To create an image view, call:
VkResult vkCreateImageView( VkDevice device, const VkImageViewCreateInfo* pCreateInfo, const VkAllocationCallbacks* pAllocator, VkImageView* pView);
deviceis the logical device that creates the image view.
pCreateInfois a pointer to an instance of the
VkImageViewCreateInfostructure containing parameters to be used to create the image view.
pAllocatorcontrols host memory allocation as described in the Memory Allocation chapter.
pViewpoints to a VkImageView handle in which the resulting image view object is returned.
Some of the image creation parameters are inherited by the view.
In particular, image view creation inherits the implicit parameter
usage specifying the allowed usages of the image view that, by
default, takes the value of the corresponding
VkImageCreateInfo at image creation time
, except if the image has a depth-stencil format,
subresourceRange.aspectMask specified in the
VK_IMAGE_ASPECT_STENCIL_BIT, and the
VkImageCreateInfo specified at image creation time contained
an instance of VkImageStencilUsageCreateInfoEXT in which case it takes
the value of the
stencilUsage member of that structure
This implicit parameter can be overriden by chaining a
VkImageViewUsageCreateInfo structure through the
pNext member to
VkImageViewCreateInfo as described later in this section.
The remaining parameters are contained in the
