Synopsis

Functions

Detailed Description

To make the content of textures available for read and write operations in a shader, they need to exposed as QShaderImage . Textures can be composed of several mip levels, layers and faces. Additionally declaring a QShaderImage allows specifying which level, layer or face of the texture content we want to access.

QShaderImage has to be assigned as a QParameter ‘s value and reference a valid QAbstractTexture to work properly.

If the referenced texture is a one-dimensional array, two-dimensional array, three-dimensional, cube map, cube map array, or two-dimensional multisample array texture, it is possible to bind either the entire texture level or a single layer or face of the texture level. This can be controlled with the layered property.

Support for QShaderImage is only supported with OpenGL 4 and partially with OpenGL ES 3.1 and 3.2.

OpenGL 4 supports the following image types:

Expected use would look like:

Qt3DRender::QTexture2D *tex2D = new Qt3DRender::QTexture2D();
...
Qt3DRender::QMaterial *material = new Qt3DRender::QMaterial();
...
Qt3DRender::QParameter *imageParameter = new Qt3DRender::QParameter();
Qt3DRender::QShaderImage *shaderImage = new Qt3DRender::QShaderImage();

shaderImage->setTexture(tex2D);

imageParameter->setName("imageUniformName");
imageParameter->setValue(QVariant::fromValue(shaderImage));

material->addParameter(imageParamenter);
