View Full Version : Thik lines

Is there a way to avoid this ugly effect of thick lines?
The red arrow points to an arc drawn with: glLineWidth(8);
I have also tryed activating line antialiasing but nothing changes.
Thanks in advance,

LineWidth prolly aint gonna give the best results but it certainly shouldnt be that bad, it looks like youre missing parts try GL_LINE_LOOP or GL_LINE_STRIP (i think thats the syntax) instead of GL_LINES
if that doesnt work for better lines u need to do the AA yourself eg in a fragment program or use textured quads for the lines

We don't wanted to activate antialiasing, because it would reduce overall performances.
BTW we are already using GL_LINE_STRIP.
Looks like the only solution is activating antialiasing.

What's wrong with the solution I provided:
unsigned int subdiv = 256;
float radius = 0.5f;
for (unsigned int i=0;i<subdiv;++i)
This works like a charm without a multisample buffer.
