Allthough LWJPG is selected as the Render Options RGB Output File Type, when I render and save the file it is not JPG but rather Bitmap...WHY? Anyone have the answer! - jim

Are you rendering with F9 or F10?

When you set the output file format in Render Options it works with F10 renders. If you save from the image viewer after an F9, you have to choose the format each time.

Rendering with F10. It's been working fine up to now...suddenly I can't render and save a jpeg image.

doh. You could try clearing out the i/o plug-ins and reload them.

Thank you Toby...now in layman terms what are you trying to tell me? - jim

Alt-F11 will bring up the edit plug-ins panel. Expand the Image i/o (input/output) plug-ins, find jpeg and jpegloader and delete them. This only deletes them from the Lightwave list. Hit 'add plug-ins' and navigate to plugins/input-output/jpeg.p.

This might not do it, but it's worth a try. It's a good thing to know how to do, sometimes the plugins get corrupted.

Thanks Toby...

It didn't work, however it is a great tut that you provided. You gave me some great info that I can use in the future. I'm sure others reading your thread will find it most useful also. Again, thank you!!!! = jim
