WebGL2RenderingContext.texImage3D()

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

Syntax

texImage3D(target, level, internalformat, width, height, depth, border, format, type, offset)
texImage3D(target, level, internalformat, width, height, depth, border, format, type, source)
texImage3D(target, level, internalformat, width, height, depth, border, format, type, srcData)
texImage3D(target, level, internalformat, width, height, depth, border, format, type, 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 n-th 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_BYTE: 8 bits per channel for gl.RGBA
  • gl.UNSIGNED_SHORT_5_6_5: 5 red bits, 6 green bits, 5 blue bits.
  • 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.UNSIGNED_SHORT
  • gl.SHORT
  • gl.UNSIGNED_INT
  • gl.INT
  • gl.HALF_FLOAT
  • gl.FLOAT
  • gl.UNSIGNED_INT_2_10_10_10_REV

  • gl.UNSIGNED_INT_5_9_9_9_REV
  • gl.UNSIGNED_INT_24_8
  • 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:

srcData

A TypedArray or a DataView object.

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 (undefined).

Examples

gl.texImage3D(gl.TEXTURE_3D,
              0,                                          // level
              gl.RGBA,                                    // internalFormat
              1,                                          // width
              1,                                          // height
              1,                                          // depth
              0,                                          // border
              gl.RGBA,                                    // format
              gl.UNSIGNED_BYTE,                           // type
              new Uint8Array([0xff, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00]));  // data
