Coming to the point of this post, I'm in the rather unfortunate position of requiring that my TGA sequences in After Effects 6.5 be rendered in the format as specified by Photoshop version 7 (and ONLY version 7.) In that particular format, there was no separate alpha channel stored, rather the transparency was an inherent part of the file. I currently use Photoshop CS2 and have no access to PS7 without being forced to purchase it.
I'm basically looking for either a way to do it directly from After Effects or for some way to convert the After Effects 6.5 TGA output to the technically correct TGA specification.
Any help/advice/hacks/anything would be much appreciated. Thanks!
