"spot_cutoff" values between 90 and 180 are triggering error messages. I’d
like to morph from 360 positional lighting to spotlights, but I can’t.
using jitter 1.5.2 I get:
ob3d_draw_end popmatrix: GL Error: Invalid value.
180 or 90 (and below) is fine with Jitter, but everything in between is
Is this not accepted by OpenGL standards or is it a possible Jitter bug?
Sounds like it might be a good idea to mention again that the standard
OpenGL stuff is available online for you at http://www.opengl.org/ .
a great resource.
From the Red Book (p.~189):
"To specify the angle between the axis of the cone an a ray along the
edge of the cone, use the GL_SPOT_CUTOFF parameter….By default, the
spotlight feature is disabled because the GL_SPOT_CUTOFF parameter is
180.0. This value means that light is emitted in all directions (the
angle at the cone’s apex is 360 degrees,so it isn’t a cone at all). The
value for GL_SPOT_CUTOFF is restricted to the range [0.0 90.0] (unless
it has the special value 180.)."
Ah, thanks. Sorry for the wasted time and bandwidth. I must have overlooked
