Home of the Open Source Delphi&C++Builder OpenGL tool. About. GLScene is an OpenGL based 3D library. It was initially written for Delphi, now it is running in C++ Builder, Kylix, Delphi and Lazarus. Introduction. This is a very basic introduction on how to combine GLScene ([[1]]) and Newton Game Dynamics (NGD, [[2]]) when writing a.

However, much of the content still applies. A reference to the glcube was stored in the newtonbodyuserdata before. GLScene objects can be arranged as sub-objects of other GLScene objects and can be set to have relative position to their parent. Where is the tutorial? This is also the way to apply gravity when CoB and CoG do not coincide. This page regroups the most frequently asked questions and their answers. Jan Zizka’s 36 page beginner’s guide copyright refers to Delphi rather than Lazarus and uses some outdated filenames.

In short, this means it is not public domain and the agreement consists in what is stated in the MPL, that is: All 3D objects, from sphere to camera to light are edited from the TGLScene editor, double-click on a TGLScene component and a hierarchical scene editor will popup, allowing to compose most of your scenes at design-time.

Several of the sources of help are for old versions of GLScene and for Delphi rather than Lazarus, but can still be useful if you make allowances for differences such as changed package names.

The Newton-GLScene binding based on Tag and User Data previously described will be very usefull here, since you will be able to write UpdateGraphicObject callback in a generic way, retrieving the graphical object to be updated from the body passed to it.

Since the reference count is set to 1 when you create the collision object, and then incremented each time you connect this collision to a body, it is required to decrement the count by releasing the collision object when you don’t need to tutoriak it in the code any more.

Check the “Info” form to know at design-time which OpenGL driver is used: Similarly we need to update the position of the GLCube in the Glworld when the postion of our body in de newton world changes. If it’s glsceje related, you’ll find it here.

All the source paths must be added Source, Base, FileFormats, etc. Here is a quick reminder, if not compressed: We have used the two page introductory tutorial on delphigamedev. When you download code, it will be from one of these tutoril f.

It is regularly updated, but GLScene is currently growing faster than the help file. There are various 3D resources I found on the web: I wrote this document mainly for myself as a kind of reference. A dummy cube can be used when you have no “physical” parent for objects that must be moved together, it can also come in handy when you have complex sorting or rendering needs depth-sorting for transparency, mirrors, etc.

The SourceForge wiki still includes features and a FAQbut many of the links on the site are broken. When you hit OK it will pull all the files and subfolders in the Source “module” on the server to a new folder called Source glsfene your computer. Once you’ve checked out everything you want, you’ll notice these folders have a green highlight to lgscene.

You now have to pick the camera in the sceneviewer’s Camera property, the viewer will no render from the camera point of view.


To solve this, add “Jpeg” or any relevant unit to one of your uses clause. If the coordinates are not right, but the texture is loaded, the object will most likely be given a uniform color.

If you want to apply a force on a arbitrary point on the body we need to rewrite it as a equivalent force and torque system acting at the CoB. The help file has been generated automatically by PasDoc tutoriql, so depended on the depth of commenting in the source.

GLScene – Frequently Asked Questions

We now have to place the newton body at the correct position and orientation in our world. We can now simple copy the transformation matrix from the newton body to the glscene object.

Extra resources, modelers and editors: Place the camera and lightsource somewhere away from the cube else you won’t see it. A few things before you ask in the newgroup: Tutorials We have used the two page introductory tutorial on delphigamedev.

TJpegImage is not compiled in the compiled exe. Finally the DummyCube is also commonly used as Camera Target with the Tutoriao a child of its target dummy cube or vice-versa.

How can I have a cube with N different textures? Make sure you defined the bitmap’s size as well as pixel depth f. It links to the SourceForge wiki page Rotate Objects for the next page of the tutorial. Easy once you know how to do it
