C Specification

To dynamically set the coverageModulationMode state, call:

// Provided by VK_EXT_extended_dynamic_state3 with VK_NV_framebuffer_mixed_samples, VK_EXT_shader_object with VK_NV_framebuffer_mixed_samples
void vkCmdSetCoverageModulationModeNV(
    VkCommandBuffer                             commandBuffer,
    VkCoverageModulationModeNV                  coverageModulationMode);


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

  • coverageModulationMode specifies the coverageModulationMode state.


This command sets the coverageModulationMode state for subsequent drawing commands when drawing using shader objects, or the graphics pipeline is created with VK_DYNAMIC_STATE_COVERAGE_MODULATION_MODE_NV set in VkPipelineDynamicStateCreateInfo::pDynamicStates. Otherwise, this state is specified by the VkPipelineCoverageModulationStateCreateInfoNV::coverageModulationMode value used to create the currently active pipeline.

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

  • VUID-vkCmdSetCoverageModulationModeNV-coverageModulationMode-parameter
    coverageModulationMode must be a valid VkCoverageModulationModeNV value

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

  • VUID-vkCmdSetCoverageModulationModeNV-commandBuffer-cmdpool
    The VkCommandPool that commandBuffer was allocated from must support graphics operations

  • VUID-vkCmdSetCoverageModulationModeNV-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
