I need an Edge Dilation Filter GLSL!!


I have a trouble. I have an image, and a shadowmap of this image done. Trough the shadowmap and applying a sobel edge filter i could find the contours of the shadowmap. Now my purpose is to dilate them. Unfortunately i could not find any example of this here except this one made by PocketMoon:


Unfortunately i don’t have acess to this file, and i can’t seem to find any similar example in the internet! Can anyone help me? Here’s my project. What do i have to code/do? http://rapidshare.com/files/265864726/Shadow_Mapping_with_GLSL.zip.html

Cheap solution. Use the HW to generate MIPmaps and then use a reduced MIP level. May or may not be good enough for you (blocky). Or you can write a shader to perform whatever blur/convolve you can think up.

Yes, but my main problem is not about knowing how the shader works, but how to transport the framebuffer into a texture that the shader will receive and modify…in this case my program should have 2 shaders, first the sobel filter one, and second the dilation one. I just don’t know how to make the interaction between them, wich means i dont know how the dilation filter can receive the result of the sobel filter to make the dilation. How can i code/pseudo code that in GLSL?

Please keep your discussion on a single topic.

Generic beginner boards seem more appropriate than pure GLSL, so continue the discussion here : http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=262098#Post262098

Thank you.
