DX11 Copy unaligned mipmaps of a compressed texture to another compressed texture

Recommended Posts

I'm copying mipmaps of a BC3 compressed texture region to a new (and bigger) BC3 compressed texture with ID3D11DeviceContext::CopySubresourceRegion.

Unfortunately the new texture contains incorrect mipmaps when the width or height of a mipmap level are unaligned to the block size, which is 4 in the case of BC3.

I think this has to do with the virtual and physical size of a mipmap level for block compressed textures: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/bb694531(v=vs.85).aspx#Virtual_Size

There is also a warning:

In summary, be careful to use aligned memory blocks when copying regions that contain block-compressed data. To do this in an application that gets a memory pointer, make sure that the pointer uses the surface pitch to account for the physical memory size.

I don't know how to account for the physical memory size and if that's possible when using ID3D11DeviceContext::CopySubresourceRegion.

Is it possible, and if so, how?

You should be able to provide a null source box, which is equivalent to applying the whole source subresource to the specified offset in the dest (which should be (0, 0, 0) if you're copying the whole mip).

In general, you should always round up the size of the copy to block dimensions, even if the texture doesn't have the logical dimensions to support it. So a 1x1 BC3 mip would be copied as if it was 4x4.

That's what I'm currently doing, my source box has the aligned coordinates corresponding to the mipmap level dimensions of the texture. Even when I provide a null sourcebox I still get artifacts on the edges. I've attached two images showing a copied mipmap level in the new texture. (also for showing the artifacts to @ajmiles). The first one is correct and the second one is incorrect. The first one was built beforehand and the second texture was built at run-time with ID3D11DeviceContext::CopySubresourceRegion.

So to get this straight, you're copying from an unaligned mip to a larger mip? I misinterpreted the question, and assumed you were going from a mip in one texture to a same-sized mip of a different texture.

According to the D3D spec, unaligned textures still have all 4 texels present in the physical data, but as far as I can tell, it doesn't specify what their contents have to be. What you're seeing here appears to be copying the full 4x4 region into the larger texture and seeing the results. I'm not sure what you'd expect to happen in this case - are you expecting black around the border?

I'm copying from an unaligned mip to another mip at a destination in a larger texture. I expect the unaligned mip at the destination in the larger texture to be exactly the same as the original and I expect the border, that exists because of the unalignment, to be transparent (black, Intel GPA texture viewer uses black for transparent). Can I enforce this in any way?

Thanks for your help!

      I am trying to add normal map to my project I have an example of a cube: 
      I have normal in my shader I think. Then I set shader resource view for texture (NOT BUMP)
                  device.ImmediateContext.PixelShader.SetShaderResource(0, textureView);             device.ImmediateContext.Draw(VerticesCount,0); What should I do to set my normal map or how it is done in dx11 generally example c++?

      Imagine that we have a vertex structure that looks like this:
      struct Vertex { XMFLOAT3 position; XMFLOAT4 color; }; The vertex shader looks like this:
      cbuffer MatrixBuffer { matrix world; matrix view; matrix projection; }; struct VertexInput { float4 position : POSITION; float4 color : COLOR; }; struct PixelInput { float4 position : SV_POSITION; float4 color : COLOR; }; PixelInput main(VertexInput input) { PixelInput output; input.position.w = 1.0f; output.position = mul(input.position, world); output.position = mul(output.position, view); output.position = mul(output.position, projection); output.color = input.color; return output; } And the pixel shader looks like this:
      struct PixelInput { float4 position : SV_POSITION; float4 color : COLOR; }; float4 main(PixelInput input) : SV_TARGET { return input.color; } Now let's create a quad consisting of 2 triangles and the vertices A, B, C and D:
      // Vertex A. vertices[0].position = XMFLOAT3(-1.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f); vertices[0].color = XMFLOAT4( 0.5f, 0.5f, 0.5f, 1.0f); // Vertex B. vertices[1].position = XMFLOAT3( 1.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f); vertices[1].color = XMFLOAT4( 0.5f, 0.5f, 0.5f, 1.0f); // Vertex C. vertices[2].position = XMFLOAT3(-1.0f, -1.0f, 0.0f); vertices[2].color = XMFLOAT4( 0.5f, 0.5f, 0.5f, 1.0f); // Vertex D. vertices[3].position = XMFLOAT3( 1.0f, -1.0f, 0.0f); vertices[3].color = XMFLOAT4( 0.5f, 0.5f, 0.5f, 1.0f); // 1st triangle. indices[0] = 0; // Vertex A. indices[1] = 3; // Vertex D. indices[2] = 2; // Vertex C. // 2nd triangle. indices[3] = 0; // Vertex A. indices[4] = 1; // Vertex B. indices[5] = 3; // Vertex D. This will result in a grey quad as shown in the image below. I've outlined the edges in red color to better illustrate the triangles:

      Now imagine that we’d want our quad to have a different color in vertex A:
      // Vertex A. vertices[0].position = XMFLOAT3(-1.0f, 1.0f, 0.0f); vertices[0].color = XMFLOAT4( 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f);
      That works as expected since there’s now an interpolation between the black color in vertex A and the grey color in vertices B, C and D. Let’s revert the previus changes and instead change the color of vertex C:
      // Vertex C. vertices[2].position = XMFLOAT3(-1.0f, -1.0f, 0.0f); vertices[2].color = XMFLOAT4( 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f);
      As you can see, the interpolation is only done half of the way across the first triangle and not across the entire quad. This is because there's no edge between vertex C and vertex B.
      Which brings us to my question:
      I want the interpolation to go across the entire quad and not only across the triangle. So regardless of which vertex we decide to change the color of, the color interpolation should always go across the entire quad. Is there any efficient way of achieving this without adding more vertices and triangles?
      An illustration of what I'm trying to achieve is shown in the image below:

      This is just a very brief explanation of the problems background in case that would make it easier for you to understand the problems roots and maybe help you with finding a better solution to the problem.
      I'm trying to texture a terrain mesh in DirectX11. It's working, but I'm a bit unsatisfied with the result. When changing the terrain texture of a single vertex, the interpolation with the other vertices results in a hexagon shape instead of a squared shape:

      As the red arrows illustrate, I'd like the texture to be interpolated all the way into the corners of the quads.

      Hello, I'm close to releasing my first game to Steam however, my game keeps failing the review process because it keeps crashing. The problem is that the game doesn't crash on my computer, on my laptop, on our family computer, on fathers laptop and i also gave 3 beta keys to people i know and they said the game hasn't crashed.
      Steam reports that the game doesn't crash on startup but few frames after a level has been started.
      What could cause something like this? I have no way of debugging this as the game works fine on every computer i have.
       
      Game is written in C++, using DirectX 11 and DXUT framework.

      I'm trying to get, basically, screenshot (each 1 second, without saving) of Direct3D11 application. Code works fine on my PC(Intel CPU, Radeon GPU) but crashes after few iterations on 2 others (Intel CPU + Intel integrated GPU, Intel CPU + Nvidia GPU).
      void extractBitmap(void* texture) { if (texture) { ID3D11Texture2D* d3dtex = (ID3D11Texture2D*)texture; ID3D11Texture2D* pNewTexture = NULL; D3D11_TEXTURE2D_DESC desc; d3dtex->GetDesc(&desc); desc.BindFlags = 0; desc.CPUAccessFlags = D3D11_CPU_ACCESS_READ | D3D11_CPU_ACCESS_WRITE; desc.Usage = D3D11_USAGE_STAGING; desc.Format = DXGI_FORMAT_R8G8B8A8_UNORM_SRGB; HRESULT hRes = D3D11Device->CreateTexture2D(&desc, NULL, &pNewTexture); if (FAILED(hRes)) { printCon(std::string("CreateTexture2D FAILED:" + format_error(hRes)).c_str()); if (hRes == DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_REMOVED) printCon(std::string("DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_REMOVED -- " + format_error(D3D11Device->GetDeviceRemovedReason())).c_str()); } else { if (pNewTexture) { D3D11DeviceContext->CopyResource(pNewTexture, d3dtex); // Wokring with texture pNewTexture->Release(); } } } return; } D3D11SwapChain->GetBuffer(0, __uuidof(ID3D11Texture2D), reinterpret_cast< void** >(&pBackBuffer)); extractBitmap(pBackBuffer); pBackBuffer->Release(); Crash log:
      CreateTexture2D FAILED:887a0005 DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_REMOVED -- 887a0020 Once I comment out 
      D3D11DeviceContext->CopyResource(pNewTexture, d3dtex); 
      code works fine on all 3 PC's.

      Hi i'm new to this forum and was wondering if there are any good places to start learning directX 11. I bought Frank D Luna's book but it's really outdated and the projects won't even compile. I was excited to start learning from this book because it gives detailed explanations on the functions being used as well as the mathematics. Are there any tutorials / courses /books that are up to date which goes over the 3D math and functions in a detailed manner? Or where does anyone here learn directX 11? I've followed some tutorials from this website http://www.directxtutorial.com/LessonList.aspx?listid=11 which did a nice job but it doesn't explain what's happening with the math so I feel like I'm not actually learning, and it only goes up until color blending. Rasteriks tutorials doesn't go over the functions much at all or the math involved either. I'd really appreciate it if anyone can point me in the right direction, I feel really lost. Thank you
