C Specification

If an image was created with VK_IMAGE_TILING_DRM_FORMAT_MODIFIER_EXT, then the image has a Linux DRM format modifier. To query the modifier, call:

VkResult vkGetImageDrmFormatModifierPropertiesEXT(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    VkImage                                     image,
    VkImageDrmFormatModifierPropertiesEXT*      pProperties);


  • device is the logical device that owns the image.

  • image is the queried image.

  • pProperties will return properties of the image’s DRM format modifier.


Valid Usage
  • image must have been created with tiling equal to VK_IMAGE_TILING_DRM_FORMAT_MODIFIER_EXT.

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • device must be a valid VkDevice handle

  • image must be a valid VkImage handle

  • pProperties must be a valid pointer to a VkImageDrmFormatModifierPropertiesEXT structure

  • image must have been created, allocated, or retrieved from device
