Class ARBCompressedTexturePixelStorage

  • public final class ARBCompressedTexturePixelStorage
    extends java.lang.Object
    Native bindings to the ARB_compressed_texture_pixel_storage extension.

    This extension expands the functionality of the PixelStorei modes to allow UNPACK_ROW_LENGTH, UNPACK_SKIP_ROWS, UNPACK_SKIP_PIXELS, UNPACK_IMAGE_HEIGHT and UNPACK_SKIP_IMAGES to affect the operation of CompressedTexImage*D and CompressedTexSubImage*D. Similarly, it also allows PACK_ROW_LENGTH, PACK_SKIP_ROWS, PACK_SKIP_PIXELS, PACK_IMAGE_HEIGHT and PACK_SKIP_IMAGES to affect the operation of GetCompressedTexImage*D. This allows data to be transferred to or from a specified sub-rectangle of a larger compressed image.

    This extension is designed primarily to support compressed image formats with fixed-size blocks. To use this new mechanism, an application should program new parameters UNPACK_COMPRESSED_BLOCK_{WIDTH,HEIGHT,DEPTH,SIZE} to indicate the number of texels in each dimension of the fixed-size block as well as the number of bytes consumed by each block. These parameters, in addition to the existing PixelStore parameters, are used to identify a collection of bytes in client memory or a buffer object's data store to use as compressed texture data. This operation is unlikely to have the desired results if the client programs a block size inconsistent with the underlying compressed image format, or if the compressed image format has variable-sized blocks.

    Requires OpenGL 2.1. Promoted to core in OpenGL 4.2.
