C Specification

The VkSamplerReductionModeCreateInfo structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_2
typedef struct VkSamplerReductionModeCreateInfo {
    VkStructureType           sType;
    const void*               pNext;
    VkSamplerReductionMode    reductionMode;
} VkSamplerReductionModeCreateInfo;

or the equivalent

// Provided by VK_EXT_sampler_filter_minmax
typedef VkSamplerReductionModeCreateInfo VkSamplerReductionModeCreateInfoEXT;


  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

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

  • reductionMode is a VkSamplerReductionMode value controlling how texture filtering combines texel values.


If the pNext chain of VkSamplerCreateInfo includes a VkSamplerReductionModeCreateInfo structure, then that structure includes a mode controlling how texture filtering combines texel values.

If this structure is not present, reductionMode is considered to be VK_SAMPLER_REDUCTION_MODE_WEIGHTED_AVERAGE.

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

  • VUID-VkSamplerReductionModeCreateInfo-reductionMode-parameter
    reductionMode must be a valid VkSamplerReductionMode value
