WebGL2RenderingContext.texImage3D()

The WebGLRenderingContext.texImage3D() method of the WebGL API specifies a three-dimensional texture image.

Syntax

void gl.texImage3D(target, level, internalformat, width, height, depth, border, format, type, GLintptr offset);

void gl.texImage3D(target, level, internalformat, width, height, depth, border, format, type, HTMLCanvasElement source);
void gl.texImage3D(target, level, internalformat, width, height, depth, border, format, type, HTMLImageElement source);
void gl.texImage3D(target, level, internalformat, width, height, depth, border, format, type, HTMLVideoElement source);
void gl.texImage3D(target, level, internalformat, width, height, depth, border, format, type, ImageBitmap source);
void gl.texImage3D(target, level, internalformat, width, height, depth, border, format, type, ImageData source);
void gl.texImage3D(target, level, internalformat, width, height, depth, border, format, type, ArrayBufferView? srcData);
void gl.texImage3D(target, level, internalformat, width, height, depth, border, format, type, ArrayBufferView srcData, srcOffset);

Parameters

target

A GLenum specifying the binding point (target) of the active texture. Possible values:

  • gl.TEXTURE_3D: A three-dimensional texture.
  • gl.TEXTURE_2D_ARRAY: A two-dimensional array texture.
level

A GLint specifying the level of detail. Level 0 is the base image level and level n is the nth mipmap reduction level.

internalformat

A GLint specifying the color components in the texture. Possible values:

  • gl.ALPHA: Discards the red, green and blue components and reads the alpha component.
  • gl.RGB: Discards the alpha components and reads the red, green and blue components.
  • gl.RGBA: Red, green, blue and alpha components are read from the color buffer.
  • gl.LUMINANCE: Each color component is a luminance component, alpha is 1.0.
  • gl.LUMINANCE_ALPHA: Each component is a luminance/alpha component.

  • gl.UNSIGNED_SHORT_4_4_4_4: 4 red bits, 4 green bits, 4 blue bits, 4 alpha bits.
  • gl.UNSIGNED_SHORT_5_5_5_1: 5 red bits, 5 green bits, 5 blue bits, 1 alpha bit.
  • gl.BYTE

  • gl.FLOAT_32_UNSIGNED_INT_24_8_REV (pixels must be null)
source

One of the following objects can be used as a pixel source for the texture:

offset

A GLintptr byte offset into the WebGLBuffer's data store. Used to upload data to the currently bound WebGLTexture from the WebGLBuffer bound to the PIXEL_UNPACK_BUFFER target.

Return value

None.
