C Specification

In order to bind planes of a disjoint image, add a VkBindImagePlaneMemoryInfo structure to the pNext chain of VkBindImageMemoryInfo.

The VkBindImagePlaneMemoryInfo structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_1
typedef struct VkBindImagePlaneMemoryInfo {
    VkStructureType          sType;
    const void*              pNext;
    VkImageAspectFlagBits    planeAspect;
} VkBindImagePlaneMemoryInfo;

or the equivalent

// Provided by VK_KHR_sampler_ycbcr_conversion
typedef VkBindImagePlaneMemoryInfo VkBindImagePlaneMemoryInfoKHR;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

  • pNext is NULL or a pointer to a structure extending this structure.

  • planeAspect is a VkImageAspectFlagBits value specifying the aspect of the disjoint image plane to bind.


Valid Usage
  • VUID-VkBindImagePlaneMemoryInfo-planeAspect-02283
    If the image’s tiling is VK_IMAGE_TILING_LINEAR or VK_IMAGE_TILING_OPTIMAL, then planeAspect must be a single valid format plane for the image (that is, for a two-plane image planeAspect must be VK_IMAGE_ASPECT_PLANE_0_BIT or VK_IMAGE_ASPECT_PLANE_1_BIT, and for a three-plane image planeAspect must be VK_IMAGE_ASPECT_PLANE_0_BIT, VK_IMAGE_ASPECT_PLANE_1_BIT or VK_IMAGE_ASPECT_PLANE_2_BIT)

  • VUID-VkBindImagePlaneMemoryInfo-planeAspect-02284
    If the image’s tiling is VK_IMAGE_TILING_DRM_FORMAT_MODIFIER_EXT, then planeAspect must be a single valid memory plane for the image (that is, aspectMask must specify a plane index that is less than the VkDrmFormatModifierPropertiesEXT::drmFormatModifierPlaneCount associated with the image’s format and VkImageDrmFormatModifierPropertiesEXT::drmFormatModifier)

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkBindImagePlaneMemoryInfo-sType-sType

  • VUID-VkBindImagePlaneMemoryInfo-planeAspect-parameter
    planeAspect must be a valid VkImageAspectFlagBits value
