Basis is an extremely useful texture format which produce small file and boost the rendering performance, three.js also provide a basis loader, but we found there isn’t a graphical interface for texture generating, this raises the bar for using the basis format. It can also cause a lot of trouble when generating a lot of textures: you have to write a bash script, it’s not easy for all the developers.
So we made a converter based on WebGL version of basisu, which provide:
- Texture preview: you can compare the generated texture and original one side by side;
- Batch convert: convert a lot of textures at once.
You can try it online: Basis Converter
Hope this would help!
