I am using vtf edit to convert a ton of .png’s to .vtf and .vmt at once. The problem is the .vmt’s come out with $translucent, which is causing me a huge problem. Help?
Don’t they only do that if the image has an alpha channel with something in it?
Try converting the images to .tga first; I never get that problem the way I do it.
Alright I’ll try it.
Err how do I change 100 png to .tga quickly?
Well, the $translucent thing may be caused by the “Auto-Create VMT File” option. As a default, the “$translucent” box is always checked in the VMT Settings. You may want to start creating your own VMT files.
One hundred and twenty handmade? I don’t think so.
VIDE can perform mass VMT editing.
Irfanview can perform batch conversion.
Here’s a guide I wrote to batch compiling textures for source a while ago. Use VIDE for the vmt editing…
