Android :: Is Shadow Mapping Possible In OpenGL ES 1.0?

Nov 25, 2009

I've tried casting shadow following this tutorial (which uses Stencil Buffer method): The result is a cool shadow effect. But it depends too much on geometry and thus not very flexible. Then I found a much easier way to do shadowing here: But it uses ARB_depth_texture and ARB_shadow extension. So I bet it can't be used with Android's OpenGL ES 1.0. I've tried googling for "Shadow Mapping" and "OpenGL ES" but still can't find a good tutorial. Can anyone recommend me a good place/site I can study for this please?

Android :: OpenGL Normal Mapping

Feb 9, 2009

Is it possible at this time to get normal mapping to work on android? I'm asking because it would involve the use of GL_DOT3_RGB, which is in the GL11 specs, not GL10. But GL11 is indicated as not completely supported.Is there an official list of GL11 features that do not work, or is it simply unstable and I should just avoid it for now?

Android :: Augmented Reality / Mapping GPS To OpenGL?

Feb 2, 2010

I am writing an Android AR application and have my engine working but it contains a strange behaviour that I can't seem to get fix. I am overlaying an OpenGL surface on the camera image and am placing 3D objects in the view accordingly. If I use dummy data for the location of my AR objects, i.e. LAT 10 LON 10 become x=10 y=10 on the OpenGL surface, then the overlay works perfectly. However, if I use direct GPS coordinates for my LAT and LON (e.g. LAT 12.34567890 LON 100.23456789) then all my objects either move around their location or don't appear at all. I know there are issues around using floating points and the OpenGL framework, but I've been reading around and am still having trouble stopping this behaviour. Has anyone else had this problem? Should I be using a scaling factor between my GPS and openGL surface, if so what values are good? I tried scaling my LAT and LON by 1000000 to eliminate the floating point, but it didn't help and the performance was terrible.

Android :: OpenGL ES Texture Mapping Very Slow?

May 5, 2010

I have an Android application that displays VGA (640x480) frames using OpenGL ES. The application reads each frame from a movie file and updates the texture accordingly. My problem is that, it is taking almost 30 ms. to draw each frame using OpenGL. Similar test using the Canvas/drawBitmap was around 6 ms on the same device. I'm following the same OpenGL calls that VLC Media Player is using, so I'm assuming that those are optimized for this purpose.

Android :: Mapping Multiple Textures To Cube In OpenGL ES

Jun 25, 2010

I have just began opengl programming in android and i am fairly new to opengl as well. I've been using nehe's opengl tutorials as well as insanitydesign's android ports.I successfully managed to create a cube with a single texture mapped to all its 6 faces. I even mapped multiple textures to different faces of the cube.But the way I did it was to create 6 faces seperately, have 6 seperate index and texture buffers and then using glBindTexture() with the selected texture for each face and then calling glDrawElements. Isn't there an efficient way around this. Should i use a cube map texture instead of a GL_TEXTURE_2D?

Android :: OpenGL Speed Issue - Code Contribution To Other OpenGL

Feb 25, 2009

Single Threaded OpenGL game ! (check bottom, you can download and use the helper class) Lighting disabled ! Depth Buffer disabled ! Culling enabled ! Textures disabled !

Just 176 integers (x,y values only) making 88 vertexes along with 132 index numbers making "44 triangles only"

Framerates I get is

with GL_BLENDING disabled - 145 fps approx only! enabled - 110 fps approx only!

I have the screenshot of exact code in the draw function here.. just 2 damn lines ! I have hidden only the comments.. click here to see it

variable details in the 2 lines of code =========================== ipts = 176 elements (only x and y for each vertex) totallinetriangles * 3 = 176 lineindexes = 132 elements - type "short"

Here is the screenshot of output drawing and how it will look like

OpenGL single threaded Initialization Helper ================================ Here is my OpenGL helper class.. makes the OpenGL initialization for newbies a cakewalk

I tested by rendering on the touch event only.. frame rate drops only when u touch and drag and here I have just tested by tapping and releasing gently on the emulator and on the device

Is this the device limitations ? So graphics is actually a lot lot lot slower than on iPhone ?

Android :: NDK OpenGL - Mixing Java And Native - C - Calls To OpenGL API

Jul 24, 2010

I would like to be able to use the OpenGL API from both Java and C (via NDK).

In Java, there is a GL object passed, which has all GL methods on it.

In C, you just talk to the native library.

In a single onDrawFrame callback (for which Java is passed a GL), can I use methods on the GL object, and also call NDK methods which access the openGL library?

In other words, is the GL object just a wrapper for the same instance of the native library?

Android :: Shadow On Top Of A Layout On ActivityGroup / Fix It?

Jul 16, 2010

I'm trying to give my first steps on working with ActivityGroups. To be more specific, I have a parent activity with a layout containing several buttons, and another layout below them in order to add other activities' layouts by means of the "addView()" method. Well, everything works fine in functionality terms; but I'm experiencing a weird behavior inside the layout where other activities are kind of loaded into. A black line along the top border of the layout plus a slight shadow do appear when I run the application on the emulator. I have tried to play changing the paddings, margins, etc. with no success.

Has any of you experienced such weird behavior?

Jun 16, 2010

there im looking at gettin g a new phone, and this is really the deciding figure between a blackberry, iphone or android device. What im looking for is a gps app sorta like gpsed that can map my tracks and put photos on them, but that stores these maps on my phone not the internet. Also what i would like is to ba able to take a picture with my phone and quickly be able to attatch it to my map. So when i go to this map in zoomed out mode i can see all these tracks (possibly in different colors) and these pins which i can click on and see pics of that location.

Android :: Mapping Xy To Latitudelongitude

Jun 24, 2010

I'm trying to get the lat/long values, from the corners of the screen. But my getProjections don't make any sense.. I mean ... mymap.getProjection().fromPixels(0, 0) or mymap.getProjection().fromPixels(screenWidth, screenHeight) just delivers me unreal numbers..

I'm trying to set up an algorythm that would avoid cluster of graphics in the map and for that, the app needs to know which area of the screen is being showed latitude/longitude wise.

For example:

Android :: Mapping Gestures To Buttons - Possible?

Aug 26, 2009

I have a love-hate relationship with my G1, with the inability to remap keys at the top of the list. I've looked high and low for information, going so far as to try to decipher pages like this: /android_pdk/keymaps_keyboard_input.html and even reading the android platform code on github. I don't see things like page_up and page_down defined in the android keymappings. And I suspect that the original scancodes are being assigned to touch gestures.Since the number keys don't have a third component could an enterprising developer map to the unused caps for missing keys? Not that it would be all that useful at this point but it would give someone a hook to build on. Or if that isn't possible, how about a virtual floating task bar kind of thing (maybe mostly transparent overlay?) that maps gestures like the swipe up/swipe down and more traditional arrows and enter type keys for the trackball? This isn't entirely a nit-picky kind of request. I have a medical condition that in the winter makes my fingertips extremely painful and the trackball hurts. I'm guessing that there weren't many arthritis sufferers on the Android development team, either. You would think that the touch screen should make things easier, not harder. Even my old, old Omnigo and HP100LX had utilities to remap keys, so it seems odd that there isn't some kind of app that could be developed. I think if I had enough time (which I don't) I might be able to eventually puzzle out a crude version of the task bar thing but I'd much rather pay a couple of dollars in the market.

Android :: Good App For Mapping Runs?

Aug 7, 2010

Ok so here's the deal guys and gals, I am trying to have my phone assist me with my running. There are plenty of apps that will track my run via gps if I bring my phone on the run with me, but I don't wanna do that. I want to be able to map a course out, enter how long it took me, save the map and even share it with friends. Ideally the app would have the gps running features I mentioned above just on case I ever do start bringing my phone with me. Here is an example of what I mean in website form (unfortunately they make a sweet app for the iphone but their android version is pretty awful right -

Android :: Custom Mapping Application

Aug 16, 2010

I am looking for an application that can create a map by me carrying the phone and walking a certain path.There is a 300 acre park near where I live. The maps they provide are way off base. I would like to walk all of the trails and have the Droid record where I am walking.You know, this may be easier than I think using ASE and writing a Python script. I'll just get the location every half second and write it out to a file. It'll be interesting to see how the maps turn out, seeing the low resolution of the GPS receiver.

Android :: Efficient Mapping Of Strings To Ints

Dec 29, 2009

Currently I'm using a HashMap to map the strings to int and the int values need to be frequently accessed. I'm looking for a better way to do this if possible with minimal object creation, and preferable being able to store the values as primitive ints without wrapping them with the Integer class. (Basically, the reverse of the SparseArray's int->object mapping.)

Android :: How To Run Emulator To Get 1-1 Pixel Mapping With WVGA854

How do I run the emulator with WVGA854 skin so I get a 1-1 mapping of device to screen pixels?

I tried playing with the -dpi-device option but doesn't seem to help.
