Overview

    This extension allows a texture's data store to be "viewed" in multiple
    ways, either reinterpreting the data format/type as a different format/
    type with the same element size, or by clamping the mipmap level range
    or array slice range.

    The goals of this extension are to avoid having these alternate views
    become shared mutable containers of shared mutable objects, and to add
    the views to the API in a minimally invasive way.

    No new object types are added. Conceptually, a texture object is split
    into the following parts:

        - A data store holding texel data.
        - State describing which portions of the data store to use, and how
          to interpret the data elements.
        - An embedded sampler object.
        - Various other texture parameters.

    With this extension, multiple textures can share a data store and have
    different state describing which portions of the data store to use and
    how to interpret the data elements. The data store is refcounted and not
    destroyed until the last texture sharing it is deleted.

    This extension leverages the concept of an "immutable texture".
    Views can only be created of textures created with TexStorage*.

Additions to the OpenGL ES 3.1 Specification

    Modify section 5.3, "Propagating Changes to Objects"

    Add to the paragraph starting "When <T> is a texture, the contents ..."
    on p. 44:

    When <T> is a texture, the contents of <T> are construed to include the
    contents of the data store of <T>, even if <T>'s data store was modified
    via a different view of the data store.


    Modify subsection 8.9, "Texture Parameters"

    Add the following to the end of the paragraph on p. 171 starting
    "In the remainder of chapter 8, denote by lod_min...":

    If the texture was created with TextureViewEXT, then the
    TEXTURE_BASE_LEVEL and TEXTURE_MAX_LEVEL parameters are interpreted
    relative to the view and not relative to the original data store.


    Modify section 8.10.2, "Texture Parameter Queries"

    Add to the list of legal <pname>s in the description of GetTexParameter
    on p. 172:

    ... <pname> must be IMAGE_FORMAT_COMPATIBILITY_TYPE,
    TEXTURE_IMMUTABLE_FORMAT, TEXTURE_IMMUTABLE_LEVELS,
    TEXTURE_VIEW_MIN_LEVEL_EXT, TEXTURE_VIEW_NUM_LEVELS_EXT,
    TEXTURE_VIEW_MIN_LAYER_EXT, TEXTURE_VIEW_NUM_LAYERS_EXT, or one of the
    symbolic values in table 8.20.


    Add a new subsection 8.16view following section 8.16, "Texture Completeness"

    8.16view Texture Views

    A texture can be created which references the data store of another
    texture and interprets the data with a different format, and/or selects
    a subset of the levels and/or layers of the other texture. The data
    store for such a texture is shared with the data store of the original
    texture. Updating the shared data store using the original texture
    affects texture values read using the new texture, and vice versa. A
    texture data store remains in existence until all textures that
    reference it are deleted.

    The command:

        void TextureViewEXT(uint texture, enum target, uint origtexture,
                         enum internalformat,
                         uint minlevel, uint numlevels,
                         uint minlayer, uint numlayers);

    initializes the texture named <texture> to the target specified by
    <target>. <texture>'s data store is inherited from the texture named
    <origtexture>, but elements of the data store are interpreted according
    to the internal format specified by <internalformat>. Additionally, if the
    original texture is an array or has multiple mipmap levels, the parameters
    <minlayer>, <numlayers>, <minlevel>, and <numlevels> control which of those
    slices and levels are considered part of the texture.

    The <minlevel> and <minlayer> parameters are relative to the view of the
    original texture. If <numlayers> or <numlevels> extend beyond the
    original texture, they are clamped to the max extent of the original
    texture.

    If the command is successful, the texture parameters in <texture> are
    updated as follows:

     - TEXTURE_IMMUTABLE_FORMAT is set to TRUE.

     - TEXTURE_IMMUTABLE_LEVELS is set to the value of
       TEXTURE_IMMUTABLE_LEVELS for <origtexture>.

     - TEXTURE_VIEW_MIN_LEVEL_EXT is set to <minlevel> plus the value of
       TEXTURE_VIEW_MIN_LEVEL_EXT for <origtexture>.

     - TEXTURE_VIEW_MIN_LAYER_EXT is set to <minlayer> plus the value of
       TEXTURE_VIEW_MIN_LAYER_EXT for <origtexture>.

     - TEXTURE_VIEW_NUM_LEVELS_EXT is set to the lesser of <numlevels> and
       the value of TEXTURE_VIEW_NUM_LEVELS_EXT for <origtexture> minus
       <minlevels>.

     - TEXTURE_VIEW_NUM_LAYERS_EXT is set to the lesser of <numlayers> and
       the value of TEXTURE_VIEW_NUM_LAYERS_EXT for <origtexture> minus
       <minlayer>.

    The new texture's target must be <compatible> with the target of
    <origtexture>, as defined by table 8.X.1.

    Numerous constraints on <numlayers> and the texture dimensions depend on
    <target> and the target of <origtexture>. These constraints are
    summarized below in the errors section.

        Table 8.X.1: Legal texture targets for TextureViewEXT.

    When <origtexture>'s target is TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP, the layer parameters
    are interpreted in the same order as if it were a
    TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_ARRAY_EXT with 6 layer-faces.

    The two textures' internal formats must be compatible according to Table
    8.X.2 (Compatible internal formats for TextureViewEXT) if the internal
    format exists in that table. The internal formats must be identical if
    not in that table.

        Table 8.X.2: Compatible internal formats for TextureViewEXT. Formats
        in the same entry may be cast to each other.

    If the internal format does not exactly match the internal format of the
    original texture, the contents of the memory are reinterpreted in the
    same manner as for image bindings described in section 8.22.

    Texture commands that take a <level> or <layer> parameter, such as
    TexSubImage2D, interpret that parameter to be relative to the view of
    the texture. i.e. the mipmap level of the data store that would be
    updated via TexSubImage2D would be the sum of <level> and the value of
    TEXTURE_VIEW_MIN_LEVEL_EXT.


    Errors

    An INVALID_VALUE error is generated if <texture> is zero.

    An INVALID_OPERATION error is generated by TextureViewEXT if <texture>
    is not a valid name returned by GenTextures, or if <texture> has already
    been bound and given a target.

    An INVALID_VALUE error is generated if <origtexture> is not the name of
    a texture.

    An INVALID_OPERATION error is generated if the value of
    TEXTURE_IMMUTABLE_FORMAT for <origtexture> is not TRUE.

    An INVALID_OPERATION error is generated if <target> is not compatible
    with the target of <origtexture>, as defined by table 8.X.1.

    An INVALID_OPERATION error is generated if the internal format of
    <origtexture> exists in table 8.X.2 and is not compatible with
    <internalformat>, as described in that table.

    An INVALID_OPERATION error is generated if the internal format of
    <origtexture> does not exist in table 8.X.2, and is not identical to
    <internalformat>.

    An INVALID_VALUE error is generated if <minlevel> or <minlayer> are
    larger than the greatest level or layer, respectively, of <origtexture>.

    An INVALID_VALUE error is generated if <target> is TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP and
    the clamped <numlayers> is not 6.

    An INVALID_VALUE error is generated if <target> is
    TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_ARRAY_EXT and the clamped <numlayers> is not a multiple
    of 6. In this case <numlayers> counts layer-faces rather than layers.

    An INVALID_VALUE error is generated if <target> is TEXTURE_2D,
    TEXTURE_3D, or TEXTURE_2D_MULTISAMPLE and <numlayers> does not equal 1.

    An INVALID_OPERATION error is generated if <target> is
    TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP or TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_ARRAY_EXT, and the width and height
    of <origtexture>'s levels are not equal.

    An INVALID_OPERATION error is generated if any dimension of
    <origtexture> is larger than the maximum supported corresponding
    dimension of the new target. For example, if <origtexture> has a
    TEXTURE_2D_ARRAY target and <target> is TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP, its width must
    be no greater than the value of MAX_CUBE_MAP_TEXTURE_SIZE.


    Modify section 8.17, "Immutable-Format Texture Images"

    Modify the third bullet on p. 188, starting "If the command is
    successful, TEXTURE_IMMUTABLE_FORMAT...":

    If the command is successful, TEXTURE_IMMUTABLE_FORMAT becomes TRUE,
    TEXTURE_IMMUTABLE_LEVELS and TEXTURE_VIEW_NUM_LEVELS_EXT become
    <levels>. If the texture target is TEXTURE_2D_ARRAY,
    TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_ARRAY, or TEXTURE_2D_MULTISAMPLE_ARRAY then
    TEXTURE_VIEW_NUM_LAYERS_EXT becomes <depth>. If the texture target is
    TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP, then TEXTURE_VIEW_NUM_LAYERS_EXT becomes 6. For any
    other texture target, TEXTURE_VIEW_NUM_LAYERS_EXT becomes 1.


    Modify section 8.18, "Texture State"

    Add to the fourth paragraph on the section on p. 191, starting "Next,
    there are the":

    "... swizzle modes (see section 14.2.1), and four integers describing
    the texture view base level, number of levels, minimum array layer, and
    number of layers."

    Add to the following paragraph starting "In the initial state":

    "... and ALPHA, respectively. The values of TEXTURE_VIEW_MIN_LEVEL_EXT,
    TEXTURE_VIEW_NUM_LEVELS_EXT, TEXTURE_VIEW_MIN_LAYER_EXT,
    TEXTURE_VIEW_NUM_LAYERS_EXT are each zero."


Dependencies on EXT_texture_buffer

    TEXTURE_BUFFER_EXT from the list of targets in table 8.X.1.

Dependencies on EXT_texture_cube_map_array

    If EXT_texture_cube_map_array is not supported, remove all
    references to TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_ARRAY_EXT.

    If EXT_texture_compression_rgtc is not supported, remove any
    references to the RGTC compressed texture formats.

Dependencies on EXT_texture_compression_bptc

    If EXT_texture_compression_bptc is not supported, remove any
    references to the BPTC compressed texture formats.

Dependencies on KHR_texture_compression_astc_ldr

    If KHR_texture_compression_astc_ldr is not supported, remove any
    references to the ASTC LDR compressed texture formats.

Dependencies on KHR_texture_compression_astc_hdr

    If KHR_texture_compression_astc_hdr is not supported, remove any
    references to the ASTC HDR compressed texture formats.

Dependencies on OES_texture_compression_astc

    If OES_texture_compression_astc is not supported, remove any
    references to the ASTC 3D compressed texture formats.

New State

    Add to table 20.9, Textures (state per texture object)

                                                         Initial
    Get Value                    Type   Get Command      Value    Description                   Sec.

Issues

    Note: These issues apply specifically to the definition of the
    EXT_texture_view specification, which is based on the OpenGL
    extension ARB_texture_view. Resolved issues from ARB_texture_view
    have been removed, but remain largely applicable to this extension.
    ARB_texture_view can be found in the OpenGL Registry.

    (1) What functionality was removed from ARB_texture_view?

      - Texture targets TEXTURE_1D_ARRAY and TEXTURE_RECTANGLE.
      - View classes VIEW_CLASS_RGTC1_RED, VIEW_CLASS_RGTC2_RG,
        VIEW_CLASS_BPTC_UNORM, and VIEW_CLASS_BPTC_FLOAT, corresponding
        to GL-only RGTC and BPTC compressed texture formats.
      - Base and internal formats R16, R16_SNORM, RG16, RG16_SNORM, RGB16,
        RGB16_SNORM, RGBA16, and RGBA16_SNORM (see bug 11366).

    (2) Should there be ETC2/EAC view classes added corresponding to
    those texture formats?

    RESOLVED. Yes. These view classes don't exist in OpenGL 4.4 or any GL
    extension, even though ETC2/EAC compressed formats are part of 4.4.
    However as these formats are likely to be more important in an
    OpenGL ES environment and thus support is added.  Support is also
    included for ASTC and RGTC and BPTC in case those texture formats
    are also supported.
