An acceleration structure has memory requirements for the structure object itself, scratch space for the build, and scratch space for the update.
Scratch space is allocated as a
VkBuffer, so for
pMemoryRequirements->memoryTypeBits values returned by this call must
be filled with zero, and should be ignored by the application.
To query the memory requirements call:
void vkGetAccelerationStructureMemoryRequirementsNV( VkDevice device, const VkAccelerationStructureMemoryRequirementsInfoNV* pInfo, VkMemoryRequirements2KHR* pMemoryRequirements);
deviceis the logical device on which the acceleration structure was created.
pInfospecifies the acceleration structure to get memory requirements for.
pMemoryRequirementsreturns the requested acceleration structure memory requirements.
