Note: If you want to use the offscreen renderer in your project to embedd Qt3D without having to use Qt3DWindow, checkout my implementation of a Qt3DWidget. It renders everything offline and uses the offscreen texture to paint a quad in a QOpenGLWidget.

This project is based on the Qt 3D basic shapes C++ example (https://doc.qt.io/qt-5.10/qt3d-basicshapes-cpp-example.html).

It renders the whole scene using a QOffscreenSurface offline and displays the image in a QLabel. To get the image to resize adjust the OffscreenEngines rendering size on resize of the widget. I guess the rest should be self-explanatory.

This is supposed to show how to construct an offline framegraph and save everyone who needs such a renderer the hours of trial and error and the despair I encountered.

Qt version

Make sure to use Qt >= 5.9.2 due to a bug in earlier versions: https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-61382

The framegraph

         |                   |                 |
    renderTarget        clearBuffers        viewport
         |                                     |
 renderTargetOutput                      cameraSelector


Somehow the first image that is captured is blank and without rendered objects. I suspected the problem to be that the render capture was triggered right after the clear buffers node. But it doesn't seem to have any effect when we place the capture node anywhere else. So basically the first image has to be skipped.

To enable depth tests just add a QRenderStateSet as a child to the camera selector and a QDepthTest as a child to the render state set and add it as a state. Then, in the render target add a texture to the depth attatchment point. This is it.

I experiemented with multisampling, and added a QMultiSampleAntiAliasing render state to the render state set and instead of adding a QTexture2D used a QMultisampleTexture2D but it gave me version errors with OpenGL. If maybe someone gets it running they can fork the project and I can then do a pull.
