[osg-users] [resolved] frame control and callback

Hi Wojtek,


Thanks a lot, it's work ;-)

It was that, one thread more safe, than multi-thread to takes shots frame per frame...

That little point should be explain in the user documentation, but it is a known problem in graphic programming.

I just forgot that...

Hi Matthieu,


Try using --SingleThreded mode with your viewer. I once tried to do similar thing. Although in my case I was dumping color buffer.But very often I was  reading wrong portion of the whole range. It turned out that default multithreading of OSG was runnig two frames concurently and one snapshot was overrriding the other. 


Attached you will find an code excerpt from my app. It was used to dump pseudo aerial photographs for some airport objects. We used these images later for paged terrain.


Code may not compile because I removed few specific parts. But main rendering loops are untouched you may use them as template for your code.

	Hello OSG users,


	I am a new on OSG and I have some difficulties to finish an application.

	I am trying to do an application which computes pre-calculated height-maps from a scene.

	Simply, I make a "draughtboard" from the scene; and a camera takes shots from Z-buffer for each square looking downward.

	I have done a callback function to get z-buffer and convert it to my convenience, but I can't control the execution of that callback function...


	struct MyCameraPostDrawCallback : public osg::Camera::DrawCallback


	      MyCameraPostDrawCallback(osg::Image* image, osg::Image* cimage, osg::Texture2D* t): _image(image), _cimage(cimage), _cTex(t)



	    virtual void operator () (const osg::Camera& /*camera*/) const




	I use this function to init the callback in the camera settings: camera->setPostDrawCallback(new MyCameraPostDrawCallback(test.get(), zImage.get(), tex.get()));


	After that, I use loops to modify camera positions and take my shots (I make a code based on the example from OSG user guide using viewer->frame(). 





	            yf = yd+TEXT_SIZE;




	                  camera->setClearColor(osg::Vec4(0.1f,0.3f,0.3f,1.0f));//init buffer de couleur

	                  camera->setClearMask(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT | GL_DEPTH_BUFFER_BIT);//init Z-buffer


















	The problem is to takes a shot using the callback function for each frame with the new camera position.

	I thought that draw a frame should calls the Camera::DrawCallBack function, but it doesn't...

	I always get the last square from the loops in my images buffer (at each position). 

	In fact the callback function is called after the loops in spite of viewer->frame().


	Can you help me? I am not sure to use the right method...
