Resize texture with PVRTextool

pvrtextool

#1

Hello everybody,

When I use PVRTextool to resize my texture with parameter -x[currentWidth/2] -y[currentHeight/2] and the texture after exported will have Meta Data = 24bytes. How can I keep Meta Data = 0.

And could you please help me explain the purpose of Meta Data?

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

The meta data is used to describe the contents of the PVR file, for example the format of the data and how many mip levels there are. For more information, I’d recommend reading our “PVR File Format Specification” document. The document is included in our SDK package. It’s also available online here.
