Hi, I'm trying to open a maya file which contains numerous .dds textures in it. I dont have any plugins it seems because the file opens without any textures (and may requestors stating it cant open the .dds files). Is there a plugin out there that I can use to import the .dds textures? Thanks.

On a side note, I'd be interested if someone knows of a tool (other than photoshop) that will batch convert dds to png/tga. Thanks

For Mac users, GraphicConverter 10 (or any older version most likely, at least back to version 6 or 7) will handle batch dds conversions.

Thanks this worked. Just copy the "PB_DDS.p" file into the "C:\Program Files\NewTek\LightWave_2015.3\support\plugins\util ity" folder.
