In this section, we will summarize the flow of swapchain creation and the building of the presentation window. It consists of two parts: initialization and rendering.

Initialization

The initialization process initializes, creates, and processes the swapchain. The swapchain is not yet connected to the framebuffer render process and the primitives. Therefore, the rendered output will be a blank presentation window for now.

First, VulkanRenderer initializes the presentation window and creates a native platform-specific empty window (500 x 500). This window renders the swapchain's front buffer drawing image.
