I have two DSPOOL_DEFAULT surfaces belonging to different D3D devices and I need to BitBlt data from one surface to another. What is the best way to do it? The only thing I can imagine is to lock both surfaces and call CopyMemory(). As far as I understand it is a data transfer from video memory to video memory. Will it take long the CPU to copy this kind of memory or will video driver/card detect and manage this transfer itself? Does it make any sense to lock small rectangles of the surfaces to gain some extra performance? Does IDirect3DDevice9 copy video memory to system memory during surface locks? Taras
