C Specification

Bits which can be set in the vkCmdSetStencilCompareMask::faceMask parameter, and similar parameters of other commands specifying which stencil state to update stencil masks for, are:

typedef enum VkStencilFaceFlagBits {
    VK_STENCIL_FACE_FRONT_BIT = 0x00000001,
    VK_STENCIL_FACE_BACK_BIT = 0x00000002,
    VK_STENCIL_FRONT_AND_BACK = 0x00000003,
} VkStencilFaceFlagBits;


  • VK_STENCIL_FACE_FRONT_BIT specifies that only the front set of stencil state is updated.

  • VK_STENCIL_FACE_BACK_BIT specifies that only the back set of stencil state is updated.

  • VK_STENCIL_FRONT_AND_BACK is the combination of VK_STENCIL_FACE_FRONT_BIT and VK_STENCIL_FACE_BACK_BIT, and specifies that both sets of stencil state are updated.
