Tutorial Samples

A set of samples to illustrate Vulkan API on Android with Android Studio To build on windows for tutorial02/03, copy/install ndk-r12 ( or better ) to a directory close to root dir ( C: ) to workaround command path 260 character limit issue; see tutorial02/03's build.gradle for details. To Build samples:

  • Inside Andriod, menu File --> New --> Import Project
  • Find your sample's build.gradle and open it This will force andrioid studio to create file to config your SDK and NDK location; if you see error during importing, open file and correct the NDK and SDK location, then re-sync.
