C Specification

The VkRayTracingShaderGroupCreateInfoNV structure is defined as:

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

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 VkRayTracingPipelineCreateInfoNV::pStages in the group if the shader group has type of VK_RAY_TRACING_SHADER_GROUP_TYPE_GENERAL_NV, and VK_SHADER_UNUSED_NV otherwise.

  • closestHitShader is the optional index of the closest hit shader from VkRayTracingPipelineCreateInfoNV::pStages in the group if the shader group has type of VK_RAY_TRACING_SHADER_GROUP_TYPE_TRIANGLES_HIT_GROUP_NV or VK_RAY_TRACING_SHADER_GROUP_TYPE_PROCEDURAL_HIT_GROUP_NV, and VK_SHADER_UNUSED_NV otherwise.

  • anyHitShader is the optional index of the any-hit shader from VkRayTracingPipelineCreateInfoNV::pStages in the group if the shader group has type of VK_RAY_TRACING_SHADER_GROUP_TYPE_TRIANGLES_HIT_GROUP_NV or VK_RAY_TRACING_SHADER_GROUP_TYPE_PROCEDURAL_HIT_GROUP_NV, and VK_SHADER_UNUSED_NV otherwise.

  • intersectionShader is the index of the intersection shader from VkRayTracingPipelineCreateInfoNV::pStages in the group if the shader group has type of VK_RAY_TRACING_SHADER_GROUP_TYPE_PROCEDURAL_HIT_GROUP_NV, and VK_SHADER_UNUSED_NV otherwise.

Description

Valid Usage
  • VUID-VkRayTracingShaderGroupCreateInfoNV-type-02413
    If type is VK_RAY_TRACING_SHADER_GROUP_TYPE_GENERAL_NV then generalShader must be a valid index into VkRayTracingPipelineCreateInfoNV::pStages referring to a shader of VK_SHADER_STAGE_RAYGEN_BIT_NV, VK_SHADER_STAGE_MISS_BIT_NV, or VK_SHADER_STAGE_CALLABLE_BIT_NV

  • VUID-VkRayTracingShaderGroupCreateInfoNV-type-02414
    If type is VK_RAY_TRACING_SHADER_GROUP_TYPE_GENERAL_NV then closestHitShader, anyHitShader, and intersectionShader must be VK_SHADER_UNUSED_NV

  • VUID-VkRayTracingShaderGroupCreateInfoNV-type-02415
    If type is VK_RAY_TRACING_SHADER_GROUP_TYPE_PROCEDURAL_HIT_GROUP_NV then intersectionShader must be a valid index into VkRayTracingPipelineCreateInfoNV::pStages referring to a shader of VK_SHADER_STAGE_INTERSECTION_BIT_NV

  • VUID-VkRayTracingShaderGroupCreateInfoNV-type-02416
    If type is VK_RAY_TRACING_SHADER_GROUP_TYPE_TRIANGLES_HIT_GROUP_NV then intersectionShader must be VK_SHADER_UNUSED_NV

  • VUID-VkRayTracingShaderGroupCreateInfoNV-closestHitShader-02417
    closestHitShader must be either VK_SHADER_UNUSED_NV or a valid index into VkRayTracingPipelineCreateInfoNV::pStages referring to a shader of VK_SHADER_STAGE_CLOSEST_HIT_BIT_NV

  • VUID-VkRayTracingShaderGroupCreateInfoNV-anyHitShader-02418
    anyHitShader must be either VK_SHADER_UNUSED_NV or a valid index into VkRayTracingPipelineCreateInfoNV::pStages referring to a shader of VK_SHADER_STAGE_ANY_HIT_BIT_NV

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkRayTracingShaderGroupCreateInfoNV-sType-sType
    sType must be VK_STRUCTURE_TYPE_RAY_TRACING_SHADER_GROUP_CREATE_INFO_NV

  • VUID-VkRayTracingShaderGroupCreateInfoNV-pNext-pNext
    pNext must be NULL

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