C Specification

The local dimming HDR setting may also be changed over the life of a swapchain by calling:

// Provided by VK_AMD_display_native_hdr
void vkSetLocalDimmingAMD(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    VkSwapchainKHR                              swapChain,
    VkBool32                                    localDimmingEnable);


  • device is the device associated with swapChain.

  • swapChain handle to enable local dimming.

  • localDimmingEnable specifies whether local dimming is enabled for the swapchain.


Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-vkSetLocalDimmingAMD-device-parameter
    device must be a valid VkDevice handle

  • VUID-vkSetLocalDimmingAMD-swapChain-parameter
    swapChain must be a valid VkSwapchainKHR handle

  • VUID-vkSetLocalDimmingAMD-swapChain-parent
    swapChain must have been created, allocated, or retrieved from device
