texture color look up. Please help!

Hello everyone,
I am working on a 3D volume rendering application. My input volume data is a one byte MRI. I use 3D textures to display the volume. Now I want to color the voxels, along with alpha value, based on the input intensity value. So I tried using color look up table(glColorTable). Since the size of texture memory on my computer is low and data is huge I want to keep my data in the original 8 byte GL_LUMINANCE format however before actually displaying it on the frame buffer I want to color it with the look up table color.
I am using VC++ 6.0. I use a library called GLIW to pull up the glColorTable extension which is a part of ARB_imaging extension. However the color table is not doing anything :-(. I create the color table as follows
where lut is defined as GLubyte lut[256][4];

Could someone please help me?.



Did you enable it with glEnable( GL_COLOR_TABLE )?

Yes I did enable the color table using glEnable.

I am working in a much similiar project here… But I am not using any libraries. I think the most appropriate solution for this is to attach a 1D ARB texture with the 3D texture, and use a shader to color your volume. I used it and is working fine. But I am having a problem with blending, maybe you wouldn’t have it. I can send you a sample application if you want.

Thanks Tommy. I would definately like to take a look at your code.



I tried to send you the sample application but your mail server refused the attachment… It gave me the following error

Hi Tomy,
Did your application had any executable file? since google rejects incoming and outgoing messages with executables ( at least i am sure about outgoing).
