I am capturing an image of the current screen and then reuse it as a texture. However it doesn’t work for some reason:

yield(get_tree(), "idle_frame")
yield(get_tree(), "idle_frame")

var capture = get_viewport().get_screen_capture()

var texture =
texture.create(capture.get_width(), capture.get_height(), capture.get_format())

is this happening on windows or in Android ?

I am using Windows. I am also running this code twice. It works fine the first time, but on the second try it doesn’t work anymore.
