C Specification

To enqueue a command to copy image objects, call the function

cl_int clEnqueueCopyImage(
    cl_command_queue command_queue,
    cl_mem src_image,
    cl_mem dst_image,
    const size_t* src_origin,
    const size_t* dst_origin,
    const size_t* region,
    cl_uint num_events_in_wait_list,
    const cl_event* event_wait_list,
    cl_event* event);

Parameters

  • src_image and dst_image can be 1D, 2D, 3D image or a 1D, 2D image array objects. It is possible to copy subregions between any combinations of source and destination types, provided that the dimensions of the subregions are the same e.g., one can copy a rectangular region from a 2D image to a slice of a 3D image.

  • command_queue refers to the host command-queue in which the copy command will be queued. The OpenCL context associated with command_queue, src_image and dst_image must be the same.

  • src_origin defines the (x, y, z) offset in pixels in the 1D, 2D or 3D image, the (x, y) offset and the image index in the 2D image array or the (x) offset and the image index in the 1D image array. If image is a 2D image object, src_origin[2] must be 0. If src_image is a 1D image object, src_origin[1] and src_origin[2] must be 0. If src_image is a 1D image array object, src_origin[2] must be 0. If src_image is a 1D image array object, src_origin[1] describes the image index in the 1D image array. If src_image is a 2D image array object, src_origin[2] describes the image index in the 2D image array.

  • dst_origin defines the (x, y, z) offset in pixels in the 1D, 2D or 3D image, the (x, y) offset and the image index in the 2D image array or the (x) offset and the image index in the 1D image array. If dst_image is a 2D image object, dst_origin[2] must be 0. If dst_image is a 1D image or 1D image buffer object, dst_origin[1] and dst_origin[2] must be 0. If dst_image is a 1D image array object, dst_origin[2] must be 0. If dst_image is a 1D image array object, dst_origin[1] describes the image index in the 1D image array. If dst_image is a 2D image array object, dst_origin[2] describes the image index in the 2D image array.

  • region defines the (width, height, depth) in pixels of the 1D, 2D or 3D rectangle, the (width, height) in pixels of the 2D rectangle and the number of images of a 2D image array or the (width) in pixels of the 1D rectangle and the number of images of a 1D image array. If src_image or dst_image is a 2D image object, region[2] must be 1. If src_image or dst_image is a 1D image or 1D image buffer object, region[1] and region[2] must be 1. If src_image or dst_image is a 1D image array object, region[2] must be 1. The values in region cannot be 0.

  • event_wait_list and num_events_in_wait_list specify events that need to complete before this particular command can be executed. If event_wait_list is NULL, then this particular command does not wait on any event to complete. If event_wait_list is NULL, num_events_in_wait_list must be 0. If event_wait_list is not NULL, the list of events pointed to by event_wait_list must be valid and num_events_in_wait_list must be greater than 0. The events specified in event_wait_list act as synchronization points. The context associated with events in event_wait_list and command_queue must be the same. The memory associated with event_wait_list can be reused or freed after the function returns.

  • event returns an event object that identifies this particular copy command and can be used to query or queue a wait for this particular command to complete. event can be NULL in which case it will not be possible for the application to query the status of this command or queue a wait for this command to complete. clEnqueueBarrierWithWaitList can be used instead. If the event_wait_list and the event arguments are not NULL, the event argument should not refer to an element of the event_wait_list array.

Description

It is currently a requirement that the src_image and dst_image image memory objects for clEnqueueCopyImage must have the exact same image format (i.e. the cl_image_format descriptor specified when src_image and dst_image are created must match).

clEnqueueCopyImage returns CL_​SUCCESS if the function is executed successfully. Otherwise, it returns one of the following errors:

  • CL_​INVALID_​COMMAND_​QUEUE if command_queue is not a valid host command-queue.

  • CL_​INVALID_​CONTEXT if the context associated with command_queue, src_image and dst_image are not the same or if the context associated with command_queue and events in event_wait_list are not the same.

  • CL_​INVALID_​MEM_​OBJECT if src_image and dst_image are not valid image objects.

  • CL_​IMAGE_​FORMAT_​MISMATCH if src_image and dst_image do not use the same image format.

  • CL_​INVALID_​VALUE if the 2D or 3D rectangular region specified by src_origin and src_origin + region refers to a region outside src_image, or if the 2D or 3D rectangular region specified by dst_origin and dst_origin + region refers to a region outside dst_image.

  • CL_​INVALID_​VALUE if values in src_origin, dst_origin and region do not follow rules described in the argument description for src_origin, dst_origin and region.

  • CL_​INVALID_​EVENT_​WAIT_​LIST if event_wait_list is NULL and num_events_in_wait_list > 0, or event_wait_list is not NULL and num_events_in_wait_list is 0, or if event objects in event_wait_list are not valid events.

  • CL_​INVALID_​IMAGE_​SIZE if image dimensions (image width, height, specified or compute row and/or slice pitch) for src_image or dst_image are not supported by device associated with queue.

  • CL_​IMAGE_​FORMAT_​NOT_​SUPPORTED if image format (image channel order and data type) for src_image or dst_image are not supported by device associated with queue.

  • CL_​MEM_​OBJECT_​ALLOCATION_​FAILURE if there is a failure to allocate memory for data store associated with src_image or dst_image.

  • CL_​OUT_​OF_​RESOURCES if there is a failure to allocate resources required by the OpenCL implementation on the device.

  • CL_​OUT_​OF_​HOST_​MEMORY if there is a failure to allocate resources required by the OpenCL implementation on the host.

  • CL_​INVALID_​OPERATION if the device associated with command_queue does not support images (i.e. CL_​DEVICE_​IMAGE_​SUPPORT specified in the Device Queries table is CL_​FALSE).

  • CL_​MEM_​COPY_​OVERLAP if src_image and dst_image are the same image object and the source and destination regions overlap.
