Question about DDS BC5s format

Question about DDS BC5s format

Luis C.'s picture

I know that intel GPA support DDS BC5s format,  but I dont know if there are a tool for read this file, because the common programs not support this format.

someone know a plugin or tool for read and convert a DDS file with this format to a readable DDS (DXT1 - DXT5)?

thanks

(Note: I know that I can export textures from GPA to other formats, but I need to know if is possible to export directly to DDS with BC5s format and read this file)

Hi,

I haven't used this myself, but I've seen that there's a plugin for GIMP that allows you to read/write DDS files: http://registry.gimp.org/node/70

I would suggest trying this plugin -- please let us know if this works for you.

Regards,

Neal

Hello,

A little more searching came up with this page: http://www.softpedia.com/hubs/View-DDS

Again, I don't know whether these programs allow input of DDS BC5s, but these are a good start.

Regards,

Neal

ps-> it would also help people here if you could tell us what programs you've already tried but found didn't work.

Hi,

Sorry these didn't work... I can try a few people here in Intel, but you might also want to post your request on this forum.
