Creating texture in D3D

Recommended Posts

I have created a texture using IDirect3DDevice9 CreateTexture method. Now I need to fill it with the image data. There is a lock rectangle method but it locks only a single level of the texture. Do I need to create and copy the image data to all the texture levels? or is there a way to copy only the topmost level and generate all the rest of the levels?

You can fill the first level with your image data and then call IDirect3dTexture9::GenerateMipSubLevels. That should do the trick.

Just in case you''re not aware of it, if your image data is coming from a file, in-memory file, or a resource, you can use D3DXCreateTextureFromFile, D3DXCreateTextureFromFileInMemory, or D3DXCreateTextureFromResource, respectively instead of loading it manually.
