Per messages with Dedmen in the official Arma discord:

[ 5:57 PM ] supergauntlet: @Dedmen (ง •̀_•́)ง dunno if this is the right place to ask, but.. kind of an out there request, how hard do you think a command to get texture data given a texture path would be to implement?
[ 5:57 PM ] Dedmen (ง •̀_•́)ง: didnt we recently get one for size?
[ 5:58 PM ] supergauntlet: by this I also mean, if I do this with intercept what are the odds that I can get you or another dev to put it in the game
[ 5:58 PM ] Dedmen (ง •̀_•́)ง: here KK added this
[ 5:58 PM ] supergauntlet: how hard would it be to have that also return texture data
[ 5:58 PM ] Dedmen (ง •̀_•́)ง: what is texture data
[ 5:59 PM ] supergauntlet: as in, an array of arrays of size x,y where each point has the rgba values of that pixel
[ 5:59 PM ] Dedmen (ง •̀_•́)ง: usecase?
[ 5:59 PM ] Dedmen (ง •̀_•́)ง: I don't think I like that
[ 6:00 PM ] Dedmen (ง •̀_•́)ง: translating that stuff into script values will be hella expensive
[ 6:00 PM ] supergauntlet: I'm floating my idea again of dynamically figuring out camo values
[ 6:00 PM ] Dedmen (ง •̀_•́)ง: I could give you average color
[ 6:00 PM ] supergauntlet: since cf bai is dead
[ 6:00 PM ] Dedmen (ง •̀_•́)ง: that is stored directly in the paa
[ 6:00 PM ] supergauntlet: is it? avg color is probably good enough

getTextureInfo returns texture size, per

This report is requesting an update to getTextureInfo to also return the average color of the texture, in RGBA format.

Thank you for requesting the feature.
Due to the current phase of Live Ops development in Arma 3, we cannot commit to any new features, though we will try to consider them.
