OpenGL C++ Win32 && OpenGL 3.3 Not Updating FrameBuffer and or Device Context?

Recommended Posts

xXxRosexXxEE    112
Could someone tell me why the backbuffer or frontbuffer will not update the device context I've been stuck on this problem for 3days and It's driving me crazy!?
 
- Win7 64bit 
- OpenGL 3.311672 Compatibility Profile Context 
- Microsoft Visual Studio 2012  C++
 
The Pixel format is being assigned properly.
 
I've created the projections correctly,set the opengl clear color,swapped the buffers on the devicecontext in the "correct place".
 
What more does it want???......

In your DRAW_OPENGL routine, your glTranslatef call is a bug.  The first frame you'll translate by {3, 0, 0}, the second frame by {6, 0, 0}, the third frame by {9, 0, 0}, and so on.  This is because you don't load identity on your modelview matrix at the start of each frame, so each frame's translation is going to be in addition to the total translations for all previous frames.

I was aware of the glTranslatef(); being on a constant loop , I was more concerned about the actual device context not updating unless your implicating that glTranslatef(); is the reason for the lack of data rasterized on the device context? .

 

Upon testing my theory with glTranslatef(); causing the lack of device context updating is false so you must have been implicating one of the already known bugs in my code I thank you for telling me atleast.

Try:

hdc = GetDC( WindowHandle );

 
while( Running == true )
{
	while( PeekMessage( &Messages, NULL, 0, 0, PM_REMOVE ) )
	{
		TranslateMessage( &Messages );
		DispatchMessage( &Messages );
	}

	if( Messages.message == WM_QUIT )
	{
		Running = false;
	}
	else
	{
		DRAW_OPENGL();
		SwapBuffers( hdc );
	}
}

Your hdc was invalid, glClearColor requires floats in the range 0.0-1.0, and note PM_REMOVE in PeekMessage, and the removal of GetMessage.

 

 

 

Edit - I totally give up with the code formatting!!!

NEWS IN! 

 

I just got the clear screen color to show so at least that portion of the code works to fix it I just put the SwapBuffer and DRAW_OPENGL function within the begin paint and end paint function and it worked. 

 

The question now becomes how do I see the triangle hmmm...

If you do that you will have no frame rate. You had it right the first time except:

 

-You must handle WM_PAINT even if you dont actually do anything other than GetDC/ReelaseDC

-You have two LOCAL hdc variables and you assign the hdc is your window proc function so the copy in your Main function is still null when you try to SwapBuffers with it. Declare the hdc as a global (at the top) (this is considered bad practice but for now it will give a quick result.) Then remove the local declarations to it.

 

-Also I could not get your message pump to work so I replaced it with one along the lines as the FM above did. Using that one should be just fine.

My bad created a bug whilst fiddling with your code, your pump  seems to work ok

Thank you empirical2!

 

So now my context is created , my projection is fine "for now" and I've drawn the vertex positions then why hasn't the rasterization occurred

I see no triangle even with glTranslate3f(); commented out....????  also I'm able to make it so I can see GDI textout function which is funny lol.

Your triangle is tiny and off screen.

 

In orthro mode the coods are pixel coords.

 

Use glLoadIdentity() at the start of draw.

 

Use a big glTranslate (like 10,10,0)

and you should see a dot.

 

Alsoif  you can use TextOut then its becuase your screen is not being redrawn by OGL on a continuous bases because you have your swapbuffers function in your WM_PAINT case still?

Yes!!!! Who ever says getting a singular image onto the framebuffer is easy suck on it <3

Thank you so much I need to learn more of the mathematics behind projections do you have any good sources?

If this if any consolation...

 

John Carmack on twitter "Beginning gfx programmers take heart--even an expert can sometimes spend two hours trying to figure out WTF no triangles are being drawn."

 

This is a pretty good resource for modern Open GL - http://www.arcsynthesis.org/gltut/index.html, as is this - http://antongerdelan.net/opengl/

      I am developing my engine using the OpenGL 3.3 compatibility profile. It runs as expected on my NVIDIA card and on my Intel Card however when I tried it on an AMD setup it ran 3 times worse than on the other setups. Could this be a AMD driver thing or is this probably a problem with my OGL code? Could a different code standard create such bad performance?

      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
