Hi all,

I tried to render out the RGB and Alpha images into one Targa image sequence
but Lightwave has created separate files for the RGB and Alpha channels..........

How can i add the Alpha sequence into the RGB Targa files
(It can be done in Photoshop manually but that would but a lot of work since i have rendered a sequence of 800 frames).

And is it possible to have Lightwave store the Alpha channel into the RGB file instead of two separate files ?

greetz,

If you have rendered out your frames as a targa, then your alpha is embedded in the pic... You dont have to check save alpha button as this just saves just the alpha part of the image.So now you have the alpha embedded in your image and a separate alpha image also.
everything is working right... load your image in Photoshop and just check the channels tab and you will see your (Alpha 1) alpha channel in there.
