PVRTC

Pico Pixel now supports PVR files and PVRTC compressed textures. PVRTC compression is known in OpenGL ES as:

  • GL_COMPRESSED_RGB_PVRTC_4BPPV1_IMG
  • GL_COMPRESSED_RGB_PVRTC_2BPPV1_IMG
  • GL_COMPRESSED_RGBA_PVRTC_4BPPV1_IMG
  • GL_COMPRESSED_RGBA_PVRTC_2BPPV1_IMG

PVR files may embed even more compressed texture formats. Initially, Pico Pixel will support a subset of those formats with more to be added in the future.

Support for PVRTC will debut in Pico Pixel 0.6.5.
