Detailed Description

Creates and manages the volume texture rendered by vtkOpenGLGPUVolumeRayCastMapper.

Wraps a vtkTextureObject for which it selects the appropriate format (depending on the input vtkDataArray type, number of components, etc.) and loads input data. The class maintains a set of members of interest to the parent mapper, such as:

This class supports streaming the volume data in separate blocks to make it fit in graphics memory (sometimes referred to as bricking). The data is split into a user-defined number of blocks in such a way that a single sub-block (brick) fits completely into GPU memory. A stride is passed to OpenGL so that it can access the underlying vtkDataArray adequately for each of the blocks to be streamed into GPU memory (back-to-front for correct composition).

Streaming the volume as separate texture bricks certainly imposes a performance trade-off but acts as a graphics memory expansion scheme for devices that would not be able to render higher resoulution volumes otherwise.

Warning
There are certain caveats when texture streaming is enabled, given the locality constraint that rendering a single block imposes.

Future work will extend the API to be able to compute an ideal number of partitions and extents based on the platform capabilities.

Warning
This is an internal class of vtkOpenGLGPUVolumeRayCastMapper. It assumes there is an active OpenGL context in methods involving GL calls (MakeCurrent() is expected to be called in the mapper beforehand).

Return 1 if this class is the same type of (or a subclass of) the named class.

Returns 0 otherwise. This method works in combination with vtkTypeMacro found in vtkSetGet.h.

Reimplemented from vtkObjectBase.

void vtkVolumeTexture::PrintSelf ( ostream &  os,

overridevirtual

Methods invoked by print to print information about the object including superclasses.

Typically not called by the user (use Print() instead) but used in the hierarchical print process to combine the output of several classes.

Reimplemented from vtkObject.

void vtkVolumeTexture::SetPartitions ( int const  i,
int const  j,
int const  k 
)

Set a number of blocks per axis.

const Size3& vtkVolumeTexture::GetPartitions ( )
bool vtkVolumeTexture::LoadVolume ( vtkRenderer ren,
vtkImageData data,
vtkDataArray scalars,
int const  isCell,
int const  interpolation 
)

Loads the data array into the texture in the case only a single block is is defined.

Does not load when the input data is divided in multiple blocks (in which case they will be loaded into GPU memory by GetNextBlock()). Requires an active OpenGL context.

void vtkVolumeTexture::UpdateVolume ( vtkVolumeProperty property)

It currently only calls SetInterpolation internally.

Requires an active OpenGL context.

void vtkVolumeTexture::SortBlocksBackToFront ( vtkRenderer ren,
vtkMatrix4x4 volumeMat 
)

If streaming the data array as separate blocks, sort them back to front.

This method does nothing if there is a single block.

VolumeBlock* vtkVolumeTexture::GetNextBlock ( )

Return the next volume block to be rendered and load its data.

If the current block is the last one, it will return nullptr.

VolumeBlock* vtkVolumeTexture::GetCurrentBlock ( )

Return the currently loaded block.

void vtkVolumeTexture::ReleaseGraphicsResources ( vtkWindow win)

Clean-up acquired graphics resources.

static void vtkVolumeTexture::GetScaleAndBias ( const int  scalarType,
float scalarRange,
float scale,
float bias 
)
static

Get the scale and bias values given a VTK scalar type and a finite range.

The scale and bias values computed using this method can be useful for custom shader code. For example, when looking up color values through the transfer function texture, the scalar value must be scaled and offset.
