Hi there,

First of all sorry for the noobish question. I just want to render a model with a texture. Without the usage of  texture everything works fine, it I use a texture nothing shows up.

Here's the relevant code:

In initBuffers

	glGenBuffers(1, &vertexTextureCoordBuffer);
glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, vertexTextureCoordBuffer);

vertexTextField.itemSize=2;



Then somewhere

	GLuint tex=loadBMP_custom("mypath\green.bmp");



Then in drawScene

		glActiveTexture( GL_TEXTURE0 );
glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, tex);
glUniform1i(program.samplerUniform, 0);

glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, vertexTextureCoordBuffer);
glVertexAttribPointer(
program.textureCoordAttribute,
vertexTextField.itemSize,
GL_FLOAT,
GL_FALSE,
0,
(void*)0
);


Whereas load_BMP is something found on opegl-tutorials.com and here it is:



unsigned int dataPos;
unsigned int imageSize;
unsigned int width, height;
// Actual RGB data
unsigned char * data;

// Open the file
FILE * file = fopen(imagepath,"rb");
if (!file)							    {printf("%s could not be opened. Are you in the right directory ? Don't forget to read the FAQ !\n", imagepath); return 0;}

// If less than 54 byes are read, problem
printf("Not a correct BMP file\n");
return 0;
}
// A BMP files always begins with "BM"
printf("Not a correct BMP file\n");
return 0;
}
// Make sure this is a 24bpp file
if ( *(int*)&(header[0x1E])!=0  )         {printf("Not a correct BMP file\n");    return 0;}
if ( *(int*)&(header[0x1C])!=24 )         {printf("Not a correct BMP file\n");    return 0;}

// Some BMP files are misformatted, guess missing information
if (imageSize==0)    imageSize=width*height*3; // 3 : one byte for each Red, Green and Blue component
if (dataPos==0)      dataPos=54; // The BMP header is done that way

// Create a buffer
data = new unsigned char [imageSize];

// Read the actual data from the file into the buffer

// Everything is in memory now, the file wan be closed
fclose (file);

// Create one OpenGL texture
GLuint textureID;
glGenTextures(1, &textureID);

// "Bind" the newly created texture : all future texture functions will modify this texture
glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, textureID);

// Give the image to OpenGL
glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0,GL_RGB, width, height, 0, GL_BGR, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, data);

// OpenGL has now copied the data. Free our own version
delete [] data;

// Poor filtering, or ...
//glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_NEAREST);
//glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_NEAREST);

// ... nice trilinear filtering.
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_S, GL_REPEAT);
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_T, GL_REPEAT);
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_LINEAR_MIPMAP_LINEAR);
glGenerateMipmap(GL_TEXTURE_2D);

// Return the ID of the texture we just created
return textureID;
}


The shaders are: (I know that something is deprecated, but I need those things)


#version 330 core

precision mediump float;

varying vec3 vTransformedNormal;
varying vec2 vTextureCoord;

varying vec4 vPosition;

uniform vec3 uPointLightingLocation;
uniform vec3 uPointLightingDiffuseColor;
uniform vec3 uAmbientColor;
uniform vec3 uColor;

uniform sampler2D uSampler;

void main(void){

vec3 lightWeighting;
vec3 lightDirection = normalize(uPointLightingLocation - vPosition.xyz);
vec3 normal = normalize(vTransformedNormal);
float diffuseLightWeighting=max(dot(normal, lightDirection),0.0);
lightWeighting=uAmbientColor+uPointLightingDiffuseColor*diffuseLightWeighting;

vec4 fragmentColor=vec4(uColor.rgb,1.0);
fragmentColor = texture(uSampler, vTextureCoord);
gl_FragColor=vec4(fragmentColor.rgb*lightWeighting, fragmentColor.a);

}


#version 330 core

attribute vec2 aTextureCoord;
attribute vec3 aVertexPosition;
attribute vec3 aVertexNormal;

uniform mat3 uNMatrix;
uniform mat4 uPMatrix;
uniform mat4 uMVMatrix;

varying vec4 vPosition;
varying vec3 vTransformedNormal;
varying vec2 vTextureCoord;

void main(void){
vPosition=uMVMatrix*vec4(aVertexPosition, 1.0);
vTransformedNormal=uNMatrix*aVertexNormal;
vTextureCoord = aTextureCoord;

gl_Position=uPMatrix*vPosition;
}


Thank you so much :D

i just wonder where is glEnable(GL_TEXUTRE_2D);     ?

tell me if that works ;]

Nope, not working :(

Thank you anyway

What do you mean with "nothing shows up"? Does stuff render on the screen if you replace the output color with red for example? I'd suggest to run your program with gDebugger, you can check with it that your texture is loaded correctly and shaders linked. And does that "mypath\green.bmp" really work? \ is used for escape sequences, so I'd suggest you to change it to /

This is not used with shaders.

Some things you can try:

As Sponji said, this line is bad:

	GLuint tex=loadBMP_custom("mypath\green.bmp");


Instead of "mypath\green.bmp" use "mypath\\green.bmp" or "mypath/green.bmp" - the compiler will interpret "\g" as an escape sequence.  The fact that you don't appear ro be error checking this is not a good sign; at the very least you should be checking that you are actually getting a non-zero return value from your loadBMP_custom function.  I wonder what compiler you're using that you're not getting at least a warning from trying to use "\g"?

Reduce your fragment shader to an absolute minimum; i.e just a "gl_FragColor = texture(uSampler, vTextureCoord);" line.  If this works then your texture loading is OK and the problem is in your lighting code.  Note that I'm not recommending this as a solution - it's a testing/debugging step.

Double-check your source bitmap image.  Is it a power of two?  Is it's width * bpp a multiple of 4?  These are all things that can cause problems.

Sprinkle some "assert (glGetError () == GL_NO_ERROR);" calls at key points in your code - after texture loading, shader compilation, vertex setup, etc.  Run in the debugger and ensure that everything works without internal GL errors.

Yup, if I switch program to one with a fragment shader that output a color, it works.
The path string is a not the real one, it is correct in code

As I told to Sponji, the path is not written that way in code.
The same shader without the texture stuff, works fine. I've a specular code with everything that's the same, except for the texture stuff, so I'm pretty sure that my problem is there.
Oh and the .bmp is fine!
I'll play around with assert now

EDIT:

It appears that I'm a was a little to drowsy when I was writing my initShader function, I was searching for the texture coord attribute into the wrong program (I have 3 of them, one of those without texture).
Thank you for your support and I'm sorry for the lost of time Edited by cifa

• So it's been a while since I took a break from my whole creating a planet in DX11. Last time around I got stuck on fixing a nice LOD.
A week back or so I got help to find this:
https://github.com/sp4cerat/Planet-LOD
In general this is what I'm trying to recreate in DX11, he that made that planet LOD uses OpenGL but that is a minor issue and something I can solve. But I have a question regarding the code
He gets the position using this row
vec4d pos = b.var.vec4d["position"]; Which is then used further down when he sends the variable "center" into the drawing function:
if (pos.len() < 1) pos.norm(); world::draw(vec3d(pos.x, pos.y, pos.z));
Inside the draw function this happens:
draw_recursive(p3[0], p3[1], p3[2], center); Basically the 3 vertices of the triangle and the center of details that he sent as a parameter earlier: vec3d(pos.x, pos.y, pos.z)
Now onto my real question, he does vec3d edge_center[3] = { (p1 + p2) / 2, (p2 + p3) / 2, (p3 + p1) / 2 }; to get the edge center of each edge, nothing weird there.
But this is used later on with:
vec3d d = center + edge_center[i]; edge_test[i] = d.len() > ratio_size; edge_test is then used to evaluate if there should be a triangle drawn or if it should be split up into 3 new triangles instead. Why is it working for him? shouldn't it be like center - edge_center or something like that? Why adding them togheter? I asume here that the center is the center of details for the LOD. the position of the camera if stood on the ground of the planet and not up int he air like it is now.

Full code can be seen here:
https://github.com/sp4cerat/Planet-LOD/blob/master/src.simple/Main.cpp
If anyone would like to take a look and try to help me understand this code I would love this person. I'm running out of ideas on how to solve this in my own head, most likely twisted it one time to many up in my head

• I googled around but are unable to find source code or details of implementation.
What keywords should I search for this topic?
Things I would like to know:
A. How to ensure that partially covered pixels are rasterized?
Apparently by expanding each triangle by 1 pixel or so, rasterization problem is almost solved.
But it will result in an unindexable triangle list without tons of overlaps. Will it incur a large performance penalty?
How to ensure proper synchronizations in GLSL?
GLSL seems to only allow int32 atomics on image.
C. Is there some simple ways to estimate coverage on-the-fly?
In case I am to draw 2D shapes onto an exisitng target:
1. A multi-pass whatever-buffer seems overkill.
2. Multisampling could cost a lot memory though all I need is better coverage.
Besides, I have to blit twice, if draw target is not multisampled.

Hello

I am working on a recent project and I have been learning how to code in C# using OpenGL libraries for some graphics. I have achieved some quite interesting things using TAO Framework writing in Console Applications, creating a GLUT Window. But my problem now is that I need to incorporate the Graphics in a Windows Form so I can relate the objects that I render with some .NET Controls.

To deal with this problem, I have seen in some forums that it's better to use OpenTK instead of TAO Framework, so I can use the glControl that OpenTK libraries offer. However, I haven't found complete articles, tutorials or source codes that help using the glControl or that may insert me into de OpenTK functions. Would somebody please share in this forum some links or files where I can find good documentation about this topic? Or may I use another library different of OpenTK?

Thanks!

• Hello, I have been working on SH Irradiance map rendering, and I have been using a GLSL pixel shader to render SH irradiance to 2D irradiance maps for my static objects. I already have it working with 9 3D textures so far for the first 9 SH functions.
In my GLSL shader, I have to send in 9 SH Coefficient 3D Texures that use RGBA8 as a pixel format. RGB being used for the coefficients for red, green, and blue, and the A for checking if the voxel is in use (for the 3D texture solidification shader to prevent bleeding).
My problem is, I want to knock this number of textures down to something like 4 or 5. Getting even lower would be a godsend. This is because I eventually plan on adding more SH Coefficient 3D Textures for other parts of the game map (such as inside rooms, as opposed to the outside), to circumvent irradiance probe bleeding between rooms separated by walls. I don't want to reach the 32 texture limit too soon. Also, I figure that it would be a LOT faster.
Is there a way I could, say, store 2 sets of SH Coefficients for 2 SH functions inside a texture with RGBA16 pixels? If so, how would I extract them from inside GLSL? Let me know if you have any suggestions ^^.

EDIT: I thought this was restricted to Attribute-Created GL contexts, but it isn't, so I rewrote the post.
Hey guys, whenever I call SwapBuffers(hDC), I get a crash, and I get a "Too many posts were made to a semaphore." from Windows as I call SwapBuffers. What could be the cause of this?
Update: No crash occurs if I don't draw, just clear and swap.
