Default Warnings all the time when using tiffs?

Hi,

whenever I load a scene containing tiff textures, I get numerous warnings in the script editor regarding "unknown taggs". The textures work fine though, both in the viewport and when rendering.

Anyone else seen this and is it just a quirk of maya?

cheers

Yes, but this is even before I render. When I hit 6 to display textures, I get all these messages in the script editor.

I know some folk have had issues with mr/tiffs, but they've always rendered fine for me.

cheers

maybe it is that conflict with the tiff compression.
are they compressed. i think that mr likes uncompressed tiffs only. so maybe till now you had uncompressed once. maybe re-convert those images or try a different format. that would def help.

Hi,

they're not compressed at all so it's weird. Still work fine though - maybe not good prective though.

What other format is as good? I know that jpegs aren't so good for retaining quality - are targas as good? Or another format?

cheers

I use pngs and jpegs most of the time. pngs have great quality (almost no difference to tiffs) and are small.
