What is VTF file?


The Valve Texture File (.VTF) is a file extension created by Valve Corporation. It is a compressed lossless texture file, usually in the form of a .DDS image, for use in video games produced by Valve Corporation. The VTF file extension is an image format used in the Valve software. The .VTF file extension is used to store textures that are specifically designed for use with Valve's Source engine games, similar to other texture formats such as TGA and DDS. The VTF files are digitally signed and encrypted to prevent unauthorized tampering with textures. The VTF files can be either compressed or uncompressed when they are used inside the source engine games.
