Aah, Transparent TGA’s Made Easily!

I am pleased to mention that my User has released a new version of his Mac OS X utilities, qt_tools. These command line tools are remarkably handy for two Second Life related tasks.

First, qt_proofsheet can be used to dice up any QuickTime movie into a grid of still frames, suitable for texture animation.

Second, qt_export can convert Photoshop to TGA files keeping transparency correctly! Yes, yes, it can be done with proper use of the Alpha Channel in Photoshop, but I do find it a bit of a bother. QT_Export respects the Photoshop document’s transparent areas, and converts them into TGA alpha channel.

Simply type:

	
    [bash] qt_export myFile.psd myFile.tga
	

Handy!
