class mrpt::opengl::CCamera

A camera: if added to a scene, the viewpoint defined by this camera will be used instead of the camera parameters set in COpenGLViewport::m_camera.

A camera can be defined to provide a projective or orthogonal view of the world by setting the member CCamera::m_projectiveModel.

Alternatively, a camera pose and orientation can be given as a CPose3D object if set6DOFMode() is set to true, then the pose can be changed with CRenderizable::setPose(). Pose axis convention is +X pointing forwards, +Z up.

virtual shader_list_t requiredShaders() const

Returns the ID of the OpenGL shader program required to render this class.

See also:


void setProjectiveModel(bool v = true)

Enable/Disable projective mode (vs.


void setOrthogonal(bool v = true)

Enable/Disable orthogonal mode (vs.


void set6DOFMode(bool v)

Set 6DOFMode, if enabled camera is set according to its pose (default=false).

Conventionally, eye is set looking towards the positive direction of Z axis. Up is set as the Y axis. In this mode azimuth/elevation are ignored.

void setProjectiveFOVdeg(float ang)

Vertical field-of-View in degs, only when projectiveModel=true (default=30 deg).

float getProjectiveFOVdeg() const

Field-of-View in degs, only when projectiveModel=true (default=30 deg).

virtual void render(const RenderContext& rc) const

Render does nothing here.

virtual void renderUpdateBuffers() const

Render does nothing here.

virtual mrpt::math::TBoundingBox getBoundingBox() const

In this class, returns a fixed box (max,max,max), (-max,-max,-max).

virtual void freeOpenGLResources()

Free opengl buffers.
