Description

This extension adds support for an exclusive scissor test to Vulkan. The exclusive scissor test behaves like the scissor test, except that the exclusive scissor test fails for pixels inside the corresponding rectangle and passes for pixels outside the rectangle. If the same rectangle is used for both the scissor and exclusive scissor tests, the exclusive scissor test will pass if and only if the scissor test fails.

Version 2 of this extension introduces VK_DYNAMIC_STATE_EXCLUSIVE_SCISSOR_ENABLE_NV and vkCmdSetExclusiveScissorEnableNV. Applications that use this dynamic state must ensure the implementation advertises at least specVersion 2 of this extension.

Issues

1) For the scissor test, the viewport state must be created with a matching number of scissor and viewport rectangles. Should we have the same requirement for exclusive scissors?

RESOLVED: For exclusive scissors, we relax this requirement and allow an exclusive scissor rectangle count that is either zero or equal to the number of viewport rectangles. If you pass in an exclusive scissor count of zero, the exclusive scissor test is treated as disabled.
