View Full Version : Dark *.TGA's? Why?

04-23-2006, 05:11 PM
When i render my scene which contains both BMP's and TGA's, the TGA's appear much darker than the Bitmaps. Why is this? I'm rendering using MR with FI and GI. I've looked at the textures and they seem fine, it must be some setting somewhere. I really need to sort this out as it really killing my renders.

Please help.

Ok, it is definately something to do with final gather. I've tried maya sofeware and it's fine, MR without FG is fine - turn it on and the tga's render much darker. So what's that all about?

Ok, i'll take the hint. No body has a clue how to solve this. Great.

Looks like I'm F'd in the A then...

Use tifs, or sgis, or something else? Why do you need targas?

I would guess it's something in your irradiance settings that's making them go all wacky, but I dunno.
