Description

This extension allows framebuffers to be created without the need for creating images first, allowing more flexibility in how they are used, and avoiding the need for many of the confusing compatibility rules.

Framebuffers are now created with a small amount of additional metadata about the image views that will be used in VkFramebufferAttachmentsCreateInfoKHR, and the actual image views are provided at render pass begin time via VkRenderPassAttachmentBeginInfoKHR.

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.

New Enum Constants

  • VK_KHR_IMAGELESS_FRAMEBUFFER_EXTENSION_NAME

  • VK_KHR_IMAGELESS_FRAMEBUFFER_SPEC_VERSION

  • Extending VkFramebufferCreateFlagBits:

    • VK_FRAMEBUFFER_CREATE_IMAGELESS_BIT_KHR

  • Extending VkStructureType:

    • VK_STRUCTURE_TYPE_FRAMEBUFFER_ATTACHMENTS_CREATE_INFO_KHR
