C Specification

The actual generation on the device is handled with:

void vkCmdProcessCommandsNVX(
    VkCommandBuffer                             commandBuffer,
    const VkCmdProcessCommandsInfoNVX*          pProcessCommandsInfo);


  • commandBuffer is the primary command buffer in which the generation process takes space.

  • pProcessCommandsInfo is a pointer to a VkCmdProcessCommandsInfoNVX structure containing parameters affecting the processing of commands.


Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • commandBuffer must be a valid VkCommandBuffer handle

  • pProcessCommandsInfo must be a valid pointer to a valid VkCmdProcessCommandsInfoNVX structure

  • commandBuffer must be in the recording state

  • The VkCommandPool that commandBuffer was allocated from must support graphics, or compute operations

  • This command must only be called inside of a render pass instance

Host Synchronization
  • Host access to commandBuffer must be externally synchronized

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