Why is my file saving like this??????
show user profile  Justin101
Hey all,

I am rendering an external house in 3ds max 2015 with Vray 3.0 and have added a render element.
I have added a VrayExtraTex to render an ambient occlusion type dirt map along side the normal render to help add more depth to the shadows. The only problem is that once the render is done, it saves both the normal render and the VrayExtraTex Dirt map render seperately, but for some reason the second dirt map render is a black and whit mess. It looks nothing like the scene, but more like a bad tv signal with nothing but black and white pixels. Fortunately the dirt map render appears on the screen which can be saved over the horrible glitch save, but I see this will eventually be a problem when I start doing multiple net renders.

Does anyone know why the saved file is all glitchy, but the render that pops up on screen once the render is complete is fine? I save as either a TGA or PNG file. Below is what the glitch save looks like. Any help would be much appreciated.

So it renders fine but when you open it up this happens? Are you using photoshop? What bit depth?

I had an issue with photoshop at 32 bit depth a while back. Never found a solution but I'm sure it was due to my video cards. Might be related although the symptoms are a bit different.

Can't help, I get the buffer and file save mismatch all the time & have to use the buffer version, it doesn't matter how much I set up my LWF, it always randomly goes tits up at some point with darkness and / or gamma, I use Solidrocks..still not quite sure what it's doing to my setup ;)

Your Image looks like obscene AI...Is "Consider for Anti Aliasing" checked in your AO pass ?, maybe try disabling filtering as well.

Hey mate,

I think you may be onto something coz there is an option to change the bit rate or something like that.
I chnged it from 32 to 15 and it fixed the problem.

Thanks for steering me in the right direction. :-)
