ID3D10Device::CopySubresourceRegion method (d3d10.h)
Copy a region from a source resource to a destination resource.
void CopySubresourceRegion( [in] ID3D10Resource *pDstResource, [in] UINT DstSubresource, [in] UINT DstX, [in] UINT DstY, [in] UINT DstZ, [in] ID3D10Resource *pSrcResource, [in] UINT SrcSubresource, [in] const D3D10_BOX *pSrcBox );
A pointer to the destination resource (see ID3D10Resource).
Subresource index of the destination.
The x coordinate of the upper left corner of the destination region.
The y coordinate of the upper left corner of the destination region.
The z coordinate of the upper left corner of the destination region. For a 1D or 2D subresource, this must be zero.
A pointer to the source resource (see ID3D10Resource).
Subresource index of the source.
Type: const D3D10_BOX*
A 3D box (see D3D10_BOX) that defines the source subresource that can be copied. If NULL, the entire source subresource is copied. The box must fit within the source resource.
An empty box results in a no-op. A box is empty if the top value is greater than or equal to the bottom value, or the left value is greater than or equal to the right value, or the front value is greater than or equal to the back value. When the box is empty, CopySubresourceRegion doesn't perform a copy operation.
The source box must be within the size of the source resource. The destination location is an absolute value (not a relative value). The destination location can be offset from the source location; however, the size of the region to copy (including the destination location) must fit in the destination resource.
If the resources are buffers, all coordinates are in bytes; if the resources are textures, all coordinates are in texels.
D3D10CalcSubresource is a helper function for calculating subresource indexes.
CopySubresourceRegion performs the copy on the GPU (similar to a memcpy by the CPU). As a consequence, the source and destination resources must meet the following criteria:
- Must be different subresources (although they can be from the same resource).
- Must be the same type.
- Must have compatible formats (the formats must either be identical or be from the same type group). For example, a DXGI_FORMAT_R32G32B32_FLOAT texture can be copied to a DXGI_FORMAT_R32G32B32_UINT texture because both of these formats are in the DXGI_FORMAT_R32G32B32_TYPELESS group. Beginning with Direct3D 10.1, CopySubresourceRegion can copy between a few format types. For more info, see Format Conversion using Direct3D 10.1.
- May not be currently mapped.
If your app needs to copy an entire resource, we recommend to use ID3D10Device::CopyResource instead.
CopySubresourceRegion is an asynchronous call that the runtime can add to the command-buffer queue. This asynchronous behaviorattempts to remove pipeline stalls that may occur when copying data. See performance considerations for more details.
Differences between Direct3D 10 and Direct3D 10.1:
Direct3D 10 has the following limitations:
D3D10_BOX sourceRegion; sourceRegion.left = 120; sourceRegion.right = 200; sourceRegion.top = 100; sourceRegion.bottom = 220; sourceRegion.front = 0; sourceRegion.back = 1; pd3dDevice->CopySubresourceRegion( pDestTexture, 0, 130, 120, 0, pSourceTexture, 0, &sourceRegion );
Notice that, for a 2D texture, front and back are always set to 0 and 1 respectively.
