C Specification

Reduction modes are specified by VkSamplerReductionMode, which takes values:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_2
typedef enum VkSamplerReductionMode {
    VK_SAMPLER_REDUCTION_MODE_WEIGHTED_AVERAGE = 0,
    VK_SAMPLER_REDUCTION_MODE_MIN = 1,
    VK_SAMPLER_REDUCTION_MODE_MAX = 2,
  // Provided by VK_EXT_sampler_filter_minmax
    VK_SAMPLER_REDUCTION_MODE_WEIGHTED_AVERAGE_EXT = VK_SAMPLER_REDUCTION_MODE_WEIGHTED_AVERAGE,
  // Provided by VK_EXT_sampler_filter_minmax
    VK_SAMPLER_REDUCTION_MODE_MIN_EXT = VK_SAMPLER_REDUCTION_MODE_MIN,
  // Provided by VK_EXT_sampler_filter_minmax
    VK_SAMPLER_REDUCTION_MODE_MAX_EXT = VK_SAMPLER_REDUCTION_MODE_MAX,
} VkSamplerReductionMode;

or the equivalent

// Provided by VK_EXT_sampler_filter_minmax
typedef VkSamplerReductionMode VkSamplerReductionModeEXT;

Description

  • VK_SAMPLER_REDUCTION_MODE_WEIGHTED_AVERAGE specifies that texel values are combined by computing a weighted average of values in the footprint, using weights as specified in the image operations chapter.

  • VK_SAMPLER_REDUCTION_MODE_MIN specifies that texel values are combined by taking the component-wise minimum of values in the footprint with non-zero weights.

  • VK_SAMPLER_REDUCTION_MODE_MAX specifies that texel values are combined by taking the component-wise maximum of values in the footprint with non-zero weights.
