C Specification

If a pipeline state object is created with VK_DYNAMIC_STATE_VIEWPORT_SHADING_RATE_PALETTE_NV enabled, the per-viewport shading rate image palettes are set by the command:

void vkCmdSetViewportShadingRatePaletteNV(
    VkCommandBuffer                             commandBuffer,
    uint32_t                                    firstViewport,
    uint32_t                                    viewportCount,
    const VkShadingRatePaletteNV*               pShadingRatePalettes);


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

  • firstViewport is the index of the first viewport whose shading rate palette is updated by the command.

  • viewportCount is the number of viewports whose shading rate palettes are updated by the command.

  • pShadingRatePalettes is a pointer to an array of VkShadingRatePaletteNV structures defining the palette for each viewport.


Valid Usage
  • The shading rate image feature must be enabled

  • firstViewport must be less than VkPhysicalDeviceLimits::maxViewports

  • The sum of firstViewport and viewportCount must be between 1 and VkPhysicalDeviceLimits::maxViewports, inclusive

  • If the multiple viewports feature is not enabled, firstViewport must be 0

  • If the multiple viewports feature is not enabled, viewportCount must be 1

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

  • pShadingRatePalettes must be a valid pointer to an array of viewportCount valid VkShadingRatePaletteNV structures

  • commandBuffer must be in the recording state

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

  • viewportCount must be greater than 0

Host Synchronization
  • Host access to commandBuffer must be externally synchronized

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