Quick Start

screenshot

This was originally created for an assignment in our "Advanced Graphics" module. To start:

sh build.sh && ./graph

Controls

  • arrow keys :: rotate the graph/axis around the x/y axis
  • wasd :: offset the graph/axis along the x/y axis
  • q + e :: offset the graph/axis along the z-axis
  • 0 :: display no graphs (axis only)
  • 1 :: display both graphs
  • 2 :: display 2D graph only (repositions accordingly)
  • 3 :: display 3D graph only
  • r :: reset everything
  • - :: reduce sample count
  • =+ :: increase sample count

Notes

  • Build & tested on OSX, untested on Windows/Linux/etc
  • Build in c
  • OpenGL 3.2 core profile
  • Manual perspective, shader based rotations
  • Uses glfw for input/window management
  • All the y values are scaled (x50), since they otherwise oscillate between -1 & 1
    • Could have divided the z/x values also
  • Compiled (OSX) using: gcc graph.c -I/usr/local/include -I/opt/X11/include -L/usr/local/lib -I/opt/X11/lib -w -framework OpenGL -framework Cocoa -framework IOKit -lglfw -o graph

Features

  • No noticeable lag up to 590 samples (after which it ran out of memory, 34,8690 polygons)
    • CPU usage also appears low at all times
  • ‘Camera’ movement by moving & rotating the entire graph/axis
    • Rotations/offsets done in-shader
  • Both graphs drawn in 3D space, both can be rotated/moved in the same ways, both can be displayed together or separately
