When my students do a test render (F9) their scene looks fine, but when they render to targa_24 it is very dark. Am I missing something? I would hate to just boost ambient linght, but nothing else seems to brighten scene. - Sugestions?

its just a guess but...

colorsync.
F9 renders to a window inside LW, bypassing colorsync altogether.

F10 renders to a file (and the typical use is to Not show it during the render) and whatever app you use to view the animation could be adding colorsync color correction to it.

The targas are viewed in Photoshop. How do I correct it?

Go to View:Proof Setup and select either Windows RGB or Monitor RGB

To permanently adjust Photoshop's color settings so that it's geared up for video instead of print, go to the Color Settings preferences pane (cmd + shift + K)
