Detailed Description

The SbDPViewVolume class is a double precision viewing volume in 3D space.

This class contains the necessary information for storing a view volume. It has methods for projection of primitives from or into the 3D volume, doing camera transforms, view volume transforms etc.

Be aware that this class is an extension for Coin, and it is not available in the original SGI Open Inventor v2.1 API.

Member Enumeration Documentation

enum SbDPViewVolume::ProjectionType

An SbDPViewVolume instance can represent either an orthogonal projection volume or a perspective projection volume.

See also:

ortho(), perspective(), getProjectionType().

Enumerator

ORTHOGRAPHIC
Orthographic projection.
PERSPECTIVE
Perspective projection.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

SbDPViewVolume::SbDPViewVolume (void)

Constructor. Note that the SbDPViewVolume instance will be uninitialized until you explicitly call ortho() or perspective().

See also:

ortho(), perspective().

SbDPViewVolume::~SbDPViewVolume (void)

Destructor.

Member Function Documentation

void SbDPViewVolume::getMatrices (SbDPMatrix & affine, SbDPMatrix & proj) const

Returns the view volume's affine matrix and projection matrix.

See also:

getMatrix(), getCameraSpaceMatrix()

SbDPMatrix SbDPViewVolume::getMatrix (void) const

Returns the combined affine and projection matrix.

See also:

getMatrices(), getCameraSpaceMatrix()

SbDPMatrix SbDPViewVolume::getCameraSpaceMatrix (void) const

Returns a matrix which will translate the view volume camera back to origo, and rotate the camera so it'll point along the negative z axis.

Note that the matrix will not include the rotation necessary to make the camera up vector point along the positive y axis (i.e. camera roll is not accounted for).

See also:

getMatrices(), getMatrix()

void SbDPViewVolume::projectPointToLine (const SbVec2d & pt, SbDPLine & line) const

Project the given 2D point from the projection plane into a 3D line.

pt coordinates should be normalized to be within [0, 1].

void SbDPViewVolume::projectPointToLine (const SbVec2d & pt, SbVec3d & line0, SbVec3d & line1) const

Project the given 2D point from the projection plane into two points defining a 3D line. The first point, line0, will be the corresponding point for the projection on the near plane, while line1 will be the line endpoint, lying in the far plane.

void SbDPViewVolume::projectToScreen (const SbVec3d & src, SbVec3d & dst) const

Project the src point to a normalized set of screen coordinates in the projection plane and place the result in dst.

It is safe to let src and be the same SbVec3d instance.

The z-coordinate of dst is monotonically increasing for points closer to the far plane. Note however that this is not a linear relationship, the dst z-coordinate is calculated as follows:

Orthogonal view: DSTz = (-2 * SRCz - far - near) / (far - near), Perspective view: DSTz = (-SRCz * (far - near) - 2*far*near) / (far - near)

The returned coordinates (dst) are normalized to be in range [0, 1].

SbPlane SbDPViewVolume::getPlane (const double distFromEye) const

Returns an SbPlane instance which has a normal vector in the opposite direction of which the camera is pointing. This means the plane will be parallel to the near and far clipping planes.

See also:

getSightPoint()

SbVec3d SbDPViewVolume::getSightPoint (const double distFromEye) const

Returns the point on the center line-of-sight from the camera position with the given distance.

See also:

getPlane()

SbVec3d SbDPViewVolume::getPlanePoint (const double distFromEye, const SbVec2d & normPoint) const

Return the 3D point which projects to normPoint and lies on the plane perpendicular to the camera direction and distFromEye distance away from the camera position.

normPoint should be given in normalized coordinates, where the visible render canvas is covered by the range [0.0, 1.0].

SbDPRotation SbDPViewVolume::getAlignRotation (SbBool rightangleonly = FALSE) const

Returns a rotation that aligns an object so that its positive x-axis is to the right and its positive y-axis is up in the view volume.

If rightangleonly is TRUE, it will create a rotation that aligns the x and y-axis with the closest orthogonal axes to right and up.

double SbDPViewVolume::getWorldToScreenScale (const SbVec3d & worldCenter, double normRadius) const

Given a sphere with center in worldCenter and an initial radius of 1.0, return the scale factor needed to make this sphere have a normRadius radius when projected onto the near clipping plane.

SbVec2d SbDPViewVolume::projectBox (const SbBox3f & box) const

Projects the given box onto the projection plane and returns the normalized screen space it occupies.

SbDPViewVolume SbDPViewVolume::narrow (double left, double bottom, double right, double top) const

Returns a narrowed version of the view volume which is within the given [0, 1] normalized coordinates. The coordinates are taken to be corner points of a normalized 'view window' on the near clipping plane. I.e.:

SbDPViewVolume view;
view.ortho(0, 100, 0, 100, 0.1, 1000);
view = view.narrow(0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1.0);

scale(), scaleWidth(), scaleHeight()

SbDPViewVolume SbDPViewVolume::narrow (const SbBox3f & box) const

Returns a narrowed version of the view volume which is within the given [0, 1] normalized coordinates. The box x and y coordinates are taken to be corner points of a normalized 'view window' on the near clipping plane. The box z coordinates are used to adjust the near and far clipping planes, and should be relative to the current clipping planes. A value of 1.0 is at the current near plane. A value of 0.0 is at the current far plane.

void SbDPViewVolume::ortho (double left, double right, double bottom, double top, double nearval, double farval)

Set up the view volume as a rectangular box for orthographic parallel projections. The line of sight will be along the negative z axis, through the center of the plane defined by the point <(right+left)/2, (top+bottom)/2, 0>.

perspective().

void SbDPViewVolume::perspective (double fovy, double aspect, double nearval, double farval)

Set up the view volume for perspective projections. The line of sight will be through origo along the negative z axis.

ortho().

void SbDPViewVolume::frustum (double left, double right, double bottom, double top, double nearval, double farval)

Set up the frustum for perspective projection. This is an alternative to perspective() that lets you specify any kind of view volumes (e.g. off center volumes). It has the same arguments and functionality as the corresponding OpenGL glFrustum() function.
