OpenGL Changing Depth in HLSL

Recommended Posts

Hello my friends!
I am trying to implement some kind of this...
http://outerra.blogspot.pt/2012/11/maximizing-depth-buffer-range-and.html

 

Basically my problem is just changing the depth inside PixelShader.

When I change depth field, nothing happens, and I don't know why...

here is my .fx file:

float4x4 World;
float4x4 View;
float4x4 Projection;
float4x4 WorldInverseTranspose;
float4 AmbientColor;
float4 DiffuseColor = float4(1, 1, 1, 1);
float InvLogFar; 
float Radius;
 
float3 LightDirection = float3(1, 0, 0);
 
float DiffuseIntensity = 1.0;
 
float Shininess = 200;
float4 SpecularColor = float4(1, 1, 1, 1);
float SpecularIntensity = 1;
float3 ViewVector = float3(1, 0, 0);
 
 
 
texture ModelTexture;
sampler2D textureSampler = sampler_state {
    Texture = (ModelTexture);
    MinFilter = Linear;
    MagFilter = Linear;
    AddressU = Clamp;
    AddressV = Clamp;
};
 
texture ModelTexture2;
sampler2D textureSampler2 = sampler_state {
    Texture = (ModelTexture2);
    MinFilter = Linear;
    MagFilter = Linear;
    AddressU = Clamp;
    AddressV = Clamp;
};
 
 
 
struct VS_INPUT
{
    float4 Position : POSITION;
    float4 Normal : NORMAL;
    float2 TextureCoordinate : TEXCOORD;
};
 
struct VS_OUTPUT
{
    float4 ClipPosition : POSITION;
    float3 Normal : NORMAL;
float4 Position : TEXCOORD0;
    float2 TextureCoordinate : TEXCOORD1;
float3 ExactPos : TEXCOORD2;
 
};
 
struct PS_OUTPUT {
float4 Color0 : COLOR0;
float Depth : DEPTH;
};
 
 
VS_OUTPUT VS_Function(VS_INPUT input)
{
    VS_OUTPUT output;
 
 
     // Change the position vector to be 4 units for proper matrix calculations.
    input.Position.w = 1.0f;
    // Calculate the position of the vertex against the world, view, and projection matrices.
    output.ClipPosition = mul(input.Position, World);
    output.ClipPosition = mul(output.ClipPosition, View);
    output.ClipPosition = mul(output.ClipPosition, Projection);
 
 
output.Normal = normalize(mul(input.Normal, WorldInverseTranspose));
output.TextureCoordinate = input.TextureCoordinate;
output.ExactPos = input.Position;
output.Position = output.ClipPosition;
    return output;
}
 
PS_OUTPUT PS_Function(VS_OUTPUT input) 
{
    float3 light = normalize(LightDirection);
    float3 normal = normalize(input.Normal);
    float3 r = normalize(2 * dot(light, normal) * normal - light);
    float3 v = normalize(mul(normalize(ViewVector), World));
    float dotProduct = dot(r, v);
 
    float4 specular = SpecularIntensity * SpecularColor * max(pow(abs(dotProduct), Shininess), 0);
 
    
float4 textureColor = float4(1.0,1.0,1.0,1.0);
 
if(dotProduct<0.1)
dotProduct = 0.1;
 
 
PS_OUTPUT output;
output.Color0 = dotProduct*saturate(textureColor + AmbientColor + specular);
output.Color0.a = 1.0;
 
output.Depth = input.Position.z / input.Position.w;
output.Depth = log(output.Depth+1)* InvLogFar; 
// InvLogFar = 1.0/log(Far + 1.0)
 
    return output;
}
 
 
 
technique Textured
{
    pass Pass1
    {
        VertexShader = compile vs_3_0 VS_Function();
        PixelShader = compile ps_3_0 PS_Function();
    }
}


Please if you help me, I would be very happy :-)

Also my main goal is to show a path composed by real GPS Captured Points and Satellites, so I need a real world size, thats why I am applying a logarithm function to depth...

 

 

PS: I have already implemented in  OpenGL and it worked, I don't know why it's not working with XNA...

Problem solved!

If you have the same problem the code is here (with multitexturing also...)

float Far;
float Radius;
 
float3 LightDirection = float3(0, 0, -1);
 
float DiffuseIntensity = 1.0;
 
float Shininess = 200;
float4 SpecularColor = float4(0.3, 0.3, 0.3, 1);
float SpecularIntensity = 1;
float3 ViewVector;
 
 
Texture2D Texture0; sampler2D Sampler0 = sampler_state { Texture = (Texture0);  MinFilter = Linear; MagFilter = Linear;  AddressU = Wrap; AddressV = Wrap;};
Texture2D Texture1; sampler2D Sampler1 = sampler_state { Texture = (Texture1);  MinFilter = Linear; MagFilter = Linear;  AddressU = Wrap; AddressV = Wrap;};
Texture2D Texture2; sampler2D Sampler2 = sampler_state { Texture = (Texture2);  MinFilter = Linear; MagFilter = Linear;  AddressU = Wrap; AddressV = Wrap;};
Texture2D Texture3; sampler2D Sampler3 = sampler_state { Texture = (Texture3);  MinFilter = Linear; MagFilter = Linear;  AddressU = Wrap; AddressV = Wrap;};

output.Color0.a = 1.0;
 
output.Depth0 = log(input.Position2D.z+1.0)/log(input.Position2D.w*Far+1);
// output.Color0 = float4(output.Depth0,output.Depth0,output.Depth0,1.0);
    return output;
}
 
 
 
technique Textured
{
    pass Pass1
    {
        VertexShader = compile vs_3_0 VS_Function();
        PixelShader = compile ps_3_0 PS_Function();
    }
}

 

and the result...

      Hi, New here. 
      I need some help. My fiance and I like to play this mobile game online that goes by real time. Her and I are always working but when we have free time we like to play this game. We don't always got time throughout the day to Queue Buildings, troops, Upgrades....etc.... 
      I was told to look into DLL Injection and OpenGL/DirectX Hooking. Is this true? Is this what I need to learn? 
      How do I read the Android files, or modify the files, or get the in-game tags/variables for the game I want? 
      Any assistance on this would be most appreciated. I been everywhere and seems no one knows or is to lazy to help me out. It would be nice to have assistance for once. I don't know what I need to learn. 
      So links of topics I need to learn within the comment section would be SOOOOO.....Helpful. Anything to just get me started. 
      Thanks, 
      Dejay Hextrix

      Hi all,
      First time poster here, although I've been reading posts here for quite a while. This place has been invaluable for learning graphics programming -- thanks for a great resource!
      Right now, I'm working on a graphics abstraction layer for .NET which supports D3D11, Vulkan, and OpenGL at the moment. I have implemented most of my planned features already, and things are working well. Some remaining features that I am planning are Compute Shaders, and some flavor of read-write shader resources. At the moment, my shaders can just get simple read-only access to a uniform (or constant) buffer, a texture, or a sampler. Unfortunately, I'm having a tough time grasping the distinctions between all of the different kinds of read-write resources that are available. In D3D alone, there seem to be 5 or 6 different kinds of resources with similar but different characteristics. On top of that, I get the impression that some of them are more or less "obsoleted" by the newer kinds, and don't have much of a place in modern code. There seem to be a few pivots:
      The data source/destination (buffer or texture) Read-write or read-only Structured or unstructured (?) Ordered vs unordered (?) These are just my observations based on a lot of MSDN and OpenGL doc reading. For my library, I'm not interested in exposing every possibility to the user -- just trying to find a good "middle-ground" that can be represented cleanly across API's which is good enough for common scenarios.
      Can anyone give a sort of "overview" of the different options, and perhaps compare/contrast the concepts between Direct3D, OpenGL, and Vulkan? I'd also be very interested in hearing how other folks have abstracted these concepts in their libraries.

      I recently started getting into graphics programming (2nd try, first try was many years ago) and I'm working on a 3d rendering engine which I hope to be able to make a 3D game with sooner or later. I have plenty of C++ experience, but not a lot when it comes to graphics, and while it's definitely going much better this time, I'm having trouble figuring out how assets are usually handled by engines.
      I'm not having trouble with handling the GPU resources, but more so with how the resources should be defined and used in the system (materials, models, etc).
      This is my plan now, I've implemented most of it except for the XML parts and factories and those are the ones I'm not sure of at all:
      I have these classes:
      For GPU resources:
      Geometry: holds and manages everything needed to render a geometry: VAO, VBO, EBO. Texture: holds and manages a texture which is loaded into the GPU. Shader: holds and manages a shader which is loaded into the GPU. For assets relying on GPU resources:
      Material: holds a shader resource, multiple texture resources, as well as uniform settings. Mesh: holds a geometry and a material. Model: holds multiple meshes, possibly in a tree structure to more easily support skinning later on? For handling GPU resources:
      ResourceCache<T>: T can be any resource loaded into the GPU. It owns these resources and only hands out handles to them on request (currently string identifiers are used when requesting handles, but all resources are stored in a vector and each handle only contains resource's index in that vector) Resource<T>: The handles given out from ResourceCache. The handles are reference counted and to get the underlying resource you simply deference like with pointers (*handle).  
      And my plan is to define everything into these XML documents to abstract away files:
      Resources.xml for ref-counted GPU resources (geometry, shaders, textures) Resources are assigned names/ids and resource files, and possibly some attributes (what vertex attributes does this geometry have? what vertex attributes does this shader expect? what uniforms does this shader use? and so on) Are reference counted using ResourceCache<T> Assets.xml for assets using the GPU resources (materials, meshes, models) Assets are not reference counted, but they hold handles to ref-counted resources. References the resources defined in Resources.xml by names/ids. The XMLs are loaded into some structure in memory which is then used for loading the resources/assets using factory classes:
      Factory classes for resources:
      For example, a texture factory could contain the texture definitions from the XML containing data about textures in the game, as well as a cache containing all loaded textures. This means it has mappings from each name/id to a file and when asked to load a texture with a name/id, it can look up its path and use a "BinaryLoader" to either load the file and create the resource directly, or asynchronously load the file's data into a queue which then can be read from later to create the resources synchronously in the GL context. These factories only return handles.
      Factory classes for assets:
      Much like for resources, these classes contain the definitions for the assets they can load. For example, with the definition the MaterialFactory will know which shader, textures and possibly uniform a certain material has, and with the help of TextureFactory and ShaderFactory, it can retrieve handles to the resources it needs (Shader + Textures), setup itself from XML data (uniform values), and return a created instance of requested material. These factories return actual instances, not handles (but the instances contain handles).
       
       
      Is this a good or commonly used approach? Is this going to bite me in the ass later on? Are there other more preferable approaches? Is this outside of the scope of a 3d renderer and should be on the engine side? I'd love to receive and kind of advice or suggestions!
      Thanks!

      I 'm learning how to create game by using opengl with c/c++ coding, so here is my fist game. In video description also have game contain in Dropbox. May be I will make it better in future.
      Thanks.

      So I've recently started learning some GLSL and now I'm toying with a POM shader. I'm trying to optimize it and notice that it starts having issues at high texture sizes, especially with self-shadowing.
      Now I know POM is expensive either way, but would pulling the heightmap out of the normalmap alpha channel and in it's own 8bit texture make doing all those dozens of texture fetches more cheap? Or is everything in the cache aligned to 32bit anyway? I haven't implemented texture compression yet, I think that would help? But regardless, should there be a performance boost from decoupling the heightmap? I could also keep it in a lower resolution than the normalmap if that would improve performance.
      Any help is much appreciated, please keep in mind I'm somewhat of a newbie. Thanks!
