Quality rape with VTFEdit (skinning)

Hi everyone, I have a skinning problem (again).

I decided to do a reskin for the sacks of the scream fortress event.

Here’s three of them, everything is ok :

But when I open the TGA file on VTFEdit, the quality is totaly ruined :

Can anyone tell me what’s the problem and how to fix it ?

Thanks.

VTF’s are a lossy format. That’s what happened. It’s like working with jpegs.

Use RGB888 and RGBA8888 for the alpha.

Allright it’s working. Thank you :>

No problem.

Mind that those lossless formats have a much bigger filesize tho.
