mesh Microsoft.DirectX.Direct3D.Mesh
A Mesh object that represents the source mesh.
adjacency Microsoft.DirectX.GraphicsStream
Array of three Int32Leave Site values per face that specify the three neighbors for each face in the mesh to be simplified.
vertexAttributeWeights Microsoft.DirectX.Direct3D.AttributeWeights
An AttributeWeights structure that contains the weight for each vertex component. If this parameter is omitted, a default structure is used. See Remarks.
vertexWeights Microsoft.DirectX.GraphicsStream
A GraphicsStream of vertex weights. If this parameter is set to 0, all vertex weights are set to 1.0.
minValue System.Int32
Number of vertices or faces, depending on the flag set in the options parameter, by which to simplify the source mesh.
options Microsoft.DirectX.Direct3D.MeshFlags
Simplification options for the mesh; can be one of the Simplify* flags in MeshFlags.

Return Value

A Mesh object that represents the returned simplification mesh.


This method generates a mesh that has minValue vertices or faces.

If the simplification process cannot reduce the mesh to minValue, the call still succeeds, because minValue is a desired minimum, not an absolute minimum.

If vertexAttributeWeights is omitted, the following values are assigned to the default AttributeWeights structure (C# code shown).

AttributeWeights aWeights;

aWeights.Position  = 1.0;
aWeights.Boundary =  1.0;
aWeights.Normal   =  1.0;
aWeights.Diffuse  =  0.0;
aWeights.Specular =  0.0;
aWeights.Tex[8]   =  {0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0};

This default structure is what most applications should use, because it considers only geometric and normal adjustment. Only in special cases will the other member fields need to be modified.
