C Specification

Geometry types are specified by VkGeometryTypeKHR, which takes values:

typedef enum VkGeometryTypeKHR {
    VK_GEOMETRY_TYPE_TRIANGLES_KHR = 0,
    VK_GEOMETRY_TYPE_AABBS_KHR = 1,
    VK_GEOMETRY_TYPE_INSTANCES_KHR = 1000150000,
    VK_GEOMETRY_TYPE_TRIANGLES_NV = VK_GEOMETRY_TYPE_TRIANGLES_KHR,
    VK_GEOMETRY_TYPE_AABBS_NV = VK_GEOMETRY_TYPE_AABBS_KHR,
} VkGeometryTypeKHR;

or the equivalent

typedef VkGeometryTypeKHR VkGeometryTypeNV;

Description

  • VK_GEOMETRY_TYPE_TRIANGLES_KHR specifies a geometry type consisting of triangles.

  • VK_GEOMETRY_TYPE_AABBS_KHR specifies a geometry type consisting of axis-aligned bounding boxes.

  • VK_GEOMETRY_TYPE_INSTANCES_KHR specifies a geometry type consisting of acceleration structure instances.
