OpenGL Can't render depth cubemap OpenGL

Recommended Posts

  I'm trying to render a shadow cubemap but I'm getting a black texture. I tried to look for an answer but most of the answers I found seem to be either including an unnecessary color attachment or the issue is with the projection of the shadow map. I got it to work for 2D images (dir + spot lights) but not point lights due to this issue.

Here is my Framebuffer generation code:

glGenFramebuffers(1, &fbo);
glBindFramebuffer(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, fbo);

glDrawBuffer(GL_NONE);
glReadBuffer(GL_NONE);

glGenTextures(1, &depthBuffer);
glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP, depthBuffer);
for (size_t i = 0; i < 6; i++) {
glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_POSITIVE_X + (GLenum)i, 0, GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT32, width, height, 0, GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT, GL_FLOAT, NULL);
}

glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_S, GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE);
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_T, GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE);
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_R, GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE);

glFramebufferTexture(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, GL_DEPTH_ATTACHMENT, depthBuffer, 0);

GLenum status = glCheckFramebufferStatus(GL_FRAMEBUFFER);
if (status != GL_FRAMEBUFFER_COMPLETE) {
fprintf(stderr, "Framebuffer Error. Status 0x%x\n", status);
}

// Unbind
glBindFramebuffer(GL_DRAW_FRAMEBUFFER, 0);

Here is my shadow map rendering code run for each view. I don't use geometry shaders to automatically swap between the views because right now I'm trying to support everything starting 3.1 (I have a decent PC but my old laptop only supports that.) I may support both paths based on performance later:

glBindFramebuffer(GL_DRAW_FRAMEBUFFER, fbo);
for (size_t j = 0; j < 6; j++) {
glFramebufferTexture2D(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, GL_DEPTH_ATTACHMENT, GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_POSITIVE_X + j, depthBuffer, 0);
glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT | GL_DEPTH_BUFFER_BIT);
geometryCache->Draw(proj, view[j]);
}
glBindFramebuffer(GL_READ_FRAMEBUFFER, 0);
glBindFramebuffer(GL_DRAW_FRAMEBUFFER, 0);

And finally, I render the deferred rendering sphere for the point light including this:

...
glBindFramebuffer(GL_READ_FRAMEBUFFER, fbo);
glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE4);
glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, depthBuffer);
glBindFramebuffer(GL_READ_FRAMEBUFFER, 0);
glBindFramebuffer(GL_DRAW_FRAMEBUFFER, 0);
...

Does anyone have any ideas? Also, is it better to use gl_FragDepth to manually define the depth or to use a blank fragment shader for shadow maps (both spotlight and pointlight? Thanks in advance!

Not sure of the answer though have noticed your rendering 6 times, once for each face.

Check out https://learnopengl.com/#!Advanced-Lighting/Shadows/Point-Shadows as has code to do the rendering with 1 render as it uses a geometry shader, quicker.

Not too dificult to modify the tutorial for multiple lighting with a texture array.

Hey, thanks Paul, but I already saw that link. I did say: "I don't use geometry shaders to automatically swap between the views because right now I'm trying to support everything starting 3.1 (I have a decent PC but my old laptop only supports that.)"

I don't see any mention of PCF, perhaps force a compare mode of none to fix the black texture issue.

glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE..., GL_TEXTURE_COMPARE_MODE, GL_NONE);

I'm not using PCF on point lights until I get it to work at all :P Also I tried COMPARE_MODE before I posted, it didn't work.

For my old shadows with debug depth texture displayed in corner, I had the same side effect which toggling the parameter (re-gen) would workaround. Though it wasn't the first or last time GL gave empty results of course!

For your second question I think there's nothing to lose by using an empty frag shader. Though I can't say the same for the alternative. I think the difference (if any) is readablity in your code. Best to test on various machines if you can, but I think optimizes like that are secondary and driver dependent.

I'm sorry, toggling which parameter? Compare_mode?

Alright fair point, I'll keep that in mind. I just didn't want to do too many tests when the answers are probably already known.

Yes. GL_NONE would be set (when generating the

texture) for displaying the debug quad. Or enable a compare mode for normal shadow lookups to work. I noticed nobody else seemed to have the issue and later searched images for one which displayed a shadowed scene plus debug at the same time. Guess my method was old as the issue happened way back in 2008!

Also, not at work PC right now but I think you should set parameters before generating textures, possibly within the cube loop? I forget tbh.

Before this thread gets too old, plus if the OP is still around, and certainly for search results: I suspect the OP is using glBlitFrameBuffer from an FBO direct to the backbuffer, in which case the SRC/DST coords must be the same dimension. However, as stuff like shadow debug windows tend to be a fraction of the original size when viewed (as a 'postage stamp') then a 2nd FBO is required for the scaling to take place to. Then a 1:1 blit can be done from the 2nd FBO to the backbuffer with matching dimensions on SRC/DST.

I can't imagine why GL is like this, imo a bug :)

 

...indeed (read OP again).

Looking at the documentation for glBlitFramebuffer, it states that calling the function with different source and destination rectangle sizes will use interpolation (which must be either GL_NEAREST or GL_LINEAR). Did you call it with a valid filter?

There are some notable cases to handle which can be seen in the "Errors" section:

GL_INVALID_OPERATION is generated if mask contains any of the GL_DEPTH_BUFFER_BIT or GL_STENCIL_BUFFER_BIT and filter is not GL_NEAREST.

GL_INVALID_OPERATION is generated if filter is GL_LINEAR and the read buffer contains integer data.

GL_INVALID_OPERATION is generated if GL_SAMPLE_BUFFERS for the read buffer is greater than zero and the formats of draw and read buffers are not identical, or the source and destination rectangles are not defined with the same (X0, Y0) and (X1, Y1) bounds.

 

Edit:

Sorry, I forgot that we were talking about multisampled FBOs - it seems like there is some strange behavior with those indeed. :)

      The Khronos™ Group, an open consortium of leading hardware and software companies, announces from the SIGGRAPH 2017 Conference the immediate public availability of the OpenGL® 4.6 specification. OpenGL 4.6 integrates the functionality of numerous ARB and EXT extensions created by Khronos members AMD, Intel, and NVIDIA into core, including the capability to ingest SPIR-V™ shaders.
      SPIR-V is a Khronos-defined standard intermediate language for parallel compute and graphics, which enables content creators to simplify their shader authoring and management pipelines while providing significant source shading language flexibility. OpenGL 4.6 adds support for ingesting SPIR-V shaders to the core specification, guaranteeing that SPIR-V shaders will be widely supported by OpenGL implementations.
      OpenGL 4.6 adds the functionality of these ARB extensions to OpenGL’s core specification:
      GL_ARB_gl_spirv and GL_ARB_spirv_extensions to standardize SPIR-V support for OpenGL GL_ARB_indirect_parameters and GL_ARB_shader_draw_parameters for reducing the CPU overhead associated with rendering batches of geometry GL_ARB_pipeline_statistics_query and GL_ARB_transform_feedback_overflow_querystandardize OpenGL support for features available in Direct3D GL_ARB_texture_filter_anisotropic (based on GL_EXT_texture_filter_anisotropic) brings previously IP encumbered functionality into OpenGL to improve the visual quality of textured scenes GL_ARB_polygon_offset_clamp (based on GL_EXT_polygon_offset_clamp) suppresses a common visual artifact known as a “light leak” associated with rendering shadows GL_ARB_shader_atomic_counter_ops and GL_ARB_shader_group_vote add shader intrinsics supported by all desktop vendors to improve functionality and performance GL_KHR_no_error reduces driver overhead by allowing the application to indicate that it expects error-free operation so errors need not be generated In addition to the above features being added to OpenGL 4.6, the following are being released as extensions:
      GL_KHR_parallel_shader_compile allows applications to launch multiple shader compile threads to improve shader compile throughput WGL_ARB_create_context_no_error and GXL_ARB_create_context_no_error allow no error contexts to be created with WGL or GLX that support the GL_KHR_no_error extension “I’m proud to announce OpenGL 4.6 as the most feature-rich version of OpenGL yet. We've brought together the most popular, widely-supported extensions into a new core specification to give OpenGL developers and end users an improved baseline feature set. This includes resolving previous intellectual property roadblocks to bringing anisotropic texture filtering and polygon offset clamping into the core specification to enable widespread implementation and usage,” said Piers Daniell, chair of the OpenGL Working Group at Khronos. “The OpenGL working group will continue to respond to market needs and work with GPU vendors to ensure OpenGL remains a viable and evolving graphics API for all its customers and users across many vital industries.“
      The OpenGL 4.6 specification can be found at https://khronos.org/registry/OpenGL/index_gl.php. The GLSL to SPIR-V compiler glslang has been updated with GLSL 4.60 support, and can be found at https://github.com/KhronosGroup/glslang.
      Sophisticated graphics applications will also benefit from a set of newly released extensions for both OpenGL and OpenGL ES to enable interoperability with Vulkan and Direct3D. These extensions are named:
      GL_EXT_memory_object GL_EXT_memory_object_fd GL_EXT_memory_object_win32 GL_EXT_semaphore GL_EXT_semaphore_fd GL_EXT_semaphore_win32 GL_EXT_win32_keyed_mutex They can be found at: https://khronos.org/registry/OpenGL/index_gl.php
      Industry Support for OpenGL 4.6
      “With OpenGL 4.6 our customers have an improved set of core features available on our full range of OpenGL 4.x capable GPUs. These features provide improved rendering quality, performance and functionality. As the graphics industry’s most popular API, we fully support OpenGL and will continue to work closely with the Khronos Group on the development of new OpenGL specifications and extensions for our customers. NVIDIA has released beta OpenGL 4.6 drivers today at https://developer.nvidia.com/opengl-driver so developers can use these new features right away,” said Bob Pette, vice president, Professional Graphics at NVIDIA.
      "OpenGL 4.6 will be the first OpenGL release where conformant open source implementations based on the Mesa project will be deliverable in a reasonable timeframe after release. The open sourcing of the OpenGL conformance test suite and ongoing work between Khronos and X.org will also allow for non-vendor led open source implementations to achieve conformance in the near future," said David Airlie, senior principal engineer at Red Hat, and developer on Mesa/X.org projects.

      Hi,
      I have an OpenGL application but without possibility to wite own shaders.
      I need to perform small VS modification - is possible to do it in an alternative way? Do we have apps or driver modifictions which will catch the shader sent to GPU and override it?

      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);
      glBindFramebuffer(GL_READ_FRAMEBUFFER, framebuffer);
      glFramebufferTexture2D(GL_READ_FRAMEBUFFER, GL_COLOR_ATTACHMENT0,
                                     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:
      // This works quat quaternion1 = GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector1); quat quaternion2 = GEMultiplyQuaternions(quaternion1, GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector2)); quat quaternion3 = GEMultiplyQuaternions(quaternion2, GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector3)); glMultMatrixf(GEMat4FromQuaternion(quaternion3).array); // The first two work fine but not the third. Why? quat quaternion1 = GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector1); vec3 vector1 = GETransformQuaternionAndVector(quaternion1, angularVelocity1); quat quaternion2 = GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector2); vec3 vector2 = GETransformQuaternionAndVector(quaternion2, angularVelocity2); // This doesn't work //quat quaternion3 = GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector3); //vec3 vector3 = GETransformQuaternionAndVector(quaternion3, angularVelocity3); vec3 angleVelocity = GEAddVectors(vector1, vector2); // Does not work: vec3 angleVelocity = GEAddVectors(vector1, GEAddVectors(vector2, vector3)); static vec3 angleRadiansVector; vec3 angularAcceleration = GESetVector(0.0, 0.0, 0.0); // Sending it through one angular velocity later in my motion engine angleVelocity = GEAddVectors(angleVelocity, GEMultiplyVectorAndScalar(angularAcceleration, timeStep)); angleRadiansVector = GEAddVectors(angleRadiansVector, GEMultiplyVectorAndScalar(angleVelocity, timeStep)); glMultMatrixf(GEMat4FromEulerAngle(angleRadiansVector).array); Also how do I combine multiple angularAcceleration variables? Is there an easier way to transform the angular values?
