I seem to recall trying to do some of this with Qt but ran into 
problems.  The difficulty was that QPainter (which does have a 
drawPolygon method) uses X-Windows underneath and because the MHEG code 
is running on a different thread than the display code things went badly 
wrong.  Maybe someone has some code to draw a polygon directly to a 
QImage.  It shouldn't be hard.
