Not a Problem yet, but could be?

by christoferlevich » Wed Jul 12, 2017 09:20

I am trying to figure out where to post this, but I am not sure. What I want to know is whether or not I can safely mix resolutions with textures.

For instance, I made some nodes that use a one pixel texture (its a solid, flat color node series for a custom build)... yet other places in the project I am working on NEEDS readable clock faces (down to the very minute). Even at 64x64 its pixelated. Naturally, 128x128 looks much sharper but I am worried about what I might be doing to the program engine. Is it ok to mix texture resolutions or am I simply asking for huge issues down the road of development?

Since each node has its individual texture file(s), it is possible to mix resolutions just fine. Non-power-of-two resolutions may be an issue on very old hardware, but any dedicated graphics card since 2007 should provide support for them.

Thanks! I haven't got a clue how the graphics work, but I know that mixed res. has worked ok with lenovo Yoga units, dells, and even some imacs running win 7... up to 25 users a session, but I do worry about expansion and server performance.
