CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode Class Referenceabstract

Detailed Description

Provides a base for the definition of camera objects.

In 3D rendering, a camera is something that defines a view and a projection using a pair of matrices. This class provides the APIs and behaviours describing the view component of a camera. Subclasses like CYIOrthographicCameraSceneNode and CYIPerspectiveCameraSceneNode add additional APIs and behaviours to describe the projection component.

By virtue of being a scene node a camera can be positioned and oriented spatially relative to other nodes. The view matrix of a camera is the undoing of this positioning and orientation such that the rest of the scene becomes centered and oriented around the camera. The effect of this view matrix, when applied to the world transformation of another node in the scene, is to re-position the node in the location and orientation from which the camera object is seeing it.

Additionally, a camera can have an optional target scene node which it will face before having its transformations applied. The camera will continue to follow this target if either the camera node or its target move.

CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode::CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode ( )

Member Function Documentation

◆ CalculateProjectionMatrix()

virtual glm::mat4 CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode::CalculateProjectionMatrix ( ) const
protectedpure virtual

Subclasses must implement this function to return their calculated projection matrix. This function will be called if the result of IsProjectionDirty() is true on a given frame.

Implemented in CYIPerspectiveCameraSceneNode, and CYIOrthographicCameraSceneNode.

◆ CalculateViewMatrix()

glm::mat4 CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode::CalculateViewMatrix ( ) const

The view matrix represents the transformation required to center the world coordinate system on the position and orientation of the camera.

◆ CalculateViewportMatrix()

glm::mat4 CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode::CalculateViewportMatrix ( ) const

The viewport transform, when applied to a vertex that has undergone the view and projection transforms, will place that vertex into a viewport sized rectangle placed at the origin of the camera's parent node.

The view and projection matrices will result in a bottom-left oriented coordinate system, with +Y being "up," but the coordinate system of the user interface is top-left anchored, so this matrix contains a flip on Y.

◆ DirtyProjectionMatrix()

void CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode::DirtyProjectionMatrix ( )

Subclasses must call this function if their projection matrix needs to be recalculated

◆ GetCameraMatrix()

const glm::mat4& CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode::GetCameraMatrix ( ) const

The camera matrix represents the transformations required to display the point of view of the camera inside the region which is represented by the camera's viewport.

This matrix is a concatenation of the camera's view, then projection, and then viewport and viewport world matrices. The effect of applying this matrix on top of world-space vertex coordinates is to map those coordinates on to the viewport of this camera, which is described as a rectangle also defined in world-space.

◆ GetDumpTreeString()

virtual CYIString CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode::GetDumpTreeString ( ) const

Returns a string containing useful information about this node, displayed by DumpTree

Subclasses can implement this method to specify different or additional information. Appending to the default string is recommended.

See also

Reimplemented from CYISceneNode.

Reimplemented in CYIPerspectiveCameraSceneNode, and CYIOrthographicCameraSceneNode.

◆ GetFarPlane()

float CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode::GetFarPlane ( ) const

Get the far plane for the camera's view frustum in eye coordinates.

Eye space refers to a coordinate system in which the camera's position is the origin and the camera is facing +Z.

Objects that are farther than the far plane won't be visible.

◆ GetNearPlane()

float CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode::GetNearPlane ( ) const

Get the near plane for the camera's view frustum in eye coordinates.

Eye space refers to a coordinate system in which the camera's position is the origin and the camera is facing +Z.

Objects that are closer than the near plane will not be visible.

◆ GetProjectionMatrix()

const glm::mat4& CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode::GetProjectionMatrix ( ) const

The projection matrix is calculated based on the camera's projection properties. This differs based on the type of camera and details can be found in the concrete implementations of CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode.

◆ GetTarget()

CYISceneNode* CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode::GetTarget ( ) const

Returns the target for the camera, or nullptr if the camera has no target.

◆ GetUpVector()

const glm::vec3& CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode::GetUpVector ( ) const

Returns the up vector of the camera. The up vector, expressed in world coordinates, represents which direction "up" will be from the camera's point of view. Imagining the camera as an object in the scene, its up vector determines which direction the top of the camera will be facing.

◆ GetViewMatrix()

const glm::mat4& CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode::GetViewMatrix ( ) const

The view matrix is calculated from the camera's world transformation, and represents the transform required to center the world coordinate system on the location and orientation of the camera.

◆ GetViewport()

const YI_FLOAT_RECT_REL& CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode::GetViewport ( ) const

◆ GetViewportWorldMatrix()

const glm::mat4& CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode::GetViewportWorldMatrix ( ) const

This function is called during camera matrix calculation to place the generated viewport in the right world-space coordinates Will return the camera's parent's world transformation, or identity if the camera has no parent.

◆ Init()

virtual bool CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode::Init ( )

Initializes the scene node. Children of the scene node are also recursively initialized.

Subclasses must call CYISceneNode::Init.

A CYISceneManager must be set on the node using SetSceneManager before the node can be initialized.
The node must have an assigned CYISceneManager before this function can be called.
See also

Reimplemented from CYISceneNode.

◆ OnFrameTimeUpdated()

virtual bool CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode::OnFrameTimeUpdated ( std::chrono::microseconds  frameTime)

Implement this function to receive frame time update notifications. Return true if you want to keep receiving notifications. Return false if you want the listener to unregister.

Implements CYITime::UpdateListener.

◆ RemoveTarget()

void CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode::RemoveTarget ( )

Equivalent to calling SetTarget(nullptr)

Remove the target of the camera. The camera will stop tracking the target and return to the orientation defined by its own rotation properties.

This function does not release any memory, the target is not owned by the camera and it is up to the allocating class to delete the target.

◆ SetFarPlane()

void CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode::SetFarPlane ( float  farZ)

Set the far plane of the camera's view frustum in eye coordinates.

Eye space refers to a coordinate system in which the camera's position is the origin and the camera is facing +Z.

Objects that are farther than the far plane won't be visible.

◆ SetNearPlane()

void CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode::SetNearPlane ( float  nearZ)

Set the near plane for the camera's view frustum in eye coordinates.

Eye space refers to a coordinate system in which the camera's position is the origin and the camera is facing +Z.

Objects that are closer than the near plane will not be visible.

◆ SetTarget()

void CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode::SetTarget ( CYISceneNode pTargetNode)

Specify a node to use as the camera's point of interest. The transformations of the camera will be applied after the camera has been made to face the target. If no target is provided, the transformations of the camera will be applied from the default pose which is facing +Z.

Setting the camera's target and applying no additional transforms to the camera will result in the target being kept centered on the camera's view. An additional transform, like a 10 degree rotation on Y, will cause the target to move off of the center of the camera; the camera will be looking at a point 10 degrees beside the target from its position. Generally: the camera will orient toward the target and then apply its local orientation overtop.

By default this target will be null and the camera's rotation transforms will dictate where it faces. Adding a target will re-orient the camera to follow the target.

The camera does not take ownership of this memory, clean-up is the responsibility of the target node's parent.
Be sure to remove the target by calling SetTarget(nullptr) or RemoveTarget() if the target node is going to be deleted.

◆ SetUpVector()

void CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode::SetUpVector ( const glm::vec3 &  camUp)

Set the up vector for the camera. The up vector, expressed in world coordinates, represents which direction "up" will be from the camera's point of view. Imagining the camera as an object in the scene, its up vector determines which direction the top of the camera will be facing.

◆ SetViewport()

void CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode::SetViewport ( const YI_FLOAT_RECT_REL viewport)

Sets the viewport for this camera.

The objects affected by the camera will be rendered to fit inside of this viewport, which will be placed at the origin of the node (that is, the point (0,0,0)) which is the parent of this camera.

Generally, the viewport is specified to be (0, 0, view.width, view.height), where "view" is a CYISceneView which is the parent of this camera.

See also

◆ UpdateEnd()

virtual void CYIAbstractCameraSceneNode::UpdateEnd ( )

This hook provides subclasses a means to do operations subsequent to update. This hook is called after all children of the current node have been updated, and after all other update hooks have been called.

The dirty flag will be cleared prior to calling this function to allow new dirty state to be recorded from this function. If querying information about the dirty state of the node, use GetPreviousDirtyFlag().
Overrides must call the base class implementation.
