Class: Texture

PIXI.Texture

A texture stores the information that represents an image or part of an image. It cannot be added to the display list directly. Instead use it as the texture for a Sprite. If no frame is provided then the whole image is used.

You can directly create a texture from an image and then reuse it multiple times like this :

let texture = PIXI.Texture.fromImage('assets/image.png');
let sprite1 = new PIXI.Sprite(texture);
let sprite2 = new PIXI.Sprite(texture);

Textures made from SVGs, loaded or not, cannot be used before the file finishes processing. You can check for this by checking the sprite's _textureID property.

var texture = PIXI.Texture.fromImage('assets/image.svg');
var sprite1 = new PIXI.Sprite(texture);
//sprite1._textureID should not be undefined if the texture has finished processing the SVG file

You can use a ticker or rAF to ensure your sprites load the finished textures after processing. See issue #3068.

new PIXI.Texture (baseTexture, frame, orig, trim, rotate, anchor)

Name Type Description
baseTexture PIXI.BaseTexture

The base texture source to create the texture from

frame PIXI.Rectangle optional

The rectangle frame of the texture to show

orig PIXI.Rectangle optional

The area of original texture

trim PIXI.Rectangle optional

Trimmed rectangle of original texture

rotate number optional

indicates how the texture was rotated by texture packer. See PIXI.GroupD8

anchor PIXI.Point optional

Default anchor point used for sprite placement / rotation

Extends

  • EventEmitter

Members

PIXI.Texture.EMPTY staticconstant

An empty texture, used often to not have to create multiple empty textures. Can not be destroyed.

PIXI.Texture.WHITE staticconstant

A white texture of 10x10 size, used for graphics and other things Can not be destroyed.

This is the area of the BaseTexture image to actually copy to the Canvas / WebGL when rendering, irrespective of the actual frame size or placement (which can be influenced by trimmed texture atlases)

baseTexture PIXI.BaseTexture

The base texture that this texture uses.

defaultAnchor PIXI.Point

Anchor point that is used as default if sprite is created with this texture. Changing the defaultAnchor at a later point of time will not update Sprite's anchor point.

Default Value:
  • {0,0}

The frame specifies the region of the base texture that this texture uses. Please call _updateUvs() after you change coordinates of frame manually.

height number

The height of the Texture in pixels.

noFrame boolean

Does this Texture have any frame data assigned to it?

This is the area of original texture, before it was put in atlas

requiresUpdate boolean

This will let a renderer know that a texture has been updated (used mainly for webGL uv updates)

rotate number

Indicates whether the texture is rotated inside the atlas set to 2 to compensate for texture packer rotation set to 6 to compensate for spine packer rotation can be used to rotate or mirror sprites See PIXI.GroupD8 for explanation

textureCacheIds Array.<string>

The ids under which this Texture has been added to the texture cache. This is automatically set as long as Texture.addToCache is used, but may not be set if a Texture is added directly to the TextureCache array.

transform PIXI.TextureMatrix

Contains data for uvs. May contain clamp settings and some matrices. Its a bit heavy, so by default that object is not created.

Default Value:
  • null

This is the trimmed area of original texture, before it was put in atlas Please call _updateUvs() after you change coordinates of trim manually.

valid boolean

This will let the renderer know if the texture is valid. If it's not then it cannot be rendered.

width number

The width of the Texture in pixels.
