What kind of Texture format is INTENSITY? I know that luminance is grayscale, but what''s intensity? Is it like, a combination of luminance and alpha?

Thanks, that's what I thought. Can anyone give an example of when you'd want to use it?

Also, according to this Table There are 4, 8, 12 & 16 bit versions of INTENSITY

many uses for greyscale images, the biggest advantage is the memory requirements are far less than using a RGB or RGBA image of the same quality
