ATI_Compress has reached end of life. AMD no longer supports ATI_Compress, but makes it available for download without warranty. For current tools and SDKs, please visit our Tools & SDKs page.
ATI_Compress is AMD’s library for texture compression. It is used by The Compressonator in its ATI 3Dc compression plug-in. It is also available to third party developers who wish to incorporate it within their own applications. It can compress to a wide range of compression formats including ATI2N, DXT & swizzled DXT formats. It also supports conversion of textures between 8bit fixed, 16bit fixed & 32bit float formats.
