Trying to do texture mapping in GLSL 150

Hi all I’m trying to do texture mapping GLSL 150.

The problem is the texture shows but has this weird flicker I can show a video here

<object width=“425” height=“350”> <param name=“movie” value=“”></param> <param name=“wmode” value=“transparent”></param> <embed src=“” type=“application/x-shockwave-flash” wmode=“transparent” width=“425” height=“350”> </embed></object>

and I have everything setup best I can

have my texcords in my vertex array sent up to opengl

I have my fragment color set to the texture values and texel values I have my vertex sending the textures cords to texture cordinates to be used in the fragment shader I have my ins and outs setup and I still don’t know what I’m missing that could be causing that flicker.

here is my code

Fragment Shader

#version 150
//orginally 130
//orginally 110

//Texture Uniform Sampler 2D Container
uniform sampler2D texture;

in vec2 texture_coord;

varying vec3 texture_coordinate;

//Main Entry Point
void main(void){


   //To Tell GLSL The Texture and Texture Coords  texture cords is the position
   gl_FragColor = texture(texture, texture_coord);
   //vec4(1.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0); 
   //gl_FragColor = vec4(texture_coordinate.xy, 0.0, 1.0);

vertex shader

#version 150

//Always use a attribute vec4 for position variable
in vec4 position;

//Matrix 3 x 3 row
//mat4 projection;

//Texture Cordinates 2 element vector of varying type

//attribute vec2 texture_coordinate;
out vec2 texture_coordinate; 

out vec2 texture_coord;
//Translations 3 element vector uniform
uniform vec3 translations;

      //Projection Matrix
        //mat4 projection = mat4(
       // vec4(1.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0),
       // vec4(0.0, 1.0, 0.0, 0.0),
       // vec4(0.0, 0.0, 1.0, 0.0), 
       // vec4(0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0)); 

//Main Entry Point
void main()

      //Passing The Texture Coordinate of Texture Unit 0 To The Fragment Shader
      texture_coord = (texture_coordinate);


  // To Put The Vertex in View? //ORGINALLY 8.0
 gl_Position = vec4( +, 1.0);


Oh and here is my vertex array with texture cordinates

                    // X    //y   //z   //u   //v
GLfloat vVerts[] = {  0.5f, 0.5f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f , 
                      0.0f, 0.5f, 0.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f, 
                      0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 
                      0.5f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f};
                                       //tex x and y 

thank you for your help

Couple things come to mind:
[ol][]In the vtx shader, your setting the texcoord output with another output. Not what you want[]The order of the tex coord data in your data array doesn’t appear to be in the right order for the positions[*]All else fails, suspect a problem with how you’re setting an enabling the texcoord attribute in the C/C++ code.[/ol]

hmm Would having the first parameter of glVertexAttribPointer like so be a problem


glVertexAttribPointer(0, 3,GL_FLOAT,GL_FALSE, 5 * sizeof(float),0);

I’ve looked at everything else in my code and changed my tex coords

                    // X    //y   //z   //u   //v
GLfloat vVerts[] = {  0.5f, 0.5f, 0.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f , 
                      0.0f, 0.5f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f, 
                      0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 
                      0.5f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f};
                                       //tex x and y 

As Dark Photon said, you’re setting an output from another output value, so maybe:

out vec2 texture_coordinate;

should be:

in vec2 texture_coordinate;

As to whether using 0 as the first parameter of glVertexAttribPointer would be a problem - not if you’re setting the location of “texture_coordinate” to 0 with glBindAttribLocation before linking the program, then using 0 would be okay, otherwise you should query the proper location with glGetAttribLocation.

Maybe “position” should be a vec3 instead of a vec4 in your vertex shader too.

Could be. 0 is a special case as it’s always positions (I think). For the rest, you need to ensure you bind the correct vertex attribute to the right name. One fairly trouble-free way to do this is with

  glBindAttribLocation( pgm, 0, "My_Vertex"         );
  glBindAttribLocation( pgm, 8, "My_TexCoord0"      );

You may have several issues, including the thing about assigning the texcoord in your shader.
