Detailed Description

In Ogre 2.0 data structures, reading data from GPU back to CPU is asynchronous.

See BufferPacked::readRequest to generate a ticket. While the async transfer is being performed, you should be doing something else.

If you call map() before the transfer is done, it will produce a stall as the CPU must wait for the GPU to finish all its pending operations.
Use queryIsTransferDone() to query if the transfer has finished. Beware not all APIs support querying async transfer status. In those cases there is no reliable way to determine when the transfer is done. An almost safe bet is to wait two frames before mapping.
Call BufferPacked::disposeTicket when you're done with this ticket.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ AsyncTicket()

Ogre::AsyncTicket::AsyncTicket ( BufferPacked creator,
StagingBuffer stagingBuffer,
size_t  elementStart,
size_t  elementCount 

◆ ~AsyncTicket()

virtual Ogre::AsyncTicket::~AsyncTicket ( )

Member Function Documentation

◆ map()

const void* Ogre::AsyncTicket::map ( )

Maps the buffer for CPU access.

Will stall if transfer from GPU memory to staging area hasn't finished yet.

Attempting to const cast the returned pointer and write to it is undefined behavior. Only call this function once. Once mapped, cannot be remapped again.
The pointer with the data read from the GPU. Read only.

◆ queryIsTransferDone()

virtual bool Ogre::AsyncTicket::queryIsTransferDone ( )

◆ unmap()

void Ogre::AsyncTicket::unmap ( )

Unmaps the pointer mapped with map().
