Description

This extension provides a new entry point to create render passes in a way that can be easily extended by other extensions through the substructures of render pass creation. The Vulkan 1.0 render pass creation sub-structures do not include sType/pNext members. Additionally, the renderpass begin/next/end commands have been augmented with new extensible structures for passing additional subpass information.

The VkRenderPassMultiviewCreateInfo and VkInputAttachmentAspectReference structures that extended the original VkRenderPassCreateInfo are not accepted into the new creation functions, and instead their parameters are folded into this extension as follows:

The details of these mappings are explained fully in the new structures.

Promotion to Vulkan 1.2

All functionality in this extension is included in core Vulkan 1.2, with the KHR suffix omitted. The original type, enum and command names are still available as aliases of the core functionality.
