View Full Version : Still Image crashes Modeler

I'm trying to do a simple flat object with projecting a image on both sides. When I go into the surface editor and load the tiff image and apply it to the front surface the whole program shuts down. I was also getting this problem with .mov files and read that LW for mac and .mov don't like each other so I change the .mov files to targa sequence. Before the change over I was getting the same problem but really want to know why my tiff files are causing the program to shut down. It happens in both Modeler and Layout.

Before suggesting another file format, you might want to double check that it is using RGB color space and not CMYK.

.tiffs and LW definitely don't get along. Best formats to use (imho) are png or psd. Targas should be ok, but I've found them a little less reliable, causing instability in LW.

The only .mov problems I know of involve the frame rate, so image sequences are definitely the way to go.
