<p>Hey guys,

I am trying to have a particle shader and fire shader working together in a scene but they each work only with one state:

For Particles to render well I use this :
    // Create an alpha enabled blend state description.
    blendStateDescription.RenderTarget[0].BlendEnable = TRUE;
    blendStateDescription.RenderTarget[0].SrcBlend = D3D11_BLEND_ONE;
    blendStateDescription.RenderTarget[0].DestBlend = D3D11_BLEND_ONE;
    blendStateDescription.RenderTarget[0].BlendOp = D3D11_BLEND_OP_ADD;
    blendStateDescription.RenderTarget[0].SrcBlendAlpha = D3D11_BLEND_ONE;
    blendStateDescription.RenderTarget[0].DestBlendAlpha = D3D11_BLEND_ZERO;
    blendStateDescription.RenderTarget[0].BlendOpAlpha = D3D11_BLEND_OP_ADD;
    blendStateDescription.RenderTarget[0].RenderTargetWriteMask = 0x0f;


and for fire I use this:
    // Create an alpha enabled blend state for fire shader
    blendStateDescription.RenderTarget[1].BlendEnable = TRUE;
    blendStateDescription.RenderTarget[1].SrcBlend = D3D11_BLEND_SRC_ALPHA;
    blendStateDescription.RenderTarget[1].DestBlend = D3D11_BLEND_INV_SRC_ALPHA;
    blendStateDescription.RenderTarget[1].BlendOp = D3D11_BLEND_OP_ADD;
    blendStateDescription.RenderTarget[1].SrcBlendAlpha = D3D11_BLEND_ONE;
    blendStateDescription.RenderTarget[1].DestBlendAlpha = D3D11_BLEND_ZERO;
    blendStateDescription.RenderTarget[1].BlendOpAlpha = D3D11_BLEND_OP_ADD;
    blendStateDescription.RenderTarget[1].RenderTargetWriteMask = 0x0f;


But I got no idea how assign one to particle shader and other one to fire shader

This is the outcome: eYn4t.pngThanks in advance

If you multiply the color intensity by 10 and divide the opacity by 10, you can get alpha filtering to look almost exactly like additive filtering. Only smoke in the fire may use dark colors or it will not look real. Alpha filtering also have the advantage of working well with distance based fog.

Hey Dawoodoz, I think I am doing the whole RenderTarget[0] RenderTarget[1] thing wrong.

I really can't find how to apply different blending states to different shaders

doing an array of render target blend descriptions is for when you are binding multiple render targets to the OM to be sent to the shader at once. Are you binding multiple render targets at once (sending the fire and particles to the shaders together)?

otherwise, the problem is probably that you are not setting the blending state before you draw your stuff. you have to make sure to set the blending state right before you draw your stuff.

d3d11DevCon->OMSetBlendState(particleTransparency, NULL, 0xffffffff);
d3d11DevCon->Draw(particles);

d3d11DevCon->OMSetBlendState(fireTransparency, NULL, 0xffffffff);
d3d11DevCon->Draw(fire);


If you are not binding multiple render targets, you probably want to just create two different blend states (eg. particleTransparency and fireTransparency), instead of just a single blend state with multiple blend descriptions. I hope that even makes sense, haha

well i begun doing Dx11 last week but it does make sense and I shall try to do it now, thanks for the advice [edit]You have my kindest thanks sir, as it worked like a charm :D Thank you

One more questions guys if you don't mind, where to find a good tutorial or some material on how to create a sky box in DX11?

Thanks

      Hi, right now building my engine in visual studio involves a shader compiling step to build hlsl 5.0 shaders. I have a separate project which only includes shader sources and the compiler is the visual studio integrated fxc compiler. I like this method because on any PC that has visual studio installed, I can just download the solution from GitHub and everything just builds without additional dependencies and using the latest version of the compiler. I also like it because the shaders are included in the solution explorer and easy to browse, and double-click to open (opening files can be really a pain in the ass in visual studio run in admin mode). Also it's nice that VS displays the build output/errors in the output window.
      But now I have the HLSL 6 compiler and want to build hlsl 6 shaders as well (and as I understand I can also compile vulkan compatible shaders with it later). Any idea how to do this nicely? I want only a single project containing shader sources, like it is now, but build them for different targets. I guess adding different building projects would be the way to go that reference the shader source project? But how would they differentiate from shader type of the sources (eg. pixel shader, compute shader,etc.)? Now the shader building project contains for each shader the shader type, how can other building projects reference that?
      Anyone with some experience in this?

      Hello!
      Have a problem with reflection shader for D3D11:
      1>engine_render_d3d11_system.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol IID_ID3D11ShaderReflection
      I tried to add this:
      #include <D3D11Shader.h>
      #include <D3Dcompiler.h>
      #include <D3DCompiler.inl>
      #pragma comment(lib, "D3DCompiler.lib")
      //#pragma comment(lib, "D3DCompiler_47.lib")
      As MSDN tells me but still no fortune. I think lot of people did that already, what I missing?
      I also find this article http://mattfife.com/?p=470
      where recommend to use SDK headers and libs before Wind SDK, but I am not using DirectX SDK for this project at all, should I?

      Hi there, this is my first post in what looks to be a very interesting forum.
      I am using DirectXTK to put together my 2D game engine but would like to use the GPU depth buffer in order to avoid sorting back-to-front on the CPU and I think I also want to use GPU instancing, so can I do that with SpriteBatch or am I looking at implementing my own sprite rendering?
      Thanks in advance!

      I am trying to draw a screen-aligned quad with arbitrary sizes.
       
      currently I just send 4 vertices to the vertex shader like so:
      pDevCon->IASetPrimitiveTopology(D3D_PRIMITIVE_TOPOLOGY_TRIANGLESTRIP);
      pDevCon->Draw(4, 0);
       
      then in the vertex shader I am doing this:
      float4 main(uint vI : SV_VERTEXID) : SV_POSITION
      {
       float2 texcoord = float2(vI & 1, vI >> 1);
      return float4((texcoord.x - 0.5f) * 2, -(texcoord.y - 0.5f) * 2, 0, 1);
      }
      that gets me a screen-sized quad...ok .. what's the correct way to get arbitrary sizes?...I have messed around with various numbers, but I think I don't quite get something in these relationships.
      one thing I tried is: 
       
      float4 quad = float4((texcoord.x - (xpos/screensizex)) * (width/screensizex), -(texcoord.y - (ypos/screensizey)) * (height/screensizey), 0, 1);
       
      .. where xpos and ypos is number of pixels from upper right corner..width and height is the desired size of the quad in pixels
      this gets me somewhat close, but not right.. a bit too small..so I'm missing something ..any ideas?

      Hi,
      I've been trying to implement a gaussian blur recently, it would seem the best way to achieve this is by running a bur on one axis, then another blur on the other axis.
      I think I have successfully implemented the blur part per axis, but now I have to blend both calls with a proper BlendState, at least I think this is where my problem is.
      Here are my passes:
      RasterizerState DisableCulling { CullMode = BACK; }; BlendState AdditiveBlend { BlendEnable[0] = TRUE; BlendEnable[1] = TRUE; SrcBlend[0] = SRC_COLOR; BlendOp[0] = ADD; BlendOp[1] = ADD; SrcBlend[1] = SRC_COLOR; }; technique11 BlockTech { pass P0 { SetVertexShader(CompileShader(vs_5_0, VS())); SetGeometryShader(NULL); SetPixelShader(CompileShader(ps_5_0, PS_BlurV())); SetRasterizerState(DisableCulling); SetBlendState(AdditiveBlend, float4(0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0), 0xffffffff); } pass P1 { SetVertexShader(CompileShader(vs_5_0, VS())); SetGeometryShader(NULL); SetPixelShader(CompileShader(ps_5_0, PS_BlurH())); SetRasterizerState(DisableCulling); } }  
      D3DX11_TECHNIQUE_DESC techDesc; mBlockEffect->mTech->GetDesc( &techDesc ); for(UINT p = 0; p < techDesc.Passes; ++p) { deviceContext->IASetVertexBuffers(0, 2, bufferPointers, stride, offset); deviceContext->IASetIndexBuffer(mIB, DXGI_FORMAT_R32_UINT, 0); mBlockEffect->mTech->GetPassByIndex(p)->Apply(0, deviceContext); deviceContext->DrawIndexedInstanced(36, mNumberOfActiveCubes, 0, 0, 0); } No blur

       
      PS_BlurV

      PS_BlurH

      P0 + P1

      As you can see, it does not work at all.
      I think the issue is in my BlendState, but I am not sure.
      I've seen many articles going with the render to texture approach, but I've also seen articles where both shaders were called in succession, and it worked just fine, I'd like to go with that second approach. Unfortunately, the code was in OpenGL where the syntax for running multiple passes is quite different (http://rastergrid.com/blog/2010/09/efficient-gaussian-blur-with-linear-sampling/). So I need some help doing the same in HLSL :-)
       
      Thanks!
