Hello guys.I need help.Really.. I have homework about golden rectangle.I didn't know anything about this homework.If i won't do this i won't pass this lesson just help me please.

I need golden rectangle codes in opengl

I ATTACHED MY HOMEWORK

Forum rules are quite clear about homework: Its your job to do it! We may help, but we don't solve it for you. So ... what is your problem in detail? Understanding the golden ratio? Understanding the assignment text? Knowledge of OpenGL? Knowledge of GLUT?

(Is this sentence complete?) What have you done / tried so far?

dude..I'm new in this lesson in class.Just want golden rectangle codes likes

#include "stdafx.h"
#include <glut.h>
#include <math.h>

GLfloat G = (1 + (sqrt(float (5))))/2;

GLfloat gla1 = 0;
GLfloat glb1 = 0;
GLfloat gla2;
GLfloat glb2;

bool flip = true;

void genNextRect(void)
{
if (flip == false)
{
gla2 = gla2;
glb2 = gla2/G;

}
else
{
glb2 = glb2;
gla2 = gla2/G;

}
}

void init(void)
{
glClearColor(1.0, 1.0, 1.0, 0.0);
glMatrixMode(GL_PROJECTION);
glOrtho(0.0, 600.0, 0.0, 400.0, -15.0, 15.0);

glMatrixMode(GL_MODELVIEW);
}

void display()
{
glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT);
glLineWidth(4.0);

gla2 = glutGet(GLUT_WINDOW_WIDTH) - 10;
glb2 = glutGet(GLUT_WINDOW_HEIGHT) - 10;

glBegin(GL_LINE_LOOP);
glColor3f(0, 0, 1);
glVertex3f(gla1, glb1, 0);
glVertex3f(gla1, glb2, 0);
glVertex3f(gla2, glb2, 0);
glVertex3f(gla2, glb1, 0);
glEnd();
glutSwapBuffers();
}

void myReshape(GLsizei w, GLsizei h)
{
glViewport(0,0,w,h);
glMatrixMode(GL_PROJECTION);
gluOrtho2D(0.0, w, 0.0, h);
}

int main (int argc, char **argv)
{
glutInit(&argc, argv);
glutInitDisplayMode(GLUT_DOUBLE | GLUT_RGB);
glutInitWindowPosition(50, 50);
glutInitWindowSize(600, 500);
glutCreateWindow("");
glutDisplayFunc(display);
glutReshapeFunc(myReshape);
init();
glutMainLoop();

}

Okay, don't panic. It's simpler than it looks. Looking at [tt]genNextRect[/tt], it takes the width and height of a rectangle as global parameters, [tt]gla2[/tt] and [tt]glb2[/tt], and sets them to the next smallest golden rectangle. Note, [tt]genNextRect[/tt] assumes the [tt]gla2[/tt] and [tt]glb[/tt] are already a golden rectangle. This is done by taking one of the dimensions and dividing by the golden ratio, which will result in a smaller length. The [tt]flip[/tt] flag determine which dimension to shorten. It is the side with the longest length that is shortened. You will need to keep track of [tt]flip[/tt] such that, when [tt]genNextRect[/tt] is called, that the longest length of the rectangle is shortened. Alternatively, you could remove [tt]flip[/tt] entirely and change the condition in [tt]genNextRect[/tt] to select the longer edge. You may want to check that your rectangle's aspect ratio matches (or is close enough to) the golden ratio after calling [tt]genNextRect[/tt].

After you have called [tt]genNextRect[/tt] you will need to draw it as demonstrated in the [tt]glBegin[/tt]/[tt]glEnd[/tt] block in [tt]display[/tt]. The assignment requires you continue drawing rectangles until the rectangles are too small to display. So, all that's left to complete the assignment is finding the first golden rectangle in the screen and a loop that calls [tt]genNextRect[/tt] and draws the new rectangle until the rectangle is too small to display.

P.S.
Don't panic.

In pseudo-code, it'd look something like this:
display:
let rectangle be the size of the screen

begin drawing lines
while (area of rectangle) > 1 pixel:
rectangle = genNextRect rectangle

set rectangle color
draw each rectangle edge

end drawing lines

thank you very much. I will do this with your help :)

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
