      Good evening everyone!

      I was wondering if there is something equivalent of  GL_NV_blend_equation_advanced for AMD?
      Basically I'm trying to find more compatible version of it.

      Thank you!

      Hello guys, 
       
      Please tell me! 
      How do I know? Why does wavefront not show for me?
      I already checked I have non errors yet.
      using OpenTK; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.IO; using System.Text; namespace Tutorial_08.net.sourceskyboxer { public class WaveFrontLoader { private static List<Vector3> inPositions; private static List<Vector2> inTexcoords; private static List<Vector3> inNormals; private static List<float> positions; private static List<float> texcoords; private static List<int> indices; public static RawModel LoadObjModel(string filename, Loader loader) { inPositions = new List<Vector3>(); inTexcoords = new List<Vector2>(); inNormals = new List<Vector3>(); positions = new List<float>(); texcoords = new List<float>(); indices = new List<int>(); int nextIdx = 0; using (var reader = new StreamReader(File.Open("Contents/" + filename + ".obj", FileMode.Open), Encoding.UTF8)) { string line = reader.ReadLine(); int i = reader.Read(); while (true) { string[] currentLine = line.Split(); if (currentLine[0] == "v") { Vector3 pos = new Vector3(float.Parse(currentLine[1]), float.Parse(currentLine[2]), float.Parse(currentLine[3])); inPositions.Add(pos); if (currentLine[1] == "t") { Vector2 tex = new Vector2(float.Parse(currentLine[1]), float.Parse(currentLine[2])); inTexcoords.Add(tex); } if (currentLine[1] == "n") { Vector3 nom = new Vector3(float.Parse(currentLine[1]), float.Parse(currentLine[2]), float.Parse(currentLine[3])); inNormals.Add(nom); } } if (currentLine[0] == "f") { Vector3 pos = inPositions[0]; positions.Add(pos.X); positions.Add(pos.Y); positions.Add(pos.Z); Vector2 tc = inTexcoords[0]; texcoords.Add(tc.X); texcoords.Add(tc.Y); indices.Add(nextIdx); ++nextIdx; } reader.Close(); return loader.loadToVAO(positions.ToArray(), texcoords.ToArray(), indices.ToArray()); } } } } } And It have tried other method but it can't show for me.  I am mad now. Because any OpenTK developers won't help me.
      Please help me how do I fix.

      And my download (mega.nz) should it is original but I tried no success...
      - Add blend source and png file here I have tried tried,.....  
       
      PS: Why is our community not active? I wait very longer. Stop to lie me!
      Thanks !

      I wasn't sure if this would be the right place for a topic like this so sorry if it isn't.
      I'm currently working on a project for Uni using FreeGLUT to make a simple solar system simulation. I've got to the point where I've implemented all the planets and have used a Scene Graph to link them all together. The issue I'm having with now though is basically the planets and moons orbit correctly at their own orbit speeds.
      I'm not really experienced with using matrices for stuff like this so It's likely why I can't figure out how exactly to get it working. This is where I'm applying the transformation matrices, as well as pushing and popping them. This is within the Render function that every planet including the sun and moons will have and run.
      if (tag != "Sun") { glRotatef(orbitAngle, orbitRotation.X, orbitRotation.Y, orbitRotation.Z); } glPushMatrix(); glTranslatef(position.X, position.Y, position.Z); glRotatef(rotationAngle, rotation.X, rotation.Y, rotation.Z); glScalef(scale.X, scale.Y, scale.Z); glDrawElements(GL_TRIANGLES, mesh->indiceCount, GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT, mesh->indices); if (tag != "Sun") { glPopMatrix(); } The "If(tag != "Sun")" parts are my attempts are getting the planets to orbit correctly though it likely isn't the way I'm meant to be doing it. So I was wondering if someone would be able to help me? As I really don't have an idea on what I would do to get it working. Using the if statement is truthfully the closest I've got to it working but there are still weird effects like the planets orbiting faster then they should depending on the number of planets actually be updated/rendered.

      Hello everyone
      For @80bserver8 nice job - I have found Google search. How did you port from Javascript WebGL to C# OpenTK.?
      I have been searched Google but it shows f***ing Unity 3D. I really want know how do I understand I want start with OpenTK But I want know where is porting of Javascript and C#?
       
      Thanks!

OpenGL The API similarities between D3D12, Vulkan and Metal?

This topic is 710 days old which is more than the 365 day threshold we allow for new replies. Please post a new topic.

If you intended to correct an error in the post then please contact us.

Recommended Posts

The reason I'm asking this is because I plan to update my engine to support Direct3D12, Vulkan, Metal and OpenGL 4.5 via GL_NV_command_list only.  Right now, my engine supports Direct3D11 and core OpenGL (ES is broken right now), and since so far these APIs seem to be very different than their predecessors after taking a quick look at the basics so I want to write a new interface to handle it... similar to how Direct3D keeps track of it's interface versions.

 

/* Higher level rendering class */

class IKeRenderDevice;

class IKeGeometryBuffer;

 

/* Lower level rendering class */

class IKeRenderDeviceEx;

class IKeCommandBufferEx;

 

What am I asking?  I'm asking how similar, if not, how different are each API from each other?  What I should probably do first is start working on an API as I write some basic code to get acquainted with each API.  Start with a triangle, then add a texture, etc. and design my render device and command buffer classes as I learn.  But the more I learn, the more I tend to run into some gotchas that make it a bit more of a challenge to write a universal API that the user can choose to your liking.

 

If you're curious about my engine so far, you can take a look here: https://github.com/blueshogun96/KunaiEngine

 

And please, don't tell me that I should use UE4 or Unity instead because it's a "waste of time".  That's not constructive and I get tired of arguing this all the time because for me, the benefits of having a custom engine greatly outweigh paying for a pre-built closed source one.

 

Thanks,

 

Shogun.

I'd argue that it really depends on who your target is when it comes to the level of abstraction. If I open up an engine whose finest granularity is geometry, does that mean I'm precluded from doing my own custom compute tasks? Welp, on to the next engine then.

Well, two things.

First... yes, no one engine meets every single possible use case. There's a reason that the entire industry hasn't just standardized on a single universal engine already. :)

Second, you're perhaps missing a key point: the abstraction should be the renderer itself. The renderer is where you add graphics features. It doesn't make sense to have your graphics system provide yet another level of abstraction just so that the gameplay layer can (poorly) implement custom rendering features. If you need to add some compute effects or the like, you add them in the renderer, not above it. Non-graphics computer is another story, and arguably an orthogonal one. That is, your abstractions for non-graphics compute should not be the same abstractions you use for graphics as otherwise you end up with physics/AI/whatever having a hard dependency upon your graphics APIs, which is just bad architecture.

BTW what is the actual cost of wrapping an api inside a virtual class?

On the first hand Vulkan and dx12 are designed to make you bake as much state change as possible in bigger set like pipeline state or descriptor table or command list. There is thus less api call done which translate to less virtual call made for a close enough api.
On the second hand the point of these api is to lower cpu overhead as much as possible ; several Vulkan functions even take array of parameter structure to build multiple api object within a single function call (to write descriptor call, create pipeline state,...). If the cpu overhead reduction makes possible to notice a perf difference when removing around 10 function calls per draw call then I would rather avoid the cost of vtable indirection if possible.

Those functions accept multiple structures/objects to avoid having to run internal code that is orders of magnitude more expensive than simple function call overhead.

If you use the API correctly the overhead from vtable indirection is virtually nonexistent (and if you don't you're gonna be bottlenecked by something else long before).

Virtual calls are pretty damn cheap on x86/x64 CPU's (others, not so much)... You probably won't even be able to measure the cost :wink:

 

but you don't need any virtuals to make an API wrapper. You only need virtual functions for runtime polymorphism -- i.e. if your game needs to be able to use D3D12 and Vulkan at the same time via the one interface, then yes, you need virtuals (or some other dynamic dispatch mechanism). But you never need to use multiple graphics APIs at the same time, so you can use compile-time polymorphism instead.
