C Specification

The VkRenderPassAttachmentBeginInfo structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_2
typedef struct VkRenderPassAttachmentBeginInfo {
    VkStructureType       sType;
    const void*           pNext;
    uint32_t              attachmentCount;
    const VkImageView*    pAttachments;
} VkRenderPassAttachmentBeginInfo;

or the equivalent

// Provided by VK_KHR_imageless_framebuffer
typedef VkRenderPassAttachmentBeginInfo VkRenderPassAttachmentBeginInfoKHR;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • attachmentCount is the number of attachments.

  • pAttachments is a pointer to an array of VkImageView handles, each of which will be used as the corresponding attachment in the render pass instance.


Valid Usage
  • Each element of pAttachments must only specify a single mip level

  • Each element of pAttachments must have been created with the identity swizzle

  • Each element of pAttachments must have been created with VkImageViewCreateInfo::viewType not equal to VK_IMAGE_VIEW_TYPE_3D

Valid Usage (Implicit)

  • If attachmentCount is not 0, pAttachments must be a valid pointer to an array of attachmentCount valid VkImageView handles
