Annotator mirroring problem

Recommended Posts

Folks, when I look at my photo texture .bmps in Annotator, they are mirrored North-South. This wouldn't matter too much, except that the autogen is placed AS IF the image was not mirrored. So it is in the wrong place.The photo .bmps are generated by SBuilder and are low-res.Any ideas?Jon

Hello Jon,When you make photo scenery with the MS resample tool, the "256 X 256 custom textures" are fine. If you make photo scenery as a tiling of VTP LOD13 squares (texture = 252 or 253 ), as it is the case of SB, the same "256 X 256 custom textures" appear flipped in the sim. So, you need to reverse them to show OK on the sim. This has been discussed here in many occasions. Try a search with "VTP" "texture" "flip" "vertical" and you get many topics. Luisps: there are image programmes that support "batch flipping" - XNview seems to be one.

Hi Jon,yup, that's the case with any textures placed via VTP2 polys.I have been using XNView - http://www.xnview.com/ - to "batch flip" the photo tiles before processing in annotator and then again to re-flip.Cheers, Holger Edit: Hi Luis, OK you win :-beerchug

Hi Horst,good point! I guess one keeps the original bmp tiles and thus doesn't need to flip 'em back.Cheers, Holger

Lars Hoyer and Ken Peters are developing a nifty Annotator replacement program called AGenT which includes the flipping function built in. The program is still in testing and there are bugs, but it is very cool.Jon
