when you rendered an IFF, did you set the framebuffer attributes in the mental ray tab to a 16 bit option?

I was having problems with this some time ago with Maya 7.0.
In older versions it worked fine. It turned out I had to (in
addition to modifying the framebuffer settings) use
uncompressed tiff format, since any other format somehow didn't

tiffuncompressed16 bitsRGBA short seems to be the only format working (incredible that iff sgi or rla dont work ) but there is a bug with it in combustion 4.......NO LUCK.phil.
