Do not send Reflection and Refraction matrices to shader when not needed
Needs ReviewPublic

Authored by Angen on Jun 5 2019, 11:43 AM.



We should avoid to send not needed data into shaders as much as possible.

Test Plan

enable reflection/refraction
move camera
disable them
move camera
enable them
check that effects are correctly applied

  • Indenting the water shader is wrong (the #ifs don't necessarily correspond to real ifs)

Edit: got confused about one point.

I would leave indenting, because it is easier to read.
Used already in this file and some others: terrain_common.vs, terrain_common.fs, model_waterfall.vs, model_waterfall.fs, model_water.fs::get_shadow, model_common.*

I agree that it's harder to read the code without indents for some people. Only objection that I'm thinking about, if you remove #if with leaving the code you need to fix the indents again that also means you rewrite the blame again.

WAT, why I commandeered it? Sorry anyway! @Angen could you take it back?

@Angen The "real" indentation of the if L315-330 conflicts with the #if indentation. That's one reason not to indent I think.

Will test and commit after, this is a good idea


ok so it's merged with the same code below. LGTM I suppose.

@Angen How is this going, my friend? Is there a good solution released? I can test it for you.

@gameboy not related to water problem

@Angen When will there be a solution to the water problem?

Angen added a comment.Jun 8 2019, 11:17 AM

Vladislav told he will look into his older patch, I tried to but cannot solve it, unless we remove something but it might lower performance.

@Angen If you can launch this patch that may degrade performance, let me test it. I want to test this patch to help you.

@wraitii Thoughts on this ?
