Thanks, and yeah, it's part of a bigger site which I didn't want to mention here, it's not an advertising board ;). But that site will have a tutorial on how to use it :). Also the first screen you get will feature a short demo video and tutorial.

al right, has to do with the sampling mode, how do I find out which sampling modes a card supports?

One last question, on intel graphics chips i receive following error:

[ Sun Sep 27 23:38:17 CEST 2009 ] - ERROR: No support for WGL_ARB_multisample

Any idea which parameter causes this?

Got it now, the loader only loads the name of the texture and I have to make sure the texture is available in the texturemanager. Sounds simple enough, now I only have to write the pixelshader for bumpmapping.

Thanks, that's great! Very helpful :)

And no, I don't call it every frame, just copied the relevant parts of the code which made it look that way ;)

This thread is a split from here:,1462.0.html

- ATM I called getpixels in the main thead, aka:

Code: [Select]
public void init()

        new Thread(this).start();

public void paint(Graphics g)

       // render the world onto the buffer:



public void run()
     while (loop)
     if (mouseoverleftturn && mousedown)
         else if (mouseoverrightturn && mousedown)
            catch(Exception e)
                //Don't care...

I assume I should move the getPixels() call out of the paint method and into another thread? If I do that, would it be synchronized with the update method of the buffer?

- It was more a general question, atm I load the 3DS file directly from the server, however the 3DS contains references to textures which don't seem to work. But the textures have to be bumpmapped anyway, so I guess I can't just use the loadobject method and expect it to work :). Will have to put some work in that one :D

Some screenshots for people who don't want to load the entire applet to view what it is about :)

Hey all,

First of all, thanks for this great framework, I started the project in Java3D but quickly became frustrated. This framework made it all a lot easier.
Also thanks Paul for making all the examples, they helped a lot :).

Now, the project I made can be found on (temp link, you need a decent resolution to view the applet). It's for a manufacturer of modular stands (for expo's and stuff). You can build and texture stands, save them and order the materials right from the java applet.

It works alright but I have a few questions left:

- for the "request quote" functionality I would like to include a render of the world as an image, however when I call getPixels or getOutputBuffer on the FrameBuffer the entire program freezes. I use the opengl mode with enableGLCanvasRenderer.
- The 3DS file are stored in a mysql database blob field and sent on request to the builder. Can anyone give me any tips on how to load the 3DS file with textures in this way? I thought about making a zip of the 3DS file + textures, download it to the local PC, unzip and load from there. Sounds like a good plan?
