saving as a TIFF

is there a way to add a sane file saving method when saving render as .tiff from Arnold Renderview? currently it always saving as a .jpg no matter if i adding extension to file's name or not.
(yeah, i know that can be get from [project_dir/images]/tmp).


also it would be very nice if you can make possibility to get transparency without AiSkyDomeLight set visibility - camera to 0.

all of above currently looks like shamanism and dances with tambourines, so i'm asking for UI to be more friendly to user.
thanks.

  1. In the Arnold Render View, click File > Save Image
  2. In the File Name box, give the output file a .tif extension
  3. You get a tiff file

You mean File > Save Image ?

I just saved example.tif from the Arnold Render View, and it's a tif.
