Chapter 18. Copy Commands

An application can copy buffer and image data using several methods depending on the type of data transfer. Data can be copied between buffer objects with vkCmdCopyBuffer and a portion of an image can be copied to another image with vkCmdCopyImage. Image data can also be copied to and from buffer memory using vkCmdCopyImageToBuffer and vkCmdCopyBufferToImage. Image data can be blitted (with or without scaling and filtering) with vkCmdBlitImage. Multisampled images can be resolved to a non-multisampled image with vkCmdResolveImage.
