What is PVR?#
PVR is a texture container format used to store textures for graphical applications.
PVR files are divided into three main elements:
A header element with 52 bytes in length.
Zero or more metadata elements with length determined by the header.
A texture data element with length determined by the header.
The broad layout of a PVR file is shown below.
The following sections will detail the structure of each of these elements.
