🔸 Description Truevision TGA often referred to as TARGA, is a raster graphics file format created by Truevision Inc. The native format of TARGA and VISTA boards was the first graphic cards for IBM-compatible PCs to support the Highcolor/TrueColor display. The DirectDraw Surface container file format (uses the filename extension DDS) is a Microsoft format for storing data compressed with the proprietary S3 Texture Compression (S3TC) algorithm, which can be decompressed in hardware by GPUs.
🔸 Technical details The format can store image data with a maximum of 24 bits of RGB and an extra 8-bit alpha channel. Color data can be color-mapped or indirect color, or truecolor format. Image data may be stored raw, or optionally, a lossless RLE compression similar to PackBits can be employed. The DirectDraw Surface format is useful for storing graphical textures and cubic environment maps as compressed and uncompressed data files. The Microsoft Windows file extension for this data format is '.dds'.
