#5109362 Is there possible to use dynamic index in shader model 5.0?

However, a Texture2DArray does not allow multiple textures with different resolutions.

#4936017 How to get an value from Byte Address buffer in DX11, HLSL?

Thank you so much, Tsus, I have tried the Load function before and I got the same error, but maybe there is something wrong, now it is working.

#4936010 How to get an value from Byte Address buffer in DX11, HLSL?

Posted by steven166 on 30 April 2012 - 01:55 AM

I try to modidy the shader code of OIT, http://www.yakiimo3d.com/2010/07/25/dx11-order-independent-transparency-with-msaa/, and the source code can be downloaded from http://yakiimo3d.codeplex.com/releases/view/49570. But in StoreFragments.hlsl, when they render into a linked list, they use a byte address buffer for offset.
void StoreFragmentsPS( SceneVS_Output input )
    uint x = input.pos.x;	    // [0,g_nFrameWidth]
    uint y = input.pos.y;	    // [0,g_nFrameHeight]
    // Create fragment data.
    uint4 nColor = saturate( input.color ) * 255;
    FragmentLink element;
    element.fragmentData.nColor = (nColor.x) | (nColor.y << 8) | (nColor.z << 16) | (nColor.a << 24);
    element.fragmentData.fDepth = input.pos.z;

    // Increment and get current pixel count.
    uint nPixelCount= FLBuffer.IncrementCounter();

    // Read and update Start Offset Buffer.
    uint nIndex = y * g_nFrameWidth + x;
    uint nStartOffsetAddress = 4 * nIndex;
    uint nOldStartOffset;

	    nStartOffsetAddress, nPixelCount, nOldStartOffset );

if ( nOldStartOffset != 0xFFFFFFFF  ) {
  //get an error: array, matrix, vector or indexable object.......
  uint index = StartOffsetBuffer[ idx ];
    // Store fragment link.
    element.nNext = nOldStartOffset;
    FLBuffer[ nPixelCount ] = element;

With the function InterlockedExchange, nPixelCount value will be saved at nStartOffsetAddress position and we can get the old value. Hence, we can use nOldStartOffset value as an index to get the previous/next element, but why did I get that error? and how to solve it?
Anybody help me, please? Thank in advance.
