Those images are fairly typical of artefacts you get when depth
testing/writing is not enabled. Be aware that the final phase of Qt
Quick 2 rendering is typically to render transparent objects using alpha
blending. To do this QQ2 renders these items from back to front with
blending enabled to get the correct results. However, the important part
of this is that the depth buffer is disabled for writes.
This means that when you get to render your object, it is quite likely
that depth writes are still disabled. I see from your code that you are
enabling depth testing. However, without any sane values in the depth
buffer this won't work. To enable depth writes, try calling
glDepthMask(true) before you render any geometry.
Also please note that there is a new helper function to return the
OpenGL state to it's default (i.e. to undo the changes that the QQ2
renderer makes). The function is:
Amongst other things, this function also enabled depth writes as
suggested above. Whether you choose to use this helper or to only alter
the state that you need is your choice.
Hope this helps,
