Feature request: VK_EXT_descriptor_indexing support? #1111
I think most of the guarantees in the extension about descriptor update timing and lifetime probably Just Work™ since I only fetch descriptor contents at submit time, and should handle unbound descriptors gracefully (since I don't do static use analysis either).
However bindless is difficult for tools to handle properly and it will need new functionality to figure out from dynamic inspection which descriptors are used or not. Until that happens I'm extremely reticent to report support for this extension. There's not much point in being able to capture and replay if the debugger is then useless.
Supporting bindless properly is certainly a goal, so it's definitely on my list, but I wouldn't expect it soon.
I'm not sure if it's relevant, but can the work done in GPU assisted validation layers be of help to RenderDoc? Specifically to "figure out from dynamic inspection which descriptors are used or not".
