Instance Property

isCube

A Boolean value that indicates whether the texture is a cube textures.

Declaration

var isCube: Bool { get set }

Discussion

Cube textures are used in skybox rendering, light probes, and environment maps. If this property’s value is true, the texture object represents a cube texture. In this case, the texture’s image data (accessible with the methods in Accessing Texture Data) contains six square images arranged vertically. The images represent the +X, -X, +Y, -Y, +Z, and -Z faces of the cube (in that order), and the dimensions property reflects this arrangement (height is six times width).
