In that case... What I would really like to know is if there is any way to access the depth buffer of the SelectionPass ;-)

I think the only way to do that would be to add an extra pass (eg; DepthPass) that returns a depth image.

With an additional pass I could (probably) use a shader to copy gl_FragCoord into gl_FragColor, and access the depth info from there. Such a shame though, because SelectionPass already has a perfectly usable depth buffer, but I can't seem to find a way to access it.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
