Can I generate geometry with a vertex shader?

0

A vertex shader cannot create or destroy vertices; it operates on a single vertex at a time, taking one unprocessed vertex as input and outputting a single processed vertex. It can therefore be used to manipulate existing geometry (applying deformations, or performing skinning operations) but cannot actually generate new geometry per se.
