+# hybrid-screenclone
+
+This is a reimplementation of [hybrid-windump][hybrid-windump] with the
+opposite use-case: doing all rendering using the integrated intel card and
+using the additional card just to get more outputs (e.g. a triple-head with
+ThinkPad T420). As such, it uses the DAMAGE extension to avoid unnecessary
+redraws and the RECORD extension to capture mouse movements, which are
+translated to mouse movements on the destination X server.
+
+For this to work correctly, an additional virtual Xinerama screen must be
+available. To get one, see my [virtual CRTC for intel][patch] patch.
