Sample neighbor texels

Hi,

I have 2 questions about GLSL texture sampling.

1) If I sample a texture with texture2DRect( diffuseTex , gl_TexCoord[0].xy ) ;
where xy are non-normalized coordinates (i.e. from (0,0) to (800,600),
where does a coordinate of (0,0) sample? Is this the bottom left cornor of a texel or the center or...?

2) What offsets do I need if I want to sample the right and left neighbor of the current texel in the fragment shader.


RightNeighborSample = texture2DRect( diffuseTex , gl_TexCoord[0].xy + rightOffset );
LeftNeighborSample = texture2DRect( diffuseTex , gl_TexCoord[0].xy + leftOffset );

Which values do I need for rightOffset? vec2(1,0) or vec2(0.5, 0), or ...?

Thanks!

texcoord_X + 1.0/size_width
texcoord_Y + 1.0/size_height

because texcoord go from 0.0 to 1.0 (0 to width)
and
for the height 0.0 to 1.0

Well, thanks. But actually that did not answer my questions.

First of all I am using texture2DRect(), which uses NON normalized coordiantes (I wrote it in my posting). Second I want to know where the sampling point in the texels is.

For regular textures, (0,0) is the lower left corner of the lower left texel, so I would imagine that it is the same for rectangular textures as well.

If each texel is already lined up with a pixel boundary, then gl_TexCoord[0].xy should already be selecting the center of a texel, so you'll just want to add 1.0 in each direction that you want to get the neighbor texel.
