Hardcoding our First Video Thumbnail
Today's goal: Produce our first real thumbnail by replicating the one for today's stream!
- Thanks to Garjola for pointing out a bug that affected font rendering!
- I expanded the Fontconfig code slightly
- I've been rewriting the scripting language…
Producing a Real Thumbnail (Finally!)
We now have enough functionality to produce basic, usable thumbnails!
- Loading and saving PNG files
- Rendering image textures
- Rendering text
- Fragment shader support
Today we'll use these features to hardcode a replication of the thumbnail I created for today's stream!
Once we've got this working, I'll start using this code to produce the thumbnail for all future Flux Harmonic streams.
DONE Move existing test render code into its own function
DONE Create a new function to hardcode the rendering of stream thumbnails
TODO Fix image renderer to create the correct size of image with appropriate output
TODO Write a function to measure the pixel width of a string rendered with a specific font to use in screen centering
TODO Expand the font fragment shader to add a configurable drop shadow to text
The code for this stream can be found here:
