C Specification

To clear one or more subranges of a color image, call:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_0
void vkCmdClearColorImage(
    VkCommandBuffer                             commandBuffer,
    VkImage                                     image,
    VkImageLayout                               imageLayout,
    const VkClearColorValue*                    pColor,
    uint32_t                                    rangeCount,
    const VkImageSubresourceRange*              pRanges);

Parameters

  • commandBuffer is the command buffer into which the command will be recorded.

  • image is the image to be cleared.

  • imageLayout specifies the current layout of the image subresource ranges to be cleared, and must be VK_IMAGE_LAYOUT_SHARED_PRESENT_KHR, VK_IMAGE_LAYOUT_GENERAL or VK_IMAGE_LAYOUT_TRANSFER_DST_OPTIMAL.

  • pColor is a pointer to a VkClearColorValue structure containing the values that the image subresource ranges will be cleared to (see https://www.khronos.org/registry/vulkan/specs/1.2-extensions/html/vkspec.html#clears-values below).

  • rangeCount is the number of image subresource range structures in pRanges.

  • pRanges is a pointer to an array of VkImageSubresourceRange structures describing a range of mipmap levels, array layers, and aspects to be cleared, as described in Image Views.

Description

Each specified range in pRanges is cleared to the value specified by pColor.

    The VkImageSubresourceRange::aspectMask members of the elements of the pRanges array must each only include VK_IMAGE_ASPECT_COLOR_BIT

  • VUID-vkCmdClearColorImage-baseMipLevel-01470
    The VkImageSubresourceRange::baseMipLevel members of the elements of the pRanges array must each be less than the mipLevels specified in VkImageCreateInfo when image was created

  • VUID-vkCmdClearColorImage-pRanges-01692
    For each VkImageSubresourceRange element of pRanges, if the levelCount member is not VK_REMAINING_MIP_LEVELS, then baseMipLevel + levelCount must be less than the mipLevels specified in VkImageCreateInfo when image was created

  • VUID-vkCmdClearColorImage-baseArrayLayer-01472
    The VkImageSubresourceRange::baseArrayLayer members of the elements of the pRanges array must each be less than the arrayLayers specified in VkImageCreateInfo when image was created

  • VUID-vkCmdClearColorImage-pRanges-01693
    For each VkImageSubresourceRange element of pRanges, if the layerCount member is not VK_REMAINING_ARRAY_LAYERS, then baseArrayLayer + layerCount must be less than the arrayLayers specified in VkImageCreateInfo when image was created

  • VUID-vkCmdClearColorImage-image-00007
