Description : image processing and texture manipulation tools
NVIDIA Texture Tools is a collection of image processing and texture
manipulation tools, designed to be integrated in game tools and asset
conditioning pipelines. The primary features of the library are mipmap and
normal map generation, format conversion and DXT compression.
The sourcecode contains algorithms protected by US patent 5,956,431 aka S3TC.
Though from what I've read on debian-legal this should be okay as the patent
is not actively enforced.
