Specifies the sampler to which the texture from which texels will be retrieved is bound.


Specifies the texture coordinates at which texture will be sampled.


Specifies the partial derivative of P with respect to window x.


Specifies the partial derivative of P with respect to window y.


textureGrad performs a texture lookup at coordinate P from the texture bound to sampler with explicit texture coordinate gradiends as specified in dPdx and dPdy. Set:

δs δx = δP δx   for a 1D texture,  δP.s δx   otherwise

δs δy = δP δy   for a 1D texture,  δP.s δy   otherwise

δt δx = 0.0   for a 1D texture,  δP.t δx otherwise

δt δy = 0.0   for a 1D texture,  δP.t δy   otherwise

δr δx = 0.0   for a 1D or 2D texture,  δP.p δx   otherwise

δr δy = 0.0   for a 1D or 2D texture,  δP.p δy   otherwise

For the cube version, the partial derivatives of P are assumed to be in the coordinate system used before texture coordinates are projected onto the appropriate cube face.
