D3DXMatrix functions do nothing

05 June 2012 - 05:58 AM

When I call these functions the matrix, v_mat_world, remains unchanged, please help :S

    float origin[3] = {1, 0, 0}, angles[3] = {D3DXToRadian(180), 0, 0}, scale[3] = {1, 1, 1};

	D3DXMatrixIdentity (&v_mat_world);
	D3DXMatrixTranslation (&v_mat_world, origin[0], origin[1], origin[2]);
	D3DXMatrixRotationX (&v_mat_world, angles[0]);
	D3DXMatrixRotationY (&v_mat_world, angles[1]);
	D3DXMatrixRotationZ (&v_mat_world, angles[2]);
	D3DXMatrixScaling (&v_mat_world, scale[0], scale[1], scale[2]);

DirectX 11 coordinate system question

31 May 2012 - 09:37 AM

How do I make the coordinate system in DirectX 11 relative to the top left of the screen? I've setup an orthographic projection matrix, so that I can use screen coordinates but it makes more sense to me to have a top left origin, since I come from working with OpenGl.

I setup my projection matrix like this:
ww = the width of the window
and wh = the height of the window

projection = XMMatrixIdentity ();
projection = XMMatrixOrthographicLH (ww, wh, -1, 1);

fill pixel box

27 May 2012 - 01:11 PM

How would I go about filling a box with a given x and y and width and height up with pixels of a certain color?

I'm guessing it would involve making a new vertex buffer, but I don't know how to just fill it with a color

in opengl this could be done like:


AVIStreamGetFrameOpen Problem

19 May 2012 - 03:58 AM

First of all I learnt how to do this from http://nehe.gamedev....n_opengl/23001/
AVIStreamGetFrameOpen is always returning NULL. I checked to see if I could open the AVI file in windows media player and that worked, so that means it can't be a codec problem, right? I'm not too sure. All the variables have valid values before the call to AVIStreamGetFrameOpen
Here's my code:

if (AVIStreamOpenFromFile(&avi, file, streamtypeVIDEO, 0, OF_READ, NULL) != 0)
AVIStreamInfo (avi, &info, sizeof(info));
w = info.rcFrame.right - info.rcFrame.left;
h = info.rcFrame.bottom - info.rcFrame.top;
lastframe = AVIStreamLength (avi);
mpf = AVIStreamSampleToTime (avi, lastframe) / lastframe;
header.biSize = sizeof (BITMAPINFOHEADER);	
header.biPlanes = 1;		 
header.biBitCount = 24;		 
header.biWidth = BITMAP_WIDTH;		 
header.biHeight = BITMAP_HEIGHT;		 
header.biCompression = BI_RGB;	  
bitmap = CreateDIBSection (hdc, (BITMAPINFO*)(&header), DIB_RGB_COLORS, (void**)(&data), NULL, NULL);
SelectObject (hdc, bitmap);
pgf = AVIStreamGetFrameOpen (avi, NULL);
if (!pgf)
