Oodle Data Compression
The Oodle SDK provides simple stand-alone lossless data compressors for you to integrate in your pipeline. Oodle's unique compression algorithms are super fast to decode, with a range of compression ratios to suit a variety of applications.
New in Oodle - Leviathan! Leviathan is the big brother to the revolutionary Oodle Kraken. Leviathan gets higher compression ratios, while only decoding a little more slowly than Kraken.
The right compressor for you
Oodle offers a range of compressors that run the gamut from high compression to super fast, so you can choose the one that's best for your game. When one Oodle compressor doesn't fit the bill, another one will. Oodle's compressors are also uniquely tuneable to trade off compressed size vs decode speed to hit the perfect balance for your application.
- Oodle Leviathan gets the highest compression ratios, comparable to 7z/LZMA, but decodes 10× faster.
- Oodle Kraken offers high compression with super-fast decoding - 3-5× faster than zlib, with way more compression.
- Oodle Mermaid offers mid-level compression (better than zlib) with insanely fast decoding - 5-10× faster than zlib. Loading data compressed with Mermaid is even faster than loading uncompressed data from disk!
- Oodle Selkie offers lower compression ratios but the fastest decodes, faster than LZ4 but with better compression. Eliminate decode time!
Oodle decompression is incredibly fast
Oodle runs great on every platformOodle uses the same data format on every platform, so your pipeline doesn't need to change, but the decompressors are custom designed to make use of SIMD and other special features of the platform. Unlike standard compressors, the Oodle compression algorithms were designed from scratch to work with the quirks of current game platforms.
Oodle is so fast that running the compressors and saving or loading compressed data is faster than just doing IO of uncompressed data. Oodle can decompress faster than the hardware decompression on PS4 and XBox One.
