C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceMultiviewFeatures structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_1
typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceMultiviewFeatures {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkBool32           multiview;
    VkBool32           multiviewGeometryShader;
    VkBool32           multiviewTessellationShader;
} VkPhysicalDeviceMultiviewFeatures;

or the equivalent

// Provided by VK_KHR_multiview
typedef VkPhysicalDeviceMultiviewFeatures VkPhysicalDeviceMultiviewFeaturesKHR;

Members

The members of the VkPhysicalDeviceMultiviewFeatures structure describe the following features:

Description

  • multiview specifies whether the implementation supports multiview rendering within a render pass. If this feature is not enabled, the view mask of each subpass must always be zero.

  • multiviewGeometryShader specifies whether the implementation supports multiview rendering within a render pass, with geometry shaders. If this feature is not enabled, then a pipeline compiled against a subpass with a non-zero view mask must not include a geometry shader.

  • multiviewTessellationShader specifies whether the implementation supports multiview rendering within a render pass, with tessellation shaders. If this feature is not enabled, then a pipeline compiled against a subpass with a non-zero view mask must not include any tessellation shaders.

If the VkPhysicalDeviceMultiviewFeatures structure is included in the pNext chain of VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures2, it is filled with values indicating whether each feature is supported. VkPhysicalDeviceMultiviewFeatures can also be included in the pNext chain of VkDeviceCreateInfo to enable the features.

Valid Usage
  • VUID-VkPhysicalDeviceMultiviewFeatures-multiviewGeometryShader-00580
    If multiviewGeometryShader is enabled then multiview must also be enabled

  • VUID-VkPhysicalDeviceMultiviewFeatures-multiviewTessellationShader-00581
    If multiviewTessellationShader is enabled then multiview must also be enabled

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkPhysicalDeviceMultiviewFeatures-sType-sType
    sType must be VK_STRUCTURE_TYPE_PHYSICAL_DEVICE_MULTIVIEW_FEATURES
