Another stupid question
show user profile  GloriaJean
MAX 2016
How do I get TGA files to show up in the Material Editor map chooser? It shows JPG and PNG & other bitmaps but TGA's are just generic placeholders until you actually choose 'em. How does one get them to appear like JPG's or other filetypes?

Thank you

Are your TGA's visible as thumbnails in explorer ?

No, not without an added application which does me no good in MAX. I tried the application suggested by Microsoft but it did not work either.

Can you post screenshots of what your actually looking at ?

When you select material map browser, then bitmap, you will see the thumbnails on your system, if you don't have TGA thumbs enabled by a third party plugin like Sagethumbs, you won't see them.

I downloaded Sagethumbs as you suggested. It fixed my problem. Thank you so very much for the quick reply and the remedy.

What would I do without you?

np, I don't have a webpage :/ ... well I do , but I don't maintain it or link to it :)

Yeah Sagethumbs is essential, if some of your psd's don't show you need to increase the maximum image size as psd's tend to get big, it's the only issue I've ever had with it.
