C Specification

The VkImageSubresourceLayers structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_0
typedef struct VkImageSubresourceLayers {
    VkImageAspectFlags    aspectMask;
    uint32_t              mipLevel;
    uint32_t              baseArrayLayer;
    uint32_t              layerCount;
} VkImageSubresourceLayers;


  • aspectMask is a combination of VkImageAspectFlagBits, selecting the color, depth and/or stencil aspects to be copied.

  • mipLevel is the mipmap level to copy

  • baseArrayLayer and layerCount are the starting layer and number of layers to copy.


Valid Usage
  • VUID-VkImageSubresourceLayers-aspectMask-00167
    If aspectMask contains VK_IMAGE_ASPECT_COLOR_BIT, it must not contain either of VK_IMAGE_ASPECT_DEPTH_BIT or VK_IMAGE_ASPECT_STENCIL_BIT

  • VUID-VkImageSubresourceLayers-aspectMask-00168
    aspectMask must not contain VK_IMAGE_ASPECT_METADATA_BIT

  • VUID-VkImageSubresourceLayers-aspectMask-02247
    aspectMask must not include VK_IMAGE_ASPECT_MEMORY_PLANE_i_BIT_EXT for any index i

  • VUID-VkImageSubresourceLayers-layerCount-09243
    layerCount must not be VK_REMAINING_ARRAY_LAYERS

  • VUID-VkImageSubresourceLayers-layerCount-01700
    If layerCount is not VK_REMAINING_ARRAY_LAYERS, it must be greater than 0

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkImageSubresourceLayers-aspectMask-parameter
    aspectMask must be a valid combination of VkImageAspectFlagBits values

  • VUID-VkImageSubresourceLayers-aspectMask-requiredbitmask
    aspectMask must not be 0
