GLDEPTHRANGEINDEXED(3G) OpenGL Manual GLDEPTHRANGEINDEXED(3G)
glDepthRangeIndexed - specify mapping of depth values from normalized device coordinates
to window coordinates for a specified viewport
void glDepthRangeIndexed(GLuint index, GLdouble nearVal, GLdouble farVal);
Specifies the index of the viewport whose depth range to update.
Specifies the mapping of the near clipping plane to window coordinates. The initial
value is 0.
Specifies the mapping of the far clipping plane to window coordinates. The initial
value is 1.
After clipping and division by w, depth coordinates range from -1 to 1, corresponding to
the near and far clipping planes. Each viewport has an independent depth range specified
as a linear mapping of the normalized depth coordinates in this range to window depth
coordinates. Regardless of the actual depth buffer implementation, window coordinate depth
values are treated as though they range from 0 through 1 (like color components).
glDepthRangeIndexed specifies a linear mapping of the normalized depth coordinates in this
range to window depth coordinates for a specified viewport. Thus, the values accepted by
glDepthRangeIndexed are both clamped to this range before they are accepted.
The index parameter specifies the index of first viewport whose depth range to modify and
must be less than the value of GL_MAX_VIEWPORTS. nearVal and farVal specify near and far
values of the depth range for the specified viewport, respectively.
The setting of (0,1) maps the near plane to 0 and the far plane to 1. With this mapping,
the depth buffer range is fully utilized.
It is not necessary that the near plane distance be less than the far plane distance.
Reverse mappings such as nearVal = 1, and farVal = 0 are acceptable.
The type of the nearVal and farVal parameters was changed from GLclampd to GLdouble. This
change is transparent to user code and is described in detail on the removedTypes() page.
GL_INVALID_VALUE is generated if index is greater than or equal to the value of
glGet() with argument GL_DEPTH_RANGE
