Another day, another issue.

Currently I am rendering a red point light in the world, but seemingly one point light is being applied independently for each object. Obviously I want one point light in the world to effect all objects (objects to share the same lighting). This issue was also apparent with my directional light.

I think it might be an issue either in my shader transforming into clip space and maybe then I need to do a new transformation

input.p = mul( input.p, World );
output.p = mul( input.p, View );  
output.p = mul( output.p, Projection );

Or the issue is in my baseObject render method, whereby I am rendering something per-object as opposed to globally, or there is a transformation I am missing to incorporate at this level

void dxBaseModel::render()

D3DXMatrixRotationYawPitchRoll(&rotMatrix, rotation.y, rotation.x, rotation.z);
D3DXMatrixTranslation(&posMatrix, position.x, position.y, position.z);
D3DXMatrixMultiply(&meshWorld, &rotMatrix, &posMatrix);


myTexture.pTextureSR->SetResource( myTexture.textureSRV[0] );



for( UINT p = 0; p < TechDesc.Passes; p++ )
  WVP = meshWorld*viewMatrix*projectionMatrix;

  pBasicTechnique->GetPassByIndex( p )->Apply( 0 );


Here's an image of the scene to illustrate the issue at hand.

Progress, but now the world is black,

I was setting

m_LightVec[lightNum]->pLightVar = pBasicEffect->GetVariableByName( "pLight" );
m_LightVec[lightNum]->pLightVar->SetRawValue(&m_LightVec[lightNum]->pointLight, 0, sizeof(pointLight));


m_LightVec[lightNum]->pLightVar = pBasicEffect->GetVariableByName( "pLight" );
m_LightVec[lightNum]->pLightVar->SetRawValue(&m_LightVec[lightNum]->directionalLight, 0, sizeof(DirectionalLight));

Now I am sure the issue is in my shader to do with the position of the light. I was generating the image above when I by accident, used the directional light pos(dir).

else if (pLightType == 1)
  lightIntensity = saturate(dot(bumpNormal, +pLight.pos));

  // Determine the final diffuse color based on the diffuse color and the amount of light intensity.
  color = saturate(material.Kd * lightIntensity);

  // The vector from the surface to the light.
  float3 lightVec = pLight.pos - input.p;

  // The distance from surface to light.
  float d = length(lightVec);

//if( d > pLight.range )
  //return float4(0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f);

// Normalize the light vector.
  lightVec /= d;

//color = color / dot(pLight.att, float3(1.0f, d, d*d))  * textureColor;
  color = color  * textureColor;

specularPower1 = 5.0f;//Need to make this modifiable outside of the shader
  if(lightIntensity > 0.0f)
   //Calculate the reflection vector based on the light intensity, normal vector and light direction
   reflection = normalize(2 * lightIntensity * bumpNormal +pLight.pos);
  // Determine the amount of specular light based on the reflection vector, viewing direction, and specular power.
   specular = pow(saturate(dot(reflection, lightVec)), specularPower1);
// Use the specular map to determine the intensity of specular light at this pixel.
   specular = specular * specularIntensity;
// Add the specular component last to the output color.
   color = saturate(color + specular);
   //calculate lighting
  I = calcBlinnPhongLighting( material, pLight.color, input.n, -pLight.pos, input.h );

I am still receiving the per-object light error as before still however!

Ok, So I think I have fixed every issue under the sun relating to all my previous issues. One issue remains however, there is a very stark contrast between a lit area and the falloff with the lighting.

I've been heavily experimenting and nothing I do seems to have an impact. As I move in the scene the dark area moves towards me and I cannot illuminate this area with the spotlight.
