Class VkDrmFormatModifierPropertiesEXT

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class VkDrmFormatModifierPropertiesEXT
    extends Struct
    Structure specifying properties of a format when combined with a DRM format modifier.

    The returned drmFormatModifierTilingFeatures must contain at least one bit.

    The implementation must not return DRM_FORMAT_MOD_INVALID in drmFormatModifier.

    An image's memory planecount (as returned by drmFormatModifierPlaneCount) is distinct from its format planecount (in the sense of multi-planar Y'CBCR formats). In VkImageAspectFlags, each VK_IMAGE_ASPECT_MEMORY_PLANE___i___BIT_EXT represents a memory plane and each VK_IMAGE_ASPECT_PLANE___i___BIT a format plane.

    An image's set of format planes is an ordered partition of the image's content into separable groups of format channels. The ordered partition is encoded in the name of each VkFormat. For example, FORMAT_G8_B8R8_2PLANE_420_UNORM contains two format planes; the first plane contains the green channel and the second plane contains the blue channel and red channel. If the format name does not contain PLANE, then the format contains a single plane; for example, FORMAT_R8G8B8A8_UNORM. Some commands, such as CmdCopyBufferToImage, do not operate on all format channels in the image, but instead operate only on the format planes explicitly chosen by the application and operate on each format plane independently.

    An image's set of memory planes is an ordered partition of the image's memory rather than the image's content. Each memory plane is a contiguous range of memory. The union of an image's memory planes is not necessarily contiguous.

    If an image is linear, then the partition is the same for memory planes and for format planes. Therefore, if the returned drmFormatModifier is DRM_FORMAT_MOD_LINEAR, then drmFormatModifierPlaneCount must equal the format planecount, and drmFormatModifierTilingFeatures must be identical to the VkFormatProperties2::linearTilingFeatures returned in the same pNext chain.

    If an image is non-linear, then the partition of the image's memory into memory planes is implementation-specific and may be unrelated to the partition of the image's content into format planes. For example, consider an image whose format is FORMAT_G8_B8_R8_3PLANE_420_UNORM, tiling is IMAGE_TILING_DRM_FORMAT_MODIFIER_EXT, whose drmFormatModifier is not DRM_FORMAT_MOD_LINEAR, and flags lacks IMAGE_CREATE_DISJOINT_BIT. The image has 3 format planes, and commands such CmdCopyBufferToImage act on each format plane independently as if the data of each format plane were separable from the data of the other planes. In a straightforward implementation, the implementation may store the image's content in 3 adjacent memory planes where each memory plane corresponds exactly to a format plane. However, the implementation may also store the image's content in a single memory plane where all format channels are combined using an implementation-private block-compressed format; or the implementation may store the image's content in a collection of 7 adjacent memory planes using an implementation-private sharding technique. Because the image is non-linear and non-disjoint, the implementation has much freedom when choosing the image's placement in memory.

    The memory planecount applies to function parameters and structures only when the API specifies an explicit requirement on drmFormatModifierPlaneCount. In all other cases, the memory planecount is ignored.
