See BC7 (DXT?) DDS texture channels


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Longtime user and lurker here,

 

I just learned Paint.net got native support for the newer DDS file formats, so I thought I'd get back into making some skins, starting with DS3 and DMC V.

 

However, I'm running into a bit of a problem, when I open the texture, I'm not seeing the proper channels like in say Photoshop CC 2018.

 

This might be a noob question, how can I open the DDS file in Paint.net in the same way as Photoshop CC 2018 opens it?

 

See examples :

Thank you for any help you can give me on this topic.

 

PS : if this isn't the correct subforum, please move this topic into the right one. Thank you mods.

That is not currently possible.

Hopefully Paint.NET will have a channel selection option at some point in the future.

 

Unfortunately, many games use the DDS alpha channel for things other than transparency.

The small increase in performance you get coding in C++ over C# is hardly enough to offset the headache of coding in the C++ language. ~BoltBait

Thanks for the info Null54.

 

I was hoping I wouldn't have to use other programs.

 

Anyways, I have my answer the mods can close the thread.
