Well, those screen shots don't look like what you described, I could say
more if you posted code :-)
You should also note, that in the end, with the:
Draw scaled source image through mask with the shape of the
You've just reinvented what we were saying all along, except that you
are trying to use a transformed rectangular mask image to get the
mask shape, rather than just drawing a rectangle using trapezoids.
What you are describing might be easier if you are using RENDER
directly, but is certainly far harder once you have the necessary
infrastructure to draw shapes.
