Here are 3 simple steps to create an BLEND file from a DDS file.
Click the "Upload a File" button and select a DDS to upload. The maximum file size is 100MB.
Set the dimensions and other options and click the "Convert to BLEND" button to convert your DDS to BLEND.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your DDS file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the DDS to BLEND conversion has completed, you can download your BLEND file straight away.
We aim to process all DDS to BLEND conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.
We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features and improvements being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the DDS file you submit to us. The resulting BLEND file, once created is deleted 15 minutes after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our DDS to BLEND tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.
Yes. Although you can use an Ad Blocker, if you like our DDS conversion tool please consider white-listing our site. When an Ad Blocker is enabled there are some conversion limits on some of our tools and processing/conversion times will be longer.
The DDS image you upload can be any size, however our tool will resize it to a maximum of 600x600 pixels for normal users and for premium subscription holders this is increased to a maximum of 1000x1000 pixels.
Our tool will save all Blender files that can be opened with version 4.0 of Blender.
The DDS file format was introduced my Microsoft in 1999 intended to be its standard image format for the DirectX 7 3D graphics Api. The format is used to store textures for use within 3D graphics and game environments and can be compressed or uncompressed.
The compression algorithm used by DDS was the previously proprietary S3 Texture Compression which could reduce the image file size down and was easy for the GPU to decompress in real-time. The format is still used and there are some 3rd party image editors that are compatible with the format.
The BLEND file type is the native 3D graphics file format of the 3D modelling application Blender. Originally released in 1994 Blender has grown over the years and is one of the most popular 3D applications available.
BLEND files store 3D content such as 3D geometry, vertices, faces, normals, animations, materials and much more. Blender is free and open-source and contains many features you would expect in a high-end 3D editing application and is available for most current operating systems.
If your original model file contains texture images and other texture related data, these will be included in final BLEND file.
