    16 streams of PAL (or even HD?) video in either RGB or YUV? That is tough, maybe even impossible with current cards. Is it 16 streams of live video or 16 video files being played back from disk?...

    The individual characters of a font are made up of one or more glyphs (these are more or less made from a number of straight or curved lines). The more languages a font supports, the more glyphs...

    I don't know how FTGL works, but you are probably out of memory (system, GPU or both). Arial has a lot of glyphs to convert. 700 times?

    I think I have the solution. I create the mipmaps an another thread from the original size, upload the whole thing to a single PBO, and in the gl rendering thread these are uploaded one at a time to...

    You did not ask if I needed text effects and I did not tell because my question was not about how to make them. I hope I can still make my decision not to follow your suggestion for the time being...

    Perhaps, but I hope it will not be necessary. If I create the mipmaps 'manually' using the CPU, I can use a separate core/thread that does it in the background without affecting opengl rendering. I...

    This is your opinion and I appreciate it. This is mine:

    They suggest to calculate the distance field texture from a 4096*4096 binary image. It is fine if you can create all your textures before the application runs and it is a wonderful technique to save...

    Computing mipmaps is only too slow because it happens in the rendering thread. When they are created, one or two frames take much longer to render which causes jumps in the animation. I don't think...

    Thanks for the response.
    Unfortunately text can change a lot, it can even be a continuously scrolling information line.
    The height of the characters is arbitrary, I added options from 96 to 384...

    glGenerateMipmap takes too long

    Hi,
    My application renders text character by character into separate textures.
    Since the text changes from time to time, I have to make this process as fast as I can, and
    remove as much of it as I...

    Thanks, good to know. It would be interesting to know how something like handling an error can vanish from one driver version to the next.

    I support 32-bit any more either, but my OS is Win7. Can you tell me which version of OpenGL yours is based on and where can I report something like this to Nvidia?
    Thanks.

    Are you kidding???

    There are a few things I have been praying for for quite some time. This was on the top of my list.

    Re: glReadPixels - is this possible?

    I added conversion to RGB on the CPU side, and it works beatifully. No more problems!

    Thank you.

    Re: glReadPixels - is this possible?

    Yes, you are right. I use PBOs. And now from what you wrote I understood why performance was hit so severely. Although I can certainly do RGBA to RGB conversion on the CPU, I still have one more...
