ReluctantRobot Posted August 27, 2013 Share Posted August 27, 2013 Hello, I have a question I was hoping someone could help me with. Apologies in advance if this is the wrong place to ask, but I'm assuming this falls under general plugin troubleshooting. I'm trying to use the Command Line version of PDNBulkUpdater to convert a number of files to .dds format. Paint.NET has a number of compression options that help lead to a superior quality result, and the bulk converter allows you to use the /ft command to set filetype specific options. For example, >PDNBulkUpdaterCmd test01.png /oft:dds /ft:dds:GenerateMipMaps:true creates a dds file with mipmaps included. ...GenerateMipMaps:false creates one without. My problem is several of the options are "StaticListChoiceProperty", and I have no way of finding out what the proper commands for these options are. Ideally I would want to set FileFormat (DXT1 or DXT5 based on alpha usage, for example) and CompressorType; I have been unable to set either. As a test, I tried to output a tga file setting the BitDepth (which also uses a StaticListChoiceProperty). I tried a number of options, including 24, "24", 24_bit, 24-bit, "24 bit", and 0. All were refused. The specific error message I get (using the tga attempt as an example) is as follows: "Error: '0' is an invalid value for property 'bitdepth' in file type '.tga'", with '0' being replaced by my current attempt. I'm assuming there's some sort of standardized nomenclature I should be using but I've had no luck finding it. If anyone could tell me what I should be doing to set the dds file generation options, or point me in the direction of documentation to that effect, I'd be very grateful!
