Recommended Posts

Guest fsjunkey

What's the difference between DXT1 and DXT3? Which is best to use for AI textures for better framerates? Thanks.

DXT1 has no reflections, where DXT3 has, use DXT3 for AI textures, they are fine for this purpose.Also, you will save a lot of HDD space, and increase performance if you convert all of your 32-bit textures to DXT3, with minimal IQ loss.Dan.

Hi, me again. I noticed that the program "GATraffic" has an nvidiatexture conversion program. Anyone have any experience with this one? Is it any better than imagetool and does anyone know if it converts to dxt1 or dxt3? Thanks
