This extension extends EGL_KHR_image_base and enables EGLImages to be created from a source renderbuffer from OpenGL. This particular extension string denotes that an EGLImage can be created from a renderbuffer. This extension is also required to create an OpenGL renderbuffer from an EGLImage when GL_KHR_image is supported in the implementation.


This functionality is core to EGL 1.5, so the extension is no longer needed.

Registry Link


// Create an EGLImageKHR from an OpenGL ES Renderbuffer 
EGLImageKHR eglImage = eglCreateImageKHR(eglDisplay, eglOpenGLESContext, EGL_GL_RENDERBUFFER_KHR, (EGLClientBuffer)anOpenGLRenderbuffer, NULL);
