Instructions - vs_1_1

This section contains reference information for the vertex shader version 1_1 instructions.

There are several types of vertex shader instructions, as shown in the table. Columns to the right mean the following:

  • Instruction slots - Number of instruction slots used by each instruction.
  • Setup - Non-arithmetic instructions. Every shader must have a version instruction and it must be the first instruction.
  • Arithmetic - These instructions provide the mathematical operations in a shader.
  • New - These instructions are new to this version.
