I wan't to render some primitive with a mask texture, one channel used to clip pixel, it works well when lighting.
this is the relevant code:
[CODE]
Texture2D g_MaskMap : MaskMap;
uniform float g_MaskSpecularColorMulti : MaskSpecMulti = 1.0f;
uniform float g_MaskTransmissionMaskMulti : TransmissionMaskMulti = 1.0f;
uniform float g_MaskClipValue : MaskClip = 0.3333f;
uniform float g_EnableMasked : EnableMasked = 0.0f;
float4 GetMaterialMaskMapData( FDeferredShadingPSInput Input )
{
return g_MaskMap.Sample( g_SamplerStateLinearFlit, Input.oTex.xy ).xyzw;
}
float GetMaskedValue( float4 MaskData )
{
return MaskData.r;
}
void TryClip( float2 vTex )
{
if( g_EnableMasked < 1.0 )
{
return;
}
float4 vMaskData = g_MaskMap.Sample( g_SamplerStateLinearFlit, vTex.xy ).xyzw;
float MaskValue = GetMaskedValue( vMaskData );
MaskValue -= g_MaskClipValue;
clip( MaskValue );
}
float4 StaticMeshSpotLighting( HStaticMeshMaterialVSOutput Input ) : SV_TARGET
{
TryClip( Input.oTex );
return SpotLightingShading( Input );
}
[/CODE]
this is the final output:

but it produce a problem in shadow map, the gap of leaf is not rendered to depth buffer, I wan't to make a depth buffer which is masked by that mask texture.
this is the depth buffer, copy from nsight.
[attachment=7427:1.png]

// this is draw shadow map code:

[CODE]
float4 DrawShadowMapVS( HStaticMeshPositionVertexFactory Input ):SV_Position
{
float4 vWorldPos = mul( float4(Input.vPos, 1.0f ), mWorld );
float4 oPos = mul( vWorldPos, mLightViewProj );
return oPos;
}
technique10 DrawShadowMap
{
pass p0
{
SetVertexShader ( CompileShader( vs_5_0, DrawShadowMapVS() ) );
SetGeometryShader( NULL );
SetPixelShader( NULL );
SetRasterizerState( DisableCulling );
SetDepthStencilState( ZTestLess_DS, 0x00000000 );
SetBlendState( NoBlending_BS, float4( 1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f ), 0xffffffff );
}
}
[/CODE]

I realize we can use texture sample in vertex shader in dx11, so i make a new vertex shader for make the depth value of masked vertex always 1.0, but it doesn't work.

[CODE]
struct FMaskedShadowMapVSOutput
{
float4 oPos:SV_Position;
float2 oTex:TEXCOORD0;
};
FMaskedShadowMapVSOutput DrawShadowMapMaskedVS( HStaticMeshPositionWithTexVertexFactory Input )
{
FMaskedShadowMapVSOutput Output = (FMaskedShadowMapVSOutput)0;
float4 vWorldPos = mul( float4(Input.vPos, 1.0f ), mWorld );
Output.oPos = mul( vWorldPos, mLightViewProj );
Output.oTex = Input.vTex;
float4 vMaskData = g_MaskMap.Load( float3(Input.vTex.xy,0) ).xyzw;
float MaskValue = GetMaskedValue( vMaskData );
MaskValue -= g_MaskClipValue;
// it always far!!!
if( MaskValue <= 0 )
{
Output.oPos.z = Output.oPos.w;
}
return Output;
}
[/CODE]

so, i wan't to know, how to render a msked primitive into a depth buffer, when the masked value is less or equal to 0, discard that pixel, and did not write the depth value to depth buffer.
or other do you have a better way to do that.

If i have to make a render target to save depth value by my self, and then i can clip the pixel in the MakeShadowMap pixel shader?[img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/unsure.png[/img] [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/unsure.png[/img]

the "clip" HLSL function ("discard" in GLSL) prevents the pixel from writing to any bound target.

this way, have a generic pixel shader for your shadow write that does the texture sample and clips the pixels as necissary. Basically, your shadow-pass shader will require a pixel shader, no way around that.

thank you, i fixed it.
i have add a pixel shader, only output depth value.

[CODE]
struct FMaskedShadowMapPSOutput
{
float oDepth : SV_Depth;
};
FMaskedShadowMapPSOutput DrawShadowMapMaskedPixelShader( FMaskedShadowMapVSOutput Input )
{
FMaskedShadowMapPSOutput Output = (FMaskedShadowMapPSOutput)0;
TryClip( Input.oTex );

float z = Input.oPos.z;

Output.oDepth = z;
return Output;
}


technique10 DrawShadowMapMasked
{
pass p0
{
SetVertexShader ( CompileShader( vs_5_0, DrawShadowMapMaskedVS() ) );
SetGeometryShader( NULL );
SetPixelShader( CompileShader( ps_5_0, DrawShadowMapMaskedPixelShader() ) );

SetRasterizerState( DisableCulling );
SetDepthStencilState( ZTestLess_DS, 0x00000000 );
SetBlendState( NoBlending_BS, float4( 1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f ), 0xffffffff );
}
}

[/CODE]

You don't have to output SV_Depth. In fact, you really don't want to since it will just make it run slower. Just return SV_Target0, and return a value of 0 from your pixel shader. The only important part of your pixel shader is the part that calls clip or discard.

---------------------------
if i output depth to SV_Target0, does that mean, i will create a render target to do that,?
i think the depth buffer is necessary because it will help me to clip the shaded pixel, right?[img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/sad.png[/img] [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/sad.png[/img]

      Having some issues with a geometry shader in a very basic DX app.
      We have an assignment where we are supposed to render a rotating textured quad, and in the geometry shader duplicate this quad and offset it by its normal. Very basic stuff essentially.
      My issue is that the duplicated quad, when rendered in front of the original quad, seems to fail the Z test and thus the original quad is rendered on top of it.
      Whats even weirder is that this only happens for one of the triangles in the duplicated quad, against one of the original quads triangles.

      Here's a video to show you what happens: Video (ignore the stretched textures)

      Here's my GS: (VS is simple passthrough shader and PS is just as basic)
      struct VS_OUT { float4 Pos : SV_POSITION; float2 UV : TEXCOORD; }; struct VS_IN { float4 Pos : POSITION; float2 UV : TEXCOORD; }; cbuffer cbPerObject : register(b0) { float4x4 WVP; }; [maxvertexcount(6)] void main( triangle VS_IN input[3], inout TriangleStream< VS_OUT > output ) { //Calculate normal float4 faceEdgeA = input[1].Pos - input[0].Pos; float4 faceEdgeB = input[2].Pos - input[0].Pos; float3 faceNormal = normalize(cross(faceEdgeA.xyz, faceEdgeB.xyz)); //Input triangle, transformed for (uint i = 0; i < 3; i++) { VS_OUT element; VS_IN vert = input[i]; element.Pos = mul(vert.Pos, WVP); element.UV = vert.UV; output.Append(element); } output.RestartStrip(); for (uint j = 0; j < 3; j++) { VS_OUT element; VS_IN vert = input[j]; element.Pos = mul(vert.Pos + float4(faceNormal, 0.0f), WVP); element.Pos.xyz; element.UV = vert.UV; output.Append(element); } }  
      I havent used geometry shaders much so im not 100% on what happens behind the scenes.
      Any tips appreciated!

      Hi, I'm building a game engine using DirectX11 in c++.
      I need a basic physics engine to handle collisions and motion, and no time to write my own.
      What is the easiest solution for this? Bullet and PhysX both seem too complicated and would still require writing my own wrapper classes, it seems. 
      I found this thing called PAL - physics abstraction layer that can support bullet, physx, etc, but it's so old and no info on how to download or install it.
      The simpler the better. Please let me know, thanks!

      I try to draw lines with different thicknesses using the geometry shader approach from here:
      https://forum.libcinder.org/topic/smooth-thick-lines-using-geometry-shader
      It seems to work great on my development machine (some Intel HD). However, if I try it on my target (Nvidia NVS 300, yes it's old) I get different results. See the attached images. There
      seem to be gaps in my sine signal that the NVS 300 device creates, the intel does what I want and expect in the other picture.
      It's a shame, because I just can't figure out why. I expect it to be the same. I get no Error in the debug output, with enabled native debugging. I disabled culling with CullMode.None. Could it be some z-fighting? I have little clue about it but I tested to play around with the RasterizerStateDescription and DepthBias properties with no success, no change at all. Maybe I miss something there?
      I develop the application with SharpDX btw.
      Any clues or help is very welcome

      Hi,
      I'm currently trying to write a shader which shoud compute a fast fourier transform of some data, manipulating the transformed data, do an inverse FFT an then displaying the result as vertex offset and color. I use Unity3d and HLSL as shader language. One of the main problems is that the data should not be passed from CPU to GPU for every frame if possible. My original plan was to use a vertex shader and do the fft there, but I fail to find out how to store changing data betwen shader calls/passes. I found a technique called ping-ponging which seems to be based on writing and exchangeing render targets, but I couldn't find an example for HLSL as a vertex shader yet.
      I found https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/c79a3701-d028-41d9-ad74-a2b3b3958383/how-to-render-to-multiple-render-targets-in-hlsl?forum=xnaframework
      which seem to use COLOR0 and COLOR1 as such render targets.
      Is it even possible to do such calculations on the gpu only? (/in this shader stage?, because I need the result of the calculation to modify the vertex offsets there)
      I also saw the use of compute shaders in simmilar projects (ocean wave simulation), do they realy copy data between CPU / GPU for every frame?
      How does this ping-ponging / rendertarget switching technique work in HLSL?
      Have you seen an example of usage?
      Any answer would be helpfull.
      Thank you

      Hi
      Just a simple question about compute shaders (CS5, DX11).
      Do the atomic operations (InterlockedAdd in my case) should work without any issues on RWByteAddressBuffer and be globaly coherent ?
      I'v come back from CUDA world and commited fairly simple kernel that does some job, the pseudo-code is as follows:
      (both kernels use that same RWByteAddressBuffer)
      first kernel does some job and sets Result[0] = 0;
      (using Result.Store(0, 0))
      I'v checked with debugger, and indeed the value stored at dword 0 is 0
      now my second kernel
      RWByteAddressBuffer Result;  [numthreads(8, 8, 8)] void main() {     for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++)     {         uint4 v0 = DoSomeCalculations1();         uint4 v1 = DoSomeCalculations2();         uint4 v2 = DoSomeCalculations3();                  if (v0.w == 0 && v1.w == 0 && v2.w)             continue;         //    increment counter by 3, and get it previous value         // this should basically allocate space for 3 uint4 values in buffer         uint prev;         Result.InterlockedAdd(0, 3, prev);                  // this fills the buffer with 3 uint4 values (+1 is here as the first 16 bytes is occupied by DrawInstancedIndirect data)         Result.Store4((prev+0+1)*16, v0);         Result.Store4((prev+1+1)*16, v1);         Result.Store4((prev+2+1)*16, v2);     } } Now I invoke it with Dispatch(4,4,4)
      Now I use DrawInstancedIndirect to draw the buffer, but ocassionaly there is missed triangle here and there for a frame, as if the atomic counter does not work as expected
      do I need any additional synchronization there ?
      I'v tried 'AllMemoryBarrierWithGroupSync' at the end of kernel, but without effect.
      If I do not use atomic counter, and istead just output empty vertices (that will transform into degenerated triangles) the all is OK - as if I'm missing some form of synchronization, but I do not see such a thing in DX11.
      I'v tested on both old and new nvidia hardware (680M and 1080, the behaviour is that same).
