Specification Update Policy | |

Khronos-approved extension specifications are updated in response to | |

issues and bugs prioritized by the Khronos OpenGL ES Working Group. For | |

extensions which have been promoted to a core Specification, fixes will | |

first appear in the latest version of that core Specification, and will | |

eventually be backported to the extension document. This policy is | |

described in more detail at | |

https://www.khronos.org/registry/OpenGL/docs/update_policy.php | |

OpenGL ES Extension #45 | |

Dependencies | |

OpenGL ES 2.0 is required. | |

Overview | |

The standard derivative built-in functions and semantics from OpenGL 2.0 are | |

optional for OpenGL ES 2.0. When this extension is available, these | |

built-in functions are also available, as is a hint controlling the | |

quality/performance trade off. | |

Issues | |

None. | |

New Procedures and Functions | |

None | |

New Tokens | |

Accepted by the <target> parameter of Hint and by the <pname> parameter of | |

GetBooleanv, GetIntegerv, GetFloatv, and GetDoublev: | |

Additions to Chapter 5 of the OpenGL ES 2.0 specification: | |

In section 5.2 (Hints), add the following to the list of supported hints: | |

FRAGMENT_SHADER_DERIVATIVE_HINT_OES | |

Derivative accuracy for fragment processing built-in functions dFdx, dFdy | |

and fwidth. | |

Additions to Chapter 8 of the OpenGL ES Shading Language specification: | |

Replace section 8.8 (Fragment Processing Functions) with the following | |

paragraphs: | |

Fragment processing functions are only available in fragment shaders. | |

The built-in derivative functions dFdx, dFdy, and fwidth are optional, and | |

must be enabled by | |

#extension GL_OES_standard_derivatives : enable | |

before being used. | |

Derivatives may be computationally expensive and/or numerically unstable. | |

Therefore, an OpenGL ES implementation may approximate the true derivatives | |

by using a fast but not entirely accurate derivative computation. | |

The expected behavior of a derivative is specified using forward/backward | |

differencing. | |

Forward differencing: | |

F(x+dx) - F(x) is approximately equal to dFdx(x).dx 1a | |

dFdx(x) is approximately equal to F(x+dx) - F(x) 1b | |

-------------- | |

dx | |

Backward differencing: | |

F(x-dx) - F(x) is approximately equal to -dFdx(x).dx 2a | |

dFdx(x) is approximately equal to F(x) - F(x-dx) 2b | |

-------------- | |

dx | |

With single-sample rasterization, dx <= 1.0 in equations 1b and 2b. For | |

multi-sample rasterization, dx < 2.0 in equations 1b and 2b. | |

dFdy is approximated similarly, with y replacing x. | |

An OpenGL ES implementation may use the above or other methods to perform | |

the calculation, subject to the following conditions: | |

1. The method may use piecewise linear approximations. Such linear | |

approximations imply that higher order derivatives, dFdx(dFdx(x)) and | |

above, are undefined. | |

2. The method may assume that the function evaluated is continuous. | |

Therefore derivatives within the body of a non-uniform conditional are | |

undefined. | |

3. The method may differ per fragment, subject to the constraint that the | |

method may vary by window coordinates, not screen coordinates. The | |

invariance requirement described in section 3.1 of the OpenGL ES 2.0 | |

specification is relaxed for derivative calculations, because the method | |

may be a function of fragment location. | |

Other properties that are desirable, but not required, are: | |

4. Functions should be evaluated within the interior of a primitive | |

(interpolated, not extrapolated). | |

5. Functions for dFdx should be evaluated while holding y constant. | |

Functions for dFdy should be evaluated while holding x constant. | |

However, mixed higher order derivatives, like dFdx(dFdy(y)) and | |

dFdy(dFdx(x)) are undefined. | |

6. Derivatives of constant arguments should be 0. | |

In some implementations, varying degrees of derivative accuracy may be | |

obtained by providing GL hints (section 5.6 of the OpenGL ES 2.0 | |

specification), allowing a user to make an image quality versus speed trade | |

off. | |

GLSL ES functions | |

================= | |

genType dFdx (genType p) | |

Returns the derivative in x using local differencing for the input argument | |

p. | |

genType dFdy (genType p) | |

Returns the derivative in y using local differencing for the input argument | |

p. | |

These two functions are commonly used to estimate the filter width used to | |

anti-alias procedural textures. We are assuming that the expression is | |

being evaluated in parallel on a SIMD array so that at any given point in | |

time the value of the function is known at the grid points represented by | |

the SIMD array. Local differencing between SIMD array elements can | |

therefore be used to derive dFdx, dFdy, etc. | |

genType fwidth (genType p) | |

Returns the sum of the absolute derivative in x and y using local | |

differencing for the input argument p, i.e.: | |

abs (dFdx (p)) + abs (dFdy (p)); | |
