We want to generate tx's from the command line, but they have to match the ones that are auto-generated from maya. What attributes dictate what maketx command is run, and what other attributes are set by default. Thanks

Get oiiotool and run it on a tx. That will show you the command used.

    Software: "OpenImageIO-Arnold 1.7.17: maketx D:\Assets\textures\noicon.jpg --threads 4 --monochrome-detect --opaque-detect --constant-color-detect --fixnan box3 --oiio -u --unpremult --oiio --format exr -d half --compression dwaa -o D:\Assets\textures\noicon.tx"

HtoA ships with oiiotool, so you could just download any version of HtoA.

Thanks, I'm guessing it's the stuff in the brackets?

this would be the command line:

maketx D:\Assets\textures\noicon.jpg --threads 4 --monochrome-detect --opaque-detect --constant-color-detect --fixnan box3 --oiio -u --unpremult --oiio --format exr -d half --compression dwaa -o D:\Assets\textures\noicon.tx"
