Description

a year ago
STR:
- visit https://webvr.info/samples/03-vr-presentation.html
- Click the "Enter VR" button on the page (tested with an Oculus CV1 headset)
- Resize the 2d window to be more than 1/4 the area of the monitor (tested with a UHD resolution display)
- As each part of the window is repainted, including the browser chrome, it is filled with solid white.
- Resizing the window back to a smaller size results in the window being repainted normally again.
- After pressing "Exit VR", the effect is no longer seen.

Disabling the Advanced Layers works around the issue:

layers.mlgpu.dev-enabled = false
I can reproduce it when running https://webvr.info/samples/XX-vr-controllers.html with Oculus Rift after entering the present mode at Nightly debug build.

After layers.mlgpu.dev-enabled = false, it will be good.

The problem is that we are rendering to the same D3D11 device context as the 2D Compositor, which attempts to reduce state changes by mirroring the DX11 state.

When the VR code sets up the framebuffer, shader, and resources for Oculus and blits the texture in, it doesn't update the mirrored state in the 2d compositor.

My solution will be to use a separate DX11 context for the WebVR code.  This is something we will need anyways when we move it out to its own process.

This patch now includes refactoring aligned with other work in WebGLContext and HTMLCanvasElement to eliminate the mirror specific render paths.

This new implementation for the 2d mirroring also corrects the handling of preserveDrawingBuffer, fixing the mirroring on some sites like Sketchfab.

This patch is nearly ready to assign to review and land -- before landing it, I need to add a call-back in PVRManager to the child process to inform that the VR compositing is done with the texture.  (See the "HACK!" keyword in my patch)

I've duplicated it here so this can land independently and be easily uplifted to Beta, but should apply it only in the bug that lands first.

I feel calling CreateShaderResourceView() at VSync update loop will bring some penalty on performance.

Can we keep the srcView ptr for reusing?

IIRC this patch is insufficient to guarantee correct behavior by itself, but I don't remember exactly why. I needed to update how we pull frames from WebGL in order for this to work properly.

Marking r- for now, because of this.

On its own, this patch would not work properly.  The other, "Bug 1381085 - Move VR to its own D3D11Device" patch removes the code that needed the mirroring, making the code removed in this patch effectively dead.

With all these patches in place, we are restoring the WebGL and Canvas element code back to how it was prior to the WebVR implementation and taking another approach.

The new approach no longer involves creating a new TextureForwarder and calling Morph().  Rather, it steals the shared texture from the existing Textureclient, sends it directly to the VR compositor, and ensures that the Textureclient lives long enough and doesn't get recycled into the pool until we have finished reading from the texture.  Effectively, it solves the issue we were working around initially -- sharing a texture made in one thread with two others.

After seeing what I am doing with the other patch, could you let me know if this is a good direction?  Also, could you advise if my way of pulling the frames would run into the same issues you were referring to?

You can use ID3DDeviceContextState for this.

Bug 1382104 has/will have a change to how frames are pulled from WebGL. I really really do not want to have related changes go in before that, given how long it's already taken to stabilize.

The motivation for pushing this bug through, is that it prevents major browser breakage after Advanced Layers are turned on (Bug 1385051).  IIUC, advanced layers will be enabled in FF57.  Is your patch planned to land within FF57 as well?

If it makes it easier, I can defer much of the cleanup (ie. removing dead code) and minify this patch a bit, with any other feedback you have.  I can also rebase it on top of your patches and line it up for landing after yours.

Would that help?  I would like to coordinate with you in any way to be sure not to de-stabilize your work.
Flags: needinfo?(jgilbert)
We've been trying to keep the number of D3D devices low, so that's another reason to investigate using an ID3DDeviceContextState object. Can you give that a shot before we move forward on these more invasive changes?

I'll give it a try, thanks!

Later, we will need the full D3D11Device as we will be moving the VR code out to its own process.  The immediate need for this bug may be solved with the ID3DDeviceContextState.
Flags: needinfo?(kgilbert)
That's fine. We're just trying to keep the number of devices per process down.

I have moved all the cleanup refactoring to a separate bug that can be landed after this one, bug 1400407.

Now just need to update the patches to use ID3DDeviceContextState rather than a separate ID3D11Device.
(Assignee)

Comment 43

10 months ago
It is still necessary to keep the refactoring that changes the PVRLayer protocol to use a SurfaceDescriptor rather than PTexture due to TextureHost and its friends all being hard coded to use the compositor's ID3D11Device.

The alternative would be to make extensive changes to many classes including TextureHost and TextureParent.  The decoupling of the VR rendering pipeline from PTexture, TextureHost, and TextureParent will also make upcoming work easier as we move WebVR's host side to its own process and thread using code shared with Servo.

Generally this sort of class should contain the previous value to restore, instead of reaching in to another class.

I have moved the member holding the previous value to the AutoRestoreRenderState class.  The other D3D11 objects (Device, DeviceContext, and DeviceContextState) are accessed from VRDisplayHost.

Note that this code will likely be temporary, as we will need our own independent D3D11Device when we move this code to its own process in FF58.

Thanks for the feedback, I have updated the patch based on your suggestion.

I have assigned the new patch for review by @daosheng, as it is now self-contained in /gfx/vr/.  If you have more feedback, or would prefer to be the reviewer for this, please let me know.  Note that this is time critical (needed before FF57 uplift to avoid whole-browser breakage when users hit webvr sites).

After pushing some experiments to the try servers with extra logging, I found that the failure on Windows 7 is due to lack of support for DirectX 11.1 on the aws instances.  Support for DirectX 11.1 can be added by installing the optional "Platform Update for Windows 7":

https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/download/details.aspx?id=36805

Specifically, VRDisplayHost::CreateD3DObjects() is failing at getting an ID3D11Device1:

> if (FAILED(device->QueryInterface(__uuidof(ID3D11Device1), getter_AddRefs(mDevice)))) {

Note that ID3D11Device1 is needed in order to use ID3DDeviceContextState for the simpler fix, and not needed any more once we can land the refactoring that has been moved to Bug 1400407 and Bug 1400457.

Approval Request Comment
[Feature/Bug causing the regression]:
Bug 1375743 - Enable Advanced Layers for Windows 8+ Nightly
[User impact if declined]:
When starting WebVR, the entire Firefox window will fail to redraw correctly, being filled with solid colors.
[Is this code covered by automated tests?]:
Yes, automated Reftests and Mochitests will hit the code paths affected.
[Has the fix been verified in Nightly?]:
Yes, the fix has landed in Nightly.  The problem no longer persists.
[Needs manual test from QE? If yes, steps to reproduce]: 
Yes, STR:
- With an Oculus Rift CV1 installed, visit a WebVR page, such as https://webvr.info/samples/04-simple-mirroring.html
- Click the "enter vr" button.
- Resize the Firefox window.
- Expected results: The Firefox window will resize and repaint itself normally
- Failure results: The Firefox window will become corrupted and the contents obscured by solid filled rectangles.
[List of other uplifts needed for the feature/fix]:
None
[Is the change risky?]:
Low risk.
[Why is the change risky/not risky?]:
Change is self-contained, affecting code paths hit only by WebVR sites when VR hardware is attached.
[String changes made/needed]:
N/A
