Hi, I'm doing some work with DirectX for a College project, and I've just started learning DirectX - but I need something done in a bit of a hurry ( i.e. by tomorrow ). What I need to do is convert some text into a bitmap image. Can someone please point to a quick tutorial on how to do this? Thanks in advance.

What do you mean by "convert some text into a bitmap image"?


Simply, instead of drawing the text on the screen I want to write it to a bitmap file.

You can render to texture, then save the texture as a bitmap file. Googling for these terms should yield correct results.

Alternately, a PHP server with GD installed will be just fine, if not better.
