Understand Texture Atlas

The Text layer Advanced text tool Read More has been designed for realtime. In order not to load the characters twice, each of them are saved in an Atlas. This atlas is updated when:
  • A new character is added
  • The size of the font changed
  • A font variation (Bold or italic) is requested, through the Text Generator A simple but very powerful text Read More options as well as through a Bold Force the text to be bold Read More or Italic Change to italic Read More
  • A new font is requested (example: with a Font Change the font Read More modifier
  • A new font or new character are requested with a Append Append text Read More or with a insert Insert text Read More .

You can visualize the texture atlas by going in renderer->Advanced parameters->Show Texture Atlas

The Texture Atlas is basically a canvas with it's own resolution that gonna be filled with new characters.
Depending of the number of characters and variations you wan't to display, the texture atls might be filled to capacity. An error will then occured:

Increase the resolution of the atlas solved this problem.
