Texturing Transparency Troubleshooting Technical Support / Help – lambert tiff transparency issues

Mental Ray has issues with TIFF files and sometimes TGA files.

Problem:  My transparent tiff is not transparent.
Possible Fix:  In Photoshop, Image – Mode – 32 bits
Possible Fix 2:  Image>Mode>Change from Indexed Color to RGB
Possible Fix 3:  Save as a tiff without compression
Possible Fix 4:  Try saving as a PNG-24 file and see if you have the same issue.
Possible Fix 5:  Create a brand new Lambert and assign a brand new file and see if that works.

Possible Fix:

I tried saving tiff with no transparency, mapping a Lambert and assigning the material.  It worked perfectly, except, of course it was white where it should be transparent.

Shadows showing up square – lights not recognizing transparency
Possible Fix: Lambert – Shadow Attenuation is set to .500, you should set this to 0 and your shadow halos will disappear
