Function Documentation

NvMediaStatus NvMedia2DBlitEx ( NvMedia2D i2d,
NvMediaImage dstSurface,
const NvMediaRect dstRect,
NvMediaImage srcSurface,
const NvMediaRect srcRect,
const NvMedia2DBlitParameters params,
NvMedia2DBlitParametersOut paramsOut 

Performs a 2D blit operation with supplementary return values.

A blit transfers pixels from a source surface to a destination surface, applying a variety of transformations to the pixel values on the way. Note that for a YUV surface type with 16-bit depth, only scale and crop are supported. Format conversion is not supported.

The interface aims at making the typical uses of normal pixel copy easy, by not mandating the setting of advanced blit parameters unless they are actually required.

Passing in NULL as params invokes a standard pixel copy blit without additional transformations. If the dimensions of the source rectangle do not match the dimensions of the destination rectangle, pixels are scaled to fit the destination rectangle. The filtering mode for the scale defaults to NVMEDIA_2D_STRETCH_FILTER_LOW. Additional filtering modes are available by setting the corresponding parameter in NvMedia2DBlitParameters.

Passing in NULL as srcRect defaults to a source rectangle the size of the full source surface, likewise for dstRect and the destination surface.

If paramsOut is not NULL, the blit operation stores supplementary return values for the blit to the structure pointed to by paramsOut, if applicable. If paramsOut is NULL, no supplementry information is returned.

Supplementary values are returned when using the blit flag:

NVMEDIA_2D_BLIT_FLAG_RETURN_CRC returns a CRC value of blitted pixels.

A straight pixel copy between surfaces of the same dimensions (but not necessarily the same bit depth or even color format) is performed by:

NvMedia2DBlitEx(i2d, dst, NULL, src, NULL, NULL, NULL);
[in]i2dA pointer to a i2d Image 2D object.
[in]dstSurfaceA pointer to a destination surface.
[in]dstRectA pointer to a destination rectangle. For a YUV surface type with 16-bit depth, the x0 and y0 of dstRect must be 0.
[in]srcSurfaceA pointer to a source surface.
[in]srcRectA pointer to a source rectangle.
[in]paramsA pointer to parameters.
[out]paramsOutA pointer to returned parameters.
NvMediaStatus, the completion status of the operation: NVMEDIA_STATUS_OK if succcessful, or NVMEDIA_STATUS_BAD_PARAMETER if any mandatory pointer is invalid.
NvMediaStatus NvMedia2DCopyPlane ( NvMediaImage dstSurface,
uint32_t  dstPlane,
NvMediaImage srcSurface,
uint32_t  srcPlane 

Copies a plane of a YUV image to another YUV image.

The source and the destination must have the same format.

[in]dstSurfaceA pointer to a destination surface.
[in]dstPlaneDestination plane.
[in]srcSurfaceA pointer to the source surface.
[in]srcPlaneSource plane.
NvMediaStatus, the completion status of the operation:
NvMedia2D* NvMedia2DCreate ( NvMediaDevice device)

Creates a 2D object.

[in]deviceA pointer to the NvMediaDevice device this 2D object will use.
NvMedia2D, the new 2D object's handle if successful, or NULL otherwise.
void NvMedia2DDestroy ( NvMedia2D i2d)

Destroys a 2D object.

[in]i2dA pointer to the 2D object to destroy.
