Griva Posted April 25, 2018 Share Posted April 25, 2018 I need to generate some textures on the fly, bassicaly when map is loaded I generate several dozens simple gradient textures. I found here: https://github.com/pixijs/pixi.js/issues/3806 (last comments) that this is possible to use just one helper canvas to do this but after reading some other sources I am a little confused how to handle destroy of this textures. At the moment I have some helperCanvas with 2D context to generate my textures and then I do: // This create texture from helper canvas as I understand var texture1 = new PIXI.Texture(new PIXI.BaseTexture(helperCanvas)); // This one "save" texture in GPU memory if I understood correctly. renderer.textureManager.updateTexture(texture1.baseTexture); // Create new sprite from this texture var sprite = new Sprite( texture1 ); I do this in loop to create all needed sprites but I am not sure what should I do when map is unloaded, when I don't need these textures. Is any action needed or GC can handle this? Should I remove them manually from textureManager by some method or call destroy on sprite? ivan.popelyshev 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
