C Specification

The VkPhysicalDeviceShaderImageFootprintFeaturesNV structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_NV_shader_image_footprint
typedef struct VkPhysicalDeviceShaderImageFootprintFeaturesNV {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkBool32           imageFootprint;
} VkPhysicalDeviceShaderImageFootprintFeaturesNV;


This structure describes the following feature:


  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

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

  • imageFootprint specifies whether the implementation supports the ImageFootprintNV SPIR-V capability.

See Texel Footprint Evaluation for more information.

If the VkPhysicalDeviceShaderImageFootprintFeaturesNV structure is included in the pNext chain of the VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures2 structure passed to vkGetPhysicalDeviceFeatures2, it is filled in to indicate whether each corresponding feature is supported. VkPhysicalDeviceShaderImageFootprintFeaturesNV can also be used in the pNext chain of VkDeviceCreateInfo to selectively enable these features.

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