I was playing around with a texture loader yesterday and started wondering about which is "better" devil or java's imageio facility?
I'm mostly interested in speed, unless there's other factors I should know about.
Although I think there was some texture quality problems when using devil. I'm not sure, so I'll check that tonight.

Thanks in advance.



Devil is way faster.

Well, there is no magic involved. Devil just doesnt need to do that much with the data, whereas imageio needs a lot of data transformations and copy actions before you can upload the texture.

Its really a huge speed difference.


Ok thanks! Need to dump my imageio code then. =)
