View Full Version : 3d Texture Compression

06-12-2005, 03:58 PM
How can I compress a 3d texture when my program is running. I have 3d textures right now in RGB format.

I am using NVidia GeFroce FX 5200 graphics card with 128 MB memory. I am using OpenGL and C for programming.

Will texture compression allow me to load more textures in the memory at a time.

I'd suggest reading up on the texture compression extension (http://oss.sgi.com/projects/ogl-sample/registry/ARB/texture_compression.txt) .
