A sampled float value in a Texture2D is unexpectedly 1.0 higher.

Hi, I'm rendering to a Texture2D via a pixelshader and everything is working correctly.
The input.depth value being returned from it is 0.045904520.

Texture2D DepthMap : register(t0);
SamplerState DepthMapSampler : register(s0);

float4 txDepthMapPixelShader(in PixelShaderInput_DepthMap input) : SV_TARGET
  return float4(input.depth, 0, 0, 0); <-- 0.045904520

When I sample the texture in another pixel shader the depth value has changed to 1.045904520; becoming 1.0 higher.

float4 txPixelShader(in PixelShaderInput input) : SV_TARGET
    float2 depthTexCoords = 0.5 * input.vertexPosition2.xy / input.vertexPosition2.w + float2(0.5, 0.5);
    depthTexCoords.y = 1.0f - depthTexCoords.y; // Inverse - good for debugging.

    float depth = DepthMap.Sample(DepthMapSampler, depthTexCoords.xy).r; <-- 1.045904520

Now I can delete this value by 1.0 to get the effect I desire so it's not really a problem; but I'm curious as to where this additional 1.0 has originated from?
Has anyone got any ideas?  Thank you in advance.

The data structures I use are as follows.

D3D11_TEXTURE2D_DESC depthTextureDesc;
::ZeroMemory(&depthTextureDesc, sizeof(D3D11_TEXTURE2D_DESC));
depthTextureDesc.Width = _windowWidth;
depthTextureDesc.Height = _windowHeight;
depthTextureDesc.MipLevels = 1;
depthTextureDesc.ArraySize = 1;
depthTextureDesc.Format = DXGI_FORMAT_R32G32B32A32_FLOAT;
depthTextureDesc.SampleDesc.Count = 1;
depthTextureDesc.Usage = D3D11_USAGE_DEFAULT;
depthTextureDesc.CPUAccessFlags = 0;
depthTextureDesc.MiscFlags = 0;

hr = _device->CreateTexture2D(&depthTextureDesc, NULL, &_depthDepthStencil);

D3D11_SHADER_RESOURCE_VIEW_DESC shaderResourceViewDesc;
::ZeroMemory(&shaderResourceViewDesc, sizeof(D3D11_SHADER_RESOURCE_VIEW_DESC));
shaderResourceViewDesc.Format = DXGI_FORMAT_R32G32B32A32_FLOAT;
shaderResourceViewDesc.ViewDimension = D3D11_SRV_DIMENSION_TEXTURE2D;
shaderResourceViewDesc.Texture2D.MostDetailedMip = 0;
shaderResourceViewDesc.Texture2D.MipLevels = 1;

hr = _device->CreateShaderResourceView(_depthDepthStencil, &shaderResourceViewDesc, &_depthResourceView);

D3D11_RENDER_TARGET_VIEW_DESC depthTargetViewDesc;
::ZeroMemory(&depthTargetViewDesc, sizeof(D3D11_RENDER_TARGET_VIEW_DESC));
depthTargetViewDesc.Format = shaderResourceViewDesc.Format;
depthTargetViewDesc.ViewDimension = D3D11_RTV_DIMENSION_TEXTURE2D;
depthTargetViewDesc.Texture2D.MipSlice = 0;

hr = _device->CreateRenderTargetView(_depthDepthStencil, &depthTargetViewDesc, &_depthRenderTargetView);

D3D11_RASTERIZER_DESC depthRenderStateDesc;
::ZeroMemory(&depthRenderStateDesc, sizeof(D3D11_RASTERIZER_DESC));
depthRenderStateDesc.CullMode = D3D11_CULL_FRONT;
depthRenderStateDesc.FillMode = D3D11_FILL_SOLID;
depthRenderStateDesc.DepthClipEnable = true;

hr = _device->CreateRasterizerState(&depthRenderStateDesc, &_depthRasterState);

Do you have any blend state enabled?  For example, even if you output a depth value, the Output Merger can still modify the value before it gets written to a render target.  Can you double check that the blending is disabled?

Hi Jason,  Thank you for the reply.

Yes I believe blending was off..


D3D11_BLEND_DESC desc;
::ZeroMemory(&desc, sizeof(D3D11_BLEND_DESC));
desc.RenderTarget[0].BlendEnable = FALSE;
