I'm working on transforming a set of point sprites to sphere using a geometry shader (i found that it could be a good idea).

RIght now, the vertex and fragment shader are working, they make the point sprites look like sphere but in 2D (the texture of the sphere is always facing you). When i'm trying to use the geometry shader below, nothing is rendered. HELP!!! lol!

Here the code :

// vertex shader

uniform float pointRadius; // point size in world space

uniform float pointScale; // scale to calculate size in pixels

uniform vec4 eyePos;

void main()

{

vec4 wpos = vec4(gl_Vertex.xyz, 1.0);

gl_Position = gl_ModelViewProjectionMatrix * wpos;

// calculate window-space point size

vec4 eyeSpacePos = gl_ModelViewMatrix * wpos;

float dist = length(eyeSpacePos.xyz);

gl_PointSize = pointRadius * (pointScale / dist);

gl_TexCoord[0] = gl_MultiTexCoord0; // sprite texcoord

gl_TexCoord[1] = eyeSpacePos;

gl_FrontColor = gl_Color;

}

// pixel shader for rendering points as shaded spheres

uniform float pointRadius;

uniform vec3 lightDir = vec3(0.577, 0.577, 0.577);

void main()

{

// calculate eye-space sphere normal from texture coordinates

vec3 N;

N.xy = gl_TexCoord[0].xy*vec2(2.0, -2.0) + vec2(-1.0, 1.0);

float r2 = dot(N.xy, N.xy);

if (r2 > 1.0) discard; // kill pixels outside circle

N.z = sqrt(1.0-r2);

// calculate depth

vec4 eyeSpacePos = vec4(gl_TexCoord[1].xyz + N*pointRadius, 1.0); // position of this pixel on sphere in eye space

vec4 clipSpacePos = gl_ProjectionMatrix * eyeSpacePos;

gl_FragDepth = (clipSpacePos.z / clipSpacePos.w)*0.5+0.5;

float diffuse = max(0.0, dot(N, lightDir));

gl_FragColor = diffuse*gl_Color;

}

// geometry shader

//#version 120

//#extension GL_EXT_geometry_shader4 : enable

const float radius = 0.5;

varying out vec2 coord;

void main()

{

for (int i = 0 ; i < gl_VerticesIn ; ++i )

{

gl_FrontColor = gl_FrontColorIn[i];

gl_Position = gl_PositionIn[i];

EmitVertex ( );

}

gl_FrontColor = gl_FrontColorIn[0];

coord = vec2( -1,-1 );

gl_Position = (gl_PositionIn[0] + gl_ProjectionMatrix * vec4(-radius,-radius,0,0) );

EmitVertex();

coord = vec2( -1,1 );

gl_Position = (gl_PositionIn[0] + gl_ProjectionMatrix * vec4(-radius,radius, 0,0) );

EmitVertex();

coord = vec2( 1,-1 );

gl_Position = (gl_PositionIn[0] + gl_ProjectionMatrix * vec4( radius,-radius, 0,0) );

EmitVertex();

coord = vec2( 1,1 );

gl_Position = (gl_PositionIn[0] + gl_ProjectionMatrix * vec4( radius,radius, 0,0) );

EmitVertex();

EndPrimitive();
