[osg-users] How to convert osg::Texture to osg::Image?

Hi Michael,

A Texture attached to an osg::Camera for RTT will not have an
osg::Image assigned to it, it's assigned to a frame buffer object

What you need to do is attach a final draw callback on the RTT Camera
that does a osg::Image::readPixels(..) or
osg::Image::readImageFromCurrentTexture(..).  You could leave this
callback attached all the time and just have a flag in it that toggles
on/off whether the read to image needs to be done or not.
