be nice not to have to deal with UV's... especially since it's almost impossible to re-do uv maps on any super high res geometry...

I just thought I would bump this with a gigantic +1

I'm so over faffing about with gigantic unusable UV maps. That is a general complaint not specific to PhotoScan :-)

Yep (http://ptex.us/tritex.html), although not all applications implement the full ptex spec.

Mari is one painting app that I know for sure supports ptex triangles.

Here is an answer to the question of using Ptex on dense triangle meshes, straight from the mouse's mouth as it where.
