hi. I have two questions need help. I use Direct3D to draw to graphics on the same surface. one is in the upper half, the other is in the lower half. the upper half one, before I render, I used two textures (g_pTexture1 ,g_pTexture2) to do color-op (which is what I needed), then when I render the lower half(g_pTexture3) , I found the graphics also color-op-ed, which is not what I wanted. How to disable the effectiveness cause by the color-op of the upper half graphics, so I can correctly draw out the lower half graphics? here is the code snippet:
void MyClass::Color-Op() { g_pd3dDevice->SetRenderState(D3DRS_ALPHABLENDENABLE,true); g_pd3dDevice->SetTexture( 0, g_pTexture1 ); g_pd3dDevice->SetRenderState(D3DRS_TEXTUREFACTOR,0x80000000); g_pd3dDevice->SetTextureStageState(0,D3DTSS_TEXCOORDINDEX,0); g_pd3dDevice->SetTextureStageState(0,D3DTSS_COLORARG1,D3DTA_TEXTURE); g_pd3dDevice->SetTextureStageState(0,D3DTSS_COLOROP,D3DTOP_SELECTARG1); g_pd3dDevice->SetTexture( 1, g_pTexture2 ); g_pd3dDevice->SetRenderState(D3DRS_TEXTUREFACTOR,0x80000000); g_pd3dDevice->SetTextureStageState(1,D3DTSS_TEXCOORDINDEX,0); g_pd3dDevice->SetTextureStageState(1,D3DTSS_COLORARG1,D3DTA_TEXTURE); g_pd3dDevice->SetTextureStageState(1,D3DTSS_COLORARG2,D3DTA_CURRENT); g_pd3dDevice->SetTextureStageSta(1,D3DTSS_COLOROP,D3DTOP_BLENDFACTORALPHA); g_pd3dDevice->SetRenderState(D3DRS_ALPHABLENDENABLE,false); }
here is the render function:
void MyClass::InitializeVertex() { //...... Color-Op(); //...... } void MyClass::Render() g_pd3dDevice->Clear( 0, NULL, D3DCLEAR_TARGET,D3DCOLOR_XRGB(0,0,0), 1.0f, 0 ); if( SUCCEEDED( g_pd3dDevice->BeginScene() ) ) { // now draw the uppper graphics g_pd3dDevice->SetTexture(0,g_pTexture2); (1) g_pd3dDevice->SetStreamSource( 0, g_pVB_upper, 0, sizeof(CUSTOMVERTEX) ); g_pd3dDevice->SetFVF( D3DFVF_CUSTOMVERTEX ); g_pd3dDevice->DrawPrimitive( D3DPT_TRIANGLELIST, 0, 2 ); Disable_Color_Op(); (2) g_pd3dDevice->SetTexture(0,m_pTexture3); g_pd3dDevice->SetStreamSource(0,g_pVB_lower,0,sizeof(SQUARE_CUSTOMVERTEX)); g_pd3dDevice->SetFVF(D3DFVF_SQUAREVERTEX); g_pd3dDevice->DrawPrimitive(D3DPT_TRIANGLESTRIP,0,2); g_pd3dDevice->EndScene(); } g_pd3dDevice->Present( NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL );
my two problems are: 1. my Color-Op() function is used in the vertex intialize phase. then when I used fixed pipeline to draw. I have to SetTexture to set texture for uppper graphics and lower graphics respectively before rendering. so I used (1) above. my hunch told me, this might not right, since I should get the color-op result of g_pTexture1 and g_pTexture2 to draw. but if not this (1); How to write one to achieve? 2. because I used Color-Op(), the second rendering come out a texture mixed with g_pTexture1 and g_pTexture2 , this is not right , I know this is caused by Color-Op() because if I delete this function, no mixed any more, but then the first rendering not right so I finger if I write a function to get rid of the effect by Color-Op(), i call it Disable_Color_Op(), then after both rendered, I can reuse Color-Op(). but How to write this Disable_Color_Op()? I know Color-Op() just set some states, but I don't know how to write. Conclude my questions: if (1) is right for me? if not how? How to write something in (2)? I am new to this directX thing. please help. thank you very much!

First of all, it's important to remember to set the stage after the one you use to 'disable'. For example, in your Color-Op function, use


This way when you set texture stages, there won't be any leftover operations from higher stages.

The default operation is to modulate the texture and diffuse colour. You can restore these texture stages to "disable colour op".

Also remember to use


to set the texcoord index back to its default value.

As for other problems in your code, relating to your question (1):

You should set the texture stages before you draw, and not only once (unless you always draw with the same stages). In Direct3D the last thing you set is what will remain from that point on. Since "disabling" your colour op is simply replacing it with other texture stages, you will need to set it again when you next want to use it.

As for line (1), why do you set g_pTexture2 there? In Color-Op you're setting g_pTexture1 to stage 0 and g_pTexture2 to stage 1, which would blend them. Then you're setting g_pTexture2 to stage 0, so when you're actually drawing, you're trying to blend g_pTexture2 with itself.
