Using QGLTwoSidedMaterial vs QGLMaterial



  • So using QGLMaterial is pretty straight forward. This works fine for me:

    @
    QGeometryData plot1;
    QGLSceneNode *node1 = builder.newNode();

    QVector3D a1( 0,  0,   0 ); plot1.appendVertex(a1);
    ...
    QVector3D h1( 3,  1.5, 0 ); plot1.appendVertex(h1);
    builder.addQuadStrip(plot1);
    
    QGLMaterial *mat1 = new QGLMaterial;
    mat1->setColor(Qt::green);
    node1->setMaterial(mat1);
    node1->setEffect(QGL::LitMaterial);@
    

    However I have not seen any tutorials or examples of using two sided material so I tried this:

    @ QGLMaterial *mat1 = new QGLMaterial;
    mat1->setColor(Qt::green);

    QGLTwoSidedMaterial *ts = new QGLTwoSidedMaterial;
    ts->setFront(mat1);
    ts->setBack(mat1);
    
    node1->setMaterial(ts);
    node1->setEffect(QGL::LitMaterial);@
    

    but I get an error

    @error: no matching function for call to 'QGLSceneNode::setMaterial(QGLTwoSidedMaterial*&)'@

    How exactly do you utilize the two sided material? I dont see it used in the Qt3D examples or the API page.

    You guys rock!

    Long Live Qt!



  • Had the same problem. Solved it by binding the material to the painter in the node's draw(QGLPainter *painter) routine. Try this -

    ts->bind(painter);
    .... (other code) ...
    ts->release(painter, 0);

    QGLTwoSidedMaterial is derived from QGLAbstractMaterial, not from QGLMaterial, so setMaterial(ts) won't work.

    Hope this helps.
