Hi All, I have a problem with setting lighting and material in my code. I would like to visualize a 3D model (which I parse it in myself) and the structure of a vertex is defined as follows: struct a_customvertex { float x, y, z; float nx,ny,nz; }; Also I have a point cloud which for a vertex in the cloud is defined as follows: typedef struct PositionColor { public: PositionColor() : X(0), Y(0), Z(0), Color(0) {} PositionColor( float x, float y, float z, DWORD color ) : X(x), Y(y), Z(z), Color(color) {} float X, Y, Z; DWORD Color; } PositionColor; I have set the FVF for the a_customvertex based model as D3DFVF_XYZ | D3DFVF_NORMAL and for PositionColor used for point cloud as D3DFVF_XYZ | D3DFVF_DIFFUSE. Here is how I use lighting on my OnRenderFrame class: pDevice->BeginScene(); SetUpLights( pDevice ); ... pDevice->SetStreamSource(0, m_aplannedB, 0, sizeof(a_customvertex)); //Render the 3d model STRUCT_INSTANCES * instance = first_instance; while (instance) { pDevice->DrawPrimitive(D3DPT_TRIANGLELIST, instance->startIndex, instance->primitiveCount); } instance = instance->next; } D3DMATERIAL9 mtrl; mtrl.Diffuse.r = mtrl.Ambient.r = mtrl.Specular.r = 1.0f; mtrl.Diffuse.g = mtrl.Ambient.g = mtrl.Specular.g = 1.0f; mtrl.Diffuse.b = mtrl.Ambient.b = mtrl.Specular.b = 1.0f; mtrl.Diffuse.a = mtrl.Ambient.a = mtrl.Specular.a = 0.5f; mtrl.Emissive.r = 0.1f; mtrl.Emissive.g = 0.1f; mtrl.Emissive.b = 0.1f; mtrl.Emissive.a = 0.5f; pDevice->SetMaterial(&mtrl); ... pDevice->EndScene(); pDevice->Present( 0, 0, 0, 0 ); Here is my light class: void CApp::SetUpLights( LPDIRECT3DDEVICE9 pDevice ) { float max = 1; D3DXVECTOR3 vecDir; D3DLIGHT9 light; ZeroMemory(&light, sizeof(D3DLIGHT9)); light.Type = D3DLIGHT_DIRECTIONAL; light.Diffuse.r = 0.5f; light.Diffuse.g = 0.5f; light.Diffuse.b = 0.5f; light.Diffuse.a = 1.0f; light.Specular.r = 0.0f; light.Specular.g = 0.0f; light.Specular.b = 0.0f; light.Specular.a = 0.0f; light.Ambient.r = 0.0f; light.Ambient.g = 0.0f; light.Ambient.b = 0.0f; light.Ambient.a = 0.0f; light.Position.x = (float) -2.0f; light.Position.y = (float) -2.0f; light.Position.z = (float) -2.0f; vecDir.x = -2.0f; vecDir.y = -6.0f; vecDir.z = -1.0f; D3DXVec3Normalize((D3DXVECTOR3*)&light.Direction, &vecDir); light.Range = 5.0f; pDevice->SetLight( 0, &light ); pDevice->LightEnable ( 0, true ) ; D3DLIGHT9 light1; ZeroMemory(&light1, sizeof(D3DLIGHT9)); light1.Type = D3DLIGHT_DIRECTIONAL; light1.Diffuse.r = 0.5f; light1.Diffuse.g = 0.5f; light1.Diffuse.b = 0.5f; light1.Diffuse.a = 1.0f; light1.Specular.r = 0.0f; light1.Specular.g = 0.0f; light1.Specular.b = 0.0f; light1.Specular.a = 0.0f; light1.Ambient.r = 0.0f; light1.Ambient.g = 0.0f; light1.Ambient.b = 0.0f; light1.Ambient.a = 0.0f; light1.Position.x = (float) 2.0f; light1.Position.y = (float) 2.0f; light1.Position.z = (float) 2.0f; vecDir.x = 2.0f; vecDir.y = 6.0f; vecDir.z = 1.0f; D3DXVec3Normalize((D3DXVECTOR3*)&light1.Direction, &vecDir); light1.Range = 5.0f; pDevice->SetLight( 1, &light1 ); pDevice->LightEnable ( 1, true ) ; // Finally, turn on some ambient light. pDevice->SetRenderState(D3DRS_AMBIENT, 0x00707070 ); } Unfortunately the 3d model appears in black (as if the normals are not parsed in). I have traced the parsing and I am for sure the normals are in, however the model still appears in black and the pointcloud gets colored!!! Is there anyway that I can figure out what's going wrong with the material and/or lighting setup for the 3D model and why instead of lighting the model, it lights the point cloud? Thanks, Albert
