Hello

I’m looking for a program or plugin of some kind that can take many textures and turn them into one big/main texture file.

I have found some programs that can do that like das studio has has a plugin called “texture atlas” or something like that can turn a whole bunch of texture and turn it into 1 main texture. And I haven’t used 3D-Coat and 3D-Brush so I might have already have been eye balling my answer :)

So I’m asking if there are any other programs or plugins out there that I haven’t explored yet. (when I say plugins I mean like for programs like milkshape 3d, Blender, Gmax etc.)

this is a standard feature for most 3d painting programs. you should venture outside of daz studio. thats more of a modify than creation tool

I was only using daz studio as an example I don’t use that program for general 3d modeling. I have a couple of 3d programs like Wings3d, Milkshape 3D, Gmax etc. I’ve used them and still haven’t found out how to do that yet with models that require multiple textures.

Blender has a bake to texture feature which combines all the textures into one, but not by stitching them together at the edges or something. It takes them all and maps them onto one bitmap texture.

Thanks I’ll be sure to check this out let me know if there are more tools like that just in case one works better than the other. Really thank you.

You can use Photoshop to do that.

Be careful with mip mapping when doing that.
