Detailed Description

Image represents a collection of Image Subresources, where each subresource comprises a one to three dimensional grid of pixels. Images are divided into an array of mip-map chains. A mip map chain is a list of subresources, progressively halved on each axis, down to a 1x1 pixel base image. If an array is used, each array 'slice' is its own mip chain. All mip chains in an array share the same size.

Subresources are organized by a linear indexing scheme: mipSliceOffset + arraySliceOffset * arraySize. The total number of subresources is equal to mipLevels * arraySize. All subresources share the same pixel format.

Member Function Documentation

const ImageDescriptor& AZ::RHI::Image::GetDescriptor ( ) const

Returns the image descriptor used to initialize the image. If the image is uninitialized, the contents are considered undefined.

const ImageFrameAttachment* AZ::RHI::Image::GetFrameAttachment ( ) const

Returns the image frame attachment if the image is currently attached. This is assigned when the image is imported into the frame scheduler (which is reset every frame). This value will be null for non-attachment images.

uint32_t AZ::RHI::Image::GetResidentMipLevel ( ) const

Returns the most detailed mip level currently resident in memory, where a value of 0 is the highest detailed mip.

void AZ::RHI::Image::GetSubresourceLayouts ( const ImageSubresourceRange subresourceRange,
ImageSubresourceLayout subresourceLayouts,
size_t *  totalSizeInBytes 
) const

Computes the subresource layouts and total size of the image contents, if represented linearly. Effectively, this data represents how to store the image in a buffer resource. Naturally, if the image contents are swizzled in device memory, the layouts will differ from the actual physical memory footprint. Use this data to facilitate transfers between buffers and images.

subresourceRangeThe range of subresources in the image to consider when computing subresource layouts.
subresourceLayouts[Optional] If specified, fills the provided array with computed subresource layout results. The size of the array must be at least the number of subresources specified in the subresource range (number of mip slices * number of array slices).
totalSizeInBytes[Optional] If specified, will be filled with the total size necessary to contain all subresources.
HardwareQueueClassMask AZ::RHI::Image::GetSupportedQueueMask ( ) const

Returns the set of queue classes that are supported for usage as an attachment on the frame scheduler. Effectively, for a scope of a specific hardware class to use the image as an attachment, the queue must be present in this mask. This does not apply to non-attachment images on the Compute / Graphics queue.

void AZ::RHI::Image::ReportMemoryUsage ( MemoryStatisticsBuilder builder) const

This implementation estimates memory usage using the descriptor. Platforms may override to report more accurate memory usage.

Implements AZ::RHI::Resource.
