I have heard that textures consumes lot of memory but I am surprised how much.... I have 7 textures 1024 16 bit each. And while I will run my app it consumes 57MB of memory. I think that this is "a bit" too much.
I am writing 2D application (no cocos or other framework)
Strange is that while I will compile my app with disabled rendering methods: glDrawArrays than It uses only 27MB.... which is about 30MB less...
Do you have any Idea why?
I am creating textures before rendering of course: rendering looks like this:
[EAGLContext setCurrentContext:context]; glBindFramebufferOES(GL_FRAMEBUFFER_OES, defaultFramebuffer); glClearColor(0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f); glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT); glPushMatrix(); glEnableClientState(GL_VERTEX_ARRAY); glEnableClientState(GL_TEXTURE_COORD_ARRAY); glEnable(GL_TEXTURE_2D); glEnable(GL_BLEND); glBlendFunc(GL_SRC_ALPHA, GL_ONE_MINUS_SRC_ALPHA); TeksturaObrazek *obrazek_klaw =[[AppDirector sharedAppDirector] obrazek_klaw]; glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, [[obrazek_klaw image_texture] name] ); glVertexPointer(2, GL_FLOAT, 0,vertex1); glTexCoordPointer(2, GL_FLOAT, 0, vertex2); glColor4f(1,1,1,alpha); glDrawArrays(GL_TRIANGLE_STRIP, 0, 4); glDisable(GL_BLEND); glDisable(GL_TEXTURE_2D); glDisableClientState(GL_TEXTURE_COORD_ARRAY); glPopMatrix(); [context presentRenderbuffer:GL_RENDERBUFFER_OES];
It looks like standard routine... I have spent about 2 days looking for for answer and I still have no clue.
