C Specification

Possible values of VkPipelineCoverageReductionStateCreateInfoNV::coverageReductionMode, specifying how color sample coverage is generated from pixel coverage, are:

// Provided by VK_NV_coverage_reduction_mode
typedef enum VkCoverageReductionModeNV {
} VkCoverageReductionModeNV;


  • VK_COVERAGE_REDUCTION_MODE_MERGE_NV specifies that each color sample will be associated with an implementation-dependent subset of samples in the pixel coverage. If any of those associated samples are covered, the color sample is covered.

  • VK_COVERAGE_REDUCTION_MODE_TRUNCATE_NV specifies that for color samples present in the color attachments, a color sample is covered if the pixel coverage sample with the same sample index i is covered; other pixel coverage samples are discarded.
