• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

MSFS Blender: Does it export .tif files? (SOLVED)

Hi guys, is blender able to export .tif files? because my .tif files export as .png when I export any gltf model.

Please let me know.
Thank you.
Google's AI tells me this:
"Blender's glTF exporter requires image textures to be in PNG or JPEG format. However, the add-on will automatically convert other formats, such as TIFF, to PNG or JPEG, which can increase export time."
The blender exporter will change your tif files to png. That is because the gltf standard is png or jpeg. However ..... a new enhancement request based on my question to Khronos.

BTW this is even with the legacy Vitus exporter.

Gotcha you all. I'm just at the moment converting the file name from png to tif via the gltf. But its more secure and errorless if its part of the blender- export option in the future. Thank you guys.
