Not able to get stencil to work
Posted on 2010-09-16
Was trying to get Stencil to work in my app. I use Sprites to render content on to the Device. Content could be movies, pictures or text.
Can I set the stencil buffer using these Sprites, which can be used in later passes to stencil out other Sprites being rendered?
I'm even not able to stencil out any of the Sprites by setting StencilFunction = Compare.Never! Anything wrong that I might be doing?
Bit more searching got me to a technique wherein we draw silhouette of the shapes to be added to the stencil buffer. Is this really required in my case? I just want to use the Sprites, and add them to stencil buffer to stencil out other Sprites.
