C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceSeparateDepthStencilLayoutsFeatures structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_2
typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceSeparateDepthStencilLayoutsFeatures {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkBool32           separateDepthStencilLayouts;
} VkPhysicalDeviceSeparateDepthStencilLayoutsFeatures;

or the equivalent

// Provided by VK_KHR_separate_depth_stencil_layouts
typedef VkPhysicalDeviceSeparateDepthStencilLayoutsFeatures VkPhysicalDeviceSeparateDepthStencilLayoutsFeaturesKHR;


This structure describes the following feature:


  • sType is the type of this structure.

  • pNext is NULL or a pointer to a structure extending this structure. :anchor-prefix: extension-

  • [[{anchor-prefix}features-separateDepthStencilLayouts]] separateDepthStencilLayouts indicates whether the implementation supports a VkImageMemoryBarrier for a depth/stencil image with only one of VK_IMAGE_ASPECT_DEPTH_BIT or VK_IMAGE_ASPECT_STENCIL_BIT set, and whether VK_IMAGE_LAYOUT_DEPTH_ATTACHMENT_OPTIMAL, VK_IMAGE_LAYOUT_DEPTH_READ_ONLY_OPTIMAL, VK_IMAGE_LAYOUT_STENCIL_ATTACHMENT_OPTIMAL, or VK_IMAGE_LAYOUT_STENCIL_READ_ONLY_OPTIMAL can be used.

If the VkPhysicalDeviceSeparateDepthStencilLayoutsFeatures structure is included in the pNext chain of the VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures2 structure passed to vkGetPhysicalDeviceFeatures2, it is filled in to indicate whether each corresponding feature is supported. VkPhysicalDeviceSeparateDepthStencilLayoutsFeatures can also be used in the pNext chain of VkDeviceCreateInfo to selectively enable these features.

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