DX11
Resource Sharing between Directx11 and DirectX9

3 posts in this topic

Hi

I am trying to share resource between directx9 and directx11,having some problems regarding this.

what i am doing is this :-

STEP1: created a shared texture with format D3DFMT_A8R8G8B8 in directx9 and get its shared handle.

STEP2: open the shared texture with directx11 device using the handle.

STEP3: create UAV of texture creating in step3.

but step 3 fails with error

D3D11: ERROR: ID3D11Device::CreateUnorderedAccessView: The format (0x57, B8G8R8A8_UNORM) cannot be used with a Typed Unordered Access View. [ STATE_CREATION ERROR #2097344: CREATEUNORDEREDACCESSVIEW_INVALIDFORMAT ]
D3D11: ERROR: ID3D11Device::CreateUnorderedAccessView: A UnorderedAccessView cannot be created of a Resource that did not specify the D3D11_BIND_UNORDERED_ACCESS BindFlag. [ STATE_CREATION ERROR #2097342: CREATEUNORDEREDACCESSVIEW_INVALIDRESOURCE ]
 

 

please help me here that how can i create UAV of a shared texture which is created in directx9.

//code
//DX9
HRESULT hr = g_pd3dDevice9->CreateTexture( Width , Height , 1 , D3DUSAGE_RENDERTARGET , D3DFMT_A8R8G8B8 ,D3DPOOL_DEFAULT , &g_pTexture , &g_pSharedHandleTex9 );

//DX11
hr = m_pDevice11->OpenSharedResource( g_pSharedHandleTex9 , __uuidof(ID3D11Texture2D) , (void**)&m_pTetxure); //success
hr = m_pDevice11->CreateUnorderedAccessView( m_pTetxure, NULL, &m_pTetxureUAV); //fails
 

 

so,instead of this, I tried to do 

STEP1: create a texture in directx11 format  DXGI_FORMAT_R8G8B8A8_UNORM (with UAV bind flag)

STEP2: created a shared texture with format D3DFMT_A8R8G8B8 in directx9 and get its shared handle.

STEP3: open the shared texture with directx11 device using the handle.

STEP4: CopyResource() from the texture created on step 1 to the shared texture. 

 

but the step4 failed,with error 

D3D11: ERROR: ID3D11DeviceContext::CopyResource: Cannot invoke CopyResource when the Formats of each Resource are not the same or at least castable to each other, unless one format is compressed (DXGI_FORMAT_R9G9B9E5_SHAREDEXP, or DXGI_FORMAT_BC[1,2,3,4,5]_* ) and the source format is similar to the dest according to: BC[1|4] ~= R16G16B16A16|R32G32, BC[2|3|5] ~= R32G32B32A32, R9G9B9E5_SHAREDEXP ~= R32. [ RESOURCE_MANIPULATION ERROR #284: COPYRESOURCE_INVALIDSOURCE ]
 

 

 

I thought that D3DFMT_A8R8G8B8 and DXGI_FORMAT_R8G8B8A8_UNORM should match , just like DXGI_FORMAT_R32_FLOAT and D3DFMT_R32F matches.please help me here.

 

code:

//DX9
HRESULT hr = g_pd3dDevice9->CreateTexture( Width , Height , 1 , D3DUSAGE_RENDERTARGET , D3DFMT_A8R8G8B8 ,D3DPOOL_DEFAULT , &g_pTexture , &g_pSharedHandleTex9 );

//DX11
D3D11_TEXTURE2D_DESC desc;
desc.Width              = width;
desc.Height             = height;
....
desc.Format             = DXGI_FORMAT_R8G8B8A8_UNORM;

hr = m_pDevice11->CreateTexture2D(&desc, NULL, &m_pTetxure); //success
...
...
hr = m_pDevice->OpenSharedResource( g_pSharedHandleTex9 , __uuidof(ID3D11Texture2D) , (void**)&m_pSTexture);
m_pDeviceContext11->CopyResource( m_pSTexture, m_pTetxure ); //fails
 

 

please help me.
thanks.

I haven't ever heard of anyone doing something like this before... I would be interested to hear what use case requires both D3D9 and D3D11 support for the same texture!  Since D3D11 is based on DXGI, I would expect the formats to be considered different from the D3D9 ones even if they are bitwise compatible.  One thing you could try is to open up the appropriate header files and see which format's enumeration values can match one another (if any).

 

If that doesn't work, you could always use the CPU as the sharing point and copy the texture contents directly between the two devices when needed.  I know that isn't the ideal thing, but it would give you a possible workaround if this doesn't work.

The question is more why are you using DX9 as you can talk to DX9 hardware with the DX11 runtime with feature levels it supports. If you are porting a DX9 renderer to DX11 you are better of reading the documentation on DX11 of moving from DX9 to 11.

@Jason Z and NightCreature83

thanks,

actually i have engine in dx9 ,but wanted to process some raw data in gpu and give output to a texture.so i choose compute shader of dx11 and I dont want to change existing source which is written in dx9.

 

however I figured  out the problem as D3DFMT_A8R8G8B8 will match to DXGI_FORMAT_B8G8R8A8_UNORM.however you cant then create UAV from that format.You have to create texture with DXGI_FORMAT_B8G8R8A8_TYPELESS.then create UAV with castable format like  DXGI_FORMAT_R32_UINT and then do your work on shader.


thanks.

      Hi Guys,
      I am revisiting an old DX11 framework I was creating a while back and am scratching my head with a small issue.
      I am trying to set the pixel shader resources and am getting the following error on every loop.
      As you can see in the below code, I am clearing out the shader resources as per the documentation. (Even going overboard and doing it both sides of the main PSSet call). But I just can't get rid of the error. Which results in the render target not being drawn.
      ID3D11ShaderResourceView* srv = { 0 }; d3dContext->PSSetShaderResources(0, 1, &srv); for (std::vector<RenderTarget>::iterator it = rtVector.begin(); it != rtVector.end(); ++it) { if (it->szName == name) { //std::cout << it->srv <<"\r\n"; d3dContext->PSSetShaderResources(0, 1, &it->srv); break; } } d3dContext->PSSetShaderResources(0, 1, &srv);  
      I am storing the RT's in a vector and setting them by name. I have tested the it->srv and am retrieving a valid pointer.
      At this stage I am out of ideas.
      Any help would be greatly appreciated

      hi, guys, how to understand the math used in CDXUTDirectionWidget ::UpdateLightDir 
      the  following code snippet is taken from MS DXTU source code
       
        D3DXMATRIX mInvView;
          D3DXMatrixInverse( &mInvView, NULL, &m_mView );
          mInvView._41 = mInvView._42 = mInvView._43 = 0;
          D3DXMATRIX mLastRotInv;
          D3DXMatrixInverse( &mLastRotInv, NULL, &m_mRotSnapshot );
          D3DXMATRIX mRot = *m_ArcBall.GetRotationMatrix();
          m_mRotSnapshot = mRot;
          // Accumulate the delta of the arcball's rotation in view space.
          // Note that per-frame delta rotations could be problematic over long periods of time.
          m_mRot *= m_mView * mLastRotInv * mRot * mInvView;
          // Since we're accumulating delta rotations, we need to orthonormalize 
          // the matrix to prevent eventual matrix skew
          D3DXVECTOR3* pXBasis = ( D3DXVECTOR3* )&m_mRot._11;
          D3DXVECTOR3* pYBasis = ( D3DXVECTOR3* )&m_mRot._21;
          D3DXVECTOR3* pZBasis = ( D3DXVECTOR3* )&m_mRot._31;
          D3DXVec3Normalize( pXBasis, pXBasis );
          D3DXVec3Cross( pYBasis, pZBasis, pXBasis );
          D3DXVec3Normalize( pYBasis, pYBasis );
          D3DXVec3Cross( pZBasis, pXBasis, pYBasis );

      Hi,
      I have a surface mesh and I want to use a cone to cut a hole on the surface mesh.
      Anybody know a fast method to calculate the intersected boundary of these two geometries?
       
      Thanks.

      Hi, I tried searching for this but either I failed or couldn't find anything. I know there's D11/D12 interop and there are extensions for GL/D11 (though not very efficient). I was wondering if there's any Vulkan/D11 or Vulkan/D12 interop?
      Thanks!

      Hi Guys,
      I am just wondering if it is possible to acquire the address of the backbuffer if an API (based on DX11) only exposes the 'device' and 'context' pointers?
      Any advice would be greatly appreciated
