Detailed Description

VSG extension [PREVIEW] Utility class to render a scene with an OpenGl context.

[C++] Reference counting:
This is a reference counted object, similar to a node or path. It can only be destroyed by incrementing and decrementing the reference count. The initial reference count is 0. You may use the ref() and unref() methods, but we recommend using the SoRef "smart pointer" template.



What is a Preview Feature ?:

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

SoRenderAreaCore::SoRenderAreaCore ( SoGLContext glContext  ) 

Build a new SoRenderAreaCore that uses an existing glContext.

Member Function Documentation

virtual void SoRenderAreaCore::activateStereo ( bool  activate  )  [virtual]

Activate (or deactivate) stereo rendering with specified parameters (see setStereoParameters).

The stereo mode is determined by which subclass is used to set the parameters. For example, passing an SoRawStereoParameters object activates OpenGL "quad buffered" stereo (if possible on the current graphics board).


    • Stereo rendering needs a SoStereoCamera to be activated. The edited camera is the first stereo camera found in the current scene graph. If no stereo camera is found, a warning is displayed. This method must be called to update the edited camera if the scene graph changed.

    Implements SiRenderAreaStereo.

Implements SiRenderAreaStereo.

virtual SbEventHandler<RenderEventArg&>& SoRenderAreaCore::onStartRender (  )  [virtual]

Returns the event handler that raises when a new render starts.

Implements SiRenderArea.

virtual SbBool SoRenderAreaCore::processEvent ( const SoEvent event  )  [virtual]

Processes the passed event by applying an SoHandleEventAction to the scene graph managed here.

Returns TRUE if the event was handled by a node.

Implements SiRenderAreaInteractive.

virtual SbBool SoRenderAreaCore::processEvents ( const std::vector< const SoEvent * > &  eventList  )  [virtual]

Processes the passed event by applying an SoHandleEventAction to the scene graph managed here.

Returns TRUE if at least one event was handled by a node.

Implements SiRenderAreaInteractive.

virtual RenderStatus SoRenderAreaCore::render (  )  [virtual]

Applies an SoGLRenderAction to the scene graph managed here.

See RenderStatus documentation for details on the returned value. The rendering may have been aborted, so check this function result before calling swap buffer for example

Implements SiRenderArea.

virtual void SoRenderAreaCore::setAntialiasingMode ( SoSceneManager::AntialiasingMode  mode  )  [virtual]

Define the antialiasing mode.

mode The antialiasing algorithm. Default is NO_ANTIALIASING which turns off antialiasing.

Implements SiRenderAreaAntialiasing.

virtual void SoRenderAreaCore::setAntialiasingQuality ( float  quality  )  [virtual]

Define the antialiasing quality value.

quality The quality is a factor in the range [0.0,1.0].
Default is 0.0. The value 0.0 turns off antialiasing.

Implements SiRenderAreaAntialiasing.

virtual void SoRenderAreaCore::setClearColor ( const SbColorRGBA color  )  [virtual]

Defines the RGBA value used when the color buffer is cleared.

See also setClearPolicy. Default is transparent black (0,0,0,0).

This is equivalent to setBackgroundColor() in the classical view classes.

color RGBA value used to clear the color buffer.

Implements SiRenderArea.

virtual void SoRenderAreaCore::setClearDepth ( float  depth  )  [virtual]

Defines the depth value used when the depth buffer is cleared.

See also setClearPolicy. Default is 1. Range is 0..1.

depth value used to clear the depth buffer.

Implements SiRenderArea.

virtual void SoRenderAreaCore::setClearPolicy ( ClearPolicy  policy  )  [virtual]

Defines the color buffer and depth buffer clear policy.

See also setClearColor and setClearDepth. Use enum ClearPolicy Default is COLORBUFFER_AND_DEPTHBUFFER.

policy color buffer and depth buffer clear policy.

Implements SiRenderArea.

virtual void SoRenderAreaCore::setGLRenderAction ( SoGLRenderAction glAction  )  [virtual]

Defines the render action used for rendering.

virtual void SoRenderAreaCore::setInteractiveMode ( SoInteractiveComplexity::InteractiveMode  mode  )  [virtual]

Set the current interactive mode.

mode interactive mode. Default is AUTO.

Implements SiRenderAreaInteractive.

virtual void SoRenderAreaCore::setSceneGraph ( SoNode newScene  )  [virtual]

Defines the scene graph which is managed here.

This is the Open Inventor scene which will be traversed for rendering and event processing.

Implements SiRenderArea.

virtual void SoRenderAreaCore::setSize ( const SbVec2i32 size  )  [virtual]

Defines the size to use for rendering.

Typically this method must be called when the render area has been resized or moved.

Implements SiRenderArea.

virtual void SoRenderAreaCore::setStereoParameters ( SoStereoParameters parameters  )  [virtual]

Defines the stereo parameters.

parameters Provides specific parameters for a stereo mode. Use one of the subclasses of SoStereoParameters.


    • SoRenderAreaCore makes a copy of the parameter values. The caller is responsible for allocation and destruction of the params object. As a copy of the parameter values is done, the object can be destroyed after calling this method.

    Implements SiRenderAreaStereo.

virtual void SoRenderAreaCore::setStillSuperSamplingDelay ( unsigned int  delay  )  [virtual]

Set delay for supersampling when "still" (not interacting).

If greater than 0, images will be supersampled after the specified delay.

delay The delay is in milliseconds.
If greater than 0, images will be supersampled after the specified delay See also setStillSuperSamplingQuality.

Implements SiRenderAreaStillSuperSampling.

virtual void SoRenderAreaCore::setStillSuperSamplingQuality ( float  quality  )  [virtual]

Set quality for supersampling when "still" (not interacting).

When quality is greater than 0, still images will be automatically supersampled.

quality The quality is a factor in the range [0.0,1.0].
Default value is 0.0. Use the value 0.0 to turn off still supersampling. 0.5 is a typical value. See also setStillSuperSamplingDelay.

Implements SiRenderAreaStillSuperSampling.

virtual void SoRenderAreaCore::setTransparencyType ( SoGLRenderAction::TransparencyType  type  )  [virtual]

Defines the algorithm for rendering transparent objects.

Default is NO_SORT. See SoGLRenderAction for possible transparency types. See also SoGLRenderAction::TransparencyType.

Note: When using transparency types with DELAYED in the name, the depth buffer is not updated (depth buffer writes are disabled) while rendering transparent objects. As a result complex 3D shapes may not be rendered correctly.

Implements SiRenderAreaTransparency.
