C Specification

Additional parameters of a semaphore import operation are specified by VkImportSemaphoreWin32HandleInfoKHR::flags or VkImportSemaphoreFdInfoKHR::flags VkImportSemaphoreZirconHandleInfoFUCHSIA::flags . Bits which can be set include:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_1
typedef enum VkSemaphoreImportFlagBits {
  // Provided by VK_KHR_external_semaphore
} VkSemaphoreImportFlagBits;

or the equivalent

// Provided by VK_KHR_external_semaphore
typedef VkSemaphoreImportFlagBits VkSemaphoreImportFlagBitsKHR;


These bits have the following meanings:

  • VK_SEMAPHORE_IMPORT_TEMPORARY_BIT specifies that the semaphore payload will be imported only temporarily, as described in Importing Semaphore Payloads, regardless of the permanence of handleType.
