These are not extra pixels, these are pixels that are meant to be here. And people that base their work on it make wrong things.

I mean the extra lines which are present in the WadMarger preview, although in this case it's probably a case of texture bleed, where a neighbour texture affects the main texture when it's smoothed using certain kind of texture filtering. But my post was mainly about the blue line along both sides of Lara's nose in Chronicles, which looks really off and makes me wonder how that kind of glitch slipped into the final product...

Ah... well there isn't meant to be any transparent texture on her nose, I think this is just some kind of texture bleed issue...

It's not texture bleeding, if you turn off bilinear filtering the problem is still there. It's either a bug in TRC or someone's hand must have slipped when cutting textures in AnimEdit. It's of one pixel size so the second option seems most plausible.

Now Joey's problem is of a completely different nature. In case of Joey it seems TRViewer reads textures in a wrong way, resulting it cropped edges of every texture. Because of that Lara's model feels unfinished/halfbaked while infact it is only because of TRViewer's faulty rendering.



In this picture there is a comparison of how texture should be rendered and how they are rendered. WADMerger shows textures more correctly, which is especially visible on Lara's face. TRViewer crops textures and because of that her face looks wrong. The difference is quite obvious if you compare lip textures.

Lara's nostril texture is a triangular portion of a square texture. Whoever was making the texture decided to fill the unused triangle with blue. However the engine (when any kind of filtering is on) blurs every pixel of a texture with it's neighbouring ones. So a tiny part of the unused blue section of the texture bleeds through into the main part.

You can fix it by opening up the level files and filling in that part of the texture with skin tone.

Apparently that's not the case since the blue strip is there even with filtering off, as per Ceasum's explanation, which wouldn't happen if this was due to texture bleeding. So it must be a case of an extra strip of pixels finding their way onto the texture.

The TRC Nose Texture is smaller than the TRIV one.
The Texture has two triangles: The actual nose texture and a blue-greenish part that shouldn't be visible. Since the texture is smaller in TRC, it is visible.
