Texture using other texture data

Texture using other texture data

Post by Athanasios » Wed, 27 Jul 2005 00:21:51

Hi all,

Is it possible to create a texture using data from other already
existing textures in the GPU? I want to create a texture by
blending/mosaicking two or more textures that have already been in the GPU.

Not directly, no, but you can render into textures
and this lets you do what you want.

In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know
that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,'
and then they actually change their minds and you never
hear that old view from them again. They really do it.
It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists
are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens
every day. I cannot recall the last time something like
that happened in politics or religion.
