I need to create a 3D Engine during this year in my Bachelor Degree but using SDL2 + ImGui and I want to recreate what I did with the 2D Engine. 
      I've managed to render the editor like I did in the 2D Engine using this example that comes with ImGui. 
      3D Editor preview
      But I don't know how to create an equivalent of sf::RenderTexture in SDL2, so I can draw the 3D scene there and convert it to ImGui::Image to show it in the editor.
      If you can provide code will be better. And if you want me to provide any specific code tell me.
      Thanks!
