C Specification

The VkClearValue union is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_0
typedef union VkClearValue {
    VkClearColorValue           color;
    VkClearDepthStencilValue    depthStencil;
} VkClearValue;


  • color specifies the color image clear values to use when clearing a color image or attachment.

  • depthStencil specifies the depth and stencil clear values to use when clearing a depth/stencil image or attachment.


This union is used where part of the API requires either color or depth/stencil clear values, depending on the attachment, and defines the initial clear values in the VkRenderPassBeginInfo structure.
