I have a question regarding preserving mipmaps in DDS files when converting them to VTF format. I know VTFedit and the VTFedit plugin for photoshop can easily convert a DDS file to VTF, however it seems to re-create the mipmaps during the conversion. Now if I put the option to create no mipmap, it just trashes the mipmap data entirely. Now someone pointed me to a program that converts DDS files to VTF that DOES preserve the mipmap data, however unlike VTFedit it does not allow for many options or more importantly the ability to put a bunch together in an animated texture.
Is there any other program or an option im missing in VTFedit that will do the DDS to VTF conversion without trashing/rebuilding the mipmap data?
