Textures in Directx 11

Recommended Posts

Im in DirectX 11 using the D3DX11CreateShaderResourceViewFromFile for textures. I have to rotate texture file 180 and flip horizontal in Mspaint for the texture to fit on the object.  SO when I have a .obj object with text, it will be backwards like in the image. I have to rotate and flip with all objects that have textures.Does anyone know how to fix the issue?

Right hand to Left hand conversion

By default Maya 2011 is a right handed coordinate system and exports the .obj file data in right hand coordinates. To convert that data into a left handed system which DirectX 11 is by default you have to do the following:

1. Invert the Z coordinate vertices. In the code you will see it do this: vertices[vertexIndex].z = vertices[vertexIndex].z * -1.0f;

2. Invert the TV texture coordinate. In the code you will see it do this: texcoords[texcoordIndex].y = 1.0f - texcoords[texcoordIndex].y;

3. Invert the NZ normal vertex. In the code you will see it do this: normals[normalIndex].z = normals[normalIndex].z * -1.0f;

4. Convert the drawing order from counter clockwise to clockwise. In the code I simply read in the indexes in reverse order instead of re-organizing it after the fact:

fin >> faces[faceIndex].vIndex3 >> input2 >> faces[faceIndex].tIndex3 >> input2 >> faces[faceIndex].nIndex3; fin >> faces[faceIndex].vIndex2 >> input2 >> faces[faceIndex].tIndex2 >> input2 >> faces[faceIndex].nIndex2; fin >> faces[faceIndex].vIndex1 >> input2 >> faces[faceIndex].tIndex1 >> input2 >> faces[faceIndex].nIndex1;

With those four steps complete the model data will be ready for DirectX 11 to render correctly.

       I'm trying to code Rayleigh part of Nishita's model (Display Method of the Sky Color Taking into Account Multiple Scattering). I get black screen no colors. Can anyone find the issue for me?
      #define InnerRadius 6320000 #define OutterRadius 6420000 #define PI 3.141592653 #define Isteps 20 #define Ksteps 10 static float3 RayleighCoeffs = float3(6.55e-6, 1.73e-5, 2.30e-5); RWTexture2D<float4> SkyColors : register (u0); cbuffer CSCONSTANTBUF : register( b0 ) { float fHeight; float3 vSunDir; } float Density(float Height) { return exp(-Height/8340); } float RaySphereIntersection(float3 RayOrigin, float3 RayDirection, float3 SphereOrigin, float Radius) { float t1, t0; float3 L = SphereOrigin - RayOrigin; float tCA = dot(L, RayDirection); if (tCA < 0) return -1; float lenL = length(L); float D2 = (lenL*lenL) - (tCA*tCA); float Radius2 = (Radius*Radius); if (D2<=Radius2) { float tHC = sqrt(Radius2 - D2); t0 = tCA-tHC; t1 = tCA+tHC; } else return -1; return t1; } float RayleighPhaseFunction(float cosTheta) { return ((3/(16*PI))*(1+cosTheta*cosTheta)); } float OpticalDepth(float3 StartPosition, float3 EndPosition) { float3 Direction = normalize(EndPosition - StartPosition); float RayLength = RaySphereIntersection(StartPosition, Direction, float3(0, 0, 0), OutterRadius); float SampleLength = RayLength / Isteps; float3 tmpPos = StartPosition + 0.5 * SampleLength * Direction; float tmp; for (int i=0; i<Isteps; i++) { tmp += Density(length(tmpPos)-InnerRadius); tmpPos += SampleLength * Direction; } return tmp*SampleLength; } static float fExposure = -2; float3 HDR( float3 LDR) { return 1.0f - exp( fExposure * LDR ); } [numthreads(32, 32, 1)] //disptach 8, 8, 1 it's 256 by 256 image void ComputeSky(uint3 DTID : SV_DispatchThreadID) { float X = ((2 * DTID.x) / 255) - 1; float Y = 1 - ((2 * DTID.y) / 255); float r = sqrt(((X*X)+(Y*Y))); float Theta = r * (PI); float Phi = atan2(Y, X); static float3 Eye = float3(0, 10, 0); float ViewOD = 0, SunOD = 0, tmpDensity = 0; float3 Attenuation = 0, tmp = 0, Irgb = 0; //if (r<=1) { float3 ViewDir = normalize(float3(sin(Theta)*cos(Phi), cos(Theta),sin(Theta)*sin(Phi) )); float ViewRayLength = RaySphereIntersection(Eye, ViewDir, float3(0, 0, 0), OutterRadius); float SampleLength = ViewRayLength / Ksteps; //vSunDir = normalize(vSunDir); float cosTheta = dot(normalize(vSunDir), ViewDir); float3 tmpPos = Eye + 0.5 * SampleLength * ViewDir; for(int k=0; k<Ksteps; k++) { float SunRayLength = RaySphereIntersection(tmpPos, vSunDir, float3(0, 0, 0), OutterRadius); float3 TopAtmosphere = tmpPos + SunRayLength*vSunDir; ViewOD = OpticalDepth(Eye, tmpPos); SunOD = OpticalDepth(tmpPos, TopAtmosphere); tmpDensity = Density(length(tmpPos)-InnerRadius); Attenuation = exp(-RayleighCoeffs*(ViewOD+SunOD)); tmp += tmpDensity*Attenuation; tmpPos += SampleLength * ViewDir; } Irgb = RayleighCoeffs*RayleighPhaseFunction(cosTheta)*tmp*SampleLength; SkyColors[DTID.xy] = float4(Irgb, 1); } }

      I'm running to some issues with a random number generator that I am trying to create to test what type of attack an enemy will use (weapon or magic) and whether or not they land a hit with the attack.  What I want it to do is generate a random number number for the type of attack, then generate a separate random number for if the hit lands or not.  What actually happens is it is generating a different number each iteration, but the same number for each item.  So for instance, if the random number is a 6, both attack type and if it hit is a 6, if it's a 7 both are 7, etc.   I'm almost certain the issue is within how I'm using time in conjunction with this, but everything else I've found hasn't been helpful.  I've tried doing one function, but had the same issue and switched to two functions in the hopes that would help, but it didn't and now I'm not quite sure what to try next.
      Here is the code I have so far:
      // Example program #include <iostream> #include <string> #include <stdlib.h> #include <ctime> using namespace std; int getRandAttack(); int getRandHit(); int main() { int randomAttack; int randomHit; randomAttack = getRandAttack(); cout<<randomAttack<<endl; //used to ensure same number isn't given every time //decides what happens based on what number was given if (randomAttack <= 5) { cout<<"Enemy used a weapon!"<<endl; }else if (randomAttack > 5) { cout<<"Enemy used magic!"<<endl; } randomHit = getRandHit(); cout<<randomHit<<endl; //used to ensure same number isn't given every time //decides what happens based on what number was given if (randomHit <= 5) { cout<<"The attack missed!"; }else if (randomHit > 5) { cout<<"The attack hit!"; } } //gets random number to determine enemy attack type int getRandAttack () { int random; srand (time(NULL)); random = rand() % 10 + 1; return random; } //gets random number to determine if enemy attack lands a hit int getRandHit () { int random; srand (time(NULL)); random = rand() % 10 + 1; return random; } I know there is an easier way to do this that involves classes, but the online compiler I'm messing around with right now doesn't seem to support extra files, so I'm making functions work instead.  Any help and lead in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

      I have a gaming framework with an renderer interface. Those support DX8, DX9 and latest, DX11. Both DX8 and DX9 use fixed function pipeline, while DX11 obviously uses shaders. I've got most of the parts working fine, as in I can switch renderers and notice almost no difference. The most advanced features are 2 directional lights with a single texture  
      My last problem is lighting; albeit there's documentation on the D3D lighting model I still can't get the behaviour right. My mistake shows most prominently in the dark side opposite the lights. I'm pretty sure the ambient calculation is off, but that one's supposed to be the most simple one and should be hard to get wrong.
      Interestingly I've been searching high and low, and have yet to find a resource that shows how to build a HLSL shader where diffuse, ambient and specular are used together with material properties. I've got various shaders for all the variations I'm supporting. I stepped through the shader with the graphics debugger, but the calculation seems to do what I want. I'm just not sure the formula is correct.
      This one should suffice though, it's doing two directional lights, texture modulated with vertex color and a normal. Maybe someone can spot one (or more mistakes). And yes, this is in the vertex shader and I'm aware lighting will be as "bad" as in fixed function; that's my goal currently.
