Android :: Method To Draw Bitmaps Faster On Droid Canvas / OpenGL?

Jun 15, 2010

I currently have a game written using the Android canvas. It is completely 2D, and I draw bitmaps as sprites on the canvas, and it technically works, but I have a few features that I need to add that will require drawing many more bitmaps on the screen, and there will be a lot more movement.

The app needs more power.

What is the best way to go from this method of drawing Bitmaps on a canvas to using OpenGL so I can draw them faster?

Android :: Draw Translucent Bitmaps Using Canvas Without Having To Resort To OpenGL?

Mar 17, 2010

I have a Bitmap object and want to render it to a Canvas object with varying levels of translucency (i.e. make the whole bitmap partially see through). For example, I have sprites in a game (that are drawn over the top of a bitmap background) that I want to fade out from being opaque to being invisible. Can I do this without having to resort to OpenGL?

Android :: Canvas Faster Than OpenGL?

Dec 20, 2009

I have downloaded and run the SpriteMethodTest on my Droid but compiled to 1.6 Android. I am getting the very strange behavior that drawing bitmaps to *canvas* is faster than using OpenGL. At 100 sprites, I am getting about 64 fps for Canvas. For OpenGL, its around 34 fps.

I also ran the same test on the 1.6 emulator. 100 sprites came in at 30 fps for canvas, just 6 for OpenGL!

I was so astonished that I actually checked that the radio buttons were running the right tests.

Android :: Unable To See Bitmaps At 0 0 Of Canvas

Jul 6, 2010

I have following example code:

Character c = CharacterFactory.getCharacter(CharacterEnum.SpecialCharacter); //factory has applicationContext reference to get bitmaps from R. ... Paint bitmapPaint = new Paint(); ... View::onDraw(Canvas canvas) ... canvas.drawBitmap(c.bitmap(), 0, 0, bitmapPaint);

For some reason (must be something simple) I do not see the bitmaps at the 0,0 of the canvas. Inspecting the bitmap and etc does not show anything obvious (nulls), I must have missed something. Is there something I should be paying particular attention to while drawing bitmaps?

Android :: App Gets Too Slow While Drawing Two Bitmaps On A Canvas / Fix It?

Nov 4, 2010

I have two bitmap overlapped .The top bitmap is transparent and when user touch to screen i copy pixels from another bitmap to top bitmap.My goal is to give to users the feeling of erasing image with touching to see another image.However it is not working properly especially when user drags his finger too fast on the screen.I made a few tests and i beleive drawing bitmaps to the canvas every time cause the lag but i don't know how to fix it.

Android :: Draw From Old Canvas

Oct 28, 2010

I'm making an App that needs to be able to draw new graphics on top of the last set.

This is my current onDraw() method -
protected void onDraw(Canvas canvas) {
canvas.drawColor(Color.WHITE);
if(points.size() > 0) {
//do some stuff here - this is all working ok
canvas.drawLine(p1.x, p1.y, p2.x, p2.y, linePaint);
}
}

Basically, I need to draw the new graphics as a layer on top of the last, so what I'm looking for is a way to carry the image of the last canvas to the current. I have tried to figure it out myself using the canvas.setBitmap() method but it acts very funny.

Android : Way To Draw Nine Patch Onto Canvas?

Jan 24, 2010

I'm trying to draw a nine patch onto a Canvas object on the Android. What seems strange is that although I generated my nine patch using the draw9patch tool, the constructor for NinePatch requires an additional byte array called the "chunk" to construct the nine patch. Why isn't this simpler? What is the "chunk"? And if you have done this yourself, how did you go about it?

Android :: OpenGL ES Canvas ?

Jun 13, 2010

I'm working on an OpenGL ES game using the NDK. My min SDK version is 1.6. I have created an OpenGL Es 1.0 renderer in Java and am calling a native JNI method in that renderloop.

The problem I'm having is that it seems that the resolution of the rendering context is limited. When using the emulator I'm getting a rendering canvas of 480x320, which is fine. Now; when I use my HTC Desire I am only getting a canvas of 533x320 while the native resolution of this phone is 800x480px.

Android :: How To Increase FPS When Draw On Canvas - Now 20 - Desired 40-50

Jan 18, 2010

First I want to say that I have read many articles on this subject in this forum and on some external resources(very helpful was Robert Green's diary at www.rbgrn.net and www.droidnova.com).

However, despite all of this I want to start topic regarding FPS, and ask for advice from experienced game developers on Android platform.

My main question is "How to improve FPS when draw on Canvas?"

I have implemented simple 2D arcade game skeleton for testing purpose. Now I have ~20 FPS and want to increase this value to 40-50 FPS, if this is possible of course. I know about Open GL ES, but so far I am interested in Canvas.

In every frame I draw following stuff on the screen: - Canvas.drawColor(Color.BLACK) - to clear the screen - 1 spaceship PNG 24x24 image 1.25 kb - 5 asteroids PNG 64x64 image ~8 kb each - from 1 to 30 bullets PNG 8x8 image 299 b - 4 30x30 Rectangles - to control objects on the screen

After running my app, in logcat I can see following output data: - Average FPS: 20 (Total frames drawn: 1945 in 97 seconds) - Average onDraw: 32 ms (clear canvas: 3, draw game stuff: 26, draw controls: 1) - Average updatePhysics: 1 ms

From this output I can assume, that my main problem here is "draw game stuff" wich includes: - draw 1 spaceship - draw 5 asteroids - draw from 1 to 30 bullets

Here is my code:........................

Android :: Draw Multiple Shapes Using Loop - Canvas

Aug 7, 2010

I am very new to android development and have been trying to draw a square comprised of multiple smaller rectangles of different colours... Like a Mosaic essentially. Basically at the moment I am reading values from a file which assigns the colour to the smaller Rects. I am using a pair of nested for loops to try to draw the small Rects sequentially, line by line. However when the program finishes there is only one small Rect drawn which is the last one to be drawn and its colour corresponds to the first value read from the file. Here is some of my code to show you what I mean:

public SnapshotDraw(Context context) {
super(context);

for(int a = 0; a < 63; a++){
for(int b = 0; b < 63; b++){
fileName = PREFIX + "2" + EXTENSION;..............

Android :: Draw And Scale A Bitmap On A Canvas Using Bicubic Interpolation

Mar 25, 2010

I want to draw a bitmap on a canvas with bigger size than it is. I can use canvas.drawBitmap(bitmap, null, destRect, null); but that gives a poor quality, as the result is pixelated, if the source image is sightly smaller than the destination rectangle. How can i draw my bitmap using bilinear or bicubic resampling?

Android : Is It Faster To Draw Directly On Portrait / Landscape Layout?

May 14, 2009

Presumably one layout or other must be native to the O/S and the other layout needs an expensive internal rotation + transformation in order to display in correct position.

Android :: Draw A Bitmap - Using OpenGL

Aug 30, 2010

I have a byte array of RGB values, just like the contents(without header) of a *.bmp file. What I want to do is, draw the corresponding bitmap on Android, using OpenGL.

It seems that OpenGL ES doesn't have a single API that will do, it true?

If true, how can I do this?

Actually, I can draw it in JAVA code, but it's too slow and costs too much CPU time. So I want to try drawing it with OpenGL. Is there any other advises? Or maybe OpenGL can't be the right answer?

Android :: Draw Text In OpenGL ES

Aug 27, 2009

I'm currently developing a small OpenGL game for the Android platform and I wonder if there's an easy way to render text on top of the rendered frame (like a HUD with the player´s score etc). The text would need to use a custom font also. I've seen an example using a View as an overlay, but I don't know if I want to do that since I might want to port the game to other platforms later.
