C Specification

To copy data from an image object to another image object using the host, call:

// Provided by VK_EXT_host_image_copy
VkResult vkCopyImageToImageEXT(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    const VkCopyImageToImageInfoEXT*            pCopyImageToImageInfo);


  • device is the device which owns pCopyImageToMemoryInfo->srcImage.

  • pCopyImageToImageInfo is a pointer to a VkCopyImageToImageInfoEXT structure describing the copy parameters.


This command is functionally similar to vkCmdCopyImage2, except it is executed on the host.

Valid Usage
  • VUID-vkCopyImageToImageEXT-hostImageCopy-09068
    The hostImageCopy feature must be enabled

  • VUID-vkCopyImageToImageEXT-device-parameter
    device must be a valid VkDevice handle

  • VUID-vkCopyImageToImageEXT-pCopyImageToImageInfo-parameter
