Allows the GIMP to read and write Valve Texture Format files on Windows. Download the latest release and source code at http://code.google.com/p/gimp-vtf/.
A relatively simple save options screen is used; to access VTF's more esoteric features make your textures with VTFEdit.
There are two GIMP-specific features. You can:
- Specify a layer to use as the VTF's alpha channel. This bypasses most problems with GIMP's readiness to destroy the RGB data of fully-transparent pixels.
- Export each layer group to a different VTF file. Store all your textures in one XCF!
This program uses VTFLib, by Nem and Wunderboy.
