Replay Control

Initialisation and Shutdown

renderdoc.InitialiseReplay(globalEnv, args)

Initialises RenderDoc for replay. Replay API functions should not be called before this has been called. It should be called exactly once, and before shutdown you must call ShutdownReplay().

Parameters
  • globalEnv# (GlobalEnvironment) – The path to the new log file.

  • args# (List[str]) – Any extra command-line arguments.

renderdoc.ShutdownReplay()

Shutdown RenderDoc for replay. Replay API functions should not be called after this has been called. It is not safe to re-initialise replay after this function has been called so it should only be called at program shutdown. This function must only be called if InitialiseReplay() was previously called.

class renderdoc.GlobalEnvironment

Structure used for initialising environment in a replay application.

enumerateGPUs

Whether to enumerate available GPUs. If the replay program is only being used for internal operation where enumerating GPUs would be too expensive or problematic, it can be disabled here.

waylandDisplay

The handle to the wayland display to use internally. If left NULL, wayland cannot be used.

xlibDisplay

The handle to the X display to use internally. If left NULL, one will be opened.

Capture File Access

renderdoc.OpenCaptureFile()

Create a handle for a capture file.

This function returns a new handle to a capture file. Once initialised by opening a file the handle can only be shut-down, it is not re-usable.

Returns

A handle to the specified path.

Return type

CaptureFile

class renderdoc.CaptureAccess

An interface for accessing a capture, possibly over a network connection. This is a subset of the functionality provided in CaptureFile which only supports import/export and construction of files.

DriverName()

Retrieves the name of the driver that was used to create this capture.

Returns

A simple string identifying the driver used to make the capture.

Return type

str

FindSectionByName(name)

Locate the index of a section by its name. Returns -1 if the section is not found.

This index should not be cached, as writing sections could re-order the indices.

Parameters

name# (str) – The name of the section to search for.

Returns

The index of the section, or -1 if not found.

Return type

int

FindSectionByType(type)

Locate the index of a section by its type. Returns -1 if the section is not found.

This index should not be cached, as writing sections could re-order the indices.

Parameters

type# (SectionType) – The type of the section to search for.

Returns

The index of the section, or -1 if not found.

Return type

int

GetAvailableGPUs()

Returns the list of available GPUs, that can be used in combination with ReplayOptions to force replay on a particular GPU.

Returns

The list of GPUs available.

Return type

List[GPUDevice]

GetResolve(callstack)

Retrieve the details of each stackframe in the provided callstack.

Must only be called after InitResolver() has returned True.

Parameters

callstack# (List[int]) – The integer addresses in the original callstack.

Returns

The list of resolved callstack entries as strings.

Return type

List[str]

GetSectionContents(index)

Get the raw byte contents of the specified section.

The properties of the section, if the index is valid.

Return type

SectionProperties

HasCallstacks()

Query if callstacks are available.

Returns

True if any callstacks are available, False otherwise.

Return type

bool

InitResolver(interactive, progress)

Begin initialising a callstack resolver, looking up symbol files and caching as necessary.

This function blocks while trying to initialise callstack resolving, so it should be called on a separate thread.

Parameters
  • interactive# (bool) – True if missing symbols or other prompts should be resolved interactively. If this is False, the function will not interact or block forever on user interaction and will always assume the input is effectively ‘cancel’ or empty. This may cause the symbol resolution to fail.

  • progress# (ProgressCallback) – A callback that will be repeatedly called with an updated progress value for the resolver process. Can be None if no progress is desired.

Returns

True if the resolver successfully initialised, False if something went wrong.

Return type

bool

WriteSection(props, contents)

Writes a new section with specified properties and contents. If an existing section already has the same type or name, it will be overwritten (two sections cannot share the same type or name).

Parameters
  • props# (SectionProperties) – The properties of the section to be written.

  • contents# (bytes) – The raw contents of the section.

Returns

True if the section was written successfully, False otherwise.

Return type

bool

class renderdoc.CaptureFile

A handle to a capture file. Used for simple cheap processing and meta-data fetching without opening the capture for analysis.

Convert(filename, filetype, file, progress)

Converts the currently loaded file to a given format and saves it to disk.

This allows converting a native RDC to another representation, or vice-versa converting another representation back to native RDC.

Parameters
  • filename# (str) – The filename to save to.

  • filetype# (str) – The format to convert to.

  • file# (SDFile) – An optional SDFile with the structured data to source from. This is useful in case the format specifies that it doesn’t need buffers, and you already have a ReplayController open with the structured data. This saves the need to load the file again. If None then structured data will be fetched if not already present and used.

  • progress# (ProgressCallback) – A callback that will be repeatedly called with an updated progress value for the conversion. Can be None if no progress is desired.

Returns

The status of the conversion operation, whether it succeeded or failed (and how it failed).

Return type

ReplayStatus

CopyFileTo(filename)

When a capture file is opened, an exclusive lock is held on the file on disk. This makes it impossible to copy the file to another location at the user’s request. Calling this function will copy the file on disk to a new location but otherwise won’t affect the capture handle. The new file will be locked, the old file will be unlocked - to allow deleting if necessary.

It is invalid to call this function if OpenFile() has not previously been called to open the file.

Parameters

filename# (str) – The filename to copy to.

Returns

True if the operation succeeded.

Return type

bool

ErrorString()

Returns the human-readable error string for the last error received.

The error string is not reset by calling this function so it’s safe to call multiple times. However any other function call may reset the error string to empty.

Returns

The error string, if one exists, or an empty string.

Return type

str

GetCaptureFileFormats()

Returns the list of capture file formats.

Returns

The list of capture file formats available.

Return type

List[CaptureFileFormat]

GetStructuredData()

Returns the structured data for this capture.

The lifetime of this data is scoped to the lifetime of the capture handle, so it cannot be used after the handle is destroyed.

Returns

The structured data representing the file.

Return type

SDFile

GetThumbnail(type, maxsize)

Retrieves the embedded thumbnail from the capture.

Note

The only supported values for GetThumbnail.type are FileType.JPG, FileType.PNG, FileType.TGA, and FileType.BMP.

Parameters
  • type# (FileType) – The image format to convert the thumbnail to.

  • maxsize# (int) – The largest width or height allowed. If the thumbnail is larger, it’s resized.

Returns

The raw contents of the thumbnail, converted to the desired type at the desired max resolution.

Return type

Thumbnail

LocalReplaySupport()

Returns

How much support for replay exists locally.

Return type

ReplaySupport

OpenBuffer(buffer, filetype, progress)

Initialises the file handle from a raw memory buffer.

This may be useful if you don’t want to parse the whole file or already have the file in memory.

For the OpenBuffer.filetype parameter, see OpenFile().

Parameters
  • buffer# (bytes) – The buffer containing the data to process.

  • filetype# (str) – The format of the given file.

  • progress# (ProgressCallback) – A callback that will be repeatedly called with an updated progress value if an import step occurs. Can be None if no progress is desired.

Returns

The status of the open operation, whether it succeeded or failed (and how it failed).

Return type

ReplayStatus

OpenCapture(opts, progress)

Opens a capture for replay locally and returns a handle to the capture. Only supported for handles opened with a native rdc capture, otherwise this will fail.

This function will block until the capture is fully loaded and ready.

Once the replay is created, this CaptureFile can be shut down, there is no dependency on it by the ReplayController.

Parameters
  • opts# (ReplayOptions) – The options controlling how the capture should be replayed.

  • progress# (ProgressCallback) – A callback that will be repeatedly called with an updated progress value for the opening. Can be None if no progress is desired.

Returns

A tuple containing the status of opening the capture, whether success or failure, and the resulting ReplayController handle if successful.

Return type

Tuple[ReplayStatus,ReplayController]

OpenFile(filename, filetype, progress)

Initialises the capture handle from a file.

This method supports converting from non-native representations via structured data, by specifying the input format in the OpenFile.filetype parameter. The list of supported formats can be retrieved by calling GetCaptureFileFormats().

rdc is guaranteed to always be a supported filetype, and will be assumed if the filetype is empty or unrecognised.

Parameters
  • filename# (str) – The filename of the file to open.

  • filetype# (str) – The format of the given file.

  • progress# (ProgressCallback) – A callback that will be repeatedly called with an updated progress value if an import step occurs. Can be None if no progress is desired.

Returns

The status of the open operation, whether it succeeded or failed (and how it failed).

Return type

ReplayStatus

RecordedMachineIdent()

Retrieves the identifying string describing what type of machine created this capture.

Returns

A string identifying the machine ident used to make the capture.

Return type

str

SetMetadata(driverName, machineIdent, thumbType, thumbWidth, thumbHeight, thumbData, timeBase, timeFreq)

Sets the matadata for this capture handle.

This function may only be called if the handle is ‘empty’ - i.e. no file has been opened with OpenFile() or OpenBuffer().

Note

The only supported values for SetMetadata.thumbType are FileType.JPG, FileType.PNG, FileType.TGA, and FileType.BMP.

Parameters
  • driverName# (str) – The name of the driver. Must be a recognised driver name (even if replay support for that driver is not compiled in locally.

  • machineIdent# (int) – The encoded machine identity value. Optional value and can be left to 0, as the bits to set are internally defined, so only generally useful if copying a machine ident from an existing capture.

  • thumbType# (FileType) – The file type of the thumbnail. Ignored if SetMetadata.thumbData is empty.

  • thumbWidth# (int) – The width of the thumbnail. Ignored if SetMetadata.thumbData is empty.

  • thumbHeight# (int) – The height of the thumbnail. Ignored if SetMetadata.thumbData is empty.

  • thumbData# (bytes) – The raw data of the thumbnail. If empty, no thumbnail is set.

  • timeBase# (int) – The base value for timestamps in the capture. Can be set to 0 to indicate that timestamps are already capture relative.

  • timeFreq# (float) – The frequency for timestamps and durations to be divided by to convert to microseconds. Can be set to 1.0 to indicate that timestamps and durations are already in microseconds.

SetStructuredData(file)

Sets the structured data for this capture.

This allows calling code to populate a capture out of generated structured data. In combination with SetMetadata() this allows a purely in-memory creation of a file to be saved out with Convert().

The data is copied internally so it can be destroyed after calling this function.

Parameters

file# (SDFile) – The structured data representing the file.

Shutdown()

Closes the file handle.

TimestampBase()

Retrieves the timestamp basis that all timestamps in the capture are relative to. May be 0 if all timestamps are already absolute.

  • sub# (Subresource) – The subresource within this texture to use.

  • typeCast# (CompType) – If possible interpret the texture with this type instead of its normal type. If set to CompType.Typeless then no cast is applied, otherwise where allowed the texture data will be reinterpreted - e.g. from unsigned integers to floats, or to unsigned normalised values.

  • minval# (float) – The lower end of the smallest bucket. If any values are below this, they are not added to any bucket.

  • maxval# (float) – The upper end of the largest bucket. If any values are above this, they are not added to any bucket.

GetSupportedWindowSystems()

Retrieves the supported WindowingSystem systems by the local system.

Returns

The list of supported systems.

Return type

List[WindowingSystem]

GetTargetShaderEncodings()

Retrieve the list of supported ShaderEncoding which can be build using BuildTargetShader().

The list is sorted in priority order, so if the caller has a shader in a form but could compile/translate it to another, prefer to satisfy the first encoding before later encodings.

This typically means the ‘native’ encoding is listed first, and then subsequent encodings are compiled internally - so compiling externally could be preferable as it allows better customisation of the compile process or using alternate/updated tools.

Returns

The list of target shader encodings available.

Return type

List[ShaderEncoding]

See also GetPipelineState().

Returns

The current Vulkan pipeline state.

Return type

VKState

PickPixel(textureId, x, y, sub, typeCast)

Retrieve the contents of a particular pixel in a texture.

Note

X and Y co-ordinates are always considered to be top-left, even on GL, for consistency between APIs and preventing the need for API-specific code in most cases. This means if co-ordinates are fetched from e.g. viewport or scissor data or other GL pipeline state which is perhaps in bottom-left co-ordinates, care must be taken to translate them.

Parameters
  • textureId# (ResourceId) – The texture to pick the pixel from.

  • x# (int) – The x co-ordinate to pick from.

  • y# (int) – The y co-ordinate to pick from.

  • sub# (Subresource) – The subresource within this texture to use.

  • typeCast# (CompType) – If possible interpret the texture with this type instead of its normal type. If set to CompType.Typeless then no cast is applied, otherwise where allowed the texture data will be reinterpreted - e.g. from unsigned integers to floats, or to unsigned normalised values.

Returns

The contents of the pixel.

Return type

PixelValue

PixelHistory(texture, x, y, sub, typeCast)

Retrieve the history of modifications to the selected pixel on the selected texture.

Note

X and Y co-ordinates are always considered to be top-left, even on GL, for consistency between APIs and preventing the need for API-specific code in most cases. This means if co-ordinates are fetched from e.g. viewport or scissor data or other GL pipeline state which is perhaps in bottom-left co-ordinates, care must be taken to translate them.

Parameters
  • texture# (ResourceId) – The texture to search for modifications.

  • x# (int) – The x co-ordinate.

  • y# (int) – The y co-ordinate.

  • sub# (Subresource) – The subresource within this texture to use.

  • typeCast# (CompType) – If possible interpret the texture with this type instead of its normal type. If set to CompType.Typeless then no cast is applied, otherwise where allowed the texture data will be reinterpreted - e.g. from unsigned integers to floats, or to unsigned normalised values.

Returns

The list of pixel history events.

Return type

List[PixelModification]

RemoveReplacement(id)

Remove any previously specified replacement for an object.

See ReplaceResource().

Parameters

id# (ResourceId) – The id of the original resource that was previously being substituted.

ReplaceResource(original, replacement)

Replace one resource with another for subsequent replay and analysis work.

This is commonly used for modifying the capture by selectively replacing resources with newly created resources.

See BuildTargetShader(), RemoveReplacement().

Parameters
  • original# (ResourceId) – The id of the original resource that should be substituted.

  • replacement# (ResourceId) – The id of the new resource that should be used instead.

ReplayLoop(window, texid)

Goes into a blocking loop, repeatedly replaying the open capture as fast as possible, displaying the selected texture in a default unscaled manner to the given output window.

The function won’t return until CancelReplayLoop() is called. Since this function is blocking, that function must be called from another thread.

Parameters
SaveTexture(saveData, path)

Save a texture to a file on disk, with possible transformation to map a complex texture to something compatible with the target file format.

Parameters
  • saveData# (TextureSave) – The configuration settings of which texture to save, and how

  • path# (str) – The path to save to on disk.

Returns

True if the texture was saved successfully, False otherwise.

Return type

bool

SetCustomShaderIncludes(directories)

Sets a list of directories to search for include files when compiling custom shaders with the internal shader compiler.

Note

This is currently only supported for D3D11 and D3D12. For Vulkan includes can be supported via configuring an external compiler to SPIR-V which is ingested.

Parameters

directories# (List[str]) – The absolute paths of the directories.

SetFrameEvent(eventId, force)

Move the replay to reflect the state immediately after the given eventId.

Parameters
  • eventId# (int) – The eventId to move to.

  • force# (bool) – True if the internal replay should refresh even if the eventId is already current. This can be useful if external factors might cause the replay to vary.

Shutdown()

Shutdown and destroy the current interface and all outputs that have been created.

class renderdoc.ReplayOptions

The options controlling how replay of a capture should be performed

apiValidation

Replay with API validation enabled and use debug messages from there, ignoring any that may be contained in the capture.

The default is not to do any validation.

Note

RenderDoc does not handle invalid API use in the general case so validation should still be performed at runtime in your program for ground truth results.

forceGPUDeviceID

Force the selection of a GPU by device ID. This allows overriding which GPU is used to replay on.

When set to 0, specifies no particular device.

See forceGPUDeviceID for a full explanation of GPU selection override.

forceGPUDriverName

Force the selection of a GPU by driver name. This allows overriding which GPU is used to replay on.

When set to an empty string, specifies no particular driver.

See forceGPUDeviceID for a full explanation of GPU selection override.

forceGPUVendor

Force the selection of a GPU by vendor ID. This allows overriding which GPU is used to replay on, even if a different GPU would be the best match for the capture.

When set to GPUVendor.Unknown, specifies no particular vendor.

See also forceGPUDeviceID and forceGPUDriverName. Available GPUs can be enumerated using CaptureAccess.GetAvailableGPUs().

The default is not to do any override. The capture contains information about what GPU was used, and the closest matching GPU is used on replay.

Note

If a GPU is forced that is not available or not supported for a given capture, such as when GPUs are only available for some APIs and not others, the default GPU selection will be used. If a GPU is available for a capture but fails to open however then there is no fallback to a default GPU.

OpenGL does not support GPU selection so the default method (which effectively does nothing) will always be used.

optimisation

How much optimisation should be done, potentially at the cost of correctness.

The default is ReplayOptimisationLevel.Balanced.

class renderdoc.ReplayOptimisationLevel(value)

The level of optimisation used in

NoOptimisation

Completely disabled, no optimisation will be used at all.

Conservative

Optimisation is used when it doesn’t interfere with replay correctness.

Balanced

Optimisation is used when it has minimal impact on replay correctness. This could include e.g. resources appearing cleared instead of containing contents from prior frames where those resources are written to before being read.

Fastest

All possible optimisations are enabled as long as they do not cause invalid/incorrect replay. This could result in side-effects like data from one replay being visible early in another replay, if it’s known that the data will be overwritten before being used.

class renderdoc.APIProperties

Gives some API-specific information about the capture.

degraded

True if the capture was loaded successfully but running in a degraded mode - e.g. with software rendering, or with some functionality disabled due to lack of support.

localRenderer

The GraphicsAPI used to render the log. For remote replay this could be different to the above, and lets the UI make decisions e.g. to flip rendering of images.

pipelineType

The GraphicsAPI of the actual log/capture.

pixelHistory

(True if the API supports viewing pixel history.

remoteReplay

True if the capture is being replayed over a remote connection.

rgpCapture

True if the driver and system are configured to allow creating RGP captures.

shaderDebugging

(True if the API supports shader debugging.

shadersMutable

True if the driver mutates shader reflection structures from event to event. Currently this is only true for OpenGL where the superfluous indirect in the binding model must be worked around by re-sorting bindings.

vendor

The GPUVendor of the active GPU being used.

Device Protocols

class renderdoc.DeviceProtocolController

An interface for enumerating and controlling remote devices.

GetDevices()

Returns a list of devices currently available through the given protocol.

Until a device is enumerated through this function it may not be available for connection through other methods such as target control or remote server access, even if the device is physically connected, due to initialisation happening only when enumerated.

The returned string is the hostname of the device, which can be connected via protocol://hostname with interfaces that take a hostname.

Returns

A list of the devices currently available.

Return type

List[str]

GetFriendlyName(URL)

Retrieves the user friendly name of the given device. This may be easier for a user to correlate to a device than the hostname which may be only a programmatic identifier.

Parameters

URL# (str) – The URL of the device in the form protocol://host, with protocol as returned by GetProtocolName() and host as returned by GetDevices().

Returns

A string identifying the device.

Return type

str

GetProtocolName()

Retrieves the name of this protocol as passed to GetDeviceProtocolController().

Returns

A string identifying the protocol.

Return type

str

IsSupported(URL)

Query if the device supports RenderDoc capture and replay.

Parameters

URL# (str) – The URL of the device in the form protocol://host, with protocol as returned by GetProtocolName() and host as returned by GetDevices().

Parameters

URL# (str) – The URL of the device in the form protocol://host, with protocol as returned by GetProtocolName() and host as returned by GetDevices().

Returns

True if the device supports multiple programs, False otherwise.

Return type

bool

renderdoc.GetSupportedDeviceProtocols()

Retrieve the set of device protocols supported (see GetDeviceProtocolController()).

Returns

The supported device protocols.

Return type

List[str]

renderdoc.GetDeviceProtocolController(protocol)

Creates a DeviceProtocolController that provides device-specific controls.

This interface is intended to allow closer integration with remote devices.

Note

Note that the use of scripting with Android is explicitly not supported due to the inherent fragility and unreliability of the Android platform. This interface is designed primarily for internal use and no support will be provided for Android-specific problems encountered using this.

This function will not block, however the protocol may still be initialising when it is returned so immediate use of it may block.

Parameters

protocol# (str) – The protocol to fetch a controller for.

Returns

A handle to the protocol controller, or None if something went wrong such as an unsupported protocol being specified.

Return type

DeviceProtocolController

Remote Servers

class renderdoc.RemoteServer

A connection to a running remote RenderDoc server on another machine. This allows the transfer of captures to and from the local machine, as well as remotely replaying a capture with a local proxy renderer, so that captures that are not supported locally can still be debugged with as much work as possible happening on the local machine.

NoPreference

No preference for a particular value, see ReplayController.DebugPixel().

CloseCapture(rend)

Close a capture analysis handle previously opened by OpenCapture().

Parameters

rend# (ReplayController) – The ReplayController that is to be closed.

CopyCaptureFromRemote(remotepath, localpath, progress)

Copy a capture file that is stored on the remote system to the local system.

This function will block until the copy is fully complete, or an error has occurred.

Parameters
  • remotepath# (str) – The remote path where the file should be copied from.

  • localpath# (str) – The local path where the file should be saved.

  • progress# (ProgressCallback) – A callback that will be repeatedly called with an updated progress value for the copy. Can be None if no progress is desired.

CopyCaptureToRemote(filename, progress)

Copy a capture file that is stored on the local system to the remote system.

This function will block until the copy is fully complete, or an error has occurred.

This is primarily useful for when a capture is only stored locally and must be replayed remotely, as the capture must be available on the machine where the replay happens.

Parameters
  • filename# (str) – The path to the file on the local system.

  • progress# (ProgressCallback) – A callback that will be repeatedly called with an updated progress value for the copy. Can be None if no progress is desired.

Returns

The path on the remote system where the capture was saved temporarily.

Return type

str

ExecuteAndInject(app, workingDir, cmdLine, env, opts)

Launch an application and inject into it to allow capturing.

This happens on the remote system, so all paths are relative to the remote filesystem.

Parameters
  • app# (str) – The path to the application to run.

  • workingDir# (str) – The working directory to use when running the application. If blank, the directory containing the application is used.

  • cmdLine# (str) – The command line to use when running the application, it will be processed in a platform specific way to generate arguments.

  • env# (List[EnvironmentModification]) – Any environment changes that should be made when running the program.

  • opts# (CaptureOptions) – The capture options to use when injecting into the program.

Returns

The ExecuteResult indicating both the status of the operation (success or failure) and any reason for failure, or else the ident where the new application is listening for target control if everything succeeded.

Return type

ExecuteResult

GetHomeFolder()

Retrieve the path on the remote system where browsing can begin.

Returns

The ‘home’ path where browsing for files or folders can begin.

Return type

str

Retrieve the contents of a folder path on the remote system.

If an error occurs, a single PathEntry will be returned with appropriate error flags.

Parameters

path# (str) – The remote path to list.

Returns

The contents of the specified folder.

Return type

List[PathEntry]

LocalProxies()

Retrieve a list of renderers available for local proxying.

These will be strings like “D3D11” or “OpenGL”.

Returns

A list of names of the local proxies.

Return type

List[str]

OpenCapture(proxyid, logfile, opts, progress)

Open a capture file for remote capture and replay. The capture will be opened and replayed on the remote system, and proxied to the local system with a given renderer. As much work as possible will happen locally to save on bandwidth, processing and latency.

This function will block until the capture is fully opened on the remote system and ready for use, or an error has occurred.

Note

You must close the resulting ReplayController with the CloseCapture() function to ensure the local proxy is correctly tidied up, instead of using ReplayController.Shutdown().

Parameters
  • proxyid# (int) – The index in the array returned by LocalProxies() to use as a local proxy, or NoPreference to indicate no preference for any proxy.

  • logfile# (str) – The path on the remote system where the file is. If the file is only available locally you can use CopyCaptureToRemote() to transfer it over the remote connection.

  • opts# (ReplayOptions) – The options controlling how the capture should be replayed.

  • progress# (ProgressCallback) – A callback that will be repeatedly called with an updated progress value for the opening. Can be None if no progress is desired.

Returns

A tuple containing the status of opening the capture, whether success or failure, and the resulting ReplayController handle if successful.

Return type

Tuple[ReplayStatus,ReplayController]

Ping()

Pings the remote server to ensure the connection is still alive.

Returns

True if the ping was sent and received successfully, False if something went wrong and the connection is no longer alive.

Return type

bool

RemoteSupportedReplays()

Retrieve a list of renderers supported by the remote server.

These will be strings like “D3D11” or “OpenGL”.

Returns

A list of names of the remote renderers.

Return type

List[str]

ShutdownConnection()

Closes the connection without affecting the running server.

ShutdownServerAndConnection()

Closes the connection and also tells the running server to close.

TakeOwnershipCapture(filename)

Take ownership over a capture file.

Initially when a capture is made, it is owned by the injected library in the application. It passes ownership to any program that is connected via target control that is notified about the capture, which is then responsible for either saving the file or deleting it if it’s unwanted.

Passing ownership of a file to the remote server means that it will be kept around for future use until the server closes, at which point it will delete any files it owns.

Parameters

filename# (str) – The remote path to take ownership of.

renderdoc.CreateRemoteServerConnection(URL)

Create a connection to a remote server running on given hostname.

Parameters

URL# (str) – The hostname to connect to, if blank then localhost is used. If no protocol is specified then default TCP enumeration happens.

The status of opening the connection, whether success or failure, and a RemoteServer instance if it were successful

Return type

Tuple[ReplayStatus,RemoteServer]

renderdoc.CheckRemoteServerConnection(URL)

Check the connection to a remote server running on given hostname.

This should be preferred to CreateRemoteServerConnection() when no connection is desired, as the status can be checked without interfering with making connections.

Parameters

URL# (str) – The hostname to connect to, if blank then localhost is used. If no protocol is specified then default TCP enumeration happens.

Returns

The status of the server.

Return type

ReplayStatus

renderdoc.BecomeRemoteServer(listenhost, killReplay, previewWindow)
