public class TextureCubeMap
extends Texture

TextureCubeMap is a subclass of Texture class. It defines a special kind of texture mapping which is composed of a set of six 2D images representating the six faces of a cube. The texture coordinate (s,t,r) is used as a 3D direction vector emanating from the center of a cube to select a particular face of the cube based on the largest magnitude coordinate (the major axis). A new 2D texture coordinate (s,t) is then determined by dividing the other two coordinates (the minor axes) by the major axis value. The new coordinate is then used for texel lookup from the selected texture image of this cube map. The TextureCubeMap image is defined by specifying the images for each face of the cube. The cube map texture can be thought of as centered at the orgin of and aligned to an XYZ coordinate system. The names of the cube faces are:

Note that as of Java 3D 1.5, the texture width and height are no longer required to be an exact power of two. However, not all graphics devices supports non-power-of-two textures. If non-power-of-two texture mapping is unsupported on a particular Canvas3D, textures with a width or height that are not an exact power of two are ignored for that canvas.

Java 3D 1.3

Constructor Detail

TextureCubeMap

public TextureCubeMap()
Constructs a texture object using default values. Note that the default constructor creates a texture object with a width of 0 and is, therefore, not useful.


TextureCubeMap

public TextureCubeMap(int mipmapMode,
                      int format,
                      int width)
Constructs an empty TextureCubeMap object with specified mipmapMode format, and width. Image at base level must be set by the application using 'setImage' method. If mipmapMode is set to MULTI_LEVEL_MIPMAP, images for base level through maximum level must be set. Note that cube map is square in dimensions, hence specifying width is sufficient. Note also that a texture with a non-power-of-two width will only be rendered on a graphics device that supports non-power-of-two textures.

Parameters:
mipmapMode - type of mipmap for this Texture: One of BASE_LEVEL, MULTI_LEVEL_MIPMAP.
format - data format of Textures saved in this object. One of INTENSITY, LUMINANCE, ALPHA, LUMINANCE_ALPHA, RGB, RGBA.
width - width (and height) of image at level 0.
Throws:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException - if width is not greater than 0 OR invalid format/mipmapMode is specified.

TextureCubeMap

public TextureCubeMap(int mipmapMode,
                      int format,
                      int width,
                      int boundaryWidth)
Constructs an empty TextureCubeMap object with specified mipmapMode format, width, and boundary width. Image at base level must be set by the application using 'setImage' method. If mipmapMode is set to MULTI_LEVEL_MIPMAP, images for base level through maximum level must be set. Note that cube map is square in dimensions, hence specifying width is sufficient. Note also that a texture with a non-power-of-two width will only be rendered on a graphics device that supports non-power-of-two textures.

Parameters:
mipmapMode - type of mipmap for this Texture: One of BASE_LEVEL, MULTI_LEVEL_MIPMAP.
format - data format of Textures saved in this object. One of INTENSITY, LUMINANCE, ALPHA, LUMINANCE_ALPHA, RGB, RGBA.
width - width (and height) of image at level 0. This does not include the width of the boundary.
boundaryWidth - width of the boundary, which must be 0 or 1.
Throws:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException - if width is not greater than 0 OR invalid format/mipmapMode is specified.
