C Specification

To copy data between image objects, call:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_3
void vkCmdCopyImage2(
    VkCommandBuffer                             commandBuffer,
    const VkCopyImageInfo2*                     pCopyImageInfo);

or the equivalent command

// Provided by VK_KHR_copy_commands2
void vkCmdCopyImage2KHR(
    VkCommandBuffer                             commandBuffer,
    const VkCopyImageInfo2*                     pCopyImageInfo);

Parameters

  • commandBuffer is the command buffer into which the command will be recorded.

  • pCopyImageInfo is a pointer to a VkCopyImageInfo2 structure describing the copy parameters.

Description

This command is functionally identical to vkCmdCopyImage, but includes extensible sub-structures that include sType and pNext parameters, allowing them to be more easily extended.

Valid Usage
  • VUID-vkCmdCopyImage2-commandBuffer-01825
    If commandBuffer is an unprotected command buffer and protectedNoFault is not supported, srcImage must not be a protected image

  • VUID-vkCmdCopyImage2-commandBuffer-01826
    If commandBuffer is an unprotected command buffer and protectedNoFault is not supported, dstImage must not be a protected image

  • VUID-vkCmdCopyImage2-commandBuffer-01827
    If commandBuffer is a protected command buffer and protectedNoFault is not supported, dstImage must not be an unprotected image

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-vkCmdCopyImage2-commandBuffer-parameter
    commandBuffer must be a valid VkCommandBuffer handle

  • VUID-vkCmdCopyImage2-pCopyImageInfo-parameter
    pCopyImageInfo must be a valid pointer to a valid VkCopyImageInfo2 structure

  • VUID-vkCmdCopyImage2-commandBuffer-recording
    commandBuffer must be in the recording state

  • VUID-vkCmdCopyImage2-commandBuffer-cmdpool
    The VkCommandPool that commandBuffer was allocated from must support transfer, graphics, or compute operations

  • VUID-vkCmdCopyImage2-renderpass
    This command must only be called outside of a render pass instance

  • VUID-vkCmdCopyImage2-videocoding
    This command must only be called outside of a video coding scope

Host Synchronization
  • Host access to commandBuffer must be externally synchronized

  • Host access to the VkCommandPool that commandBuffer was allocated from must be externally synchronized
