glTexSubImage2D, subtexture not rendering correct.

7 posts in this topic

Hi guys!

I have a little problem with my program, when i try to set a sub texture to my color map on my terrain it works just as i want it to except it draws the sub texture all wrong. So I am not quite sure how to proceed at the moment so any help is greatly appreciated :)

void UpdateTexture::CreateSubTexture(glm::vec2 position, unsigned char * imageData)
{
    glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 3);
    glTexSubImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, position.x, position.y, 128,
                    128 , GL_RGBA,
                    GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, imageData);
}

the sub texture is an all purple square at 128x128 for testing purposes, but as you can see in the picture that is not what i am getting at all.

 

thanks for your time!

Either the existing texture is a different format (than GL_RGBA) or your data you are passing in is formatted wrong.

glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0,GL_RGB, width, height, 0, GL_BGR, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, data);

that is how i load in my color map, so i tried using GL_RGB but with the same result.

 

not quite sure how my data could be formatted wrong, all i do is instead of binding it to a texture in my textureLoader i save it instead as

unsigned char * imageData;
if(strcmp (imagepath,"test.bmp"))
    {
        imageData = data;  
    }

edit:might have found an error on my part...

which is what I use later in my other function.

thanks for your answer, and just ask if you need more info.

It seems it all had to do with my new bmp i tried to load in,

I  tried it again with a texture I know work and it´s all fine, except the color is wrong and the color of the color map is seen in sharp angles.

Looks like the color channels are switched. The code in your first post tells OpenGL that the color is in RGBA format, but the bitmap is probably stored in BGRA format.

thank you! :D

when i loaded it in GL_BGR everything works just fine :)

the only problem is the one i had before with the underlaying color of the colormap still showing in sharp angles, see the grass picture.

never mind what i said

I don't seem to have the problem when using other textures so that is not an issue:)

thanks everyone for your help!
