Vue Texture Resizer

Thursday, November 27th, 2008

One perenial problem reported by Vue users is running short of memory. Part of the problem is that it is so easy to import objects that are loaded down with image based textures, bump maps, reflection maps etc. At the moment its a bit of a pain to hunt down all the textures, make copies and resize them based on how they are used in your scene. I was messing round with a Vue python script earlier to find all the image nodes in materials in a scene. This will form part of a new add on for Vue that I hope will be able to find all the images and then either let you move all of them to another directory to work on with your favourite graphics package or resize the copy without leaving Vue. Tomorrow I hope to have the time to put a wxPython wrapper around it to make it a bit frendlier than it is at the moment.
