P3D V4 - BC7 texture compression not working.

Recommended Posts

Interested to hear if anyone has managed to get P3D V4 to display any textures in BC7 format? I have converted some aircraft textures to BC7.. they look absolutely perfect in a Direct Draw window, exactly the same as DXT5 (with obviously the higher quality). Use it in P3D and black texture.

The same base uncompressed bitmap was used with exactly the same format. Into BC3 (DXT5) it works fine.. BC7 nope.

Slightly disappointing because the quality of BC7 is indistinguishable from the base bitmap, DXT5 has all the usual artifacts. If we could use BC7 we would get bitmap quality at DXT5 filesize.
