Computes unit normals for each vertex in a mesh. Provided to support legacy applications. Use D3DXComputeTangentFrameEx for better results.
- pMesh [in, out]
Pointer to an ID3DXBaseMesh interface, representing the normalized mesh object.
- pAdjacency [in]
Type: const DWORD*
Pointer to an array of three DWORDs per face that specify the three neighbors for each face in the created progressive mesh. This parameter is optional and should be set to NULL if it is unused.
If the function succeeds, the return value is S_OK. If the function fails, the return value can be one of the following: D3DERR_INVALIDCALL, D3DXERR_INVALIDDATA, E_OUTOFMEMORY.
The input mesh must have the D3DFVF_NORMAL flag specified in its flexible vertex format (FVF).
A normal for a vertex is generated by averaging the normals of all faces that share that vertex.
If adjacency is provided, replicated vertices are ignored and "smoothed" over. If adjacency is not provided, replicated vertices will have normals averaged in from only the faces explicitly referencing them.
This function simply calls D3DXComputeTangentFrameEx with the following input parameters:
D3DXComputeTangentFrameEx( pMesh, D3DX_DEFAULT, 0, D3DX_DEFAULT, 0, D3DX_DEFAULT, 0, D3DDECLUSAGE_NORMAL, 0, D3DXTANGENT_GENERATE_IN_PLACE | D3DXTANGENT_CALCULATE_NORMALS, pAdjacency, -1.01f, -0.01f, -1.01f, NULL, NULL);
