    GL_ARB_shader_stencil_export not supported


    i'm trying to understand why this extension is not supported on Nvidia hardware. I installed the latest driver driver it is not yet supported! It was approved almost three years ago!

    Is it the same for you too or is my mistake? And why is it so?!?!?

    AFAIK, NVIDIA's hardware does not support that feature. That's probably also the reason why ARB_shader_stencil_export was not included in any OpenGL 4.x version either.

    As I know, only AMD Radeon HD5000 and newer support it.
