PNG versus SGI
I have a new version of AC3D, which means I can now start using PNG textures, which compress to a smaller size than the SGI textures do. One thing that seems a bit disconcerting is that it takes forever for GIMP to compress the images, which leads one to wonder is the de-compression just as slow? Has anyone noticed a significant difference in load-time for models using PNG textures?
