How to Save a Volume Texture (DDS) Using PhotoShop and nVidia’s Texture Tools

E-mail Print PDF

I recently needed to save out a volume texture and it wasn't readily apparent how to do this. The most likely ways seemed to be a strip or a series of square layers. I tried both and neither worked. I kept ending up with just one level of depth in my texture. The trick it turns out was to use a horizontal strip (I had been trying a vertical strip). For instance if you want a 32 x 32 texture with 4 levels of depth, the texture should be 128 wide by 32 high. When you save make sure to choose Volume Texture in the DDS options that come up. I also turn off mipmap generation.

The thing that bothers me about not being able to find the solution quickly is that it should have been simple. When choosing Volume Texture in the save options, a hint could have popped up, or been placed next to the selection box. Or even better, three possible ways to create the texture seem obvious. You could have a vertical strip, a horizontal strip, or use layers. Why not just program it to work with all three. Just putting in a little more effort to polish the feature would make the option much more user friendly.

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is important and all. However think of if
you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!
Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this website could undeniably be one of the very best in its field.
Great blog!

Americans consume six times the amount of salt that the body needs daily.
This will give your glutes a great workout as
well as decrease the odds of injury. It's easy to find a yoga routine to help you work
on those stomach muscles, you need to look for a yoga routine that includes supine poses and other postures that work that belly.
