width and height of a texture

Recommended Posts

Let''s say this is the texture...

PDIRECT3DTEXTURE8 pTex = NULL; /// initialized elsewhere
D3DSURFACE_DESC texDesc;

pTex->GetLevelDesc(
0, /// choose this because it''s the top level you want w & h
&texDesc);

int width = texDesc.Width;
int height = texDesc.Height;


Pitch is like the real width of the texture if you are locking it. But it''s like a width you don''t see kind of. If you are not locking the texture don''t worry about it. Otherwise write back on here.

Because your video card requires that textures have sizes that are powers of 2. You probably used a D3DX function or something similar to load the texture, which automatically handles sizing for you.
