Default Image sequence not loading ?

Hi 2 all

I have made a caustic sequence pattern for my animation using the free caustics generator that is found on the web.

I have converted it to a tiff file format aswell. But when I add the file sequence to a texture, say a simple lambert then I get this message when I turn on the USE IMAGE SEQUENCE button:

// Warning: Texture file C:/Users/Andrew/Desktop/caustics tiff/Water_Caustics_001Water_Caustics_001Water_Caustics _001.tif doesn't exist, node file4

Whats going on with this ??

Why won't it load my sequence ? It is fine when the use image sequence box is'nt ticked, so what can I do To fix this.

if anybody can help then that would be great.

thanks

Andy Gee

Hey guys thanks for the replies

Have found a quick fix for this, I opened the sequence in maya using the view sequence in fcheck, then saved the sequence again using maya's native ext.

That seemed to have solved it

thanks
