Any one knows about? : )


Colorspace in File node

Both are the "from" colorspace. When a tx is created, the texture is converted from that colorspace to the rendering colorspace (the rendering colorspace is specified in the Color Management preferences).

The colorspace in an aiImage node or File node is used by auto-tx

The colorspace in the Tx Manager is used when you create a tx in the Tx Manager. But that doesn't seem to be working, and I've logged a bug for that.

Thank you for your answer, stephen.


I see, thats why I can't tell the difference, because the bug...

oh

I have another question, when I create a tx in tx manager, why not let the tx's colorspace follow the file node or aiimage‘s colorspace setting, just like before?

a lot of tutorials may suggest that you disable the auto convert textures to tx, right, if users pre-convert the tx manually, the users have to set colorspace twice for one type of colorspace.

why double work?

I mean, more options, more confusion, right?
