Detailed Description

Class encapsulates rendering properties of an object.

Remarks
Ogre's material class encapsulates ALL aspects of the visual appearance, of an object. It also includes other flags which might not be traditionally thought of as material properties such as culling modes and depth buffer settings, but these affect the appearance of the rendered object and are convenient to attach to the material since it keeps all the settings in one place. This is different to Direct3D which treats a material as just the colour components (diffuse, specular) and not texture maps etc. An Ogre Material can be thought of as equivalent to a 'Shader'.
A Material can be rendered in multiple different ways depending on the hardware available. You may configure a Material to use high-complexity fragment shaders, but these won't work on every card; therefore a Technique is an approach to creating the visual effect you are looking for. You are advised to create fallback techniques with lower hardware requirements if you decide to use advanced features. In addition, you also might want lower-detail techniques for distant geometry.
Each technique can be made up of multiple passes. Programmable passes, however, cannot be split down automatically, so if the active graphics card cannot handle the technique which contains these passes, OGRE will try to find another technique which the card can do. If, at the end of the day, the card cannot handle any of the techniques which are listed for the material, the engine will render the geometry plain white, which should alert you to the problem.

Note: Using multiple passes hasn't been tested in Ogre-Next 2.x at all and may no longer work. It definitely needs at least RenderQueue::V1_LEGACY

Ogre comes configured with a number of default settings for a newly created material. These can be changed if you wish by retrieving the default material settings through SceneManager::getDefaultMaterialSettings. Any changes you make to the Material returned from this method will apply to any materials created from this point onward.

Member Function Documentation

◆ _getLodValues()

const LodValueArray* Ogre::Material::_getLodValues ( ) const
inline

◆ _notifyNeedsRecompile()

void Ogre::Material::_notifyNeedsRecompile ( )

Tells the material that it needs recompilation.

◆ applyTextureAliases()

bool Ogre::Material::applyTextureAliases ( const AliasTextureNamePairList aliasList,
const bool  apply = true 
) const

Applies texture names to Texture Unit State with matching texture name aliases.

All techniques, passes, and Texture Unit States within the material are checked. If matching texture aliases are found then true is returned.

Parameters
aliasListis a map container of texture alias, texture name pairs
applyset true to apply the texture aliases else just test to see if texture alias matches are found.
Returns
True if matching texture aliases were found in the material.

◆ clone()

MaterialPtr Ogre::Material::clone ( const String newName,
bool  changeGroup = false,
const String newGroup = BLANKSTRING 
) const

Creates a new copy of this material with the same settings but a new name.

Parameters
newNameThe name for the cloned material
changeGroupIf true, the resource group of the clone is changed
newGroupOnly required if changeGroup is true; the new group to assign

◆ compile()

void Ogre::Material::compile ( bool  autoManageTextureUnits = true)

'Compiles' this Material.

Remarks
Compiling a material involves determining which Techniques are supported on the card on which OGRE is currently running, and for fixed-function Passes within those Techniques, splitting the passes down where they contain more TextureUnitState instances than the current card has texture units.
This process is automatically done when the Material is loaded, but may be repeated if you make some procedural changes.
Parameters
autoManageTextureUnitsIf true, when a fixed function pass has too many TextureUnitState entries than the card has texture units, the Pass in question will be split into more than one Pass in order to emulate the Pass. If you set this to false and this situation arises, an Exception will be thrown.

◆ copyDetailsTo()

void Ogre::Material::copyDetailsTo ( MaterialPtr mat) const

Copies the details of this material into another, preserving the target's handle and name (unlike operator=) but copying everything else.

Parameters
matWeak reference to material which will receive this material's settings.

◆ createTechnique()

Technique* Ogre::Material::createTechnique ( )

Creates a new Technique for this Material.

Remarks
A Technique is a single way of rendering geometry in order to achieve the effect you are intending in a material. There are many reason why you would want more than one - the main one being to handle variable graphics card abilities; you might have one technique which is impressive but only runs on 4th-generation graphics cards, for example. In this case you will want to create at least one fallback Technique. OGRE will work out which Techniques a card can support and pick the best one.
If multiple Techniques are available, the order in which they are created is important - the engine will consider lower-indexed Techniques to be preferable to higher-indexed Techniques, ie when asked for the 'best' technique it will return the first one in the technique list which is supported by the hardware.

◆ getBestTechnique()

Technique* Ogre::Material::getBestTechnique ( unsigned short  lodIndex = 0,
const Renderable rend = 0 
)

Gets the best supported technique.

Remarks
This method returns the lowest-index supported Technique in this material (since lower-indexed Techniques are considered to be better than higher-indexed ones).
The best supported technique is only available after this material has been compiled, which typically happens on loading the material. Therefore, if this method returns NULL, try calling Material::load.
Parameters
lodIndexThe material LOD index to use
rendOptional parameter specifying the Renderable that is requesting this technique. Only used if no valid technique for the active material scheme is found, at which point it is passed to MaterialManager::Listener::handleSchemeNotFound as information.

◆ getCompilationRequired()

bool Ogre::Material::getCompilationRequired ( ) const
inline

Gets the compilation status of the material.

Returns
True if the material needs recompilation.

◆ getLodValueIterator()

LodValueIterator Ogre::Material::getLodValueIterator ( ) const

Gets an iterator over the list of values transformed by the LodStrategy at which each LOD comes into effect.

Remarks
Note that the iterator returned from this method is not totally analogous to the one passed in by calling setLodLevels - the list includes a zero entry at the start (since the highest LOD starts at value 0). Also, the values returned are after being transformed by LodStrategy::transformUserValue.

◆ getNumLodLevels() [1/2]

unsigned short Ogre::Material::getNumLodLevels ( const String schemeName) const

Gets the number of levels-of-detail this material has in the given scheme, based on Technique::setLodIndex.

◆ getNumLodLevels() [2/2]

unsigned short Ogre::Material::getNumLodLevels ( unsigned short  schemeIndex) const

Gets the number of levels-of-detail this material has in the given scheme, based on Technique::setLodIndex.

Remarks
Note that this will not be up to date until the material has been compiled.

◆ getNumSupportedTechniques()

unsigned short Ogre::Material::getNumSupportedTechniques ( ) const

Retrieves the number of supported techniques.

◆ getNumTechniques()

unsigned short Ogre::Material::getNumTechniques ( ) const

Retrieves the number of techniques.

◆ getSupportedTechnique()

Technique* Ogre::Material::getSupportedTechnique ( unsigned short  index)

Gets the indexed supported technique.

◆ getSupportedTechniqueIterator()

TechniqueIterator Ogre::Material::getSupportedTechniqueIterator ( )

Gets an iterator over all the Techniques which are supported by the current card.

Remarks
The supported technique list is only available after this material has been compiled, which typically happens on loading the material. Therefore, if this method returns an empty list, try calling Material::load.

◆ getTechnique() [1/2]

Technique* Ogre::Material::getTechnique ( const String name)

searches for the named technique.

Return 0 if technique with name is not found

◆ getTechnique() [2/2]

Technique* Ogre::Material::getTechnique ( unsigned short  index)

Gets the indexed technique.

LodValueIterator Ogre::Material::getUserLodValueIterator ( ) const

Gets an iterator over the user-defined list of values which are internally transfomed by the LodStrategy.

Remarks
Note that the iterator returned from this method is not totally analogous to the one passed in by calling setLodLevels - the list includes a zero entry at the start (since the highest LOD starts at value 0). Also, the values returned are after being transformed by LodStrategy::transformUserValue.

◆ isTransparent()

void Ogre::Material::setAmbient ( const ColourValue ambient)

Sets the ambient colour reflectance properties for every Pass in every Technique.

Note
This property has been moved to the Pass class, which is accessible via the Technique. For simplicity, this method allows you to set these properties for every current Technique, and for every current Pass within those Techniques. If you need more precision, retrieve the Technique and Pass instances and set the property there.

See also
Pass::setFog

◆ setLodLevels()

void Ogre::Material::setLodLevels ( const LodValueArray lodValues)

Sets the distance at which level-of-detail (LOD) levels come into effect.

Remarks
You should only use this if you have assigned LOD indexes to the Technique instances attached to this Material. If you have done so, you should call this method to determine the distance at which the lowe levels of detail kick in. The decision about what distance is actually used is a combination of this and the LOD bias applied to both the current Camera and the current Entity.
Parameters
lodValuesA vector of Reals which indicate the LOD value at which to switch to lower details. They are listed in LOD index order, starting at index 1 (ie the first level down from the highest level 0, which automatically applies from a value of 0). These are 'user values', before being potentially transformed by the strategy, so for the distance strategy this is an unsquared distance for example.

◆ setMacroblock()

void Ogre::Material::setMacroblock ( const HlmsMacroblock macroblock)

Sets the macroblock for all passes.

Note
This property has been moved to the Pass class, which is accessible via the Technique.

See also
Pass::setPointSize

◆ setReceiveShadows()

void Ogre::Material::setReceiveShadows ( bool  enabled)
inline

Sets whether objects using this material will receive shadows.

Remarks
This method allows a material to opt out of receiving shadows, if it would otherwise do so. Shadows will not be cast on any objects unless the scene is set up to support shadows (
See also
SceneManager::setShadowTechnique), and not all techniques cast shadows on all objects. In any case, if you have a need to prevent shadows being received by material, this is the method you call to do it.
Note
Transparent materials never receive shadows despite this setting. The default is to receive shadows.

◆ setSamplerblock()

void Ogre::Material::setSamplerblock ( const HlmsSamplerblock samplerblock)

Set samplerblock for every texture unit in every Technique and Pass.

Note
This property has been moved to the TextureUnitState class, which is accessible via the Technique and Pass.

This method allows a material to cast a shadow, even if it is transparent. By default, transparent materials neither cast nor receive shadows. Shadows will not be cast on any objects unless the scene is set up to support shadows (
See also
SceneManager::setShadowTechnique), and not all techniques cast shadows on all objects.
