SDL Wiki


Copy an existing surface to a new surface of the specified format enum.


SDL_Surface* SDL_ConvertSurfaceFormat
    (SDL_Surface * src, Uint32 pixel_format, Uint32 flags);

Function Parameters


the existing SDL_Surface structure to convert


the SDL_PixelFormatEnum that the new surface is optimized for


the flags are unused and should be set to 0; this is a leftover from SDL 1.2's API

Return Value

Returns the new SDL_Surface structure that is created or NULL if it fails; call SDL_GetError() for more information.


This function operates just like SDL_ConvertSurface(), but accepts an SDL_PixelFormatEnum value instead of an SDL_PixelFormat structure. As such, it might be easier to call but it doesn't have access to palette information for the destination surface, in case that would be important.
