PVRCarbon GUI

The PVRCarbon GUI is the graphical user interface of PVRCarbon. It opens .pvrcbn files created with the PVRCarbon Recorder or its associated libraries, as well as .pvrcbna files from Frame Analysis.

A wealth of information is displayed in the user interface. If multiple frames have been recording then it is possible to step through the recording frame-by-frame. The information displayed in the GUI updates based on the current frame.

This version of PVRCarbon supports Vulkan, OpenGL ES (2.0+), EGL, and OpenCL APIs.


The GUI is composed of five main elements:

  • The Function List;

  • The Render and Recorded Framebuffer windows;

  • The Static Analysis window;

  • The Log;

  • The Analysis GUI.

Combining all of these features allows for deep analysis of an application.
