[Arnold] Do the right thing: use tx


Use tx textures. Don’t use png, jpg, tif, psd, or any other format. Convert them to tx.

Why not use those other formats?

  • Slow to load
  • Memory hungry if not tiled and mipmapped
  • Slow to render if textures exceed the texture cache size

Why use tx?

  • Fast to load
  • Efficient memory usage
  • Faster to render because they make better use of the texture cache
  • Optimizations such as the detection of constant colors and duplicate files
