Detailed Description

The SoComplexity class is a node type which is used to set the trade-off between quality and performance.

By inserting SoComplexity nodes in the scene graph, you can control the accuracy by which complex shapes are rendered and the quality of the texture mapping used for geometry in the scene.

Shape nodes like SoCone, SoSphere, SoCylinder and others, will render with fewer polygons and thereby improve performance, if the complexity value of the traversal state is set to a lower value.

By using the SoComplexity::type field, you may also choose to render the scene graph (or parts of it) just as wireframe bounding boxes. This will improve rendering performance a lot, and can sometimes be used in particular situations where responsiveness is more important than appearance.

Texture mapping can be done in an expensive but attractive looking manner, or in a quick way which doesn't look as appealing by modifying the value of the SoComplexity::textureQuality field. By setting the SoComplexity::textureQuality field to a value of 0.0, you can also turn texture mapping completely off.

Member Enumeration Documentation

◆ Type

The available values for the SoComplexity::type field.

Enumerator
OBJECT_SPACE 

Use the SoComplexity::value in calculations based on the geometry's size in world space 3D.

SCREEN_SPACE 

Use the SoComplexity::value in calculations based on the geometry's size when projected onto the rendering area. This is often a good way to make sure that objects are rendered with as low complexity as possible while still retaining their appearance for the user.

BOUNDING_BOX 

Render further geometry in the scene graph as bounding boxes only for super fast rendering.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ SoComplexity()

SoComplexity::SoComplexity ( void  )

Constructor.

◆ ~SoComplexity()

SoComplexity::~SoComplexity ( )
protectedvirtual

Destructor.

Member Function Documentation

◆ getTypeId()

SoType SoComplexity::getTypeId ( void  ) const
virtual

Returns the type identification of an object derived from a class inheriting SoBase. This is used for runtime type checking and "downward" casting.

Usage example:

void foo(SoNode * node)
{
if (node->getTypeId() == SoFile::getClassTypeId()) {
SoFile * filenode = (SoFile *)node; // safe downward cast, knows the type
}
}

For application programmers wanting to extend the library with new nodes, engines, nodekits, draggers or others: this method needs to be overridden in all subclasses. This is typically done as part of setting up the full type system for extension classes, which is usually accomplished by using the predefined macros available through for instance Inventor/nodes/SoSubNode.h (SO_NODE_INIT_CLASS and SO_NODE_CONSTRUCTOR for node classes), Inventor/engines/SoSubEngine.h (for engine classes) and so on.

For more information on writing Coin extensions, see the class documentation of the top level superclasses for the various class groups.

Implements SoBase.

◆ getFieldData()

const SoFieldData * SoComplexity::getFieldData ( void  ) const
protectedvirtual

Returns a pointer to the class-wide field data storage object for this instance. If no fields are present, returns NULL.

Reimplemented from SoFieldContainer.

◆ doAction()

void SoComplexity::doAction ( SoAction action)
virtual

This function performs the typical operation of a node for any action.

Reimplemented from SoNode.

◆ callback()

void SoComplexity::callback ( SoCallbackAction action)
virtual

Action method for SoCallbackAction.

Simply updates the state according to how the node behaves for the render action, so the application programmer can use the SoCallbackAction for extracting information about the scene graph.

Reimplemented from SoNode.

◆ getBoundingBox()

void SoComplexity::getBoundingBox ( SoGetBoundingBoxAction action)
virtual

Action method for the SoGetBoundingBoxAction.

Calculates bounding box and center coordinates for node and modifies the values of the action to encompass the bounding box for this node and to shift the center point for the scene more towards the one for this node.

Nodes influencing how geometry nodes calculate their bounding box also override this method to change the relevant state variables.

Reimplemented from SoNode.

◆ GLRender()

void SoComplexity::GLRender ( SoGLRenderAction action)
virtual

Action method for the SoGLRenderAction.

This is called during rendering traversals. Nodes influencing the rendering state in any way or want to throw geometry primitives at OpenGL override this method.

Reimplemented from SoNode.

◆ pick()

void SoComplexity::pick ( SoPickAction action)
virtual

Action method for SoPickAction.

Does common processing for SoPickAction action instances.

Reimplemented from SoNode.

◆ getPrimitiveCount()

void SoComplexity::getPrimitiveCount ( SoGetPrimitiveCountAction action)
virtual

Action method for the SoGetPrimitiveCountAction.

Calculates the number of triangle, line segment and point primitives for the node and adds these to the counters of the action.

Nodes influencing how geometry nodes calculate their primitive count also override this method to change the relevant state variables.

Reimplemented from SoNode.

Member Data Documentation

◆ type

SoSFEnum SoComplexity::type

Set rendering type. Default value is SoComplexity::OBJECT_SPACE.

◆ value

SoSFFloat SoComplexity::value

Complexity value, valid settings range from 0.0 (worst appearance, best performance) to 1.0 (optimal appearance, lowest rendering speed). Default value for the field is 0.5.

Note that without any SoComplexity nodes in the scene graph, geometry will render as if there was a SoComplexity node present with SoComplexity::value set to 1.0.

◆ textureQuality

SoSFFloat SoComplexity::textureQuality

Sets the quality value for texture mapping. Valid range is from 0.0 (texture mapping off, rendering will be much faster for most platforms) to 1.0 (best quality, rendering might be slow).

The same value for this field on different platforms can yield varying results, depending on the quality of the underlying rendering hardware.

Note that this field influences the behavior of the SoTexture2 node, not the shape nodes. There is an important consequence of this that the application programmer need to know about: you need to insert your SoComplexity node(s) before the SoTexture2 node(s) in the scene graph for them to have any influence on the textured shapes.
