Detailed Description

VSG extension Compute shader scheduler node

This node allows the application to setup the invocation of a compute shader.

When traversed by a rendering action, this node launches one or more compute work groups. Each work group is processed by the current SoShaderProgram for the SoComputeShader stage.

See Compute Shader section of the OpenGL wiki for more information about the execution model of compute shaders.

NOTE: node available since Open Inventor 10.12

Member Enumeration Documentation

Scheduling Policies.


The computation is executed each time this node is traversed by a rendering action.


The computation is executed only if the trigger field is touched.

See trigger.

Member Data Documentation

Specifies the number of local work groups dispatched in the X, Y and Z dimensions for the computation.

Default value is (1, 1, 1)

Specifies the policy used for scheduling the computation.

Use enum Policy. Default value is EACH_FRAME

Trigger field to execute the shader computation.

Effective only if policy is ON_TRIGGER.
