Who This ebook Is For

Direct3D Rendering Cookbook is for C# .NET builders who are looking to research the complicated rendering ideas 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 supposing a few wisdom of Direct3D 10+ is useful, it isn't precious. An knowing 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 ideas for debugging your Direct3D application
  • Render a 3D setting with lighting fixtures, shapes, and materials
  • Explore personality animation utilizing bones and vertex skinning
  • Create extra floor element utilizing tessellation with displacement mapping and displacement decals
  • Implement photo post-processing initiatives inside compute shaders
  • Use real-time deferred rendering recommendations to enforce better shading for lights and shadows
  • Learn to application the snap shots pipeline with shaders utilizing HLSL carried out via Shader version 5

In Detail

The most up-to-date 3D photographs playing cards carry us notable visuals within the newest video games, from Indie to AAA titles. this is often made attainable on Microsoft® systems together with workstation, Xbox consoles, and cellular units due to Direct3D– an element of the DirectX API devoted to exposing 3D pix to programmers. Microsoft DirectX is the photographs expertise powering all of state-of-the-art most well-liked video games. the newest model— DirectX 11—features tessellation for film-like geometric aspect, compute shaders for customized images results, and greater multithreading for greater usage. With it comes a few primary online game altering advancements to the way we render 3D graphics.

Direct3D Rendering Cookbook presents exact .NET examples overlaying a variety of complicated 3D rendering ideas to be had in Direct3D 11.2. With this ebook, you'll find out how to use the recent visible Studio 2012 photos content material pipeline, how you can practice personality animation, how one can use complicated tessellation thoughts, 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 masking a couple 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 a number of complex rendering thoughts, construction upon the initiatives we create and the abilities we study in each one next bankruptcy. issues lined comprise utilizing the recent visible Studio 2012 snap shots content material pipeline and photos 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 eventually bringing all of this to home windows shop Apps for computing device and cellular. After finishing the recipes inside Direct3D Rendering Cookbook, you've gotten an in-depth figuring out of quite a number complicated Direct3D rendering topics.

The programmable phases are often called shaders, and are programmed utilizing small excessive point Shader Language (HLSL) courses. The HLSL is applied with a chain of shader versions, every one construction upon the former model. each one shader version model helps a suite of shader profiles, which characterize the objective pipeline level to bring together a shader. Direct3D eleven introduces Shader version five (SM5), a superset of Shader version four (SM4). An instance shader profile is ps_5_0, which shows a shader application is to be used within the pixel shader level and calls for SM5. phases of the programmable pipeline All Direct3D operations ensue through one of many pipelines, often called pipelines for the truth that info flows in a single path from one level to the subsequent. For all drawing operations, the photographs pipeline is used (also referred to as drawing pipeline or rendering pipeline). To run compute shaders, the dispatch pipeline is used (aka DirectCompute pipeline or compute shader pipeline). even if those pipelines are conceptually separate. they can not be lively while. Context switching among the 2 pipelines additionally incurs extra overhead so each one pipeline could be utilized in blocks—for instance, run any compute shaders to organize info, practice all rendering, and eventually put up processing. equipment regarding levels of the pipeline are discovered at the gadget context. For the controlled API, every one degree is grouped right into a estate named after the pipeline level. for instance, for the vertex shader level, deviceContext. VertexShader. SetShaderResources, while the unmanaged API teams the tools by means of a degree acronym without delay at the equipment context, for instance, deviceContext->VSSetShaderResources, the place VS represents the vertex shader degree. The portraits pipeline The images pipeline is produced from 9 detailed levels which are ordinarily used to create 2nd raster representations of 3D scenes, that's, take our 3D version and switch it into what we see at the exhibit. 4 of those levels are fastened functionality and the rest 5 programmable levels are known as shaders (the following diagram indicates the programmable levels as a circle). The output of every degree is taken as enter into the following besides sure assets or in relation to the final degree, Output Merger (OM), the output is shipped to 1 or extra render objectives. now not all the levels are necessary and protecting the variety of levels concerned to a minimal will as a rule lead to swifter rendering. non-compulsory tessellation help is equipped by way of the 3 tessellation levels (two programmable and one fastened function): the hull shader, tessellator, and area shader. The tessellation phases require a Direct3D function point of eleven. zero or later. As of Direct3D eleven. 1, each one programmable degree is ready to read/write to an Unordered entry View (UAV). A UAV is a view of a buffer or texture source that has been created with the BindFlags. UnorderedAccess flag (D3D11_BIND_UNORDERED_ACCESS from the D3D11_BIND_FLAG enumeration). Direct3D portraits Pipeline enter Assembler (IA) level The IA level reads primitive info (points, strains, and/or triangles) from buffers and assembles them into primitives to be used in next levels.
