The SbViewVolume class is a viewing volume in 3D space.

This class contains the necessary information for storing a view volume. It has methods for projection of primitives into the 3D volume from 2D points in the projection plane or vice versa, doing camera transforms, view volume transforms, etc.

- SbViewportRegion

An SbViewVolume 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. |

SbViewVolume::SbViewVolume | ( | void | ) |

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

- See also
- ortho(), perspective().

SbViewVolume::~SbViewVolume | ( | void | ) |

Destructor.

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

- See also
- getMatrix(), getCameraSpaceMatrix()

SbMatrix SbViewVolume::getMatrix | ( | void | ) | const |

Returns the combined affine and projection matrix.

- See also
- getMatrices(), getCameraSpaceMatrix()

SbMatrix SbViewVolume::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()

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

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

void SbViewVolume::projectPointToLine | ( | const SbVec2f & | pt, |

SbVec3f & | line0, |
||

SbVec3f & | 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.

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 *dst* be the same SbVec3f 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 SbViewVolume::getPlane | ( | const float | 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()

SbVec3f SbViewVolume::getSightPoint | ( | const float | distFromEye | ) | const |

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

- See also
- getPlane()

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].

SbRotation SbViewVolume::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.

float SbViewVolume::getWorldToScreenScale | ( | const SbVec3f & | worldCenter, |

float | 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.

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

SbViewVolume SbViewVolume::narrow | ( | float | left, |

float | bottom, |
||

float | right, |
||

float | 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.:

..will give a view volume with corner points <25, 75> and <50, 100>.

- See also
- scale(), scaleWidth(), scaleHeight()

SbViewVolume SbViewVolume::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 SbViewVolume::ortho | ( | float | left, |

float | right, |
||

float | bottom, |
||

float | top, |
||

float | nearval, |
||

float | 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 SbViewVolume::perspective | ( | float | fovy, |

float | aspect, |
||

float | nearval, |
||

float | farval |
||

) |

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

void SbViewVolume::frustum | ( | float | left, |

float | right, |
||

float | bottom, |
||

float | top, |
||

float | nearval, |
||

float | 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.

float | farval |
||
