Steping into the code: Shaders

Recommended Posts

Is there any sort of program or application out there that enables me to enter a shader, specify a model, and see the result, BUT also do a "pause" and look inside, and step into the code of the shader, allowing me to view step by step whats going on, and what values variables are geting assigned? I have a few bones to pick with shaders... Salsa cooked it, your eyes eat it!

I''ve heard that indeed you can. Any way of doing something similar, even if using some middle-ware package to simulate the shader pipeline, under OpenGL?

RenderMonkey is the software you''re looking for. I''m not sure how much debugging support it has.

RenderMonkey won''t help him do it with OpenGL though.
I''m not aware of any tools that let you do shader debugging with OpenGL. You could try asking something similar on the opengl.org message boards, perhaps somebody knows better there.

The next version of RenderMonkey will support OGL but I have no idea when it'll be out, I don't think it'll be *too* long though...

i''ve downloaded rendermonkey 1.5, wich has glslang in..




If that''s not the help you''re after then you''re going to have to explain the problem better than what you have. - joanusdmentia

Ah, I see, roll on the public release of RenderMonkey 1.5.
Registered developers get it now, but it''s early April for the rest of us I believe.
