I just wanted to test whether my shader works ok, so I checked whether multiplying vertex position by identity matrix yields original position. Well, it does not... //identity matrix: float3x4 mat = (1,0,0,0, 0,1,0,0, 0,0,1,0); //IN.position is incoming vertex position as float4 float3 position = mul(mat, IN.position); //OUT.position is a float4 OUT.position = mul(model_view_proj, float4(position, 1.0f)); Without multiplication by mat the object is where it is supposed to be, with multiplication it disappears.

Well, it seems that you cannot specify matrices as I did.
This works ok:
float3x4 mat;
mat[0] = float4(1,0,0,0); mat[1] = float4(0,1,0,0); mat[2] = float4(0,0,1,0);

Btw. in my opinion the Cg User Manual is a poor documentation of the language.
