Disney's Ptex released as free open source
« on: January 21, 2010, 05:24:05 PM »
Ptex is a texture mapping system developed by Walt Disney Animation Studios for production-quality rendering:

    * No UV assignment is required! Ptex applies a separate texture to each face of a subdivision or polygon mesh.
    * The Ptex file format can efficiently store hundreds of thousands of texture images in a single file.
    * The Ptex API provides cached file I/O and high-quality filtering - everything that is needed to easily add Ptex support to a production-quality renderer or texture authoring application.
