SkiaGL has problems drawing shadows


(Core :: Canvas: 2D, defect)

Drawing a solid filled rect with a shadow renders incorrectly with SkiaGL. The shadow appears in the wrong location and larger than specified.
Matt if you have a chance to look at this it would be appreciated. I fear it is some issue with the Skia gpu backend, though. Our stuff in DrawTargetSkia looks to be fine, and works ok with the software backend.
It's definitely a problem with the Skia GPU code.

When drawing an image with a shadow, you're supposed to use the alpha channel of the source image as the mask to blur.

The skia code written for blurring doesn't do this, and just uses the path (usually a rect) for the mask. This is what chrome is using.

For a image with transparent sections, only the outside of the rect gets blurred, which is often transparent pixels. The interior of the image doesn't get blurring.

See this testcase which doesn't blur on chrome, but does on firefox:

We use an SkRasterizer to convert the source image's alpha channel into a mask to be used for blurring, and the GPU backend just ignores this entirely.

We can make the slow path for this work fairly easily, doing the whole thing on the GPU would require more serious changes.

Quick solution: 

Don't bother calling drawWithGPUMaskFilter if paint.getRasterizer() returns something.

Pass the rasterizer into drawWithMaskFilter

The first call, to SkDraw::DrawToMask is generating us a mask using the path.

If we have a rasterizer, do this instead:

Ideally we'd be able to do that all on the GPU. I think we should hack up this fix, and file a skia bug and convince them to do the optimized version. Might need to convince them that their version is broken, and not to spec.
I can take a look at doing this next week.

What is the state of SkiaGL on various branches? i.e. which branch should I be using to test and fix this?

Anything special I need to do to get it enabled on mac?
The graphics branch is where we've been doing our work, but I think this bug is mostly independent of that stuff. That branch should work out of the box on mac with SkiaGL enabled.
Looks like it works. It is going to make us fall off the fast path for shadows though, since this does them on the CPU.

I haven't run our tests with this, can someone do that and make sure it fixes what we expect.

We still want to file a skia bug and try get a GPU implementation for this

Looks like it works to me, but it still fails some shadow tests in test_canvas.html. I had to mess with it a bit to build on the graphics branch, though, so maybe I messed something up.
I guess maybe we aren't handling alpha correctly now for the shadow? Following test (and others) still fails with this patch (test_canvas.html, c501):

ctx.fillStyle = '#f00';
ctx.fillRect(0, 0, 100, 50);
ctx.fillStyle = '#f00'; // (work around broken Firefox globalAlpha caching)
ctx.shadowColor = '#00f';
ctx.shadowOffsetY = 50;
ctx.globalAlpha = 0.5;
ctx.fillRect(0, -50, 100, 50);

isPixel(ctx, 50,25, 127,0,127,255, 2);

Test expects the rect to be purple, but it is blue.
Fixed the bug with c501.

The alpha turned out to be a red herring. The issue was a zero blur radius meant that we skipped the code I changed entirely.

I can't get test_canvas to run without crashing, so I'm not sure if this fixes all the remaining shadow tests.

Tidied it up a bit.

I modified this to work on the graphics branch, and I also get a crash. Again, it's possible I screwed something up to cause.

It looks like dstM.fImage is bogus (0x1) in drawWithMaskFilter(). Not sure why yet.
Ah, it's uninitialized. Zeroing out avoids the crash, but this still fails a bunch of tests and does not look correct in the jsfiddle either. Matt it would be very helpful if you can work on the graphics branch to take my fumbling out of the equation :)
Rebased to graphics branch, runs with only 5 remaining failures (none of which have shadows).

Dont ignore the paints rasterizer v4

Review of attachment 768060 [details] [diff] [review]:

I actually pass all of test_canvas.html with graphics branch + this patch, so I'm calling it a r+

We should get this upstreamed ASAP. We will never be closer to mainline than we are now, and I think the Chrome folks would like this too.
This is totally not ready to land :) Passes all the shadow tests though.

I got a shutdown crash (when destroying the DrawTargetSkia) in GrResourceEntry::validate -

It's also definitely not optimal.

When drawing shadows, our source is *always* an image (even if the canvas api calls were a fill rect), CanvasRenderingContext2D allocates a temporary image and rasterizes the command to the first.

So we're running the SkRasterizer to convert this source image (probably RGBA32) into an A8 SkMask.

Then we upload that to a texture, but most GPU's don't support render-to-texture with a8 (according to the inline comments here), so the texture is RGBA32 and we're going to be converting again during the upload.

Then we do the blur on that texture on the gpu to generate our actual mask texture.

Then we draw the source rect, solid colour source through the mask to get our shadow.

Skipping the rgba32 -> a8 -> rgba32 roundabout would be worthwhile, but it probably requires API additions to SkRasterizer.
