Member Typedef Documentation

◆ HardwareAnimationDataList

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ VertexData() [1/2]

Ogre::VertexData::VertexData ( HardwareBufferManagerBase mgr = 0)

Constructor.

Note
This constructor creates the VertexDeclaration and VertexBufferBinding automatically, and arranges for their deletion afterwards.
Parameters
mgrOptional HardwareBufferManager from which to create resources

◆ VertexData() [2/2]

Ogre::VertexData::VertexData ( VertexDeclaration dcl,
VertexBufferBinding bind 
)

Constructor.

Note
This constructor receives the VertexDeclaration and VertexBufferBinding from the caller, and as such does not arrange for their deletion afterwards, the caller remains responsible for that.
Parameters
dclThe VertexDeclaration to use
bindThe VertexBufferBinding to use

◆ ~VertexData()

Ogre::VertexData::~VertexData ( )

Member Function Documentation

◆ clone()

VertexData* Ogre::VertexData::clone ( bool  copyData = true,
HardwareBufferManagerBase mgr = 0 
) const

Clones this vertex data, potentially including replicating any vertex buffers.

Parameters
copyDataWhether to create new vertex buffers too or just reference the existing ones
mgrIf supplied, the buffer manager through which copies should be made
Remarks
The caller is expected to delete the returned pointer when ready

◆ prepareForShadowVolume()

void Ogre::VertexData::prepareForShadowVolume ( void  )

Modifies the vertex data to be suitable for use for rendering shadow geometry.

Remarks
Preparing vertex data to generate a shadow volume involves firstly ensuring that the vertex buffer containing the positions is a standalone vertex buffer, with no other components in it. This method will therefore break apart any existing vertex buffers if position is sharing a vertex buffer. Secondly, it will double the size of this vertex buffer so that there are 2 copies of the position data for the mesh. The first half is used for the original, and the second half is used for the 'extruded' version. The vertex count used to render will remain the same though, so as not to add any overhead to regular rendering of the object. Both copies of the position are required in one buffer because shadow volumes stretch from the original mesh to the extruded version.
It's important to appreciate that this method can fundamentally change the structure of your vertex buffers, although in reality they will be new buffers. As it happens, if other objects are using the original buffers then they will be unaffected because the reference counting will keep them intact. However, if you have made any assumptions about the structure of the vertex data in the buffers of this object, you may have to rethink them.

◆ reorganiseBuffers() [1/2]

void Ogre::VertexData::reorganiseBuffers ( VertexDeclaration newDeclaration,
const BufferUsageList bufferUsage,
HardwareBufferManagerBase mgr = 0 
)

Reorganises the data in the vertex buffers according to the new vertex declaration passed in.

Note that new vertex buffers are created and written to, so if the buffers being referenced by this vertex data object are also used by others, then the original buffers will not be damaged by this operation. Once this operation has completed, the new declaration passed in will overwrite the current one.

Parameters
newDeclarationThe vertex declaration which will be used for the reorganised buffer state. Note that the new declaration must not include any elements which do not already exist in the current declaration; you can drop elements by excluding them from the declaration if you wish, however.
bufferUsageVector of usage flags which indicate the usage options for each new vertex buffer created. The indexes of the entries must correspond to the buffer binding values referenced in the declaration.
mgrOptional pointer to the manager to use to create new declarations and buffers etc. If not supplied, the HardwareBufferManager singleton will be used

◆ reorganiseBuffers() [2/2]

void Ogre::VertexData::reorganiseBuffers ( VertexDeclaration newDeclaration,
HardwareBufferManagerBase mgr = 0 
)

Reorganises the data in the vertex buffers according to the new vertex declaration passed in.

Note that new vertex buffers are created and written to, so if the buffers being referenced by this vertex data object are also used by others, then the original buffers will not be damaged by this operation. Once this operation has completed, the new declaration passed in will overwrite the current one. This version of the method derives the buffer usages from the existing buffers, by using the 'most flexible' usage from the equivalent sources.

Parameters
newDeclarationThe vertex declaration which will be used for the reorganised buffer state. Note that the new delcaration must not include any elements which do not already exist in the current declaration; you can drop elements by excluding them from the declaration if you wish, however.
mgrOptional pointer to the manager to use to create new declarations and buffers etc. If not supplied, the HardwareBufferManager singleton will be used

◆ closeGapsInBindings()

void Ogre::VertexData::closeGapsInBindings ( void  )

Remove any gaps in the vertex buffer bindings.

Remarks
This is useful if you've removed elements and buffers from this vertex data and want to remove any gaps in the vertex buffer bindings. This method is mainly useful when reorganising vertex data manually.
Note
This will cause binding index of the elements in the vertex declaration to be altered to new binding index.

◆ removeUnusedBuffers()

void Ogre::VertexData::removeUnusedBuffers ( void  )

Remove all vertex buffers that never used by the vertex declaration.

Remarks
This is useful if you've removed elements from the vertex declaration and want to unreference buffers that never used any more. This method is mainly useful when reorganising vertex data manually.
Note
This also remove any gaps in the vertex buffer bindings.

◆ convertPackedColour()

void Ogre::VertexData::convertPackedColour ( VertexElementType  srcType,
VertexElementType  destType 
)

Convert all packed colour values (VET_COLOUR_*) in buffers used to another type.

Parameters
srcTypeThe source colour type to assume if the ambiguous VET_COLOUR is encountered.
destTypeThe destination colour type, must be VET_COLOUR_ABGR or VET_COLOUR_ARGB.

◆ allocateHardwareAnimationElements()

ushort Ogre::VertexData::allocateHardwareAnimationElements ( ushort  count,
bool  animateNormals 
)

Allocate elements to serve a holder of morph / pose target data for hardware morphing / pose blending.

Remarks
This method will allocate the given number of 3D texture coordinate sets for use as a morph target or target pose offset (3D position). These elements will be saved in hwAnimationDataList. It will also assume that the source of these new elements will be new buffers which are not bound at this time, so will start the sources to 1 higher than the current highest binding source. The caller is expected to bind these new buffers when appropriate. For morph animation the original position buffer will be the 'from' keyframe data, whilst for pose animation it will be the original vertex data. If normals are animated, then twice the number of 3D texture coordinates are required
Returns
The number of sets that were supported

◆ vertexDeclaration

VertexDeclaration* Ogre::VertexData::vertexDeclaration

Declaration of the vertex to be used in this operation.

Remarks
Note that this is created for you on construction.

◆ vertexBufferBinding

VertexBufferBinding* Ogre::VertexData::vertexBufferBinding

The vertex buffer bindings to be used.

◆ hwAnimDataItemsUsed

Referenced by Ogre::Lod0Stripifier::~Lod0Stripifier().

◆ hardwareShadowVolWBuffer

HardwareVertexBufferSharedPtr Ogre::VertexData::hardwareShadowVolWBuffer

Additional shadow volume vertex buffer storage.

Remarks
This additional buffer is only used where we have prepared this VertexData for use in shadow volume construction, and where the current render system supports vertex programs. This buffer contains the 'w' vertex position component which will be used by that program to differentiate between extruded and non-extruded vertices. This 'w' component cannot be included in the original position buffer because DirectX does not allow 4-component positions in the fixed-function pipeline, and the original position buffer must still be usable for fixed-function rendering.
Note that we don't store any vertex declaration or vertex buffer binding here because this can be reused in the shadow algorithm.
