 Incorrect Color Depth 

Reply with quote
Hi, I'm having problems when I attempt to use the batch animation process. I'm on V.3.0.72, I loaded up an image that was a TIFF file, than attempted to apply the Depth Map to it. It said that it was an "Incorrect Color Depth (32) and to supply an uncompressed bitmap of 8 bt or 24 bit color depth. Well, when I look at the specs in photoshop it shows already that it is 8 Bit. So i decided to try and convert it to a greyscale, and than it worked. When I tried to do an animation, when I would scrub over to later frame, the same message would come up, even though it had been greyscaled. So I tried to convert all the depth maps to a BMP file, uncompressed at 8 bits, but the same message still came up! I'm a little bummed right now and could really use some help! Why is it saying this to me?

Wait,....I figured it out! For some reason it wasn't liking that I had an alpha channel on the source image. So I ran the several hundred frames through photoshop and just batch-autamated deleting the alpha channel. Now it seems to be working great! Awesome product!
I'll post some screen shots after I finish the entire animation.
