A series of Bryce headaches on my mac...
I've used Bryce for years, but I'm suddenly having issues with it. I'm on an Intel Imac running OSX 10.6.8. I'm using Bryce 7.1
The first problem is one I noticed in the last iteration as well, but just worked through it, since I'm using my Bryce work as pre-prep for paintings rather than as a finished product.
The issue is that when I try to put an image as a material on a terrain, it imports in shades of blue, regardless of what color the original image is. I typically will import a grayscale file (most often 2048x2048). For some reason it's importing and showing up blue, regardless of whether it's tiff or jpeg.
The second problem is that when I import a picture as a material, it stops me from being able to save the file. I start to save, and it hits 33% or 70%, then I get the spinning beach ball of doom and Bryce quits unexpectedly (of course at this point it's entirely expected). I had this problem with an older version of bryce as well, though it was alleviated by saving the the desktop rather than to a folder. This version just throws in the towel.
I've attached a jpeg of the original image, and the image as it appears when I try to import it.
If anyone can provide some insight I'd be grateful. Thanks!
