Class IMGTextureCompressionPVRTC

  • public final class IMGTextureCompressionPVRTC
    extends java.lang.Object
    Native bindings to the IMG_texture_compression_pvrtc extension.

    This extension provides additional texture compression functionality specific to Imagination Technologies PowerVR Texture compression format (called PVRTC) subject to all the requirements and limitations described by the OpenGL 1.3 specifications.

    This extension supports 4 and 2 bit per pixel texture compression formats. Because the compression of PVRTC is very CPU intensive, it is not appropriate to carry out compression on the target platform. Therefore this extension only supports the loading of compressed texture data.
