Hi there,

I'm wondering wether the InstantReality shader-interface does support "Transform Feedback" as known from OpenGL to receive the values of varyings.

Is there perhaps a secret string to put in the ComposedShaders logFeature?

What I want to do is multipass rendering, meaning running several units of Vertex-, Geometry- & Fragmentshaders successively with the possibility to edit the input-vertexbuffer in a prior unit as input to its following unit.
I have read that in HLSL this might be possible and I think that the InstantReality-Node "PackagedShader" can perform something like that.


But I have to use GLSL because I'm running on a linux-machine. Does someone think that this is possible? Is there something comparable to the "stream-out"-functionality in HLSL up from ShaderModel 4.0 ?

No, unfortunately this is also not implemented. Most of the whole modern shader stuff is still a todo. Very sorry for that. Sad
