Quality Plus Performance
The Mali Texture Compression Tool enables developers to compress textures in order to reduce bandwidth used in the system. This reduces power consumption and increases performance of applications.
Features and Benefits
Select low dynamic range (LDR) and high dynamic range (HDR) texture compression into ASTC, including 3D texture compression, all with automatic mipmap generation. Select ASTC compression speed — exhaustive, thorough, medium, fast, or very fast encoding — based on the desired time vs. quality tradeoff.
Compress up to 600x faster than ETCPack at same or better quality optimized for lowest root mean square error or lowest perceptual error. ETC2 supports multiple formats and bitmaps including alpha channel and punch through alpha. Mipmaps (either multiple PKM files or one KTX file) are auto-generated.
All common texture formats are supported (bmp, jpeg, jpg, tga, bpm, pgm, png, ppm, psd, tiff, raw, xbm, and many other ImageMagick supported formats). Alpha channels are handled as texture atlases or as separate compressed/uncompressed alpha channel textures. Windows, Linux, and MacOS are supported.
Work in a GUI for easy compression configuration or in a command line interface for easy integration with build systems and testing regression suites. Visually compare compressed textures with originals, with quality reported in both RMSE (root-mean-square error) and PSNR (peak signal-noise ratio).
