Unformatted text preview: Introduction to Computer Graphics CS 445 / 645 Lecture 4 OpenGL Programming Guide OpenGL Announcement Announcement • Visit discussion forum to keep up to date • Red Book is good source for OpenGL Intro to OpenGL OpenGL operates as an infinite loop • Put things in the scene (points, colored lines, textured polys) • Describe the camera (location, orientation, field of view) • Listen for keyboard events • Render – draw the scene Intro to OpenGL OpenGL has a “state” • There are a lot of ways your OpenGL program can be There configured configured • The current configuration is stored in OpenGL’s state • Be aware that OpenGL commands affect the program’s state Be rather than redirect its logical execution rather Intro to OpenGL OpenGL uses matrices • Matrix describes camera type • Matrix describes current configuration of the 3D space – Explanation… Intro to OpenGL OpenGL coordinate system • right-handed – Hold out your right hand and hold your thumb, index, and Hold middle fingers orthogonal to one another orthogonal – Call your thumb the x-axis, index = y-axis, and middle = Call axis axis – This is the OpenGL coordinate system • The camera defaults to look down negative z-axis Intro to OpenGL So… • X-axis = thumb = 1, 0, 0 • Y-axis = index = 0, 1, 0 • Z-axis = middle = 0, 0, 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 • Camera defaults to look down negative z-axis • Let’s say we want it to look down x-axis Intro to OpenGL Coordinate system transformation so camera Coordinate looks down x-axis looks • If x-axis negative z-axis If – x -z –yy –zx 0 0 1 0 1 0 − 1 0 0 Intro to OpenGL The a i matrix defines the transformation 1 0 0 a b 0 1 0 × d e 0 0 1 g h c f i = 0 0 1 0 1 0 − 1 0 0 Why store the transformation matrix and not the final Why desired matrix? desired Intro to OpenGL The transformation will be applied to many points • If the following transformation moves the axes 1 0 0 a b 0 1 0 × d e 0 0 1 g h c f i = 0 0 1 0 1 0 − 1 0 0 • The same transformation moves vertices The – Example: (1, 1, -1) (-1, 1, -1) Example: 0 0 1 i i ' 0 1 0 j = j ' − 1 0 0 k k ' Intro to OpenGL This important matrix is stored as the MODELVIEW matrix This MODELVIEW • The MODELVIEW matrix is so important OpenGL maintains a stack of The these matrices these • You have control of this stack with the glPushMatrix and glPopMatrix You commands commands • (The matrix is actually 4x4, but we will study the details to unders...
