Modify the rate at which generic vertex attributes advance during instanced rendering.

C Specification[edit]

void glVertexAttribDivisor( GLuint index, GLuint divisor );


index - Specify the index of the generic vertex attribute.
divisor - Specify the number of instances that will pass between updates of the generic attribute at slot index .


glVertexAttribDivisor modifies the rate at which generic vertex attributes advance when rendering multiple instances of primitives in a single draw call. If divisor is zero, the attribute at slot index advances once per vertex. If divisor is non-zero, the attribute advances once per divisor instances of the set(s) of vertices being rendered. An attribute is referred to as instanced if its GL_VERTEX_ATTRIB_ARRAY_DIVISOR value is non-zero.

index must be less than the value of GL_MAX_VERTEX_ATTRIBS .


glVertexAttribDivisor is available only if the GL version is 3.3 or higher.


GL_INVALID_VALUE is generated if index is greater than or equal to the value of GL_MAX_VERTEX_ATTRIBS.

Version Support[edit]

 glVertexAttribDivisor  3.3+
