Transparent DDS


Recommended Posts

I'm working on game texture files, most editing. When I open a transparent DDS file (usually a logo), and change the color or the the text, replace the text, or just change the color of the single texture in the file, I save it. Problem is Paint.net is not saving as the original file parameters, the before transparent area will show up as white or black background, when there should be "nothing" there in that area. Pay no attention to the file being saved, attached picture is showing the "only" save options I have. Saving as opaque/1-bit Alpha  is not working.

I believe they need to be saved as When alpha transparent mode, when opaque is probably the opposite of what I want. Does the 2nd or 3rd  alpha option save as transparent, or does Paint.net not support what I want to do?

Does this plugin give you any other options?

IMPORTANT:  When encoding an RGBA image into a format using 1-bit
        alpha, any texels with an alpha component less than 0.5 end up with an
        alpha of 0.0 and any texels with an alpha component greater than or
        equal to 0.5 end up with an alpha of 1.0.  When encoding an RGBA image
        into the COMPRESSED_RGBA_S3TC_DXT1_EXT format, the resulting red,
        green, and blue components of any texels with a final alpha of 0.0
        will automatically be zero (black).

 

Can you confirm what the color picker shows (RGBA) when you click on the transparent areas in the image?
