So I'm having quite a bit of problem while converting my deferred rendering code (well, not mine exactly, I used Catalin Zima's tutorial) from XNA 4 to SlimDX's D3D9.

DeferredRenderer.cs:

I can post the shader files here too, but there's about 4 of them, so that's only if somebody wants me to, so as not to clutter the place.I basically copied them from the XNA example, and it being HLSL I didn't have to change it at all, since it's exactly the same both in XNA and SlimDX. It worked in XNA, so it should work here.

I'm getting this with the code above:

So the question is: what am I doing wrong and how do I fix it?

I'm using the Express edition of VS, so debugging this is quite difficult. I tried using PIX, but I'm not very experienced with it (or D3D) and it didn't really return anything too useful.

Do you get anything useful in the G-Buffer? Try drawing the contents of these render targets to the screen for real-time visualization:

colorRTSurface
normalRTSurface
depthRTSurface

You can also save them to disk and then view them offline. Do they have expected results?

They do, in fact. Here they are (depth not included, since it's mostly white, but it was the same in XNA and it worked):

colorRT

Hmm, after doing this:

[source lang="csharp"]Surface.ToFile(colorRTSurface, "colorRTSurface.png", ImageFileFormat.Png);Surface.ToFile(normalRTSurface, "normalRTSurface.png", ImageFileFormat.Png);Surface.ToFile(depthRTSurface, "depthRTSurface.png", ImageFileFormat.Png);[/source]

I get some weird results. I've attached the images.

I assume the QuadRenderer works correctly. Shouldn't the light direction vector be normalized?

I believe it does. When I tried passing 0.5f instead of 1.0f to the QuadRenderer, it covered half of the screen, so that works at least.

Here's the class, but I assume it works fine:

[source lang="csharp"]using System;using System.Collections.Generic;using SlimDX;using SlimDX.Direct3D9;namespace VoxelSubmarineGameSlimDXTest.DeferredRendering{ using VertexPositionTexture = VertexStructures.VertexPositionTexture; public class QuadRenderer { private static Device device; private static VertexPositionTexture[] verts = null; private static short[] ib = null; public static void Init(Device argDevice) { device = argDevice; ib = new short[] { 0, 1, 2, 2, 3, 0 }; } public static void Render(Vector2 v1, Vector2 v2) { device.SetSamplerState(0, SamplerState.MagFilter | SamplerState.MinFilter | SamplerState.MipFilter, TextureFilter.Point); device.SetSamplerState(0, SamplerState.AddressU | SamplerState.AddressV, TextureAddress.Wrap); verts = new VertexPositionTexture[] { new VertexPositionTexture( new Vector3(v2.X, v1.Y, 1), new Vector2(1, 1)), new VertexPositionTexture( new Vector3(v1.X, v1.Y, 1), new Vector2(0, 1)), new VertexPositionTexture( new Vector3(v1.X, v2.Y, 1), new Vector2(0, 0)), new VertexPositionTexture( new Vector3(v2.X, v2.Y, 1), new Vector2(1, 0)) }; device.VertexDeclaration = VertexStructures.VertexPositionTextureDeclaration; device.VertexFormat = VertexPositionTexture.Format; device.DrawIndexedUserPrimitives<short, VertexPositionTexture>(PrimitiveType.TriangleList, 0, 4, 2, ib, Format.Index16, verts, VertexPositionTexture.SizeInBytes); } }}[/source]

As for the light direction vector - it's normalized in the shaders themselves, but I believe things which are within the 0.0 to 1.0 range don't have to be normalized, since that's basically what normalizing does?

Scratch that, when I changed the VertexFormat to VertexFormat.None in the QuadRenderer class, everything seems to work.

What I would like to know is why, and if you have a good link on the subject for me to read, it would be greatly appreciated. :)

Can you post the code for directionalLightEffect and combineFinalEffect?

And as for "but I believe things which are within the 0.0 to 1.0 range don't have to be normalized, since that's basically what normalizing does"...


Normalizing causes a vector to become unit length. Even if the individual XYZ are in the 0.0 to 1.0 range, that doesn't mean the vector's length == 1.
