C Specification

The VkAccelerationStructureGeometryInstancesDataKHR structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_KHR_acceleration_structure
typedef struct VkAccelerationStructureGeometryInstancesDataKHR {
    VkStructureType                  sType;
    const void*                      pNext;
    VkBool32                         arrayOfPointers;
    VkDeviceOrHostAddressConstKHR    data;
} VkAccelerationStructureGeometryInstancesDataKHR;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

  • pNext is NULL or a pointer to a structure extending this structure.

  • arrayOfPointers specifies whether data is used as an array of addresses or just an array.

  • data is either the address of an array of device or host addresses referencing individual VkAccelerationStructureInstanceKHR structures if arrayOfPointers is VK_TRUE, or the address of an array of VkAccelerationStructureInstanceKHR structures.


Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkAccelerationStructureGeometryInstancesDataKHR-sType-sType

  • VUID-VkAccelerationStructureGeometryInstancesDataKHR-pNext-pNext
    pNext must be NULL
