A new step in the Vulkan render engine, the implementation of special render buffers  to connect interactive tools:
1- the ‘Object’ buffer for selection of surfaces (smart picking): each pixel color maps to one surface,
2- the ‘Position’ buffer for positioning of the camera’s point of interest: each pixel gives the coordinates of the first surface at this location.
