Hi, 

Can anyone tell me how to debug an fx file ? I have tried using gpu perfstudio, PIX and visual studio ultimate 2013 but all of them gives me an error when I try to debug..

Be a little bit more specific, what kind of error do you get? Which version of DirectX, 9 or newer?

 

For visual studio ultimate 2013, alt+f5 will start application in diagnstic mode, there you press print screen (not sure if was prt sc), close application and you get a lot of stuff. You either need to go through even list to find draw call you want to debug or pick pixel and check it's history.

 

Note:

What I wrote here is from memory, I mostly use built in profiler instinctively :) For more accurate information, check this link:

I used that graphics debugger and most recently I have noticed one thing in the output window. This message is kept showing the whole time : 

 

1. ID3D11DeviceContext::DrawIndexed: Input Assembler - Vertex Shader linkage error: Signatures between stages are incompatible. The input stage requires Semantic/Index (WEIGHTS,0) as input, but it is not provided by the output stage.

2. ID3D11DeviceContext::DrawIndexed: Input Assembler - Vertex Shader linkage error: Signatures between stages are incompatible. The input stage requires Semantic/Index (BONEINDICES,0) as input, but it is not provided by the output stage.

 

My vertex structure is :

 

struct PosNormalTexSkin
	{
		XMFLOAT3 Pos;
		XMFLOAT3 Normal;
		XMFLOAT2 Tex;
		float Weights[3];
		UINT BoneIndices[4];
	};

And my input layout is :

 

const D3D11_INPUT_ELEMENT_DESC InputLayoutDesc::PosNormalTexSkin[5] = 
{
	{"POSITION",     0, DXGI_FORMAT_R32G32B32_FLOAT, 0, 0,  D3D11_INPUT_PER_VERTEX_DATA, 0},
	{"NORMAL",       0, DXGI_FORMAT_R32G32B32_FLOAT, 0, 12, D3D11_INPUT_PER_VERTEX_DATA, 0},
	{"TEXCOORD",     0, DXGI_FORMAT_R32G32_FLOAT,    0, 24, D3D11_INPUT_PER_VERTEX_DATA, 0},
	{"WEIGHTS",      0, DXGI_FORMAT_R32G32B32_FLOAT, 0, 32, D3D11_INPUT_PER_VERTEX_DATA, 0},
	{"BONEINDICES",  0, DXGI_FORMAT_R32G32B32A32_UINT, 0, 44, D3D11_INPUT_PER_VERTEX_DATA, 0}
};
And my skinning code is :

I guess the problem might lie in the SkinnedVertexIn. 

 

And one more thing : If I try to debug the shader it says failed to generate shader trace and therefore it is unable to debug shader.

 

Edit : I cannot see the Pixel shader stage in the graphics pipline .

These are errors, the draw call fails. I'm not surprised the graphics debugger can't work with that. I still use PIX, but I cannot remember how it reacts in such a case, since I usually fire it up only after I have fixed such pipeline errors.

Looks pretty obvious to me. You are either binding the wrong input layout or the input layout creation is at fault.

1. ID3D11DeviceContext::DrawIndexed: Input Assembler - Vertex Shader linkage error: Signatures between stages are incompatible. The input stage requires Semantic/Index (WEIGHTS,0) as input, but it is not provided by the output stage.

2. ID3D11DeviceContext::DrawIndexed: Input Assembler - Vertex Shader linkage error: Signatures between stages are incompatible. The input stage requires Semantic/Index (BONEINDICES,0) as input, but it is not provided by the output stage.

 

Since you have one vertex shader that offers those two semantics (SkinnedVS) and one that does not (VS) it is my quess that you are drawing with the wrong technique, one that uses VS. To solve this error, you need to ensure that input layout always matches VS input elements.

I am using the "Light1Skinned" technique as follows :
 

technique11 Light1Skinned
{
	pass P0
	{
		SetVertexShader(CompileShader(vs_5_0, SkinnedVS()));
		SetGeometryShader(NULL);
		SetPixelShader(CompileShader(ps_5_0, PS(1, false, false, false)));
	}
}

But when I use the Light1 Technique all is perfect:
 

technique11 Light1
{
	pass P0
	{
		SetVertexShader(CompileShader(vs_5_0, VS()));
		SetGeometryShader(NULL);
		SetPixelShader(CompileShader(ps_5_0, PS(1, false, false, false)));
	}
}

I cannot get the PIX to work with directx 11 and windows 8.

Ok so I checked the input layout again and found this problem :

 

Effects::SkinFX->Light1Tech->GetPassByIndex(0)->GetDesc(&passDesc);
	HR(device->CreateInputLayout(InputLayoutDesc::PosNormalTexSkin, 5, passDesc.pIAInputSignature, 
		passDesc.IAInputSignatureSize, &PosNormalTexSkin));

Used this instead of this:

 

Effects::SkinFX->Light1SkinnedTech->GetPassByIndex(0)->GetDesc(&passDesc);
	HR(device->CreateInputLayout(InputLayoutDesc::PosNormalTexSkin, 5, passDesc.pIAInputSignature, 
		passDesc.IAInputSignatureSize, &PosNormalTexSkin));

The error line seems to be gone. But the problem still persists. The bones and weights are correctly present in the vertex buffer. But I still cannot see the model on the screen. I am trying to debug the shader . But it is giving me the same error : 

**Graphics Diagnostics failed to build shader trace. Therefore, it is unable to debug shader.**

 

What sort of problem is this ?

One thing I still can see that in the graphics pipline input assembler looks ok. But the vertex shader is blank and there is no pixel shader stage. And output merger stage is transparent.

Hmmm, quite stubborn dry.png
 
Can't help you with the graphics debugger, still using PIX here. I wonder if that thing works at all: Ever successfully tried a simpler sample ? Preferably one not using the effect framework ? I remember AMD PerfStudio never wanted to work with the D3D9 effects with my C#/SlimDX stuff or something.

If you don't get it to work that leaves only manual debugging. Unfortunately it can get quite involved:
  • First double check you don't have other errors/warnings lurking.
  • Reading back data with CopyResource to a staging buffer, then map and read back to CPU, to check if shader constants are set correctly (bone transformations,...)
  • One can actually grab the data after the vertex shader with a special geometry shader (so-called stream output). This is not that easy to setup, though.
  • Alternatively, setup special VS and PS (and vertex buffers) to visualize vertex data or shader constants (e.g. output weights as colored pixels).
  • Simplify the thing. Use a Mesh with one triangle, one Bone/Weight. It sounds silly, but as soon you have some output you can usually work from there more easily.
  • Since it could be a bug in the effect framework, try without. Last resort I'd say, because doing it manually even more can go wrong. Though: I still use it myself and I don't remember a related problem. But it is obsolete and could behave buggy in a new runtime/OS I guess.
I'm just brainstorming here, sorry, no idea what could be wrong. Also read the recent thread about graphics debugging.

Edit: Could you show all relevant code that goes into that draw call, please ? Or even put the whole project on github or something ? Maybe we spot something.

I tried PIX. But does it work with Directx 11 ?

Silly question ... But how to do that ? I am seeing some constant buffers in the VSSetShader(). But couldn't make much from it coz the variable names in the shader files are not mentioned there. Though I can definetely see that one constant buffer object is just initialized to 0. I mean every variable inside it is 0. I have only 2 constant buffers here.

 

Again, my vertex shader stays blank .And if I try to debug it throws an error. So, my guess the input assembler fails to link with the shader at all, If I use the SkinnedVS() in the shader code. But if I use the VS() it works and I can debug and the vertex shader shows a wireframed model.
