Direct3D 9 2D Features...

Recommended Posts

I wasn''t expecting the SDK for DirectX 9 to be released so soon, after all it was only supposed to come out in fall so of course I was expecting it around spring. Anyway Microsoft seems to say Direct3D 9 has many 2D features in it such as the scissors and I believe it said something about a blit feature. Anyway, I can''t seem to figure out what the heck I''m supposed to do to get 2D. Someone said D3D9 allows you to use GDI operations directly onto the DX surface but well, a GDI blit most-likely wouldn''t be as fast as a built in directx one. I can''t find one in it so that I can''t try. Anyway I''m not even sure how I would go about using the GDI operations onto DirectX. I wouldnt use the windows HDC I''m sure.. that just wouldnt be right. If you guys can help me or direct me to help please do! Thanks, Kyle LaDuke
