View Full Version : From DXT5 to DXT3

February 16th, 2010, 02:30
Hi! In my system (XP+Pentium 4 2.80+2G Ram) DDS's texture are at the best in DXT3 format.
So, usually, I convert all texture in DXT3 with DXTBpm. There is a batch file to convert a group of this files?
For convert BMP to DDS I use a DOS batch file with Imagetool, but I do not know how alter this to work in DDS conversion from DXT5 (or DXT1) to DXT3.
Can anyone help me? :icon_lol:
Thanks a lot in advance.... :medals:

Best regards,

Provided you know how to edit a batch file (hint: open it with MS Notepad):

Put this

imagetool -batch -nogui -nomip -dxt3 -dds -nodither -r *.dds
into a new batchfile or edit your old one accordingly.

It will convert *.dds textures to DXT3.
