  1. How can I find collision point and normal using sat? I read that sat can do that. Please help me? AABB.cpp int AABB::supportFaceCount() { // there are only three directions for every face of an AABB box. return 3; } XMVECTOR AABB::supportFaceDirection(int i) { // the three axes of an AABB box. along the x, y and z axis. static const XMVECTOR s_aabbAxes[] = { XMVectorSet(1, 0, 0, 0), XMVectorSet(0, 1, 0, 0), XMVectorSet(0, 0, 1, 0) }; return s_aabbAxes[i]; } int AABB::supportEdgeCount() { // there are only three directions for every edges of an AABB box. return 3; } XMVECTOR AABB::supportEdgeDirection(int i) { // every edge go along the x y, or z axis. static const XMVECTOR s_aabbEdges[] = { XMVectorSet(1, 0, 0, 0), XMVectorSet(0, 1, 0, 0), XMVectorSet(0, 0, 1, 0) }; return s_aabbEdges[i]; } void AABB::supportInterval(XMVECTOR direction, float& min, float& max) { XMVECTOR centre = XMVectorSet(Center[0], Center[1], Center[2], 1); // projection of the box centre float p = XMVector3Dot(centre, direction).m128_f32[0]; // projection of the box extents float rx = fabs(direction.m128_f32[0]) * Radius[0]; float ry = fabs(direction.m128_f32[1]) * Radius[1]; float rz = fabs(direction.m128_f32[2]) * Radius[2]; // the projection interval along the direction. float rb = rx + ry + rz; min = p - rb; max = p + rb; } bool ObjectsSeparatedAlongDirection(XMVECTOR& direction, AABB* a, AABB* b) { float mina, maxa; float minb, maxb; a->supportInterval(direction, mina, maxa); b->supportInterval(direction, minb, maxb); return (mina > maxb || minb > maxa); } bool ObjectsIntersected(AABB* a, AABB* b) { // test faces of A for(int i = 0; i < a->supportFaceCount(); i++) { XMVECTOR direction = a->supportFaceDirection(i); if(ObjectsSeparatedAlongDirection(direction, a, b)) return false; } // test faces of B for(int i = 0; i < b->supportFaceCount(); i++) { XMVECTOR direction = b->supportFaceDirection(i); if(ObjectsSeparatedAlongDirection(direction, a, b)) return false; } // test cross product of edges of A against edges of B. for(int i = 0; i < a->supportEdgeCount(); i++) { XMVECTOR edge_a = a->supportEdgeDirection(i); for(int j = 0; j < b->supportEdgeCount(); j++) { XMVECTOR edge_b = b->supportEdgeDirection(j); XMVECTOR direction = XMVector3Cross(edge_a, edge_b); if(ObjectsSeparatedAlongDirection(direction, a, b)) return false; } } return true; }
  2. Hello! I'm trying to understand why my reflection code does not work and I can't think why is this happening. What I want from you is to give me hints of what might go wrong in order to check it and give you more feedback and maybe we find the problem. This is the first time I'm doing reflection. These are the steps and order of rendering my scene: 1) First I'm creating a Frame buffer with an RGB texture as it's color buffer and a Renderer Buffer as it's depth and stencil buffer with 24_8 precision accordingly (Even though I don't use the stencil). 2) I'm rendering the skybox cube map into the custom Frame Buffer with the depth test disabled. After that I'm enabling depth test again. 3) I'm rendering the cube into the custom Frame Buffer and sampling from the cube map using the reflection from the viewer and the cube's fragment. 4) I'm rendering a quad into the default frame buffer by sampling the color buffer texture from the custom frame buffer. Ps: I have blend enable too, but I tried to disabled it and got the same results. Below you can see the results: So what should I check? Below you can see the vertex and fragment shaders for the cube (I'm doing calculations in World space): Vertex Shader: #version 330 core layout(location = 0) in vec3 aPos; layout(location = 1) in vec3 aNormal; uniform mat4 model; uniform mat4 view; uniform mat4 proj; out vec3 normal; out vec3 fragPos; void main() { gl_Position = proj * view * model * vec4(aPos, 1.0f); normal = mat3(transpose(inverse(model))) * aNormal; fragPos = vec3(model * vec4(aPos, 1.0f)); } Fragment Shader: #version 330 core out vec4 aPixelColor; in vec3 normal; out vec3 fragPos; uniform samplerCube cube_map; uniform vec3 camPos; void main() { vec3 view = normalize(fragPos - camPos); vec3 refl = reflect(view, normalize(normal)); aPixelColor = vec4(texture(cube_map, refl).rgb, 1.0f); } Cube Vertices: float l_vertices[] = { //Positions Normals. -0.5f, -0.5f, -0.5f, 0.0f, 0.0f, -1.0f, 0.5f, -0.5f, -0.5f, 0.0f, 0.0f, -1.0f, 0.5f, 0.5f, -0.5f, 0.0f, 0.0f, -1.0f, 0.5f, 0.5f, -0.5f, 0.0f, 0.0f, -1.0f, -0.5f, 0.5f, -0.5f, 0.0f, 0.0f, -1.0f, -0.5f, -0.5f, -0.5f, 0.0f, 0.0f, -1.0f, -0.5f, -0.5f, 0.5f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.5f, -0.5f, 0.5f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.5f, 0.5f, 0.5f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.5f, 0.5f, 0.5f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f, -0.5f, 0.5f, 0.5f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f, -0.5f, -0.5f, 0.5f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f, -0.5f, 0.5f, 0.5f, -1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, -0.5f, 0.5f, -0.5f, -1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, -0.5f, -0.5f, -0.5f, -1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, -0.5f, -0.5f, -0.5f, -1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, -0.5f, -0.5f, 0.5f, -1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, -0.5f, 0.5f, 0.5f, -1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.5f, 0.5f, 0.5f, 1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.5f, 0.5f, -0.5f, 1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.5f, -0.5f, -0.5f, 1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.5f, -0.5f, -0.5f, 1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.5f, -0.5f, 0.5f, 1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.5f, 0.5f, 0.5f, 1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, -0.5f, -0.5f, -0.5f, 0.0f, -1.0f, 0.0f, 0.5f, -0.5f, -0.5f, 0.0f, -1.0f, 0.0f, 0.5f, -0.5f, 0.5f, 0.0f, -1.0f, 0.0f, 0.5f, -0.5f, 0.5f, 0.0f, -1.0f, 0.0f, -0.5f, -0.5f, 0.5f, 0.0f, -1.0f, 0.0f, -0.5f, -0.5f, -0.5f, 0.0f, -1.0f, 0.0f, -0.5f, 0.5f, -0.5f, 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f, 0.5f, 0.5f, -0.5f, 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f, 0.5f, 0.5f, 0.5f, 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f, 0.5f, 0.5f, 0.5f, 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f, -0.5f, 0.5f, 0.5f, 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f, -0.5f, 0.5f, -0.5f, 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f };
  3. Since hardware with full support for floating point textures and frame buffers is so ubiquitous today, is there a reason to shoehorn in HDR using non-float formats? The doubling in memory usage incurred by half-floats is indeed daunting, and minifloats just don't offer the desired level of precision in many cases. Still, this could mean so little on contemporary hardware that the benefits far outweigh any potential penalties,
  4. not sure if this is the right place to ask, but i have made a certain simulation with JavaFX 3D API and it's working very well so far, now i wanted to implement 3D shadows and i wasn't able to find any articles or help, i had to read a lot of articles about 3D shadow mapping algorithms but i wasn't able to apply anything on my JavaFX project i already assumed that it's impossible but if anyone of you have tried that, let me know
  5. I have recently read an article(http://www.aclockworkberry.com/shader-derivative-functions/) ,which was very informative for me。however,there weren't too much details about how the derivatives actually work by explaining them pixels by pixels under the group, only one example was shown there which was too intuitive. but when i came to other pixels in the group, things got really tricky and confusing.for better illustration of my question, Let's just take an example here, say, i have a rendertarget like this: According to the article,the horizontal derivative for some value in pixel[0] is obtained by subtracting the value itself from the correspondence in pixel[1]. Since they are in the same group ,both values can be easily fetched.Great!but how about pixel[1]? if same rule is applied the horizontal derivative should be calculated base on pixel[1] itself as well as the value in pixel[2]. but at this time the two pixels are in diffrent groups! similar situations accured when you perform the vertical derivative for pixel[4]. Well, i was originally thinking maybe there was some fancy driver features that can make it happend. unfortunately the result was not what i expected after i made some experiment. this simple code below failed my assumption:(you can test it and see the result in shadertoy your self ) void mainImage( out vec4 fragColor, in vec2 fragCoord ) { int oddRow = int(fragCoord.x) % 2 == 1 ? 1 : 0; //fragCoord是屏幕空间坐标 float xDerivative = dFdx(float(oddRow)); fragColor = vec4(xDerivative,xDerivative,xDerivative, 1.0); } if my supposition is correct, the screen shoud be alternated with white and black tiles alone the horizontal direction like this: but the result is pure white which is surprisingly not the case. So,can anyone shed some light about this problem for me. i also goggled a lot of places with no luck, all of them told you the pixels were handled in such a way, but no one really focused on specific situations as i have mentioned above.I think anyone who works with ddx ddy should absolutely have an clear understanding of this. Much appreciation!
  6. Hello! I'm currently learning how the depth testing works in OpenGL from these tutorials and the tutorial says that By default the depth function GL_LESS is used that discards all the fragments that have a depth value higher than or equal to the current depth buffer's value. If i guess that the depth value it the z coordinate that I pass through the vertex data, then the above statement should not be true. Fragments with small Z values should be discarded because the depth is towards the -Z axis not fragments with higher z value. Does the depth values are created somehow else by using the z coordinate of the fragment? So the depth value is a number from 0...N so lets say a fragment has a depth value of 5 and the one that is behind it has 10, the 5 will pass the test?
  7. So, I'm trying to solve this problem for months. I have already opened relative threads for this but now that I learned a lot of stuff I still seek your help for this one. What I learned so far when dealing with texture Uploading and Pixel Reads: 1) Make sure how many channels the source image file has in order to configure the glTexImage2D() to read the data correctly. 2) Make sure that the width * num_OfChannels of the image is multiple of 4, so you won't have problems with the alignment. (OpenGL Common Mistakes, Texture Upload And Pixel Reads) 3) Forcing any kind of texture (R, RG, RGB) to have exactly 4 channels ALWAYS works (But you waste a lot of memory)!!! Below, I'm going to show you step by step what I tried and what glitches are occurring, NOTICE that even if I'm creating more than one textures I ONLY render the first one a.jpg: First check out my texture code. As you can see I'm configuring glTexImage2D() to read pixel data based on how many channels they have (I'm only using textures with 3 and 4 channels) and I already made sure that the width * channels for each image is multiple of 4. #include "texture.h" #include "stb_image/stb_image.h" #include "glcall.h" #include "engine_error.h" #include <math.h> Texture::Texture(std::string path, bool trans, int unit) { //Reverse the pixels. stbi_set_flip_vertically_on_load(1); //Try to load the image. unsigned char *data = stbi_load(path.c_str(), &m_width, &m_height, &m_channels, 0); //Debug. float check = (m_width * m_channels) / 4.0f; printf("file: %20s \tchannels: %d, Divisible by 4: %s, width: %d, height: %d, widthXheight: %d\n", path.c_str(), m_channels, check == ceilf(check) ? "yes" : "no", m_width, m_height, m_width * m_height); /* //The length of the pixes row is multiple of 4. if ( check == ceilf(check) ) { GLCall(glPixelStorei(GL_UNPACK_ALIGNMENT, 4)); } //It's NOT!!!! else { GLCall(glPixelStorei(GL_UNPACK_ALIGNMENT, 1)); } */ //Image loaded successfully. if (data) { //Generate the texture and bind it. GLCall(glGenTextures(1, &m_id)); GLCall(glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, m_id)); //Not Transparent texture. if (m_channels == 3) { GLCall(glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_RGB, m_width, m_height, 0, GL_RGB, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, data)); } //Transparent texture. else if (m_channels == 4) { GLCall(glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_RGBA, m_width, m_height, 0, GL_RGBA, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, data)); } else { throw EngineError("Unsupported Channels!!!"); } //Texture Filters. GLCall(glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_S, GL_REPEAT)); GLCall(glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_T, GL_REPEAT)); GLCall(glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_NEAREST_MIPMAP_NEAREST)); GLCall(glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_LINEAR)); //Generate mipmaps. GLCall(glGenerateMipmap(GL_TEXTURE_2D)); } //Loading Failed. else throw EngineError("The was an error loading image: " + path); //Unbind the texture. GLCall(glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0)); //Free the image data. stbi_image_free(data); } Texture::~Texture() { GLCall(glDeleteTextures(1, &m_id)); } void Texture::Bind(int unit) { GLCall(glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE0 + unit)); GLCall(glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, m_id)); } Now Check out the Main.cpp File #include "Renderer.h" #include "camera.h" Camera *camera; //Handle Key Input. void HandleInput(GLFWwindow *window) { //Exit the application with ESCAPE KEY. if (glfwGetKey(window, GLFW_KEY_ESCAPE) == GLFW_PRESS) glfwSetWindowShouldClose(window, 1); //Move Forward. if (glfwGetKey(window, GLFW_KEY_W) == GLFW_PRESS) camera->Move(true); //Move Backward. if (glfwGetKey(window, GLFW_KEY_S) == GLFW_PRESS) camera->Move(false, true); //Move left. if (glfwGetKey(window, GLFW_KEY_A) == GLFW_PRESS) camera->Move(false, false, true); //Move right. if (glfwGetKey(window, GLFW_KEY_D) == GLFW_PRESS) camera->Move(false, false, false, true); } //Mouse Input. void MouseInput(GLFWwindow *window, double x, double y) { camera->UpdateRotation(x, y); } //Mouse Zoom input. void MouseZoom(GLFWwindow *window, double x, double y) { camera->UpdateZoom(x, y); } int main(void) { GLFWwindow* window; /* Initialize the library */ if (!glfwInit()) return -1; //Use openGL version 3.3 Core Profile. glfwWindowHint(GLFW_CONTEXT_VERSION_MAJOR, 3); glfwWindowHint(GLFW_CONTEXT_VERSION_MINOR, 3); glfwWindowHint(GLFW_OPENGL_PROFILE, GLFW_OPENGL_CORE_PROFILE); /* Create a windowed mode window and its OpenGL context */ window = glfwCreateWindow(800, 600, "Hello World", NULL, NULL); if (!window) { glfwTerminate(); return -1; } /* Make the window's context current */ glfwMakeContextCurrent(window); //Initialize GLEW. if (glewInit() != GLEW_OK) { glfwTerminate(); return -1; } //Set Callback functions. glfwSetCursorPosCallback(window, MouseInput); glfwSetScrollCallback(window, MouseZoom); //Disable the cursor. glfwSetInputMode(window, GLFW_CURSOR, GLFW_CURSOR_DISABLED); //Enable Depth Test. GLCall(glEnable(GL_DEPTH_TEST)); //Get the max texture size. GLint size; GLCall(glGetIntegerv(GL_MAX_TEXTURE_SIZE, &size)); std::cout << "Texture Max Size: "<< size << std::endl; camera = new Camera(glm::vec3(0.0f, 0.0f, 3.0f)); Renderer *renderer = new Renderer(); Shader *shader = new Shader("Shaders/basic_vertex.glsl", "Shaders/basic_fragment.glsl"); Texture *texture1 = new Texture("Resources/a.jpg", false); Texture *texture2 = new Texture("Resources/container.jpg", false); Texture *texture3 = new Texture("Resources/brick2.jpg", false); Texture *texture4 = new Texture("Resources/brick3.jpg", false); //Forget this texture. //Texture *texture5 = new Texture("Resources/brick4.jpg", false); Texture *texture6 = new Texture("Resources/container2.png", true); /* Loop until the user closes the window */ while (!glfwWindowShouldClose(window)) { //Handle input. HandleInput(window); //Clear the screen. renderer->ClearScreen(0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f); //Render the cube. renderer->Render(texture1, shader, camera); //Update. renderer->Update(window); } //-------------Clean Up-------------// delete camera; delete renderer; delete shader; //forget about textures for now. //-------------Clean Up-------------// glfwTerminate(); return 0; } I will put the code of the rest classes and the glsl shaders at the end if you want to check them out, but i assure you that they work just fine. Now if i run the code below I'm getting this: Now lets see what happens if I'm loading the textures one by one starting from the first one which is the only one i render. Attempt 1: Texture *texture1 = new Texture("Resources/a.jpg", false); //Texture *texture2 = new Texture("Resources/container.jpg", false); //Texture *texture3 = new Texture("Resources/brick2.jpg", false); //Texture *texture4 = new Texture("Resources/brick3.jpg", false); //Forget this texture. //Texture *texture5 = new Texture("Resources/brick4.jpg", false); //Texture *texture6 = new Texture("Resources/container2.png", true); Attempt 2: Texture *texture1 = new Texture("Resources/a.jpg", false); Texture *texture2 = new Texture("Resources/container.jpg", false); //Texture *texture3 = new Texture("Resources/brick2.jpg", false); //Texture *texture4 = new Texture("Resources/brick3.jpg", false); //Forget this texture. //Texture *texture5 = new Texture("Resources/brick4.jpg", false); //Texture *texture6 = new Texture("Resources/container2.png", true); Attempt 3: Texture *texture1 = new Texture("Resources/a.jpg", false); Texture *texture2 = new Texture("Resources/container.jpg", false); Texture *texture3 = new Texture("Resources/brick2.jpg", false); //Texture *texture4 = new Texture("Resources/brick3.jpg", false); //Forget this texture. //Texture *texture5 = new Texture("Resources/brick4.jpg", false); //Texture *texture6 = new Texture("Resources/container2.png", true); Attempt 4 (Orange Glitch Appears) Texture *texture1 = new Texture("Resources/a.jpg", false); Texture *texture2 = new Texture("Resources/container.jpg", false); Texture *texture3 = new Texture("Resources/brick2.jpg", false); Texture *texture4 = new Texture("Resources/brick3.jpg", false); //Forget this texture. //Texture *texture5 = new Texture("Resources/brick4.jpg", false); //Texture *texture6 = new Texture("Resources/container2.png", true); Attempt 5 (Grey Glitch Appears) Texture *texture1 = new Texture("Resources/a.jpg", false); Texture *texture2 = new Texture("Resources/container.jpg", false); Texture *texture3 = new Texture("Resources/brick2.jpg", false); Texture *texture4 = new Texture("Resources/brick3.jpg", false); //Forget this texture. //Texture *texture5 = new Texture("Resources/brick4.jpg", false); Texture *texture6 = new Texture("Resources/container2.png", true); If you see it, they only texture which I'm rendering is the first one, so how can the loading of the rest textures affect the rendering, since I'm not using them? (I'm binding the first texture before every draw call, you can check it out in the renderer class). This is so weird I literally can't think anything that causes the problem. Now check this out. I'm going to run Attempt 5 again but with these changes in the Texture class (I'm going to Force 4 channels no matter what the source file's channels😞 #include "texture.h" #include "stb_image/stb_image.h" #include "glcall.h" #include "engine_error.h" #include <math.h> Texture::Texture(std::string path, bool trans, int unit) { //Reverse the pixels. stbi_set_flip_vertically_on_load(1); //Try to load the image. unsigned char *data = stbi_load(path.c_str(), &m_width, &m_height, &m_channels, 4); //FORCE 4 CHANNELS. //Debug. float check = (m_width * m_channels) / 4.0f; printf("file: %20s \tchannels: %d, Divisible by 4: %s, width: %d, height: %d, widthXheight: %d\n", path.c_str(), m_channels, check == ceilf(check) ? "yes" : "no", m_width, m_height, m_width * m_height); /* //The length of the pixes row is multiple of 4. if ( check == ceilf(check) ) { GLCall(glPixelStorei(GL_UNPACK_ALIGNMENT, 4)); } //It's NOT!!!! else { GLCall(glPixelStorei(GL_UNPACK_ALIGNMENT, 1)); } */ //Image loaded successfully. if (data) { //Generate the texture and bind it. GLCall(glGenTextures(1, &m_id)); GLCall(glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, m_id)); /* //Not Transparent texture. if (m_channels == 3) { GLCall(glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_RGB, m_width, m_height, 0, GL_RGB, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, data)); } //Transparent texture. else if (m_channels == 4) { GLCall(glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_RGBA, m_width, m_height, 0, GL_RGBA, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, data)); } else { throw EngineError("Unsupported Channels!!!"); } */ GLCall(glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_RGBA, m_width, m_height, 0, GL_RGBA, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, data)); //Texture Filters. GLCall(glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_S, GL_REPEAT)); GLCall(glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_T, GL_REPEAT)); GLCall(glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_NEAREST_MIPMAP_NEAREST)); GLCall(glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_LINEAR)); //Generate mipmaps. GLCall(glGenerateMipmap(GL_TEXTURE_2D)); } //Loading Failed. else throw EngineError("The was an error loading image: " + path); //Unbind the texture. GLCall(glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0)); //Free the image data. stbi_image_free(data); } Texture::~Texture() { GLCall(glDeleteTextures(1, &m_id)); } void Texture::Bind(int unit) { GLCall(glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE0 + unit)); GLCall(glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, m_id)); } Rendering is what I expected! But I still can't understand why this fixes it. In the first version of my texture class, which I don't force 4 channels but instead I'm using the default channels, I'm configuring glTexImage2D the right way based on the source files channels and also I'm SURE that the width * channels of each image file is multiple of 4.But again in the second version of my texture class, which solve's the problem my mind is thinking again that this might be an alignment problem but it's not, I made sure of that. So what else can cause such a problem? Does anybody knows the answer?
