  • Publication number: 20220092740
    Abstract: Machine learning is used to generate a first mipmap of a texture having a first compression based on a second mipmap of the same texture and having a second compression without using compression or decompression in generating the first mipmap. The first mipmap can then be used to render a computer graphics object. Training can be done using as input decompressed blocks from originally compressed blocks.

  • Publication number: 20210312592
    Abstract: A method for super-resolution of block-compressed texture is provided. The method includes receiving a first texture block of a first block size. Based on application of a first block compression (BC) scheme on the received first texture block, coded-texture values are generated in a compressed domain. Further, a first machine learning model is applied on the generated coded-texture values to generate super-resolution coded-texture values in the compressed domain. The generated super-resolution coded-texture values are processed to generate a second texture block of a second block size. The second block size is greater than the first block size.
