#104 closed defect (fixed)

saving display to tiff or ppm garbled when NVIZ is not top window

Reported by: dylan Owned by: grass-dev@…
Priority: minor Milestone: 6.4.0
Component: Default Version: svn-trunk
Keywords: NVIZ openGL Cc:
CPU: Unspecified Platform: Unspecified

Description

With a recent version of NVIZ garbled images are created when saving either tiff or ppm files, when NVIZ is not:

  1. the top-most window

or

  1. not completely on-screen (moved such that part of the window is off-screen)

This is on Linux x86. Not sure if this is an OpenGL bug, or what...

It's not an OpenGL bug, but a limitation. If you render to a window, the rendering is clipped to the visible portion (the part that's on-screen and not obscured by another window). If you read the rendered image (with glReadPixels()), the clipped portions will contain garbage.

The only reliable way to generate image files using OpenGL is to render to an off-screen target such as a pBuffer or GLXPixmap. But those require support from the driver, and we haven't had much luck with either approach (of course, there might be bugs in the code which creates the pBuffer or GLXPixmap).

Actually, using a GLXPixmap works fine for me with both Cygwin's XWin.exe and X.org with the "nv" driver (that's the FOSS driver with no DRI/DRM support; I haven't tried the proprietary "nvidia" driver yet).

Neither of those X servers support GLX 1.3, so I haven't tested pBuffers yet.

Some updates (2008-03-26 SVN) & "nvidia" driver with DRI/GLX enabled.

  1. export to full-res PPM, no error messages but results in black image.

Creating PBuffer Using GLX 1.3 Final Assembled Image will be 3185 x 4096 Writing Tile 1 of 16 Writing Tile 2 of 16 Writing Tile 3 of 16 Writing Tile 4 of 16 Writing Tile 5 of 16 Writing Tile 6 of 16 Writing Tile 7 of 16 Writing Tile 8 of 16 Writing Tile 9 of 16 Writing Tile 10 of 16 Writing Tile 11 of 16 Writing Tile 12 of 16 Writing Tile 13 of 16 Writing Tile 14 of 16 Writing Tile 15 of 16 Writing Tile 16 of 16 Assembling Tiles Destroy pbuffer


  1. set env. variables:

export GRASS_NO_GLX_PIXMAPS=TRUE export GRASS_NO_GLX_PBUFFERS=TRUE

export to full-res PPM, resulting image is at the coarse grid resolution. After setting the coarse resolution to 1 and the fine resolution to 1 the output file appears to be correct.


Final Assembled Image will be 3909 x 4096 Writing Tile 1 of 49 Writing Tile 2 of 49 Writing Tile 3 of 49 Writing Tile 4 of 49 Writing Tile 5 of 49 Writing Tile 6 of 49 Writing Tile 7 of 49 Writing Tile 8 of 49 Writing Tile 9 of 49 Writing Tile 10 of 49 Writing Tile 11 of 49 Writing Tile 12 of 49 Writing Tile 13 of 49 Writing Tile 14 of 49 Writing Tile 15 of 49 Writing Tile 16 of 49 Writing Tile 17 of 49 Writing Tile 18 of 49 Writing Tile 19 of 49 Writing Tile 20 of 49 Writing Tile 21 of 49 Writing Tile 22 of 49 Writing Tile 23 of 49 Writing Tile 24 of 49 Writing Tile 25 of 49 Writing Tile 26 of 49 Writing Tile 27 of 49 Writing Tile 28 of 49 Writing Tile 29 of 49 Writing Tile 30 of 49 Writing Tile 31 of 49 Writing Tile 32 of 49 Writing Tile 33 of 49 Writing Tile 34 of 49 Writing Tile 35 of 49 Writing Tile 36 of 49 Writing Tile 37 of 49 Writing Tile 38 of 49 Writing Tile 39 of 49 Writing Tile 40 of 49 Writing Tile 41 of 49 Writing Tile 42 of 49 Writing Tile 43 of 49 Writing Tile 44 of 49 Writing Tile 45 of 49 Writing Tile 46 of 49 Writing Tile 47 of 49 Writing Tile 48 of 49 Writing Tile 49 of 49 Assembling Tiles


It seems like Glynn's recent changes + setting environmental variables is the trick to getting things to work using the "nvidia" driver.

Creating PBuffer Using GLX 1.3

I think I've fixed this; at least, it works on my system.

The main change was to create a new context rather than using the existing context.

I've also changed the glXChooseFBConfig() call so that it only reports FBConfigs which are likely to actually work (e.g. those which are compatible with pBuffers and have a depth buffer).

On my system unless I export GRASS_NO_GLX_PIXMAPS=TRUE, NVIZ crashes at saving image as maximum resolution PPM, with the following error:

Create PixMap Using GLX 1.1
X Error of failed request:  GLXBadContext
  Major opcode of failed request:  143 (GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  5 (X_GLXMakeCurrent)
  Serial number of failed request:  5128
  Current serial number in output stream:  5128

After exporting GRASS_NO_GLX_PIXMAPS=TRUE all is OK.

Replying to msieczka:

Nothing out of the ordinary there.

The context, Pixmap and GLXPixmap are all being created with respect to the same XVisualInfo* value.

The GLXPixmap case works fine on Cygwin's XWin.exe, X.org with "nv" driver, and X.org with "nvidia" driver (the first two with X.org's libGL, the last with nVidia's). This is with X.org 7.2 & server 1.3.0.0.

This is looking like an issue with the Radeon driver.

Note that we handle the case where the server fails to create the GLXPixmap. The problem is that it creates the GLXPixmap then complains when you try to use it.

One finale check: can you try "export LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose" before running it, and see if that sheds any light?

It doesn't seem to. The only difference is that now, at NVIZ startup, it prints additionaly:

libGL error: 
Can't open configuration file /etc/drirc: No such file or directory.
libGL error: 
Can't open configuration file /path/to/my/home/.drirc: No such file or directory.

Does it matter?

I can't get vesa driver to work (X starts but terminates right away without errors or significant warnigs in the log file). If time allows I'll try fglrx and post the results then.

Can you try the patch. It installs an error handler which (hopefully) prevents the error from terminating the program.

Right; I had the error base and major opcode confused. Can you try this one instead?

If that doesn't work, try:

Tk_CreateErrorHandler(dpy, -1, -1, -1, Error_Handler, NULL);

to (try to) install a catch-all handler.

Allright! Same "X Error" crops out but no crash this time and the full-res ppm output completes.

If that doesn't work, try:

Tk_CreateErrorHandler(dpy, -1, -1, -1, Error_Handler, NULL);

I didn't bother as the first option worked. Do you want me to anyway? Could it be any better this way?

I'm marking this as resolved.

The original problem (with using the window for rendering when creating PPM files) is essentially a "cantfix".

With the fixes to the code which uses GLX Pixmaps and pBuffers, you should only need to use the window on systems where no other option is available (and in that case, there is simply no solution; you just have to manually ensure that nothing occludes the window during rendering).

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
