hmm. it's not really that big of a surprise

I exported as a TIFF which holds transperancy (oddly enough MUCH better then PNG) AND is MUCH better quality then the JPG's i was previously exporting with.
I can't remember if tiff is uncompressed data or not, but if it is, it's lossless (or close too... i can't remember)
it's not as lossy as png. lossy meaning when it's compressed it looses quite a bit of data that can't be brought back when uncompressed (if i remember right)
JPGs are always lossy, and if you save straight out from Maya i think it uses the lowest quality compression (hence why giant images are only 20kb)
like hammer said, tiff and tga are generally what people use because they aren't so bad as the others. they do take up more space on your harddrive though.
there's probably nothing wrong with the roads reflection, it just doesn't look wet, so it looks partly mirror-like... sorry, can't help on a solution for that
that's a "Ch" pronounced as a "K"
Computer skills I should have:
Maya, XSI, Photoshop, AfterEffects, Motion, Illustrator, Flash, Swift3D
