This has been bugging me forever, but I never got around to asking about it.
When I open an older scene file, work on it, then save it, almost invariably when it’s almost done its saving process, up comes a file requester. And the file requester wants me to “Save Texture Externally”, and it gives it a TIFF prefix, and wants to save it with the name of the .car file. Strange, cuz I don’t use TIFF for anything, or have TIFF as a setting anywhere in my scenes.
Fine, no idea what it is, but if it wants to do that it’s okay with me.
The problem comes when I accept the default name, hit Save, and the requester comes up again. Same requester. And then again. And usually it takes about 126 tries of the exact same requester, exact same filename, before it gives up and finishes saving.
Okay, I’m exaggerating with 126, but it’s usually more than 20. Probably more than 30.
And what’s even stranger, is that after the saving is all done, later on I’ll poke around to see if there really is a file it saved so I can figure out what it wanted to save.
NOTHING THERE. It’s like someone at DAZ was mad at me, and just wanted to annoy me.
Okay, I’m joking about that. I don’t want to get anyone at DAZ upset at me for a silly joke like that. So I apologize in advance. I certainly didn’t mean to upset anyone, or imply that anyone would actually do that.
So does anyone know what this is, and, more importantly, how to stop it?
