Targa's wont show
on Dec 18, 2008 at 12:28:41 am

Hello once again, Maya community. I'm trying to place a targa seq. onto a plane in my scene, but it won't so up. I have render out targa's before from Maya and they work perfectly, but the ones I want to use now I exported them from Ae. If I just leave it as a still it works perfectly. But as soon as I turn it to an seq. it turns black. At the bottom of my screen I get a message that says"Name of my file," file doesn't exist, node file1.
Any tips!!!
Thanks

Make sure the file name is similar to the following.

name.framenumber.filetype

So for example this would work:

filename_something_1217.001.tga
filename_something_1217.002.tga
...


The following would not work because of the _:

filename_001.tga


If this doesn't make it play it could be something with the hardware texturing options. Tell it to display the correct channel.

Hope this helps.

Thanks a million. It now works perfectly fine. It wasn't recognizing the file ext. in the order I had it.

Not a problem man. It's easy to forget that Maya is so dang picky about sequence naming.

Happy to help.
