C Specification

The VkAccelerationStructureGeometryKHR structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_KHR_ray_tracing
typedef struct VkAccelerationStructureGeometryKHR {
    VkStructureType                           sType;
    const void*                               pNext;
    VkGeometryTypeKHR                         geometryType;
    VkAccelerationStructureGeometryDataKHR    geometry;
    VkGeometryFlagsKHR                        flags;
} VkAccelerationStructureGeometryKHR;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • geometryType describes which type of geometry this VkAccelerationStructureGeometryKHR refers to.

  • geometry is a VkAccelerationStructureGeometryDataKHR union describing the geometry data for the relevant geometry type.

  • flags is a bitmask of VkGeometryFlagBitsKHR values describing additional properties of how the geometry should be built.
