C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceBlendOperationAdvancedPropertiesEXT structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_EXT_blend_operation_advanced
typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceBlendOperationAdvancedPropertiesEXT {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    uint32_t           advancedBlendMaxColorAttachments;
    VkBool32           advancedBlendIndependentBlend;
    VkBool32           advancedBlendNonPremultipliedSrcColor;
    VkBool32           advancedBlendNonPremultipliedDstColor;
    VkBool32           advancedBlendCorrelatedOverlap;
    VkBool32           advancedBlendAllOperations;
} VkPhysicalDeviceBlendOperationAdvancedPropertiesEXT;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • advancedBlendMaxColorAttachments is one greater than the highest color attachment index that can be used in a subpass, for a pipeline that uses an advanced blend operation.

  • advancedBlendIndependentBlend specifies whether advanced blend operations can vary per-attachment.

  • advancedBlendNonPremultipliedSrcColor specifies whether the source color can be treated as non-premultiplied. If this is VK_FALSE, then VkPipelineColorBlendAdvancedStateCreateInfoEXT::srcPremultiplied must be VK_TRUE.

  • advancedBlendNonPremultipliedDstColor specifies whether the destination color can be treated as non-premultiplied. If this is VK_FALSE, then VkPipelineColorBlendAdvancedStateCreateInfoEXT::dstPremultiplied must be VK_TRUE.

  • advancedBlendCorrelatedOverlap specifies whether the overlap mode can be treated as correlated. If this is VK_FALSE, then VkPipelineColorBlendAdvancedStateCreateInfoEXT::blendOverlap must be VK_BLEND_OVERLAP_UNCORRELATED_EXT.

  • advancedBlendAllOperations specifies whether all advanced blend operation enums are supported. See the valid usage of VkPipelineColorBlendAttachmentState.


If the VkPhysicalDeviceBlendOperationAdvancedPropertiesEXT structure is included in the pNext chain of the VkPhysicalDeviceProperties2 structure passed to vkGetPhysicalDeviceProperties2, it is filled in with the corresponding implementation-dependent properties.

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