Slug Production : S3TC Compression --> Excellent !


I’ve found a paper from NVIDIA for using S3TC compression.
It’s works well !

Image without compression :

Compression : DXTC 1
It’s not good …

Compression : DXTC 3
It’s better

Compression : DXTC 5
It’s excellent !

The reason it looks so bad with DXTC1 is because of a hardware bug that has been in all nVidia hardware since the original GF. I’m still confused as why they don’t fix it. On all non-nVidia boards the DXTC1 pic would look identical to DXTC3.
