Hi,

Seems when I save frames out as .tga, the imgage is tinted a blue-purple colour. Any ideas? Rendering in any other image format doesn't do this. The tga is set at 24bpc and rgb only.

Thanks!

I've recently learned from individuals more knowledgeable than I about such things that such files can have more than one standard for for color spaces. Perhaps the software reading your rendered Targa uses a different standard. If you have no other choice than to use Targa, you may be entering the often-confusing world of multiple color management:

Why did such a confusing state of affairs evolve? Beats me. Why do they make it so blessed difficult to create media file on a Mac that can be easily read by a Windows box, and vice-versa?

thanks for getting back to me - strange situation! on my mac the thumbnails seem to display the correct colour, but the minute I open the file in photoshop, quicklook, preview etc, the image appears tinted blue-purple.

but seems to have sorted itself out - restarted after effects and no more trouble.. hmm!
