Creates a texture directly from raw data, width and height.


DataTexture(data : TypedArray, width : Integer, height : Integer, format : Constant, type : Constant, mapping : Constant, wrapS : Constant, wrapT : Constant, magFilter : Constant, minFilter : Constant, anisotropy : Integer, encoding : Constant)

The data argument must be a TypedArray. Further parameters correspond to the properties inherited from Texture, where both magFilter and minFilter default to v3d.NearestFilter.

The interpretation of the data depends on type and format: If the type is v3d.UnsignedByteType, a Uint8Array will be useful for addressing the texel data. If the format is v3d.RGBAFormat, data needs four values for one texel; Red, Green, Blue and Alpha (typically the opacity).
For the packed types, v3d.UnsignedShort4444Type and v3d.UnsignedShort5551Type all color components of one texel can be addressed as bitfields within an integer element of a Uint16Array.
In order to use the types v3d.FloatType and v3d.HalfFloatType, the WebGL implementation must support the respective extensions OES_texture_float and OES_texture_half_float. In order to use v3d.LinearFilter for component-wise, bilinear interpolation of the texels based on these types, the WebGL extensions OES_texture_float_linear or OES_texture_half_float_linear must also be present.

Code Example

// create a buffer with color data const width = 512; const height = 512; const size = width * height; const data = new Uint8Array(4 * size); const color = new v3d.Color(0xffffff); const r = Math.floor(color.r * 255); const g = Math.floor(color.g * 255); const b = Math.floor(color.b * 255); for (let i = 0; i < size; i++) { const stride = i * 4; data[stride] = r; data[stride + 1] = g; data[stride + 2] = b; data[stride + 3] = 255; } // used the buffer to create a DataTexture const texture = new v3d.DataTexture(data, width, height); texture.needsUpdate = true;


See the base Texture class for common properties.

.flipY : Boolean

If set to true, the texture is flipped along the vertical axis when uploaded to the GPU. Default is false.

.generateMipmaps : Boolean

Whether to generate mipmaps (if possible) for a texture. False by default.

.image : Image

Overridden with a record type holding data, width and height.

.isDataTexture : Boolean

Read-only flag to check if a given object is of type DataTexture.

.unpackAlignment : Integer

1 by default. Specifies the alignment requirements for the start of each pixel row in memory. The allowable values are 1 (byte-alignment), 2 (rows aligned to even-numbered bytes), 4 (word-alignment), and 8 (rows start on double-word boundaries). See glPixelStorei for more information.
