« Last post by oscarbg on October 17, 2014, 10:50:06 PM »
you know there is new MacOS 10.10 ready and even a big jump in Nvidia Web drivers to 343:
http://us.download.nvidia.com/Mac/Quadro_Certified/343.01.01f01/WebDriver-343.01.01f01.pkg
 can you test if fixes the issues?
 will be good to know..

qu3e is a compact, light-weight and fast 3D physics engine in C++. It is has been specifically created to be used in games. It is portable with no external dependencies other than various standard c header files (such as cassert and cmath). qu3e is designed to have an extremely simple interface for creating and manipulating rigid bodies.

qu3e is of particular interest to those in need of a fast and simple 3D physics engine, without spending too much time learning about how the whole engine works. In order to keep things very simple and friendly for new users, only box collision is supported. No other shapes are supported (capsules and spheres may be added in the future if requested).

Since qu3e is written in C++ is intended for users familiar with C++. The inner-code of qu3e has quite a few comments and is a great place for users to learn the workings of a 3D physics engine.

qu3e stands for "cube", since the 3 looks slightly like the letter b and boxes (or cubes!) are the primary type of collision object.

English forum / OpenGL 4 Shader Subroutines - NVIDIA/OSX bug?
« Last post by JeGX on October 17, 2014, 06:32:29 PM »
I struggled many hours recently with subroutines and I didn't manage to make them ok under OS X with a GeForce GPU.
I added a new simple demo that shows a pqtorus rendered three times, each time with a different subroutine (texture, phong, phong+texture).

The demo is available in the code sample pack:
host_api/gl-400-arb-shader-subroutine/demo_gl4_v3.xml

The latest GLSL Hacker 0.7.2.0 is recommended.

The demo works fine on Windows. On OS X, the demo works fine for Intel and AMD GPUs but not for NVIDIA GPUs. With the GT650M / OSX, the same subroutine is used to shade all meshes and that's the bug. I suspect a bug on OSX with GeForce GPUs because the demo works fine everywhere else. But since it's a NVIDIA related issue, my code can be also guilty...


OK - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 - R337.50 - Win7 64-bit


OK - Intel HD 4000 - OS X 10.9


OK - AMD Radeon HD 6870 - OS X 10.9 (Hackintosh)


ERROR - NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M (Macbook Retina Mid-2012) - OS X 10.9

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Qt 5.4 Beta Available

I am extremely happy to announce that Qt 5.4 Beta is now available for download. There are a lot of new and interesting things in Qt 5.4 and I will try to summarize the most important highlights in this blog post.

Qt 5.4 brings capability to dynamically select during the application startup whether to use ANGLE or OpenGL on Windows. It is possible to use either opengl32.dll or ANGLE’s OpenGL ES 2.0 implementation in Qt applications without the need for two separate builds of the binaries. This significantly simplifies the task of creating Qt Quick applications for Windows PCs. Dynamic GL switching is not yet enabled in the prebuilt Qt 5.4 Beta binaries. In addition to these, there is a large number of smaller improvements and bug fixes for the Windows port in Qt 5.4.

...

QOpenGLContext is now able to adopt existing native contexts (EGL, GLX, …). This allows interoperability between Qt and other frameworks, such as game engines.

It's not a bug and what you are doing is ok. It's just a pixel format for image2D that was not handled by GLSL Hacker. I added it in GLSL Hacker 0.7.1.5 (which should be downloadable in few minutes).

Now you can use PF_U8_RGBA in Lua and layout(rgba8) in GLSL. Same thing with PF_U8_R and layout(r8). I added a new demo (demo_v02_rgba8.xml).

I will add 16-bit channel texture support in one of the next versions.

Update: GLSL Hacker 0.7.1.5

English forum / RGBA8 texture is unsuported in Compute shaders
« Last post by msomeone on October 10, 2014, 08:55:56 AM »
Hello,
i've recently tried using GLSL Hacker with compute shaders and discovered that PF_U8_RGBA textures are not able to be written into.
As a reproducer i've modified gl-430-arb-compute-shader_Image_PostFX hostapi sample to create PF_U8_RGBA texture and changed r32f in compute shader to rgba8: http://pastebin.com/5Vr7TPV0

Is there something wrong in what i was doing or this could be considered as a bug?

offtopic: is there any chance, that 16bit channel textures would be supported in near future (sometimes one could need to load 16bit grayscale png for example)?

Thanks for attention
