RenderPipeline

Description

sealed class Tinman.AddOns.DirectX12.Pipeline.RenderPipeline

Derived from

Disposable abstract
INativeHandle

Full source code is included in the Tinman 3D SDK download.

Represents the low-level D3D12 rendering pipeline logic that is required by the IGraphicsContext API.

The native handle (see INativeHandle) of a render pipeline is the ID3D12CommandQueue* pointer to the command queue.

Public / Methods

public method Begin → (1)

state opt : bool = false

(Re-)establish the command list state?

Prepares the command list for a new piece of work.

DescriptorAllocate

The descriptor range ID that represents the allocation.

Allocates a range of descriptors from the given pool.

The descriptor range ID 0 refers to an empty range of descriptors and may be used as a null value.

This method guarantees to return the same D3D12_CPU_DESCRIPTOR_HANDLE value for each descriptor in the given range in, unless Reset is called: in this case, different D3D12_CPU_DESCRIPTOR_HANDLE values may be returned.

Returns the D3D12_GPU_DESCRIPTOR_HANDLE value for the given range of descriptors.

This method guarantees to return the same D3D12_GPU_DESCRIPTOR_HANDLE value for each descriptor in the given range in, unless Reset is called: in this case, different D3D12_GPU_DESCRIPTOR_HANDLE values may be returned.

DescriptorRelease


public method DescriptorRelease → (1)

range in : int32

The descriptor range ID, as returned by DescriptorAllocate.

Releases the given range of descriptors.

DescriptorReleaseWhenDone


public method DescriptorReleaseWhenDone → (1)

End


public method End → ()

Ends the current piece of work.

FenceReached


public method FenceReached → (1)

value in : int64

The fence value.

returns → bool

true if FenceGpu is greater than or equal to value in, false if not.

Checks if the given fence value has been reached.

Flush


public method Flush → (1)

fence opt : int64 = Maths.MaxLong

The largest fence value (inclusive) to include in the flush.

returns → int64

The fence value that will be set by the GPU when all flushed commands have finished.

Flushes the command list, if necessary.

Reset


public method Reset → ()

Resets the pipeline for a new IBeginEnd.Begin/IBeginEnd.End cycle of the IGraphicsContext.

This method will wait until all GPU work for the last frame has finished, blocking the calling thread if necessary.

StateCleanup


public method StateCleanup → (1)

disposed in : object

The object that is being disposed.

Removes all cached pipeline state objects that are based on the given object.

UploadBytes


public method UploadBytes → (5)

data in : IntPtr

The CPU memory address of the data to upload. This pointer needs to be valid only during the duration of this method call.

resource in : IntPtr

The ID3D12Resource* pointer of the GPU buffer resource to copy to.

state in : int32

The D3D12_RESOURCE_STATE value of resource in, before and after the copy operation.

offset in : int64

[>=0]
Byte offset into resource in.

size in : int32

[>=0]
The number of bytes to transfer.

Uploads bytes from system memory to GPU buffer while obeying GpuUpdateFlag.Discard semantic.

UploadTexels


public method UploadTexels → (5)

data in : TexelBuffer

[not-null]
The texel buffer to upload. This buffer needs to be valid only during the duration of this method call.

resource in : IntPtr

The ID3D12Resource* pointer of the GPU texture resource to copy to.

subResource in : int32

[>=0]
The sub-resource in resource in to copy to.

in : int32

[>=0]
X-coordinate of top-left texel in resource in to copy to.

in : int32

[>=0]
Y-coordinate of top-left texel in resource in to copy to.

returns → bool

true if the texel upload has been submitted to the GPU,
false if the texel upload has been rejected.

Uploads texels from system memory to a GPU texture while obeying GpuUpdateFlag.Discard semantic.

A texel upload may be rejected iff:

  • The amount of data to upload is greater than the capacity of the upload buffer.

  • After waiting for 1000ms for the GPU to process finish pending texel upload jobs, in order to make sufficient room in the upload buffer.
