DirectX GLTF Viewer Sample
This project was motivated by a lack of sample code demonstrating the graphics API agnostic nature of the glTF specification. The sample code is written using modern C++, DirectX 11 and the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) for the client application. The client application could have been written using any application development platform that supports DirectX 11 rendering. This sample is a port of the Khronos PBR WebGL Sample and supports the same feature set.
The screenshot is showing the DamagedHelmet sample file being rendered in the scene window, some controls to the right to adjust transforms and a Tree View control with the scene hierarchy.
- Physically Based Rendering (PBR)
- Buffer Management
- Specification Support
- Environment Map
- Selective PBR Rendering
The selective PBR rendering allow you to turn on and off different parts of the PBR shader to provide a better understanding of the visual effect of each.
Nuget was used for package management for installing the binary dependencies.
The original version of this project was built using Visual Studio 2017 Version 15.6.7 on Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (16299.0). However, the TreeView control was offered in the SDK from version 17134.0 so the project has been updated to require this removing the extra code dependency in the process. The project has also been testd with version 15.7.1 but there was a need to add the compiler flag '/d2CoroOptsWorkaround' as in coroutines some variables may get optimised away incorrectly causing an access violation under certain circumstances. The project has subsequently been tested in Visual Studio version 15.7.2.
