View Full Version : Layout Crashing when saving PNG 32 format

Anyone else had this problem or know where to point in the quick fix direction? It seems fine when save 24bit PICT files but crashes everytime with 32. I've trashed my prefes and rescanned my plugin directory but still no joy.

I contact tech support but I guess everyones on holidays. I really need to get this fixed so that I can composit a matte bgd.

what about a work-around in the meantime? different file format or separate alpha?

Thanks, I did some tests and found I can use Tiff and TGA formats, in the past I've always used PNG.

Also I tried to add the Input-Output PNG.p for OSX from the original LW7 CD but got a 'Cannot Load External Plugin' message. I was able to load other Input-Output plugs and the problem seems to be limited to just 32bit PNG.

I wonder if other Mac 7.5c users are able to save out 32bit PNGs?? Can someone test for me.

works ok here, saved through the image editor on F9 and also used F10
