Blurry paintjob

Recommended Posts

Hi all,I have been dabbling in painting recently and having a ball. I have even figured out how to get reflections to work. I have only one issue that maybe you can help me with. When I load the aircraft with the new paint, the lettering is blurry until I zoom all the way in then zoom back out. After that it looks fine. If I return to the cockpit and then back to outside view, it gets blurry again. Could it be an artifact of my video card? It only does this on paint I have done, never on default aircraft. It's driving me crazy.My tools are MSPaint (Vista), DXTBmp to convert back and forth, and Photoshop Elements 6. I convert back to DXT3 format for reflections. What am I doing wrong? Pleeeeeez help.Thanks in advance.

When you convert your files to extended bitmaps using DXTBmp make sure to not include mipmaps.There is a check box located under the alpha thumbnail.Including mips will make your textures blurry and should only be used if you are painting for AI aircraft.regards,Joe
