How to access/calculate worldNormal in a Vertex and Fragment shader ?

Thanks a lot !


Multiply the normal with the worldmatrix, not the world_view_projection.

do this in the vertex shader, and then pass the value down as a linear interpolation value. then you dont need to do it in the pixelshader.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Like this ? o.WorldNormal = normalize( mul(float4(v.normal, 0.0), _Object2World).xyz); \$\endgroup\$ – MaT Jul 10 '13 at 13:37
  • \$\begingroup\$ Yes, that looks correct. \$\endgroup\$ – Tordin Jul 10 '13 at 13:50
