I have a problem printing from GLSceneMemoryViewer (I am using RenderToBitMap).
The printed image gives me a mirrored image of the scene. Does anyone know this problem and have a solution for it?
Attached the printed image (test.jpg) and a screenshot form my application.





This is the code I use:

var
p: TPicture;
bmp: TBitMap;
scale : Single;
begin
p:=TPicture.Create;
bmp:=TBitMap.Create;
try
scale:=1.5;
bmp.PixelFormat:=pf24bit;
bmp.Width:=Round(GLMemoryViewer1.Width*scale);
bmp.Height:=Round(GLMemoryViewer1.Height*scale);
GLMemoryViewer1.Buffer.RenderToBitmap(bmp, Round(96*scale));
p.Bitmap.Width:=bmp.Width;
p.Bitmap.Height:=bmp.Height;
p.Bitmap.PixelFormat:=bmp.PixelFormat;
p.Bitmap.Canvas.Draw(0, 0, bmp);
frmReport.Pictures[0]:=p;
p.SaveToFile('test.jpg');
finally
bmp.Free;
end;
end;

A MemViewer still relies on a GLCamera to set up its viewing parameters. Have you checked if you have the right GLCamera assigned to the MemViewer?

I used the same GLcamera as the GLViewer uses for the MemViewer. So they should be the same.

hm... did you try to test the same outputting routine on a GLScene sample that uses a MemViewer?

Not yet. I will give it a try this evening. I will post the results by tomorrow. Thanks for the suggestion.

I created a very simple GLScene sample project using a GLViewer and a GLMemViewer. Added a dummycube, with a teapot as childobject, a GLCamera and a GLLightsource. Furthermore I added the printing stuff (same as above) with a TImage in a second form. It produces the same results. See the attached files with a screenshot of the app. and a rendered image which was saved to disk.

I tried running a modified sample on both Delphi and CT (attached). The Delphi version was fine making a test output while the CT version gives up-side-down image. So, it looks like it's related to the CT conversion of GLScene. I'm still new to CT and sorry that I can't help further.

Thanks Ideabrush for your help. Is anyone from CT able to help out further? Considering the test Ideabrush made?
