Repainting problem

Recommended Posts

I have done numerous painting in photoshop using DDS and PSD files - no problem

Now a friend requested to do a Wilco A340 painting.

On the CD in the paintkit folder I found the PSD files.

Very basic files, no master file but that I can create myself.

 

Anyway, I noticed that the A340 uses BMP in the texture folder as opposed to DDS.

Saving my work as a BMP works if you look at the airplane from close up.

As you move away from the plane, the fuselage becomes metal gray

Probably I am not saving the file with the correct options, but I have tried just about every setting and can't get it to work.

 

Any hints ?

Thanks

Well, the coffee didn't work :mad:

As far as I know, there is no option re mip-maps when saving BMP in photoshop

I use a work-around now : photoshop saving as PSD , load that file into DXTBmp as save as extended BMP

When colors look OK at short distance and change when distance increases, it has to do with mipmapping i.m.h.o.
