Magnum::GL::CompressedBufferImage class

Compressed buffer image.

Stores multi-dimensional compressed image data in GPU memory together with layout and compressed block description. See CompressedImage for the client memory counterpart.

This class can act as a drop-in replacement for CompressedImage, CompressedImageView and Trade::ImageData APIs. See also BufferImage for equivalent functionality targeted on non-compressed image formats.

Basic usage

The image creates a Buffer instance and fills it with passed data, storing corresponding image size and compression format properties. Because this is a GL-centric class, it's common to specify the format using GL::CompressedPixelFormat:

GL::CompressedBufferImage2D image{GL::CompressedPixelFormat::RGBS3tcDxt1,
    {512, 256}, data, GL::BufferUsage::StaticDraw};

It's also possible to pass the generic Magnum::CompressedPixelFormat to it, however the format() query will always return the GL-specific value.

Besides creating and owning the buffer, you can also pass existing buffer to it, for example to use buffer storage and other advanced functionality. The image will take an ownership of the buffer, you can use Buffer::wrap() to make a non-owning copy.

GL::Buffer buffer;
GL::CompressedBufferImage2D image{GL::CompressedPixelFormat::RGBS3tcDxt1,
    {512, 256}, std::move(buffer), 65536};

It's also possible to create just an image placeholder, storing only the image properties without data or size. That is useful for example to specify desired format of image queries in graphics APIs:

GL::Texture2D texture;
GL::CompressedBufferImage2D image = texture.compressedImage(0, {},
    GL::BufferUsage::StaticRead);

Similarly to CompressedImageView, this class supports extra storage parameters. See Basic usage for more information.

Parameters

usage Image buffer usage

Converts Magnum::CompressedPixelFormat to a GL-specific value using compressedPixelFormat() and and then calls CompressedBufferImage(CompressedPixelStorage, CompressedPixelFormat, const VectorTypeFor<dimensions, Int>&, Containers::ArrayView<const void>, BufferUsage).

template<UnsignedInt dimensions>
Magnum::GL::CompressedBufferImage<dimensions>::CompressedBufferImage(CompressedPixelStorage storage)

Construct an image placeholder.

Parameters
storage Storage of compressed pixel data

Format is undefined, size is zero and buffer is empty, call setData() to fill the image with data.

template<UnsignedInt dimensions>

Construct an image placeholder.

Equivalent to calling CompressedBufferImage(CompressedPixelStorage) with default-constructed CompressedPixelStorage.

template<UnsignedInt dimensions>
Magnum::GL::CompressedBufferImage<dimensions>::CompressedBufferImage(NoCreateT) explicit noexcept

Construct without creating the underlying OpenGL object.

The constructed instance is equivalent to moved-from state. Useful in cases where you will overwrite the instance later anyway. Move another object over it to make it useful.

This function can be safely used for constructing (and later destructing) objects even without any OpenGL context being active. However note that this is a low-level and a potentially dangerous API, see the documentation of NoCreate for alternatives.
