A filter using color keys can get a default color from the video renderer. The default color key can then be installed into the window using IOverlay::SetColorKey.

The colors returned through this method depend on the current display mode.

  • If the colors are 8-bit palettized, they will be bright system colors (such as magenta).
  • If the display is in a true-color mode, they will be shades of black.

The IOverlay interface ensures that separate instances of the renderer on the same computer get different color keys so that overlays do not conflict.
