Z.ImageTexture

Inherits from Z.Texture

Description

The Z.ImageTexture object represents an image file loaded for use as a texture on an object.

The following formats are supported:

  • PNG
  • JPEG

Both dimensions of the image file must be an even power-of-two number of pixels in size, for example 512px x 256px. ZapWorks Studio automatically resizes images that are dragged into the Media Library in order to meet this criteria.

The following recommendations are made to minimize download times and CPU usage:

  • Prefer JPEG for images that don't require transparency
  • Don't use textures above 1024px by 1024px in size
  • Use an image compacting utility, such as ImageOptim

Most functions that accept Z.ImageTexture arguments can also accept filenames directly and will automatically create a Z.ImageTexture object. Use Z.ImageTexture directly when it is necessary to control texture parameters (e.g. position, or wrap).

Example

var mytexture = Z.ImageTexture("snakes.png");
mytexture.scale([0.5, 0.5]);
mytexture.wrap(Z.Texture.Wrap.clamp);

var myplane = Z.Object("plane.aro");
myplane.skin(mytexture);
