Packing Utils

This documentation article contains information on the UUSL packing functions. This information can be used as the reference document for writing shaders.

To start using common UUSL functionality, include the core/materials/shaders/api/common.h and core/materials/shaders/api/pack_utils.h files.

UUSL
#include <core/materials/shaders/api/common.h>
#include <core/materials/shaders/api/pack_utils.h>

Implementation of the API-dependent functions#

The implementation of the API-dependent functions is available in the corresponding header files for your reference:

  • core/materials/shaders/api/wrapper/opengl.h
  • core/materials/shaders/api/wrapper/directx11.h

Packing Utils#
