Hi guys,

 

how can you, in the most correct way, map normals and position to a texture, I'm guessing like this, but I think I'm wrong:

 

PS. Is depth maps the same as position maps?

VS:

output.NormalW = mul(normal, worldMatrix);
output.depthPosition = output.position;

PS:
 
float depth = (input.depthPosition.w / 1000.0f);
output.Depth = float4(depth, depth, depth, 1);

output.Normals = float4(input.NormalW, 1);

float depth = (input.depthPosition.w / 1000.0f);
output.Depth = float4(depth, depth, depth, 1);

 

When I mean, 'the correct way', I mean so that this texture can be used in e.g:

Thanks!

I'm sure you all know, but you're awfully quiet, again. 

 

Am I doing something really stupid here? huh.png

output.NormalW = mul(float4(normal.xyz, 0.f), worldMatrix);

 

float depth = input.depthPosition.z / input.depthPosition.w;

Better to output depth linearly for better precision distribution.

 

float depth = input.depthPosition.w * inverseFarPlaneDistance;
