Hi, a client gave me a bunch of 32bit RGB displacement maps, which render/displace a given model fine in mr. However, I would like to use RfM2 for rendering. Now, when I convert the maps back ti say tif or iff, the model blows up like a balloon. Surely, this has to do with the conversion. I`m rather new to this displacement topic and searching with a few keywords leeds to tons of sites with for me irrelevant stuff. Has anybody a clue what I could do to get the maps converted nicely or tell me which displacement map format RfM 3 likes the most?
Thanks in advance

Sounds like a Alpha Gain/Alpha Offset thing.

Digital-Tutors has some free RfM videos (http://www.digitaltutors.com/digital_tutors/tutorials.php?cat=renderman). Maybe you'll find what you need there.
