Hello everyone, I’m having an issue with batch converting a jpg image sequence to tx format for rendering with Arnold.
When I use the maketx command, it doesn’t apply the proper gamma correction and I get double-gamma corrected renders. Way too bright.
If I let Maya auto-convert to TX it works great. However, it only converts the current frame. No good for an image sequence.
I’ve tried every command line switch (–colorconvert, -d, --colorengine) I can find for the maketx command, but nothing seems to work.
My other option is to just add a gamma correction node to the image sequence file node, but I’d prefer to maintain a proper linear Arnold workflow.
EDIT: I should also note that changing the color space in the file node makes no difference
