  1. [quote name='Geoffrey' timestamp='1334316776' post='4930922'] Glad I could help. By the way, R32G32B32A32_FLOAT is a huge format and probably isn't widely supported - I suggest you use something a bit lighter like A8R8G8B8. [/quote] hmm ok, will R8G8B8A8 be able to hold all information that a normal .png image has without any loss in quality?
  2. [quote name='Geoffrey' timestamp='1334271973' post='4930742'] What texture format is the glow effect stored in? [/quote] Ah! I was using DXGI_FORMAT_BC1_UNORM, I changed it to DXGI_FORMAT_R32G32B32A32_FLOAT and now it works great, Thanks!
  3. Hi. Me and a few friends are making a game and we're having some problem with the alpha / blending. What we're getting: [img][/img] As you can see the glow-effect looks like shit. Here's the image for the glow-effect: [img][/img] As you can see the alpha isnt correctly blending the parts where the alpha is pretty low in the image. The images are drawn back-to-front (there's 3 of them, the base texture, the text, and the glow), and they are drawn by expanding a quad in the GS. Shader-code: [code]Texture2D tex2D; SamplerState linearSampler { Filter = MIN_MAG_MIP_LINEAR; AddressU = Wrap; AddressV = Wrap; }; BlendState SrcAlphaBlendingAdd { BlendEnable[0] = TRUE; SrcBlend = SRC_ALPHA; DestBlend = INV_SRC_ALPHA; BlendOp = ADD; SrcBlendAlpha = ZERO; DestBlendAlpha = ZERO; BlendOpAlpha = ADD; RenderTargetWriteMask[0] = 0x0F; }; DepthStencilState DisableDepthWrite { DepthEnable = FALSE; DepthWriteMask = ZERO; }; cbuffer EveryFrame { float posx; float posy; float dimx; float dimy; } RasterizerState NoCulling { CullMode = NONE; }; VSIn VSScene(VSIn input) { return input; } [maxvertexcount(4)] void GS( point VSIn input[1], inout TriangleStream<PSSceneIn> triStream ) { PSSceneIn output; output.opacity = 1.0f; //create sprite quad float4 basepos = float4(posx, posy, 0, 1); //bottom left output.Pos = basepos + float4(0, dimy, 0, 0); output.tex = float2(0,1); triStream.Append(output); //bottom right output.Pos = basepos + float4(dimx, dimy, 0, 0); output.tex = float2(1,1); triStream.Append(output); //top left output.Pos = basepos; output.tex = float2(0,0); triStream.Append(output); //top right output.Pos = basepos + float4(dimx, 0, 0, 0); output.tex = float2(1,0); triStream.Append(output); } float4 PSScene(PSSceneIn input) : SV_Target { float4 tex = tex2D.Sample(linearSampler, input.tex); return tex; } technique11 BasicTech { pass p0 { // Set VS, GS, and PS SetVertexShader( CompileShader( vs_4_0, VSScene() ) ); SetGeometryShader( CompileShader( gs_4_0, GS() ) ); SetPixelShader( CompileShader( ps_4_0, PSScene() ) ); SetDepthStencilState( DisableDepthWrite, 0 ); SetRasterizerState( NoCulling ); SetBlendState( SrcAlphaBlendingAdd, float4( 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f ), 0xFFFFFFFF ); } }[/code]
