EXR file format and photoshop
Hi Guys

I have just recently upgraded to Maya 2016 SP4 and have noticed a slight issue when saving EXR files. I can not open them in photoshop CC 2015. I was able to open the ones from Maya 2016 SP3 without issue.

Anyone else seen this issue?

Cheers Myth

Photoshop can not open multi layer exr files, so it's not the service pack i would say it's the fact the last exr you opened was only one layer.

Open the file in nuke shuffle out the layer add a write node and save just that layer out as an exr and ps will be able to read it.
