C Specification

Bits which can be set in VkIndirectCommandsLayoutCreateInfoNV::flags, specifying usage hints of an indirect command layout, are:

// Provided by VK_NV_device_generated_commands
typedef enum VkIndirectCommandsLayoutUsageFlagBitsNV {
} VkIndirectCommandsLayoutUsageFlagBitsNV;


  • VK_INDIRECT_COMMANDS_LAYOUT_USAGE_EXPLICIT_PREPROCESS_BIT_NV specifies that the layout is always used with the manual preprocessing step through calling vkCmdPreprocessGeneratedCommandsNV and executed by vkCmdExecuteGeneratedCommandsNV with isPreprocessed set to VK_TRUE.

  • VK_INDIRECT_COMMANDS_LAYOUT_USAGE_INDEXED_SEQUENCES_BIT_NV specifies that the input data for the sequences is not implicitly indexed from 0..sequencesUsed but a user provided VkBuffer encoding the index is provided.

  • VK_INDIRECT_COMMANDS_LAYOUT_USAGE_UNORDERED_SEQUENCES_BIT_NV specifies that the processing of sequences can happen at an implementation-dependent order, which is not: guaranteed to be coherent using the same input data.
