OpenGL Extentsion - GL_TEXTURE_2D_ARRAY_EXT - CLAMP_TO_BORDER not supported

Hello,

i just developed an opengl application that uses texture arrays.

I need to clamp my textures to the border so i definded the GL_TEXTURE_WRAP T and S to CLAMP_TO_BORDER.

glTexParameterf(GL_TEXTURE_2D_ARRAY_EXT, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_S, GL_CLAMP_TO_BORDER);
    glTexParameterf(GL_TEXTURE_2D_ARRAY_EXT, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_T, GL_CLAMP_TO_BORDER);

But this does not work with ati cards/drivers. Nvidia cards/drivers work just fine.

I tested ATI 4850 and 4890.

An example source code file can be downloaded here:

You can switch from GL_TEXTURE_2D to GL_TEXTURE_2D_ARRAY by enabling or disbling:

#define NOARRAY

 

Here can you see that the clamping is not applied when texture arrays are used:

In contrast to clamping when texture_2d's are used:

Is there a way to workaround this issue? When will the opengl implementation be fixed?

Greetings,

Jotschi
