Microsoft DirectX 9.0


The GetCutPoint method retrieves the cut point. If you render a transition as a cut, the cut point is the time when the transition cuts from one source to the next. By default, this value is the middle of the transition. For example, in a transition that spans one second, the default cut point is 0.5 seconds into the transition.


HRESULT GetCutPoint(



Pointer to a variable that receives the cut point, relative to the start time of the transition, in 100-nanosecond units.
