Description Philip Rebohle 2019-03-27 12:11:55 UTC

in some cases, DXVK creates depth-stencil images that are never transitioned out of VK_IMAGE_LAYOUT_GENERAL. From a D3D11 point of view, these images are only ever used for data transfers, and some of those transfers are implemented via compute shaders, so the usage flags are (TRANSFER_SRC | TRANSFER_DST | SAMPLED).

The problem is that the compute shaders in question read nothing but zeroes when using the GENERAL layout for sampling. It does work correctly when using SHADER_READ_ONLY_OPTIMAL, and it also works fine when setting RADV_DEBUG=nohiz.

Here's a renderdoc capture illustrating the issue:

The bookmarked dispatch call reads the image and packs its contents into a buffer. All buffer values should be 0x00FFFFFF if things work correctly, but are 0x00000000 right now.
