C4D R18 now support DDS image import.

The Direct Draw Surface (DDS) image format is frequently used in game development, and with Cinema 4D Release 18 and greater you can now directly load DDS images into Cinema 4D for use as textures.

In this tutorial we'll use the DDS image import to load textures from Video Copilot's free Star Wars Model Pack.
