Overview | |

This extension adds support for layered fog. The layers are | |

specified using a density profile of the fog with respect to the | |

elevation using "control" points to represent (elevation, density) | |

tuples. The density is assumed to vary linearly between successive | |

control point elevations. The maximum number of such points is | |

implementation dependent. | |

New Procedures and Functions | |

void FogLayersSGIX(sizei n, const float *points); | |

void GetFogLayersSGIX(float *points); | |

Issues | |

* Should the API present the abstraction of layers to the user ? Or | |

is this density profile specification good enough ? The problem | |

with abstracting layers is to guarantee consistency of densities | |

and elevations when each layer can be manipulated independently of | |

others! | |

3.10 Fog | |

In addition to uniform fog density, fog layers can be specified. | |

The implementation technique that is used to interpolate the | |

density between successive fog layers is implementation dependent. | |

The density profile of the fog with respect to elevation is | |

specified by calling FogLayersSGIX with <points> | |

pointing at an array of pairs of floating point values, and <n> set | |

to the number of value pairs in <points>. The first value of each | |

value pair in <points> specifies the elevation (should not be | |

negative), and the second value specifies the fog density at that | |

elevation. The fog density values are clamped to the range [0.0, | |

1.0]. The elevations in the specification of the density profile | |

must be monotonically increasing. At least one point must be | |

specified. The first point in the distribution must have an | |

elevation of zero. The maximum number of points is implementation | |

dependent and may be enquired using Get commands. The initial | |

state of the fog layer specification is defined by the single | |

point (0.0, 0.0). The fog density above the maximum user-specified | |

elevation is the density value in the last point in the profile. | |

Layered fog computations are defined only for positive elevations; | |

negative elevations result in switching back to uniform range fog model. | |

The elevation of any eye-space point A = (x, y, z, w) is defined | |

as the distance from the ground plane specified using glFog and | |

FOG_GROUND_PLANE_SGIX. Let the ground plane be defined by a | |

four-component plane equation in object-coordinates | |

G = (a, b, c, d). | |

where a, b, c and d are specified in order in the <params> | |

argument for Fogfv or Fogiv. | |

The ground plane is transformed into eye-coordinate space usi | |

the inverse transpose of the model-view matrix. Then the elevation | |

of point A (in eye-coordinate space) is the dot product A . G' | |

(G' - ground plane in eye-coordinate space): | |

elevation = a*x + b*y + c*z + d*w | |

Since the eye-point is defined to be at (0,0,0,1) in camera-space, | |

the elevation of the eye-point is the same as 'd' (the fourth | |

component of the ground plane). | |

The effective density 'S' from the eye-point is computed for every | |

fragment using the fog layer specification (XXX: how?). This | |

density is used in the fog equation to compute the fog blending | |

factor 'f' depending on the selected FOG_MODE. | |

Additions to Chapter 6 of the 1.2 Specification (State and State Requests) | |

The max allowed number of points in the fog layer specification | |

is queried by calling GetBooleanv, GetIntegerv, GetFloatv, and | |

GetDoublev with <pname> set to MAX_FOG_LAYERS_POINTS_SGIX. The | |

number of points in the current fog layers specification is queried | |

by calling GetBooleanv, GetIntegerv, GetFloatv, and GetDoublev with | |

<pname> set to FOG_LAYERS_POINTS_SGIX. All the points of the | |

current fog layer specification are queried by calling | |

GetFogLayersSGIX. Points are returned in the same format as they | |

are specified in the FogLayersSGIX function. | |

Errors | |

INVALID_VALUE is generated if FogLayersSGIX parameter <n> is | |

less than 1. | |

INVALID_VALUE is generated if any elevation is less than zero. | |

INVALID_OPERATION is generated if FogLayersSGIX is executed | |

between execution of Begin and the corresponding execution to | |

End. | |

INVALID_OPERATION is generated if GetFogLayersSGIX is executed | |

between execution of Begin and the corresponding execution to | |

End. | |
