NAME
       XvGetStill - capture a single frame of video from a drawable

SYNOPSIS
       #include <X11/extensions/Xvlib.h>

       int XvGetStill(Display *dpy, XvPortID port, Drawable d, GC gc,
                      int vx, int vy, unsigned int vw, unsigned int vh,
                      int dx, int dy, unsigned int dw, unsigned int dh);

ARGUMENTS
       dpy            Specifies the connection to the X server.

       port           Defines the port to which the still is output.

       d              Defines the drawable from which the still is to be
                      captured.  Pixmaps are currently not supported.

       gc             Defines the graphical context.  GC components are:
                      subwindow-mode, clip-x-origin, clip-y-origin, and clip-
                      mask.

       vx,vy,vw,vh    Define the location and size of the destination video
                      region into which the still is to be written.  vx and vy
                      define the xand y coordinates of the upper-left corner
                      of the video region; vwand vh define the width and
                      height, in pixels, of the video region.

       dx,dy,dw,dh    Define the location and size of the source drawable from
                      which the still image is to be captured.  dxand dy
                      define the xand y coordinates of the upper-left corner
                      of the drawable region; dwand dh define the width and
                      height, in pixels, of the drawable region.

DESCRIPTION
       captures a single frame of video from a drawable.  The position and
       size of the destination (video) rectangle is specified by vx, vy, vw,
       and vh.  The position and size of the source (drawable) rectangle is
       specified by dx, dy, dw, and dh.

       Drawable data is clipped to the bounds of the drawable, scaled to the
       requested video region size (or the closest size supported) and clipped
       to the bounds of the video encoding.  The contents of any region not
       updated with drawable data is undefined.

       If the port is grabbed by another client, this request is ignored, and
       an XvVideoNotify event with detail XvBusy is generated for the
       drawable.

RETURN VALUES
       [Success]
               Returned if XvGetStill(3) completed successfully.

       [XvBadExtension]
               Returned if the Xv extension is unavailable.

       [XvBadAlloc]
               Returned if XvGetStill(3) failed to allocate memory to process
               the request.

DIAGNOSTICS
       [XvBadPort]
               Generated if the requested port does not exist.

       [BadDrawable]
               Generated if the requested drawable does not exist.

       [BadGC] Generated if the requested graphics context does not exist.

       [BadAlloc]
               Generated if there were insufficient resources to process the
               request.
