I'm officially stumped. I've tried any and every way there is, even the bad ones.

I have a special setup where I write the the ACTUAL view-space depth from my shaders to a texture, so what we have is (R, G, B, DEPTH). Texture is 16f so no issues with precision. Especially considering I'm using this value in many other places.

 

Anyways,

following the article here: http://www.opengl.org/wiki/Compute_eye_space_from_window_space

or just about any other article on the subject, anything I do works. Yes, it works, but the edges are... imprecise. Basically, the further from the center of the camera, the worse it gets. But not by much.

 

The eye_direction vector is set up like this, in the fullscreen vertex shader:

eye_direction = vec4(gl_Position.xy * nearPlaneHalfSize, -1.0, 1.0);

or, in other words

eye_direction = vec4((texCoord.xy * 2.0 - 1.0) * nearPlaneHalfSize, -1.0, 1.0);

if you will.

 

nearPlaneHalfSize is as per the article:

        this->FOV   = config.get("frustum.fov", 61.0f);

        ...

        float halfTan = tan(this->FOV * pio180 / 2.0);
        nearPlaneHalfSize = vec2(halfTan * wnd.SA, halfTan);

And in the fragment shader, reconstructing coordinates as seen from camera:

    // reconstruct eye coordinates
    vec4 cofs = eye_direction * matview; // transpose mult
    cofs.xyz *= depth * ZFAR;

Now all we have to do is remove camera position and that's it.

Except.. It's ALMOST there.

 

Looking at other peoples reconstructions, I see that this works beautifully.

So, considering that my depth value is in view-space, is this the problem?

Because I believe depth-texture values usually are flat against the camera plane, while my depth value is.. non-flat tongue.png

First try to increase the precision of the depth buffer. 16f is really not much (I too, use 16f render targets). Either use a 32f depth buffer, or use atleast two 16f channels. Use some simple encoding/decoding for 2 channels, something like this:

vec2 encode(float depth) {
   vec2 result = vec2(depth)*2048.0;
   result.x = floor(result.x);
   result.y = fract(result.y);
   return result;
}
float decode(vec2 input) {
   return dot(input,vec2(1.0/2048.0));
}

You can combine the 2 channel depth with a 2 channel, compressed normal buffer into a single 4x16f render target.

thre are two types of depth, the z depth and w depth. Ones is post non lineared, the w is linear (z done non linear by linear w ).

Try to multiply view matrix with projection matrix by hand and see the 4th row of it - the w construting row. You will notice it just contains third view matrix row in the very multiplied matrix 4th row:

 

view matrix   projection matrix

[a,b,c,p1    ]  

[a,b,c,p2    ]

[vx,vy,vz,vp]         BLA

[0,0,0,1      ]         [0,0,1,0]

 

if we consider column matricies and multiplication order (A*B)(v)=B(A(v)) , then we multiply view column with projection row.

 

first component in 4th row of result:

[a,a,vx,0]*[0,0,1,0]=vx

 

second component in 4th row of result:

[b,b,vy,0]*[0,0,1,0]=vy

 

third component in 4th row of result:

[c,c,vz,0]*[0,0,1,0]=vz

 

fourth component in 4th row of result:

[p1,p2,vp,1]*[0,0,1,0]=vp

 

thus, bottom 4th row of view*projection matrix is actualy the third row of view matrix.

 

If a vector gets tranformed by this matrix, it actualy remembers its view space z in final w component. That is  the linear z, the w komponent, and by help of device z,near,far, view z, - the final  vector is post devided.

I might just implement that, because that would leave me 2 extra channels i could put stuff in.. I guess

 

The thing is though, the view range isn't all that big. I think 1024 at the highest setting I've tried.

My "precision loss", as in, what I can visibly see is wrong, is coming from window-space. Basically the further the fragment (x, y) is away from center of screen, the worse it gets, again, not by much though.

It's enough to derail my super-cheap ground fog project. I don't have nearly enough GPU or CPU resources to do anything fancy in my game, so I have to use whatever I have left.

 

The fog is basically just reconstructing the (x, y, z), then applying a 2x simplex3D and hoping it looks nice.

The 3D nature of the thing does make for some general issues, but they are not related. I have verified the problem by scaling the (x, y, z) so that I can see colors at various angles and fragment positions, and from there verified that indeed the reconstruction is not completely right.

 

All this still doesn't mean my depth value is not simple precision loss. There may have been a time where I believed the implausible to be impossible. Not so much anymore.

 

EDIT: An additional question.

Are renderbuffer depthbuffers still faster than depth textures? Because I gained a (slight) speed-up from not using a depth-texture in my FBOs.

how damn, I realy didnt wanna kill a man ()

 

u close though

 

 

proj*(view*(v))=v...... then v*1.0/v.w .. rasterized fed coordinates to depth test and rasterizer displayed

(world*view*proj)*(objectspaceV)=(raster)?

(raster?)*1.0/raster.W= depth tested pixel function fed component to pixel function

 

 

you may test it be reconstructing texture coordinte reading Gbuffer rendered very (right?)

I don't read from a depth texture, JohnnyCode (if I understoof you right).

 

But... In the end I gave up, and just used shitty depth texture after all. Now I lost alot FPS because depth-renderbuffer is just alot faster.

It's alot of FPS to gain by not using depth-renderbuffer when rendering basically the entire scene.

 

Anyways,

in conclusion, without raymarching the "ground" fog, it won't look all that good. sad.png

 

I ended up combining cheap-ass fog-depth (intersection with fog-height and ground) + simplex3d + smoothing top and bottom.

      Hey
      My laptop recently decided to die, so Ive been transferring my project to my work laptop just to get it up to date, and commit it. I was banging my head against the wall all day, as my textures where not displaying in my program- I was getting no errors and no indication of why it was occurring so I have been just trying to figure it out- I know the image loading was working ok, as im using image data elsewhere, I was pretty confident that the code was fine also, as ive never had an issue with displaying textures before, so I thought it might be the drivers on this laptop, (my old one was just using the built in IntelHD, while this laptop has a NVIDIA graphics card) but all seems to be up to date.
      Below are my basic shaders:
      Vertex Shader
      #version 330 core layout(location = 0) in vec3 position; layout(location = 1) in vec3 color; layout(location = 2) in vec3 normal; layout(location = 3) in vec2 texCoord; uniform mat4 Projection; uniform mat4 Model; out vec3 Color; out vec3 Normal; out vec2 TexCoord; void main() { gl_Position = Projection * Model * vec4( position, 1.0 ); Color = color; Normal = normal; TexCoord = vec2( texCoord.x, texCoord.y); } Fragment Shader
      #version 330 core in vec3 Color; in vec3 Normal; in vec2 TexCoord; uniform sampler2D textureData; void main() { vec4 textureColor = texture( textureData, TexCoord ); vec4 finalColor = textureColor * vec4( Color, 1.0f); gl_FragColor = finalColor; } Calling Code
      glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE0); glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, textureID); glUniform1i(glGetUniformLocation(shaderID, "textureData"), textureID); Now this is the part i dont understand, I worked through my program, until I got to the above 'Calling Code'. This just displays a black texture.. my original issue. Out of desperation, I just tried changing the name in glGetUniformLocation from "textureData" to "textureData_invalid" to see if my error checks would through up something, but in actual fact, it is now displaying the texture as expected. Can anyone fathom a guess as too why this is occurring.. im assuming the random text is just picking up the correct location by c++ witchcraft, but why is the original one not getting picked up correctly and/or not working as expected
      I realize more code is probably needed to see how it all hangs together.. but it seems to come down to this as the issue

      Hello. So far i got decently looking 3d scene. I also managed to render a truetype font, on my way to implementing gui (windows, buttons and textboxes). There are several issues i am facing, would love to hear your feedback.
      1) I render text using atlas with VBO containing x/y/u/v of every digit in the atlas (calculated basing on x/y/z/width/height/xoffset/yoffset/xadvance data in binary .fnt format file, screenshot 1). I generated a Comic Sans MS with 32 size and times new roman with size 12 (screenshot 2 and 3). The first issue is the font looks horrible when rescaling. I guess it is because i am using fixed -1 to 1 screen space coords. This is where ortho matrix should be used, right?
      2) Rendering GUI. Situation is similar to above. I guess the widgets should NOT scale when scaling window, am i right? So what am i looking for is saying "this should be always in the middle, 200x200 size no matter the display window xy", and "this should stick to the bottom left corner". Is ortho matrix the cure for all such problems?
      3) The game is 3D but i have to go 2D to render static gui elements over the scene - and i want to do it properly! At the moment i am using matrix 3x3 for 2d transformations and vec3 for all kinds of coordinates. In shaders tho i technically still IS 3D. I have to set all 4 x y z w of the gl_Position while it would be much much more conventient to... just do the maths in 2d space. Can i achieve it somehow?
      4) Text again. I am kind of confused what is the reason of artifacts in Times New Roman font displaying (screenshot 1). I render from left to right, letter after letter. You can clearly see that letters on the right (so the ones rendered after ones on the left are covered by the previous one). I was toying around with blending options but no luck. I do not support kerning at the moment but that's definitely not the cause of error. The display of the small font looks dirty aliased too. I am knd of confused how to interpret the integer data and how should be scaled/adapted to the screen view. Is it just store the data as constant size and again - use ortho matrix?
      Thanks in advance for all your ideas and suggestions!

      Hello, everyone! I hope my problem isn't too 'beginnerish'. I'm doing research on motion synthesis now, trying to implement the Deep Mimic paper (DeepMimic) by BINPENG XUE, in this paper, I need to first retarget character A's motion to another character B to make the reference motion clips for character B, since we don't have character B‘s reference motion. The most important thing is that in the paper, the author copied character A's joint's rotation with respective to joint's local coordinate system (not the parent) to character B. In my personal understanding, the joint's rotation with respective to joint's local coordinate system is something like that in the attached photo, where for the Elbow joint, i need to get the Elbow's rotation in the elbow's local coordinate system (i'm very grateful for you to share your ideas if i have misunderstanding about it 🙂)
      I have searched many materials on the internet about how to extract the local joint's information from FBX, the most relative one i found is the pivot rotation( and geometric transformation, object offset transformation). I'm a beginner in computer graphics, and i'm confused about whether the pivot rotation( or geometric transformation, object offset transformation) is exactly the joint's local rotation i'm seeking? I hope someone that have any ideas can help me, I'd be very grateful for any pointers in the right direction. Thanks in advance!

      Hi, I'm a Multimedia Engineering student. I am about to finish my dergree and I'm already thinking about what topic to cover in my final college project.
      I'm interested in the procedural animation with c++ and OpenGL of creatures, something like a spider for example. Can someone tell me what are the issues I should investigate to carry it out? I understand that it has some dependence on artificial intelligence but I do not know to what extent. Can someone help me to find information about it? Thank you very much.

      So, i'm still on my quest to unterstanding the intricacies of HDR and implementing this into my engine. Currently i'm at the step to implementing tonemapping. I stumbled upon this blogposts:
      http://filmicworlds.com/blog/filmic-tonemapping-operators/
      http://frictionalgames.blogspot.com/2012/09/tech-feature-hdr-lightning.html
      and tried to implement some of those mentioned tonemapping methods into my postprocessing shader.
      The issue is that none of them creates the same results as shown in the blogpost which definitely has to do with the initial range in which the values are stored in the HDR buffer. For simplicity sake i store the values between 0 and 1 in the HDR buffer (ambient light is 0.3, directional light is 0.7)
      This is the tonemapping code:
      vec3 Uncharted2Tonemap(vec3 x) { float A = 0.15; float B = 0.50; float C = 0.10; float D = 0.20; float E = 0.02; float F = 0.30; return ((x*(A*x+C*B)+D*E)/(x*(A*x+B)+D*F))-E/F; } This is without the uncharted tonemapping:
      This is with the uncharted tonemapping:
      Which makes the image a lot darker.
      The shader code looks like this:
      void main() { vec3 color = texture2D(texture_diffuse, vTexcoord).rgb; color = Uncharted2Tonemap(color); //gamma correction (use only if not done in tonemapping code) color = gammaCorrection(color); outputF = vec4(color,1.0f); } Now, from my understanding is that tonemapping should bring the range down from HDR to 0-1.
      But the output of the tonemapping function heavily depends on the initial range of the values in the HDR buffer. (You can't expect to set the sun intensity the first time to 10 and the second time to 1000 and excpect the same result if you feed that into the tonemapper.) So i suppose that this also depends on the exposure which i have to implement?
      To check this i plotted the tonemapping curve:
      You can see that the curve goes only up to around to a value of 0.21 (while being fed a value of 1) and then basically flattens out. (which would explain why the image got darker.)
       
      My guestion is: In what range should the values in the HDR buffer be which then get tonemapped? Do i have to bring them down to a range of 0-1 by multiplying with the exposure?
      For example, if i increase the values of the light by 10 (directional light would be 7 and ambient light 3) then i would need to divide HDR values by 10 in order to get a value range of 0-1 which then could be fed into the tonemapping curve. Is that correct?

      i am reading this book : link
      in the OpenGL Rendering Pipeline section there is a picture like this: link
      but the question is this i dont really understand why it is necessary to turn pixel data in to fragment and then fragment into pixel could please give me a source or a clear Explanation that why it is necessary ? thank you so mu

      I'm using the OPENGL with eclipse+JOGL.
      My goal is to create movement of the camera and the player.
      I create main class, which create some box in 3D and hold 
      an object of PlayerAxis.
      I create PlayerAxis class which hold the axis of the player.
      If we want to move the camera, then in the main class I call to 
      the func "cameraMove"(from PlayerAxis) and it update the player axis.
      That's work good.
      The problem start if I move the camera on 2 axis, 
      for example if I move with the camera right(that's on the y axis)
      and then down(on the x axis) -
      in some point the move front is not to the front anymore..
      In order to move to the front, I do
      player.playerMoving(0, 0, 1);
      And I learn that in order to keep the front move, 
      I need to convert (0, 0, 1) to the player axis, and then add this.
      I think I dont do the convert right.. 
      I will be glad for help!

      Here is part of my PlayerAxis class:
       
      //player coordinate float x[] = new float[3]; float y[] = new float[3]; float z[] = new float[3]; public PlayerAxis(float move_step, float angle_move) { x[0] = 1; y[1] = 1; z[2] = -1; step = move_step; angle = angle_move; setTransMatrix(); } public void cameraMoving(float angle_step, String axis) { float[] new_x = x; float[] new_y = y; float[] new_z = z; float alfa = angle_step * angle; switch(axis) { case "x": new_z = addVectors(multScalar(z, COS(alfa)), multScalar(y, SIN(alfa))); new_y = subVectors(multScalar(y, COS(alfa)), multScalar(z, SIN(alfa))); break; case "y": new_x = addVectors(multScalar(x, COS(alfa)), multScalar(z, SIN(alfa))); new_z = subVectors(multScalar(z, COS(alfa)), multScalar(x, SIN(alfa))); break; case "z": new_x = addVectors(multScalar(x, COS(alfa)), multScalar(y, SIN(alfa))); new_y = subVectors(multScalar(y, COS(alfa)), multScalar(x, SIN(alfa))); } x = new_x; y = new_y; z = new_z; normalization(); } public void playerMoving(float x_move, float y_move, float z_move) { float[] move = new float[3]; move[0] = x_move; move[1] = y_move; move[2] = z_move; setTransMatrix(); float[] trans_move = transVector(move); position[0] = position[0] + step*trans_move[0]; position[1] = position[1] + step*trans_move[1]; position[2] = position[2] + step*trans_move[2]; } public void setTransMatrix() { for (int i = 0; i < 3; i++) { coordiTrans[0][i] = x[i]; coordiTrans[1][i] = y[i]; coordiTrans[2][i] = z[i]; } } public float[] transVector(float[] v) { return multiplyMatrixInVector(coordiTrans, v); }  
      and in the main class i have this:
       
      public void keyPressed(KeyEvent e) { if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_ESCAPE) { System.exit(0); //player move } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_W) { //front //moveAmount[2] += -0.1f; player.playerMoving(0, 0, 1); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_S) { //back //moveAmount[2] += 0.1f; player.playerMoving(0, 0, -1); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_A) { //left //moveAmount[0] += -0.1f; player.playerMoving(-1, 0, 0); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_D) { //right //moveAmount[0] += 0.1f; player.playerMoving(1, 0, 0); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_E) { //moveAmount[0] += 0.1f; player.playerMoving(0, 1, 0); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_Q) { //moveAmount[0] += 0.1f; player.playerMoving(0, -1, 0); //camera move } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_I) { //up player.cameraMoving(1, "x"); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_K) { //down player.cameraMoving(-1, "x"); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_L) { //right player.cameraMoving(-1, "y"); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_J) { //left player.cameraMoving(1, "y"); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_O) { //right round player.cameraMoving(-1, "z"); } else if (e.getKeyCode()== KeyEvent.VK_U) { //left round player.cameraMoving(1, "z"); } }

      So, i'm currently trying to implement an SSAO shader from THIS tutorial and i'm running into a few issues here.
      Now, this SSAO method requires view space positions and normals. I'm storing the normals in my deferred renderer in world-space so i had to do a conversion and reconstruct the position from the depth buffer.
      And something there goes horribly wrong (which has probably to do with worldspace to viewspace transformations).
      (here is the full shader source code if someone wants to take a look at it)
      Now, i suspect that the normals are the culprit.
      vec3 normal = ((uNormalViewMatrix*vec4(normalize(texture2D(sNormals, vTexcoord).rgb),1.0)).xyz); "sNormals" is a 2D texture which stores the normals in world space in a RGB FP16 buffer.
      Now i can't use the camera viewspace matrix to transform the normals into viewspace as the cameras position isn't set at (0,0,0), thus skewing the result.
      So what i did is to create a new viewmatrix specifically for this normal without the position at vec3(0,0,0);
      //"camera" is the camera which was used for rendering the normal buffer renderer.setUniform4m(ressources->shaderSSAO->getUniform("uNormalViewMatrix"), glmExt::createViewMatrix(glm::vec3(0,0,0),camera.getForward(),camera.getUp())//parameters are (position,forwardVector,upVector) ); Though i have the feeling this is the wrong approach. Is this right or is there a better/correct way of transforming a world space normal into viewspace?

      Hi,
      I'm trying mix two textures using own shader system, but I have a problem (I think) with uniforms.
      Code: https://github.com/HawkDeath/shader/tree/test
      To debug I use RenderDocs, but I did not receive good results. In the first attachment is my result, in the second attachment is what should be.
      PS. I base on this tutorial https://learnopengl.com/Getting-started/Textures.
