Texture compression is a specialized form of still image compression employed in computer graphics systems to reduce memory bandwidth consumption. Modern texture compression schemes cannot generate satisfactory qualities for both alpha channel and color channel of texture images. We propose a novel texture compression scheme, named ImTC, based on the insight into the essential difference between transparency and color. ImTC defines new data formats and compresses the two channels flexibly… CONTINUE READING
