Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Retrieve values from PixelShader to the C++ side using RWTexture

I am currently trying to retrieve Depth and Translucency values for some research work. I am currently stuck at retrieving these values on to the CPU side. I am using a postprocessing pass and using its shader I am able to print the values to the screen. But what I would want to achieve is to store these values in a RWBuffer and retrieve them on to the CPU side for a specific no of frames. The UAV's that I am currently using tend to replace the PostProcess inputs when I try to do an atomic add on the UAV's on the shader side. I know this is confusing but does anyone have any experience in doing this?
