I have DDS textures (DXT1, DXT3, DXT5) in a memory buffer. I want to convert these to QImages. The textures are in main memory not in the graphics card memory. I have searched Qt's documentation extensively and believe this can't be done with one simple function. It can be done by writing the buffer to a temporary file, and then loading from that, but that is very undesirable in my application. My application has an OpenGL context that can be used, but I don't know how to proceed.

What I have tried:

The most promising result of my research has been to use a QOpenGLFrameBufferObject. This has a .toImage() member function. However, my OpenGL knowledge is not sufficient to draw the texture to the frame buffer object.
