backbuffer=backbuffer * texture - blend modes

Recommended Posts

Hello Kitty    106
I am making a dx9 ao shader.

I have the ao greyscale image in a texture, and the rendered scene in the backbuffer.

What blendmodes (dx9 fixed function pipeline) would I need to multiply the ao texture against the backbuffer.

something like this : backbuffer=backbuffer*aotexture

I currently have the following, but it is not blending with the backbuffer.

gRender->SetRenderState(D3DRS_SRCBLEND, D3DBLEND_ZERO);
gRender->SetTextureStageState( 0, D3DTSS_COLOROP, D3DTOP_MODULATE );
gRender->SetTextureStageState( 0, D3DTSS_COLORARG1, D3DTA_TEXTURE );
gRender->SetTextureStageState( 0, D3DTSS_COLORARG2, D3DTA_DIFFUSE );
gRender->SetTextureStageState( 0, D3DTSS_ALPHAOP, D3DTOP_SELECTARG2 );
gRender->SetTextureStageState( 0, D3DTSS_ALPHAARG2, D3DTA_DIFFUSE );

Is it even possible to blend a texture with the existing backbuffer?

The only blend operations supported are listed here. If you need anything else you'll need to render your scene to a render target, and then take that render target along with the AO texture as inputs to a shader that blends them in the way you want.

The first 3 lines of code you posted do set up the correct blend mode, i.e.
result = src*0 + dest * source
result = dest * source

The next 5 lines of code seem to be telling the FFP to multiply your AO texture with the vertex diffuse colour -- do you need to do this as well?

What do you mean by "it is not blending with the backbuffer"? Do you end up with the backbuffer, the ao-buffer, just a black screen, etc?
