I have a problem with creation of depthstencil view.

When creating DXGI_SWAP_CHAIN_DESC, I set the following: 

sd.SampleDesc.Count = 4;
sd.SampleDesc.Quality = m_4xMSaaQuality - 1;

After that, if I put the following:

D3D11_TEXTURE2D_DESC depthStencilDesc;
depthStencilDesc.SampleDesc.Count =  4;
depthStencilDesc.SampleDesc.Quality = m_4xMSaaQuality - 1;

 CreateDepthStencilView() fails, and HRESULT is E_INVALIDARG One or more arguments are invalid.



If I set SampleDesc.Count = 1 and SampleDesc.Quality = 0 in both places everything works properly.


Also, some code that might matter:


Microsoft::WRL:: ComPtr<ID3D11Texture2D> mDepthStencilBufer;
HRESULT dsHR = m_d3dDevice->CreateTexture2D(&depthStencilDesc, 0, mDepthStencilBufer.GetAddressOf());
dsHR = m_d3dDevice->CreateDepthStencilView(mDepthStencilBufer.Get(), &depthStencilViewDescription, m_depthStencilView.GetAddressOf());

Thanks in advance for help!

You probably wanted:


when using Multisampling counts > 1.


Thanks a lot!
It's working now.
