C Specification

The VkRayTracingShaderGroupCreateInfoKHR structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_KHR_ray_tracing_pipeline
typedef struct VkRayTracingShaderGroupCreateInfoKHR {
    VkStructureType                   sType;
    const void*                       pNext;
    VkRayTracingShaderGroupTypeKHR    type;
    uint32_t                          generalShader;
    uint32_t                          closestHitShader;
    uint32_t                          anyHitShader;
    uint32_t                          intersectionShader;
    const void*                       pShaderGroupCaptureReplayHandle;
} VkRayTracingShaderGroupCreateInfoKHR;

Members

  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • type is the type of hit group specified in this structure.

  • generalShader is the index of the ray generation, miss, or callable shader from VkRayTracingPipelineCreateInfoKHR::pStages in the group if the shader group has type of VK_RAY_TRACING_SHADER_GROUP_TYPE_GENERAL_KHR, and VK_SHADER_UNUSED_KHR otherwise.

  • closestHitShader is the optional index of the closest hit shader from VkRayTracingPipelineCreateInfoKHR::pStages in the group if the shader group has type of VK_RAY_TRACING_SHADER_GROUP_TYPE_TRIANGLES_HIT_GROUP_KHR or VK_RAY_TRACING_SHADER_GROUP_TYPE_PROCEDURAL_HIT_GROUP_KHR, and VK_SHADER_UNUSED_KHR otherwise.

  • anyHitShader is the optional index of the any-hit shader from VkRayTracingPipelineCreateInfoKHR::pStages in the group if the shader group has type of VK_RAY_TRACING_SHADER_GROUP_TYPE_TRIANGLES_HIT_GROUP_KHR or VK_RAY_TRACING_SHADER_GROUP_TYPE_PROCEDURAL_HIT_GROUP_KHR, and VK_SHADER_UNUSED_KHR otherwise.

  • intersectionShader is the index of the intersection shader from VkRayTracingPipelineCreateInfoKHR::pStages in the group if the shader group has type of VK_RAY_TRACING_SHADER_GROUP_TYPE_PROCEDURAL_HIT_GROUP_KHR, and VK_SHADER_UNUSED_KHR otherwise.

  • pShaderGroupCaptureReplayHandle is NULL or a pointer to replay information for this shader group. Ignored if VkPhysicalDeviceRayTracingPipelineFeaturesKHR::rayTracingPipelineShaderGroupHandleCaptureReplay is VK_FALSE.

Description

Valid Usage
  • VUID-VkRayTracingShaderGroupCreateInfoKHR-type-03474
    If type is VK_RAY_TRACING_SHADER_GROUP_TYPE_GENERAL_KHR then generalShader must be a valid index into VkRayTracingPipelineCreateInfoKHR::pStages referring to a shader of VK_SHADER_STAGE_RAYGEN_BIT_KHR, VK_SHADER_STAGE_MISS_BIT_KHR, or VK_SHADER_STAGE_CALLABLE_BIT_KHR

  • VUID-VkRayTracingShaderGroupCreateInfoKHR-type-03475
    If type is VK_RAY_TRACING_SHADER_GROUP_TYPE_GENERAL_KHR then closestHitShader, anyHitShader, and intersectionShader must be VK_SHADER_UNUSED_KHR

  • VUID-VkRayTracingShaderGroupCreateInfoKHR-type-03476
    If type is VK_RAY_TRACING_SHADER_GROUP_TYPE_PROCEDURAL_HIT_GROUP_KHR then intersectionShader must be a valid index into VkRayTracingPipelineCreateInfoKHR::pStages referring to a shader of VK_SHADER_STAGE_INTERSECTION_BIT_KHR

  • VUID-VkRayTracingShaderGroupCreateInfoKHR-type-03477
    If type is VK_RAY_TRACING_SHADER_GROUP_TYPE_TRIANGLES_HIT_GROUP_KHR then intersectionShader must be VK_SHADER_UNUSED_KHR

  • VUID-VkRayTracingShaderGroupCreateInfoKHR-closestHitShader-03478
    closestHitShader must be either VK_SHADER_UNUSED_KHR or a valid index into VkRayTracingPipelineCreateInfoKHR::pStages referring to a shader of VK_SHADER_STAGE_CLOSEST_HIT_BIT_KHR

  • VUID-VkRayTracingShaderGroupCreateInfoKHR-anyHitShader-03479
    anyHitShader must be either VK_SHADER_UNUSED_KHR or a valid index into VkRayTracingPipelineCreateInfoKHR::pStages referring to a shader of VK_SHADER_STAGE_ANY_HIT_BIT_KHR

  • VUID-VkRayTracingShaderGroupCreateInfoKHR-rayTracingPipelineShaderGroupHandleCaptureReplayMixed-03603
    If VkPhysicalDeviceRayTracingPipelineFeaturesKHR::rayTracingPipelineShaderGroupHandleCaptureReplayMixed is VK_FALSE then pShaderGroupCaptureReplayHandle must not be provided if it has not been provided on a previous call to ray tracing pipeline creation

  • VUID-VkRayTracingShaderGroupCreateInfoKHR-rayTracingPipelineShaderGroupHandleCaptureReplayMixed-03604
    If VkPhysicalDeviceRayTracingPipelineFeaturesKHR::rayTracingPipelineShaderGroupHandleCaptureReplayMixed is VK_FALSE then the caller must guarantee that no ray tracing pipeline creation commands with pShaderGroupCaptureReplayHandle provided execute simultaneously with ray tracing pipeline creation commands without pShaderGroupCaptureReplayHandle provided

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkRayTracingShaderGroupCreateInfoKHR-sType-sType
    sType must be VK_STRUCTURE_TYPE_RAY_TRACING_SHADER_GROUP_CREATE_INFO_KHR

  • VUID-VkRayTracingShaderGroupCreateInfoKHR-pNext-pNext
    pNext must be NULL

  • VUID-VkRayTracingShaderGroupCreateInfoKHR-type-parameter
    type must be a valid VkRayTracingShaderGroupTypeKHR value
