I'm sure this is a dumb question for all you 3D guru's out there, but what is the Mip Mapping option in the new 8.01 texture editor? What will it do for me. Are there any updated doc's for 8.01?

Thanks

I'd say it has just been renamed from "Texture Antialiasing", because it really always was mipmapping :D
But the quality setting...wasn't that just an enable/disable option before?

You're right, that is new, almost counts as a new feature (well, the quality setting atleast). It's not documented so I wonder what impact it has...

Makes you wonder if more stuff like this will come into line with other apps, like renaming "Triple" to "triangulate" etc...
