Fade into fullscreen-Mode with DirectX

Posted on 2002-04-24

Last Modified: 2011-09-20
How can I accomplish a smooth blendover into the DirectX fullscreen mode. I tried capturing the screen using GetFrontBuffer and copy this one into the backbuffer and change gamma-value using SetGammaRamp, but after the call of SetGammaRamp the screen changes instantly to black.

All help appreciated, although I'm mainly interested in code samples

Thx in advance

Use D3D to draw a black fullscreen texture with increasing alpha every iteration of the fade loop.  This will cause the black texture to be factored in more each cycle causing a fade out.

You can use this fade for other, more interesting effects too.  Try a non-black texture (like the frame from the next stage).
