crunch/crnlib is a lossy texture compression tool and library for developers that distributes and uses content in the DXT1/5/N or 3DC/BC5 compressed mipmapped texture formats. crnlib can compress mipmapped 2D textures and cubemaps to .8-1.25 bits/texel, and normal maps to 1.75-2 bits/texel. crnlib's quality and performance is competitive to transform-based solutions, or other offline/real-time DXTn compressors such as squish or ATI_Compress. crnlib implements a new form of "clustered" DXTn compression, with a compressed texture data format that was carefully designed to be very quickly transcodable directly to raw DXTn texture bits with no intermediate recompression step or individual pixel-level operations. The typical single threaded transcode to DXTn rate is equivalent to 100-250 megatexels/sec. Fast random access to individual mipmap levels is supported.
NeoTextureEdit is an easy to use graph-based procedural seamless texture editor. NeoTexture is the associated run-time generation library. Using continuous basis functions, it can generate arbitrary resolution images without quality degradation. Its main purpose is to produce high-quality textures for real time rendering applications that can be stored in a few kB and synthesized on application startup. But it can also be used to generate off-line images.
TextureBuilder is a program to simplify the task of building several texture formats from six skybox images. The six different images represent the front, back, left, right, top, and bottom sides of a cube. They are combined to either a cross texture with the horizontal part up, a cross texture with the horizontal part down, a sideways cross texture, or a texture set including script files for the Torque 3D game engine.
