World Matrix and Constant Buffer problem

Recommended Posts

Not sure what to think on this, really confused.

 

I'll try to explain what I need to do best I can, its quite alot..

 

Firstly I have this method:

 

void MD5::RenderBuffers(ID3D11DeviceContext* deviceContext)
{
	unsigned int stride;
	unsigned int offset;

	//Set the vertex and pixel shaders that will be used to render this model
	deviceContext->VSSetShader(m_vertexShader, NULL, 0);
	deviceContext->PSSetShader(m_pixelShader, NULL, 0);

	//Set vertex buffer stride and offset
	stride = sizeof(VertexType); 
	offset = 0;

	for(int i = 0; i < m_NewMD5Model.numSubsets; i ++)
	{
		//Set the grounds index buffer
		deviceContext->IASetIndexBuffer(m_NewMD5Model.subsets[i].indexBuff, DXGI_FORMAT_R32_UINT, 0);
		//Set the grounds vertex buffer
		deviceContext->IASetVertexBuffers(0, 1, &m_NewMD5Model.subsets[i].vertBuff, &stride, &offset);

		WVP = world * view * projection;
		m_cbPerObj.WVP = XMMatrixTranspose(WVP);		
		m_cbPerObj.World = XMMatrixTranspose(m_smilesWorld);	
		m_cbPerObj.hasTexture = true;
		m_cbPerObj.hasNormMap = false;
		deviceContext->UpdateSubresource(cbPerObjectBuffer, 0, NULL, &m_cbPerObj, 0, 0);
		deviceContext->VSSetConstantBuffers(0, 1, &cbPerObjectBuffer);
		deviceContext->PSSetConstantBuffers(1, 1, &cbPerObjectBuffer);
		deviceContext->PSSetShaderResources(0, 1, &m_meshSRV[m_NewMD5Model.subsets[i].texArrayIndex]);
		deviceContext->PSSetSamplers(0, 1, &m_CubesTexSamplerState);
		deviceContext->RSSetState(m_RSCullNone);

		//Draw
		deviceContext->DrawIndexed(m_NewMD5Model.subsets[i].indices.size(), 0, 0 );
	}
}

 

This method is used to render an MD5 model, by applying World Matrix properties and other values such as that from the shader.

 

This line here:

D3DXMATRIX WVP;
WVP = world * view * projection;

 

World, View and Projection need to know about this struct in the header file

 

		struct MatrixBufferType
		{
			D3DXMATRIX world;
			D3DXMATRIX view;
			D3DXMATRIX projection;
		};

 

 

but instead return errors like this:

Once these have correct values, I will be able to apply values to the WVP and World variables which reside inside the cbPerObj struct:



		struct cbPerObject
		{
			XMMATRIX WVP;
			XMMATRIX World;
			BOOL hasTexture;
			BOOL hasNormMap;
		};

 

 

 

 

Which will finally give the correctly values for the variables within the UpdateSubresource parameters...

		m_cbPerObj.WVP = XMMatrixTranspose(WVP);		
		m_cbPerObj.World = XMMatrixTranspose(m_smilesWorld);	
		m_cbPerObj.hasTexture = true;
		m_cbPerObj.hasNormMap = false;
		deviceContext->UpdateSubresource(cbPerObjectBuffer, 0, NULL, &m_cbPerObj, 0, 0);

 

 

But I'm not sure where I am going wrong, I'm aware theres a few crosses between XMMATRIX and D3DXMATRIX, these can be shortly after my first problem. Can anyone help?

 

EDIT:

 

I put the world, view, and projection matrix into the parameter of the method like so

 

void MD5::RenderBuffers(ID3D11DeviceContext* deviceContext, D3DXMATRIX worldMatrix, D3DXMATRIX viewMatrix, D3DXMATRIX projectionMatrix)

 

It has fixed the problem, I also changed a few XMMatrix and XMMatrixTranspose to it's D3DX Counter Part, which should makes things a bit smoother. Next problem I'm having this error I'm not sure what to make of it, it's asking for a pointer, any ideas?

 


		WVP = worldMatrix * viewMatrix * projectionMatrix;
		m_cbPerObj.WVP = D3DXMatrixTranspose(WVP);		
		m_cbPerObj.World = D3DXMatrixTranspose(m_smilesWorld);

Hi mate, thanks for the quick reply. I've discovered I needed to put them into the parameters (as they need to be passed though to the next class where the camera class can pick it up).

 

I've added a sneaky edit to the end of my original post as I now have a new problem. If you could have a look at my latest problem and give me some insight that'd be highly appreciated. Thank you

I did this and it demands I make &WVP a function.

 

I did this and I obtain a new issue I'm also not sure how to resolve.

It is also asking for a second value for the parameter, const D3DXMATRIX *pM

Any ideas here?

It's only asking for &WVP to be a function because you typed a '(' afterwards - so don't do that smile.png Of course WVP isn't a function, its a matrix object!

 

D3DXMatrixTranspose() does take two functions. The first parameter is the destination of the transpose and the second parameter is the source.

 

If 'T' is the transpose operation, like '+' is the addition operation then:

 

D3DXMatrixTranspose( &WVP, &WVP ); 

 

would mean

 

WVP = T(WVP)

 

 

Are you basically trying to convert a DX11 function into a DX9 one?

I give up ... you need to learn how to program before you attempt stuff like this.

 

D3DXMatrixTranspose() doesn't return a D3DXMATRIX, it returns an HRESULT.

 

So just do this:

 

D3DXMatrixTranspose( &m_cbPerObj.WVP, &WVP );

 

don't add anything else

 

EDIT:

 

Xooch, I don't want to discourage you or be mean to you. However I still feel you need to brush up on basic programming concepts, like functions, function parameters, function return values, pass by value, pass by reference,

 

Good luck to you!
