Loading a texture directly from image?

Recommended Posts

The most prominent method for loading textures seems to be the .fromImage functions, which use URLs. What if I have a raw image source, but no URL (like an image generated inside the app). How would I go about making a texture out of that?

The Texture class is created from a BaseTexture which is created from a texture source (such as an image or canvas). When you do "PIXI.Texture.fromImage('my/url/image.png');" basically what happens is this:

var img = new Image();img.src = 'my/url/image.png';var base = new PIXI.BaseTexture(img),    texture = new PIXI.Texture(base);// return you the texture

If you already have the image, you can just create a base texture from it and thereby a texture that you can use in your sprites. Hope this helps.
