C Specification

To dynamically set the depth bias parameters, call:

// Provided by VK_EXT_depth_bias_control
void vkCmdSetDepthBias2EXT(
    VkCommandBuffer                             commandBuffer,
    const VkDepthBiasInfoEXT*                   pDepthBiasInfo);


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

  • pDepthBiasInfo is a pointer to a VkDepthBiasInfoEXT structure specifying depth bias parameters.


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

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-vkCmdSetDepthBias2EXT-commandBuffer-parameter
    commandBuffer must be a valid VkCommandBuffer handle

  • VUID-vkCmdSetDepthBias2EXT-pDepthBiasInfo-parameter
    pDepthBiasInfo must be a valid pointer to a valid VkDepthBiasInfoEXT structure

  • VUID-vkCmdSetDepthBias2EXT-commandBuffer-recording
    commandBuffer must be in the recording state

  • VUID-vkCmdSetDepthBias2EXT-commandBuffer-cmdpool
    The VkCommandPool that commandBuffer was allocated from must support graphics operations

  • VUID-vkCmdSetDepthBias2EXT-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
