Basic Shadow Mapping Depth Stencil Question

Recommended Posts

After Spending about 3 days trying to get shadow mapping to work I'm having some trouble getting the shadow mapped passed in to the shaders.


First I initialize the depth stencil and the resource view, then i draw ( I believe ) to the depth stencil. The problem that I am finding is that the depth stencil never has any data associated with it.


Pix shows no data in the resource view or the depth stencil, I am unable to save an image of the depth stencil to a file (I am from the non shadow depth stencil ). I am able to call DrawSceneShadow() and see a result I want though.


Any help is appreciated thank you.




    // Create depth stencil texture
    D3D10_TEXTURE2D_DESC descDepth;
    descDepth.Width = width;
    descDepth.Height = height;
    descDepth.MipLevels = 1;
    descDepth.ArraySize = 1;
    descDepth.Format = DXGI_FORMAT_R32_TYPELESS;
    descDepth.SampleDesc.Count = 1;
    descDepth.SampleDesc.Quality = 0;
    descDepth.Usage = D3D10_USAGE_DEFAULT;
    descDepth.BindFlags = D3D10_BIND_DEPTH_STENCIL;
    descDepth.CPUAccessFlags = 0;
    descDepth.MiscFlags = 0;
    hr = g_pd3dDevice->CreateTexture2D( &descDepth, NULL, &g_pDepthStencil );
    // Create the depth stencil view
    descDSV.Format = DXGI_FORMAT_D32_FLOAT;
    descDSV.ViewDimension = D3D10_DSV_DIMENSION_TEXTURE2D;
    descDSV.Texture2D.MipSlice = 0;
    hr = g_pd3dDevice->CreateDepthStencilView( g_pDepthStencil, &descDSV, &g_pDepthStencilView );
    //Shadow Mapping
    //create shadow map texture desc
    descDepth.Width = width;
    descDepth.Height = height;
    descDepth.Format = DXGI_FORMAT_R32_TYPELESS;
    //create shader resource view desc
    srvDesc.Format = DXGI_FORMAT_R32_FLOAT;
    srvDesc.ViewDimension = D3D10_SRV_DIMENSION_TEXTURE2D;
    srvDesc.Texture2D.MipLevels = descDepth.MipLevels;
    srvDesc.Texture2D.MostDetailedMip = 0;
Render Scene
//Create shadow map
    //set render targets
    //set render targets and viewport
    g_pd3dDevice->OMSetRenderTargets(0, 0, pShadowMapDepthView);
    g_pd3dDevice->ClearDepthStencilView( pShadowMapDepthView, D3D10_CLEAR_DEPTH, 1.0f, 0 );
    moveCam( lightPos.x, lightPos.y, lightPos.z );
    //Render final scene
    //set render targets
    g_pd3dDevice->OMSetRenderTargets(1, &g_pRenderTargetView, g_pDepthStencilView);    
    g_pd3dDevice->RSSetViewports(1, &vp);
    g_pd3dDevice->ClearRenderTargetView( g_pRenderTargetView, D3DXCOLOR(0.6f,0.6f,0.6f,0) );
    g_pd3dDevice->ClearDepthStencilView( g_pDepthStencilView, D3D10_CLEAR_DEPTH, 1.0f, 0 );
    //bind shadow map texture
    g_pEffect->GetVariableByName("shadowMap")->AsShaderResource()->SetResource( pShadowMapSRView );
    //unbind shadow map as SRV and call apply on scene rendering technique
    g_pEffect->GetVariableByName("shadowMap")->AsShaderResource()->SetResource( 0 );
    g_pRenderShadowMapTechnique->GetPassByIndex(0)->Apply( 0 );
