Render To Texture

May 16, 2009 at 1:12 AM

I want to create a texture where I render everything in my scene as a depth pass, is there an easy example how to do this?  None of the tutorials seemed appropriate.

If you mean render depth into a texture, then yes, this is actually done in the shadow mapping tut.
If you mean render depth into a depth buffer, which to read from or to then use in another render target, then unfortunately XNA doesn't support this. (It will always clear depth no matter what you do)

I meant the first one (depth into a texture).  Ill look at the shadow mapping tut, thanks again.
