This is the 8th post on OpenGL and Vulkan Interoperability with EXT_external_objects and EXT_external_objects_fd where I explain some example use cases of the extensions I’ve implemented for Piglit as part of my work for Igalia. In this example, a Vulkan vertex buffer is created and filled with vertices and then it’s used to render the same chess board pattern once with OpenGL and once with Vulkan.
This is the 7th post on OpenGL and Vulkan Interoperability with EXT_external_objects. It’s about another EXT_external_objects use case implemented for Piglit as part of my work for Igalia‘s graphics team. In this case a vertex buffer is allocated and filled with data from Vulkan and then it’s used from OpenGL to render a pattern on screen.
This is another blog post on OpenGL and Vulkan Interoperability. It’s not really a description of a new use case as the Piglit test I am going to describe is quite similar to the previous example we’ve seen where we reused a Vulkan pixel buffer from OpenGL. This Piglit test was written because there’s an interesting issue (Issue 7) in the spec according to which overwriting Vulkan buffers with glBufferSubData is not possible! This is interesting because we can overwrite textures but not buffers. When we attempt to overwrite a buffer using glBufferSubData the driver must return an Invalid Operation Error and this is what we tested with the
vk-pix-buf-update-errors test that can be found in
tests/spec/ext_external_objects directory like all other tests we’ve seen so far.
This is the 5th post of the OpenGL and Vulkan interoperability series where I describe some use cases for the EXT_external_objects and EXT_external_objects_fd extensions. These use cases have been implemented inside Piglit as part of my work for Igalia‘s graphics team using a Vulkan framework I’ve written for this purpose.
And in this 5th post, we are going to see a case where a pixel buffer is allocated and filled by Vulkan and its data are used as source data for an OpenGL texture image.
This is the 4th post on OpenGL and Vulkan Interoperability on Linux. The first one was an introduction to EXT_external_objects and EXT_external_objects_fd extensions, the second was describing a simple interoperability use case where a Vulkan allocated textured is filled by OpenGL, and the third was about a slightly more complex use case where a Vulkan texture was filled by Vulkan and displayed by OpenGL. In this 4th and last post about shared textures, we are going to see a use case where a Vulkan texture is filled by Vulkan, then gets overwritten by OpenGL, then is read back from Vulkan and then displayed again using OpenGL. This more complex use case has also been written for Piglit using the small Vulkan framework I’ve written to test the external objects extensions. The source code can be found inside the
tests/spec/ext_external_objects directory of the mesa/piglit master branch.
This is the third post of the OpenGL and Vulkan interoperability series, where I explain some EXT_external_objects and EXT_external_objects_fd use cases with examples taken by the Piglit tests I’ve written to test the extensions as part of my work for Igalia‘s graphics team.
We are going to see a slightly more complex case of Vulkan/GL interoperability where an image is allocated and filled using Vulkan and then it is displayed using OpenGL. This case is implemented in Piglit’s
vk-image-display test for a 2D RGBA texture (which is one of the most commonly used texture types).
Remember that the code for the test and the Vulkan helper/framework functions as well as the interoperability functions is in
tests/spec/ext_external_objects/ Piglit directory.
This is the second post of the OpenGL and Vulkan interoperability series, where I explain some EXT_external_objects and EXT_external_objects_fd use cases with examples taken by the Piglit tests I’ve written to test the extensions as part of my work for Igalia‘s graphics team.
We are going to see a very simple case of Vulkan/GL interoperability where an image is allocated using Vulkan and filled using OpenGL. This case is implemented in Piglit’s vk-image-overwrite test for images of different formats.
It’s been a while that Igalia’s graphics team had been working on the OpenGL extensions that provide the mechanisms for OpenGL and Vulkan interoperability in the Intel iris (gallium3d) driver that is part of mesa.
As there were no conformance tests (CTS) for this extension, and we needed to test it, we have written (and we are still writing) small tests for piglit that allow the exchange and the synchronization of the exchange of resources such as buffers, textures, and depth or stencil buffers.
