PSDs and TIFFs not Working in Maya
on Feb 26, 2010 at 8:25:31 pm

Hi,
I'm a reasonably experienced maya user running maya 8 on my computer, and my problem is that when I apply a PSD or a Tiff onto a shader in the hypershade it does not work.

In the work window, the object turns clear, and then when I try to render preview nothing happens and I get an error message.

I suspect that my psd & tiff file formats have an alpha channel setting that maya doesn't like. But so far my troubleshooting has come up short. Has anyone seen this problem before?

Thanks

What is the error message?

mental ray may have problems because it doesn't know what to do with psd files and dislikes lzw compression.
