C Specification

To apply dynamic controls to video decode or video operations, call:

// Provided by VK_KHR_video_queue
void vkCmdControlVideoCodingKHR(
    VkCommandBuffer                             commandBuffer,
    const VkVideoCodingControlInfoKHR*          pCodingControlInfo);


  • commandBuffer is the command buffer to be filled by this function for setting encode rate control parameters.

  • pCodingControlInfo is a pointer to VkVideoCodingControlInfoKHR.


Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-vkCmdControlVideoCodingKHR-commandBuffer-parameter
    commandBuffer must be a valid VkCommandBuffer handle

  • VUID-vkCmdControlVideoCodingKHR-pCodingControlInfo-parameter
    pCodingControlInfo must be a valid pointer to a valid VkVideoCodingControlInfoKHR structure

  • VUID-vkCmdControlVideoCodingKHR-commandBuffer-recording
    commandBuffer must be in the recording state

  • VUID-vkCmdControlVideoCodingKHR-commandBuffer-cmdpool
    The VkCommandPool that commandBuffer was allocated from must support decode, or encode operations

  • VUID-vkCmdControlVideoCodingKHR-renderpass
    This command must only be called outside of a render pass instance

  • VUID-vkCmdControlVideoCodingKHR-bufferlevel
    commandBuffer must be a primary VkCommandBuffer

Host Synchronization
  • Host access to the VkCommandPool that commandBuffer was allocated from must be externally synchronized
