This extension extends EGL_KHR_image_base and enables EGLImages to be created from a source texture from OpenGL. This particular extension string denotes that an EGLImage can be created from a basic 2D texture. This extension is also required to create an OpenGL texture 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


// Attributes that tell the CreateImage command to use the first level of the texture 
// (NB: This is the default and doesn't actually need to be specified, it's just for 
// illustration.) 
EGLint imageAttributes[] =  
// Create an EGLImageKHR from an OpenGL ES Texture. The context which contains the OpenGL ES 
// texture must be specified, as OpenGL ES is supported by an EGLContext. 
EGLImageKHR eglImage = eglCreateImageKHR(eglDisplay, eglOpenGLESContext, EGL_GL_TEXTURE_2D_KHR, (EGLClientBuffer)anOpenGLTexture, imageAttributes);
