DX11 [DX11]Defferd Rendering

Recommended Posts

Tordin    625

Im working with Defferd rendering and i stumbeld on a wierd problem.

When i am using my own engine i cant get defferd rendering to work, EA, i cant seem to calulate the values right.
and i dont know in which end it could be lying it.

First tought was that i dident send the values to the shader correct. i lookt at pix and it told me that i acctualy did.
Then i tought it was somthing with my equation, and no, it´s not, i have calulated it over ten times.
Then i tought maybe it got somthing to do with my G-Buffer? and here is where i am right now.
when i did this the last time i saved the postion in world space, thats what im doing right now. but i still get wierd values.
Unforunelty i cant debug the pixel in PIX since it crashes every time i try to debug something there... o_O

When i am using another engine i get it working right away...

So internetZ, do you have any advice or clues?

If you render the GBuffer outputs to the screen (or save them to file), do you see anything wrong with them? Try posting your code or render output here... someone might catch the bug.

true true!

Here is the code for rendering the G buffer


float4 viewPos = mul(IN.imWorld,float4(,1.0));
OUT.Position = viewPos;
OUT.Normal = IN.Normal;
viewPos = mul(g_MatrixView,viewPos);
OUT.Depth = abs((viewPos.z - 0.1f) / ( 128.0f - 0.1f));

return OUT;


HS_CONSTANT_DATA_OUTPUT ConstantHS( InputPatch<VS_OUTPUT, 3> ip,uint PatchID : SV_PrimitiveID )
float2 UV = (ip[0].UV + ip[1].UV + ip[2].UV) / 3;
float TessFac = 1;
Output.Edges[0] = Output.Edges[1] = Output.Edges[2] = TessFac;
Output.Inside = TessFac;
return Output;

HS_OUTPUT HS( InputPatch<VS_OUTPUT, 3> IN,uint i : SV_OutputControlPointID,
uint PatchID : SV_PrimitiveID )
OUT.Position = IN[i].Position;
OUT.Normal = IN[i].Normal;
OUT.UV = IN[i].UV;
OUT.Depth = IN[i].Depth;
return OUT;


DS_OUTPUT DS( HS_CONSTANT_DATA_OUTPUT input,float3 UV : SV_DomainLocation,const OutputPatch<HS_OUTPUT, 3> quad )
//Calculate the new position
float time = 0.0f;
float3 finalPos = ( UV.x * quad[0].Position + UV.y * quad[1].Position + UV.z * quad[2].Position );
float finalDepth = ( UV.x * quad[0].Depth + UV.y * quad[1].Depth + UV.z * quad[2].Depth );
float3 finalNormal = ( UV.x * quad[0].Normal + UV.y * quad[1].Normal + UV.z * quad[2].Normal );
float3 normal = normalize(finalNormal);
float2 uv = ( UV.x * quad[0].UV + UV.y * quad[1].UV + UV.z * quad[2].UV );
float4 dis = color.SampleLevel(SamplerStateAnisoWrap, uv + time, 1);

//finalPos = finalPos + (normal * df);
Output.Position = mul( g_MatrixViewProj, float4(finalPos,1.0) );
Output.UV = uv;
Output.Normal = normal;
Output.Depth = finalDepth;
return Output;

float4 TexColor = color.Sample( SamplerStateAnisoWrap, IN.UV );
float3 Color = TexColor.rgb;

OUT.Color = float4( Color, 1.0 );
OUT.Depth = float4( IN.Depth,0.0,0.0,0.0 );
OUT.Pos = IN.Position;
OUT.Normal = float4(IN.Normal,1.0);

return OUT;

One more thing... can you explain in detail what the problem is? Showing a screenshot of desired output versus your engine's output will help (since you said you can get it working on other engines).

I gona explain the problem in code ;)


float3 texColor = tex0.Sample(SamplerStateAnisoWrap, IN.UV).xyz;
float3 texPosition = tex2.Sample(SamplerStateAnisoWrap, IN.UV).xyz;
float3 texNormal = tex3.Sample(SamplerStateAnisoWrap, IN.UV).xyz;
float3 color = texColor * 0.2;
for(int i = 0; i<g_NumLights; ++i)
float3 lightPos = g_LightPos[i];
float3 vec = texPosition - lightPos;
float vecLength = dot(vec,vec);
float intensity = 1.0 - saturate(vecLength / (g_LightRange[i] * g_LightRange[i]) );
color += texColor * intensity;
OUT.Color = float4(color,1.0);
return OUT;

intensity will become zero.
And here is an explanation behind the entire equation.

1 : Get the postion from the texture
2 : Get the position from the light.
3 : Get a direction vector
4 : Get the length^2
5 : divide the length^2 by the max range^2 (of the light) (then we will get a value from 0->1 if the light is in range and 1->inf if the light is out of range)
6 : saturate this value so it rages from 0->1
7 : subtract one to get the less values futher away.
8 : add the color multiplyed by the intesity we calculated.

And this works for the other engine..

      I am trying to add normal map to my project I have an example of a cube: 
      I have normal in my shader I think. Then I set shader resource view for texture (NOT BUMP)
                  device.ImmediateContext.PixelShader.SetShaderResource(0, textureView);             device.ImmediateContext.Draw(VerticesCount,0); What should I do to set my normal map or how it is done in dx11 generally example c++?

      Imagine that we have a vertex structure that looks like this:
      struct Vertex { XMFLOAT3 position; XMFLOAT4 color; }; The vertex shader looks like this:
      cbuffer MatrixBuffer { matrix world; matrix view; matrix projection; }; struct VertexInput { float4 position : POSITION; float4 color : COLOR; }; struct PixelInput { float4 position : SV_POSITION; float4 color : COLOR; }; PixelInput main(VertexInput input) { PixelInput output; input.position.w = 1.0f; output.position = mul(input.position, world); output.position = mul(output.position, view); output.position = mul(output.position, projection); output.color = input.color; return output; } And the pixel shader looks like this:
      struct PixelInput { float4 position : SV_POSITION; float4 color : COLOR; }; float4 main(PixelInput input) : SV_TARGET { return input.color; } Now let's create a quad consisting of 2 triangles and the vertices A, B, C and D:
      // Vertex A. vertices[0].position = XMFLOAT3(-1.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f); vertices[0].color = XMFLOAT4( 0.5f, 0.5f, 0.5f, 1.0f); // Vertex B. vertices[1].position = XMFLOAT3( 1.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f); vertices[1].color = XMFLOAT4( 0.5f, 0.5f, 0.5f, 1.0f); // Vertex C. vertices[2].position = XMFLOAT3(-1.0f, -1.0f, 0.0f); vertices[2].color = XMFLOAT4( 0.5f, 0.5f, 0.5f, 1.0f); // Vertex D. vertices[3].position = XMFLOAT3( 1.0f, -1.0f, 0.0f); vertices[3].color = XMFLOAT4( 0.5f, 0.5f, 0.5f, 1.0f); // 1st triangle. indices[0] = 0; // Vertex A. indices[1] = 3; // Vertex D. indices[2] = 2; // Vertex C. // 2nd triangle. indices[3] = 0; // Vertex A. indices[4] = 1; // Vertex B. indices[5] = 3; // Vertex D. This will result in a grey quad as shown in the image below. I've outlined the edges in red color to better illustrate the triangles:

      Now imagine that we’d want our quad to have a different color in vertex A:
      // Vertex A. vertices[0].position = XMFLOAT3(-1.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f); vertices[0].color = XMFLOAT4( 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f);
      That works as expected since there’s now an interpolation between the black color in vertex A and the grey color in vertices B, C and D. Let’s revert the previus changes and instead change the color of vertex C:
      // Vertex C. vertices[2].position = XMFLOAT3(-1.0f, -1.0f, 0.0f); vertices[2].color = XMFLOAT4( 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f);
      As you can see, the interpolation is only done half of the way across the first triangle and not across the entire quad. This is because there's no edge between vertex C and vertex B.
      Which brings us to my question:
      I want the interpolation to go across the entire quad and not only across the triangle. So regardless of which vertex we decide to change the color of, the color interpolation should always go across the entire quad. Is there any efficient way of achieving this without adding more vertices and triangles?
      An illustration of what I'm trying to achieve is shown in the image below:

      This is just a very brief explanation of the problems background in case that would make it easier for you to understand the problems roots and maybe help you with finding a better solution to the problem.
      I'm trying to texture a terrain mesh in DirectX11. It's working, but I'm a bit unsatisfied with the result. When changing the terrain texture of a single vertex, the interpolation with the other vertices results in a hexagon shape instead of a squared shape:

      As the red arrows illustrate, I'd like the texture to be interpolated all the way into the corners of the quads.

      Hello, I'm close to releasing my first game to Steam however, my game keeps failing the review process because it keeps crashing. The problem is that the game doesn't crash on my computer, on my laptop, on our family computer, on fathers laptop and i also gave 3 beta keys to people i know and they said the game hasn't crashed.
      Steam reports that the game doesn't crash on startup but few frames after a level has been started.
      What could cause something like this? I have no way of debugging this as the game works fine on every computer i have.
      Game is written in C++, using DirectX 11 and DXUT framework.

      I'm trying to get, basically, screenshot (each 1 second, without saving) of Direct3D11 application. Code works fine on my PC(Intel CPU, Radeon GPU) but crashes after few iterations on 2 others (Intel CPU + Intel integrated GPU, Intel CPU + Nvidia GPU).
      void extractBitmap(void* texture) { if (texture) { ID3D11Texture2D* d3dtex = (ID3D11Texture2D*)texture; ID3D11Texture2D* pNewTexture = NULL; D3D11_TEXTURE2D_DESC desc; d3dtex->GetDesc(&desc); desc.BindFlags = 0; desc.CPUAccessFlags = D3D11_CPU_ACCESS_READ | D3D11_CPU_ACCESS_WRITE; desc.Usage = D3D11_USAGE_STAGING; desc.Format = DXGI_FORMAT_R8G8B8A8_UNORM_SRGB; HRESULT hRes = D3D11Device->CreateTexture2D(&desc, NULL, &pNewTexture); if (FAILED(hRes)) { printCon(std::string("CreateTexture2D FAILED:" + format_error(hRes)).c_str()); if (hRes == DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_REMOVED) printCon(std::string("DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_REMOVED -- " + format_error(D3D11Device->GetDeviceRemovedReason())).c_str()); } else { if (pNewTexture) { D3D11DeviceContext->CopyResource(pNewTexture, d3dtex); // Wokring with texture pNewTexture->Release(); } } } return; } D3D11SwapChain->GetBuffer(0, __uuidof(ID3D11Texture2D), reinterpret_cast< void** >(&pBackBuffer)); extractBitmap(pBackBuffer); pBackBuffer->Release(); Crash log:
      CreateTexture2D FAILED:887a0005 DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_REMOVED -- 887a0020 Once I comment out 
      D3D11DeviceContext->CopyResource(pNewTexture, d3dtex); 
      code works fine on all 3 PC's.

      Hi i'm new to this forum and was wondering if there are any good places to start learning directX 11. I bought Frank D Luna's book but it's really outdated and the projects won't even compile. I was excited to start learning from this book because it gives detailed explanations on the functions being used as well as the mathematics. Are there any tutorials / courses /books that are up to date which goes over the 3D math and functions in a detailed manner? Or where does anyone here learn directX 11? I've followed some tutorials from this website which did a nice job but it doesn't explain what's happening with the math so I feel like I'm not actually learning, and it only goes up until color blending. Rasteriks tutorials doesn't go over the functions much at all or the math involved either. I'd really appreciate it if anyone can point me in the right direction, I feel really lost. Thank you
