Learn techniques that can be applied to a wide range of platforms desktop,smartphones,and embedded devices


Book Description

Vulkan is the next generation graphics API released by the Khronos group. It is expected to be the successor to OpenGL and OpenGL ES,which it shares some similarities with such as its cross-platform capabilities,programmed pipeline stages,or nomenclature. Vulkan is a low-level API that gives developers much more control over the hardware,but also adds new responsibilities such as explicit memory and resources management. With it,though,Vulkan is expected to be much faster.
This book is your guide to understanding Vulkan through a series of recipes. We start off by teaching you how to create instances in Vulkan and choose the device on which operations will be performed. You will then explore more complex topics such as command buffers,resources and memory management,pipelines,GLSL shaders,render passes,and more. Gradually,the book moves on to teach you advanced rendering techniques,how to draw 3D scenes,and how to improve the performance of your applications.
By the end of the book,you will be familiar with the latest advanced techniques implemented with the Vulkan API,which can be used on a wide range of platforms.
What you will learn
Work with Swapchain to present images on screen
Create,submit,and synchronize operations processed by the hardware
Create buffers and images,manage their memory,and upload data to them from CPU
Explore descriptor sets and set up an interface between application and shaders
Organize drawing operations into a set of render passes and subpasses
Prepare graphics pipelines to draw 3D scenes and compute pipelines to perform mathematical calculations
Implement geometry projection and tessellation,texturing,lighting,and post-processing techniques
Write shaders in GLSL and convert them into SPIR-V assemblies
Find out about and implement a collection of popular,advanced rendering techniques found in games and benchmarks
