Who This ebook Is For

Direct3D Rendering Cookbook is for C# .NET builders who are looking to examine the complicated rendering thoughts made attainable with DirectX 11.2. it really is anticipated that the reader has at the least a cursory wisdom of images programming, and even though a few wisdom of Direct3D 10+ is useful, it's not beneficial. An figuring out of vector and matrix algebra is required.

What you'll Learn

  • Set up a Direct3D program and practice real-time 3D rendering with C# and SharpDX
  • Learn strategies for debugging your Direct3D application
  • Render a 3D atmosphere with lighting, shapes, and materials
  • Explore personality animation utilizing bones and vertex skinning
  • Create extra floor element utilizing tessellation with displacement mapping and displacement decals
  • Implement snapshot post-processing initiatives inside of compute shaders
  • Use real-time deferred rendering strategies to enforce superior shading for lights and shadows
  • Learn to software the pix pipeline with shaders utilizing HLSL carried out by means of Shader version 5

In Detail

The most up-to-date 3D pictures playing cards carry us outstanding visuals within the newest video games, from Indie to AAA titles. this can be made attainable on Microsoft® systems together with workstation, Xbox consoles, and cellular units because of Direct3D– an element of the DirectX API devoted to exposing 3D photographs to programmers. Microsoft DirectX is the photographs know-how powering all of modern-day most well liked video games. the newest model— DirectX 11—features tessellation for film-like geometric element, compute shaders for customized pix results, and greater multithreading for higher usage. With it comes a couple of primary video game altering advancements to the best way we render 3D graphics.

Direct3D Rendering Cookbook offers special .NET examples overlaying quite a lot of complicated 3D rendering ideas to be had in Direct3D 11.2. With this e-book, you'll the best way to use the recent visible Studio 2012 pics content material pipeline, the way to practice personality animation, tips on how to use complicated tessellation suggestions, tips on how to enforce displacement mapping, practice snapshot post-processing, and the way to take advantage of compute shaders for general-purpose computing on GPUs.

After overlaying a number of introductory themes approximately Direct3D 11.2 and dealing with the API utilizing C# and SharpDX, we fast ramp as much as the implementation of more than a few complicated rendering innovations, development upon the initiatives we create and the abilities we study in each one next bankruptcy. issues coated contain utilizing the recent visible Studio 2012 snap shots content material pipeline and photographs debugger, texture sampling, common mapping, lights and fabrics, loading meshes, personality animation (vertex skinning), tessellation, displacement mapping, utilizing compute shaders for post-process results, deferred rendering, and at last bringing all of this to home windows shop Apps for laptop and cellular. After finishing the recipes inside Direct3D Rendering Cookbook, you have an in-depth figuring out of quite a number complicated Direct3D rendering topics.

This permits us to minimize the variety of vertices despatched to the IA by means of reusing an identical vertices via index—if we used an index buffer for the axis traces, we'd have used 12 vertices rather than 18. even though this is not solely invaluable for our examples, greater meshes will quick see a discount within the reminiscence bandwidth used. // v0 v1 // |-----| // | \ A | // | B \ | // |-----| // v3 v2 quadIndices = ToDispose(Buffer. Create(device, BindFlags. IndexBuffer, new ushort[] { zero, 1, 2, // A 2, three, zero // B })); right here, now we have 4 vertices within the vertex buffer. to construct triangle A, we are going to use the indexes zero, 1, and a couple of; and to construct triangle B, we'll use the indexes 2, three, and zero. by way of default, a clockwise vertex path will outline front face of a primitive (for instance, from our digicam place) drawing a triangle from top-left to correct to bottom-right after which again to top-left will suggest that the again face is clear of the digital camera. Rotating the scene through one hundred eighty levels utilizing the arrow keys will express that the form now not renders as a result of back-face culling. try out reversing the vertex path to determine what occurs. we will be able to override the default course by way of assigning a RasterizerState item to the context. Rasterizer. kingdom estate, the place the RasterizerStateDescription. IsFrontCounterClockwise estate may be set to real or fake, as applicable. once we draw the triangle checklist for the quad, we needs to set an index buffer and a vertex buffer. Indices should be outlined utilizing sixteen or 32 bits. during this instance, we have now used an unsigned brief (16-bit). So we needs to use a layout of structure. R16_Uint while environment the index buffer. To enable the pipeline comprehend that we're utilizing the index buffer, we needs to name the DrawIndexed strategy instead of Draw. realize that even supposing we in basic terms outlined 4 vertices, we've requested it to attract six (the variety of indices). context. DrawIndexed(6, zero, 0); there is extra… you might have spotted that the particular pixel colours were interpolated among the vertices, that's, if vertex (A) of a line is pink (1, zero, zero, 1) and vertex (B) is eco-friendly (0, 1, zero, 1), all of the pixels in among were linearly interpolated among these values by way of the rasterizer degree (remember that the rasterizer degree is straight away earlier than the pixel shader). Half-way alongside the road, the worth of the pixel might be zero. five, zero. five, zero, and 1. this is applicable to the entire per-vertex attributes other than the vertex place. it really is attainable to manage the interpolation strategy for person vertex struct fields inside HLSL by way of prefixing with one of many following interpolation modifiers: linear: this is often the default mode of interpolation if no modifier is supplied. centroid: this system may possibly increase antialiasing if a pixel is partly lined, and it has to be mixed with linear or noperspective. nointerpolation: this technique tells the rasterizer to accomplish no interpolation, in its place utilizing the worth of the nearest vertex. this can be the one legitimate alternative for the int/uint kinds in a vertex. noperspective: this system factors the rasterizer not to practice point of view correction in the course of interpolation.
