Converting can made some photo manipulation software or online tools or an NVIDIA converter.
So, I get that NVIDIA tool and make batch files to make the conversion process easy.
You can find it here: https://github.com/davidzoli/batch_dds2tga or download a zip from here: http://link.davidzoltan.hu/dds2tga1
Your job is only drop a file or folder onto the bat file and after some question, all the conversion will be made for you.
The file converter process one or more dropped files. There is a folder converter too which make a copy of the given folder (structure) and DDS files. After the copy it will convert the DDS file(s) and leave only the TGA (or the copied DDS too).
So you can convert whole folders to get TGA files before start a Blender Tools project.
Be careful with recursion!
I've converted the whole base! It took 40 minutes (of ~6400 files) and 4.6GB disk space (~8GB during conversion)
Code: Select all
convert_file.bat - Bat for convert file(s). Drop a file or set of files onto the bat. Converter will be called and make a TGA file beside of the original DDS. convert_folder.bat - File process a dropped folder. User can deside to do the process recursively or not. Not recursive run will convert the files only in the dropped folder. Recursive run will create the whole directory structure. Folder convert always create a folder (*_converted) beside of the original folder and copy the dds files in the original folders structure. User can decide whether keep the copied DDS files or not.
Or make a better solution for this kind of "problem". My desktop programming skills and freetime for this ends here.
There must be some serious programmer here Maybe Cadde?
