Hello, has anyone a working code sample to create a pixel shader in HLSL and use it as texture shader to fill textures? I''d like to give this shader some additional parameters like constants and input textures. What is the difference between the tx_0 and tx_1 profile? Where can I find an example? Thanks in advance

Look at the soucecode to EffectEdit - but basically there are 2 parts to creating a procedural texture in HLSL

1) Create the actualy routine. All functionfillers can take up to 2 parameters. The first one is POSITION, and the second is PSIZE. All texture routines return a float4. If you are using a format that doesn''t have 4 channels, then set the others to 0 (they will be ignored anyway)., A texture fill routine might look like:

float4 Noise(float3 pos : POSITION, float3 size : PSIZE) : COLOR
return noise(pos);

2) Fill it, this might look something like:

LPD3DXBUFFER ShaderCode,Errors;

D3DXCompileShaderFromFile("file.fx", NULL, NULL, "main", "tx_1_0", &ShaderCode, &Errors,NULL)

D3DXFillTextureTX(MyTexture, ShaderCode->GetBufferPointer(), NULL, 0);

Thanks for your help,

one last thing: how can I access other textures within texture shaders? The constant table lists only vector4 objects.

Is it possible to bind a texture by Device->SetTexture(0, texture) to the first sampler stage and then access via HLSL?
I don''t know the binding semantic if this is possible.

Thanks in advance
