Now that we have these basic parameters set up, we just have to tell the frame to render itself and start accepting user input:.

The capabilities simply define what you want from the underlying OpenGL implementation. Here, we need to make only one change: GLCapabilities ; 4 import com. This also demonstrates nicely how tutprial use multiple textures.

Source is needed only if you are interested to debug into the JOGL source codes. Create a planet sphere.

Clevenger, published by Mercuryavailable at Amazon. I used GIMP and a scanned foto to produce a solar panel texture with font on it. Unzip the javadocs downloaded into ” javadoc “. Nehe’s Lesson 13 “2D Texts”: How do I use Jogl”. Everything in between depends on the geometry. If you wish, you can run the above code, but you will see nothing, we first need to create a window, this can be done in the constructor of the Game class:.


The position of our only light source: Personally, I have worked further on the orbiter, which currently looks like this: The profiles are beyond the scope of this tutorial. A texture is what brings a form truly alive, by adding a tjtorial that our human eyes like so much. To set up the view port, projection mode and view volume.

GLProfile ; 6 import com. Display is very similar to java. To make things simpler, we will draw only one large solar panel, which goes straight through the cylinder. Add a package name, a class name, make sure to check public static void main and press Finish:. The above template uses Swing’s JFrame tutirial the top-level container.

Nehe’s Lesson 16 “Fog Effect”: It is the most important method. You have to specify them before drawing remember that OpenGL is just a stupid pipeline You can retrieve the graphics context from a drawable as follow:.

You will note that half of the time, the solar panel is dark: Open a blank OpenGL window in Java. The primary difference to 2D is that you need to think about z coordinates and the position of the viewer “camera”, including viewing angle and such.

Second, just before drawing the sphere, we have to tell JOGL that the next thing coming should use the texture “bind the texture to the GL context”.

Planet Sphere Having a triangle is nice and all and this is actually the basis of almost all games out therebut how about tjtorial more sophisticated shapes?

The init method is called by the AWT event queue as soon as the window is ready; we can do some global settings here. I recommend that you visit that site to ensure that newer versions of these files have not been released since this tutorial was written.
