C Specification

Bits which can be set in vkCmdPipelineBarrier::dependencyFlags, specifying how execution and memory dependencies are formed, are:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_0
typedef enum VkDependencyFlagBits {
    VK_DEPENDENCY_BY_REGION_BIT = 0x00000001,
  // Provided by VK_VERSION_1_1
    VK_DEPENDENCY_DEVICE_GROUP_BIT = 0x00000004,
  // Provided by VK_VERSION_1_1
    VK_DEPENDENCY_VIEW_LOCAL_BIT = 0x00000002,
  // Provided by VK_EXT_attachment_feedback_loop_layout
    VK_DEPENDENCY_FEEDBACK_LOOP_BIT_EXT = 0x00000008,
  // Provided by VK_KHR_multiview
    VK_DEPENDENCY_VIEW_LOCAL_BIT_KHR = VK_DEPENDENCY_VIEW_LOCAL_BIT,
  // Provided by VK_KHR_device_group
    VK_DEPENDENCY_DEVICE_GROUP_BIT_KHR = VK_DEPENDENCY_DEVICE_GROUP_BIT,
} VkDependencyFlagBits;

Description

  • VK_DEPENDENCY_BY_REGION_BIT specifies that dependencies will be framebuffer-local.

  • VK_DEPENDENCY_VIEW_LOCAL_BIT specifies that a subpass has more than one view.

  • VK_DEPENDENCY_DEVICE_GROUP_BIT specifies that dependencies are non-device-local.

  • VK_DEPENDENCY_FEEDBACK_LOOP_BIT_EXT specifies that the render pass will write to and read from the same image using the VK_IMAGE_LAYOUT_ATTACHMENT_FEEDBACK_LOOP_OPTIMAL_EXT layout.
