3DS MAX - PNG/PSD/TGA alpha not showing

Q: 3DS MAX - PNG/PSD/TGA alpha not showing

For some reason, after choosing a png, psd or tga that has the alpha channel enabled after saving, it doesn't appear once the texture is chosen when applying it on a surface in the material editor.

I can preview the textures in programs like windows fax/photo viewer and it shows as transparent, but is either white or grey fill in when placed in max.

Is there something else I must do to make it show through? In the viewer it would show as a mostly white texture, instead of the metal grate it's supposed to be.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Needed to check the Processes running so I opened Task Manager. Initially found what I was
looking for and ended the process. Then I happened to notice the process shown below:

Did a Google search for it and got nothing. Type it in as http://www. and got nothing.

So, has anyone ever come across something like this and thus enlighten me ??

I just found this [link] and decided to post it. FireFox's 3.7 Alpha 5 lets you throw your tabs on the top of the browser window, right below the title bar, like Chrome. I've been wanting Mozilla to do that for a while now. xD

A:FireFox 3.7 Alpha

It's looking good so far, but they really need to remove the title bar for it to be on par w/ Chrome. Tabs on top AND flush w/ top of screen when maximized is what makes the feature great in Chrome (allows less precise clicking, if you're like me & don't switch tabs using key shortcuts).

I have a small wireless network and i set encryption to WPA instead of WEP for tighter security but I kept having problems with a couple of the pc's not going online and at other times all 4 didn't find each other. I tried WEP but it's not as safe as WPA and it didn't work well either. I heard of a product called Alpha Shield. I checked it out and bought it. Now, it's a firewall, blocks all 3rd party pop-ups, makes your pc invisible to hackers, stops MS Blast, My Doom and similar worms and has 100% guaranteed security. With everything it does, isn't my wireless network as safe as it would be if I had WEP or WPA encryption working?
Thanks,Jim
 

A:Alpha Shield

No. Alphashield is simply protecting the PC's, not the wireless network itself. Without WEP/WPA, anyone can get on your wireless network and connect to the internet through your router. ie. you're providing essentially free internet access to anyone within about 100 feet of your house.

If you don't care, then you're fine with just using that product.

FWIW, I don't think the problem you were experiencing was a WPA/WEP problem. I'd guess it may have been a shared key problem, or some other firewall (XP's built in firewall?) problem.

I thought that I would post as I have seen some software posts for invisible Web Surfing and I wondered what Alpha shield really does?

We use it at work at the request of management. We are XP, OS sp2 and are hi speed and have a router each and the Alpha Shield. The large company that looks after our computers did a test and it showed the Ports all in stealth and so I wondered under what concept this devise works and whether it is really good to use as they have given me one along with a router to use at home as I do take work home and do it on my notebook.

I really would appreciate comments. I should say that we have other security programs and have never had problems with our work computers, malware, viruses or other nasties!

I hope to hear from someone regarding this inquiry, thankyou.

Has anyone ran this yet?

I haven't ran it on Windows yet, but I did run it on my Powerbook G4, I'm very impressed with it. Really the only differences between 9.6 and 10a is the rendering engine, but it seems to be significantly faster. I used to use Opera as my primary browser for any OS, and have since about 2000, but a few months ago I dropped Opera for Safari on my mac because Opera was just too slow and giving me a pinwheel at times I didn't think it should.

I did delete every bit of Opera 9 before installing Opera 10, so some of my speed increase maybe attributed to a fresh set of settings/preferences...

Was just wondering if anyone else has given Opera 10 a shot yet and what they think.

You can get it here: http://www.opera.com/browser/next/
They are of course clamining its much faster ect. And it does pass the Acid 3 test, which is somewhat cool.

Hi,

I have been running this 8800GT Alpha Dog (factory OC'd) for some time now and it has been fine.

I did have some problems with it when I first got it (the same problem I am having now) and after quite a bit of investigation the general concensus appeared to indicate a heat problem with some 8800GT when it got over 75 degrees. So, I bought a ThermalRight HR-03 heatsink and fan to put on it and it worked fine.

Occasionally, when gaming (so it is when under load) it will totally lock up, graphics become distorted and sound loops resulting in me having to hard reset. I believe there isn't much else I can do and on the whole ive found it to be quite a capable card, but I am limited by this problem. As long as turn the graphics settings down a bit it seems to work fine, if I ramp them up (the card still runs a good FPS at the higher settings before it crashes) it will die at some point. This even happens with the side off the case and I have only managed to monitor temps up to around 70 degrees (normally maxes at 50-55 when gaming without crashes).

I am running it off an OCZ 700W PSU, single 12v rail but cant remember the amps off the top of my head.

I am considering changing the card out as I can not seem to get the best out of it, if I do change it I might aswell upgrade a bit. Any thoughts on a reasonable upgrade that isn't going to cost the earth (considering the card is 2 years or so old), looking at under 100 ideally. Either that, or anyone having an... Read more

Just one to pick your brains, I rig is ned of some updating, I hav a E6700 (not great but when I bought it it was the bee's knee!) paired with two geforce 8800gt XFX alpha dog xxx editions in SLI, juicey, yep, hot, always!! however I know the processor is in need of updateing but my question is how about the graphics cards? is it worth it or even cost effective to update with a more modern card or does the sli on 8800 work well enough, would I really see a huge difference (abet the electricty bill) if I went for a newer model?

Any input would be great.

Thanks
 

A:How does two 8800gt XFX Alpha dog xxx in SLI compare with..

That kind of depends on what resolution you game at, what level of eye candy you're happy with in-game, what games you are playing and budget if you were to upgrade.
8800GT's in SLI are a pretty popular setup and give reasonable performance up to 1680x1050/1200 in most older games (DX9 and OpenGL mainly) but I think that 1920x1080 is a more than a little taxing on the cards, as are games built primarily with DX10 and 11 in mind.
You can get an idea of how your SLI stacks up against some of the newer (AMD) cards here -it's reasonably recent although you can probably add a little to the newer cards fps to allow for driver improvements

On the heels of Firefox 3.6.3 Plugin 1 / 3.6.4 codename Lorentz Beta, Mozilla has made available for download a new release of the next major iteration of its open source browser. Firefox 3.7 Alpha 4 is currently available for download from Mozilla?s FTP servers, as it is a very early development milestone of the next version of Firefox. In fact, Firefox 3.7 Alpha 4 is the Mozilla Developer Preview 1.9.3 Alpha 4, and in this regard, not a full browser, and certainly not ready for end users, but instead designed to be tested by early adopters and developers.

Mozilla has released Firefox 3.6 Alpha 1, the first development step in the way for Firefox 3.6 (code named Namoroka), targeted for later this year.
One of the main themes in this release is making Firefox feel snappier to the user: whether you are launching it, opening a new tab, a sidebar, there is a difference on whether the action is done fast and perceived fast.

Sorry, I borrowed shelley's thread title - because I have a similar problem, but different.

When I open any folder the contents are in reverse alphabetical order. I can "Arrange Icons by Name..." and get them in correct order until I restart the computer, then they revert back to reverse order.
I have done this arrange deal thru Control Panel's Folder Options and applied to all folders, and have gone thru every individual folder seperately - only to have all changes reversed when I boot up.

As an added bonus Windows will not remember my preference in window sizing, either. I like "medium" windows when I have a lot of them open, but XP insists on maximizing them (again, this is after I have resized everything - then upon a fresh bootup everything I open goes full screen).

Now, even if I arrange every folder in correct order, if I use a program that bring up a windows directory choice, that also is bass-ackwards.

Example: trying to "Save As.." from any program may result in a window such as this:

<img src= "http://forums.techguy.org/attachment.php?s=&postid=833926 ">

Reverse alpha should be evident.

Anyway, I thought there might be a registry key change that might solve this, I am comfortable with regedits ( shudder) as long as I have proper instructions

Opera just recently released the new Opera 10.10 browser with support for an entirely new technology (Opera Unite), and they are already on their way for 10.50 which bring almost an entirely new Opera experience.

Right after 10.10 release Opera has also made available alpha versions of 10.20 which includes support for running Opera Widgets as standalone applications, without requiring the browse to run.

I am not sure if this is the right place to put this but here it is. I just need to know if this is a good graphics card to get for gaming. Thanks!
 

A:Questions about 8800GT alpha dog

Probably not, its a decent card but its pretty old, back from 2007. If you're buying a graphics card you should be buying a new model, used graphics cards are generally a bad investment.

What kind of games are you looking to play? My suggestion if you're going to be gaming is to get no less than a Geforce GTX 550 Ti or a Radeon HD 6770, and considerably better depending if want to play the latest games at the highest settings.

I just received my Amplifier yesterday and spent all day trying to get it to work with the Alpha R2. I am using the PNY GTX970 Graphics card and i even threw it in another computer to make sure the Video Card is working and it is.

The Alpha and AGA would boot up but the monitor would display no image, then the AGA stopped booting and now when i log into windows a message will appear, You must restart in order for the Amplfier to work, So i click Yes and the computer restarts but the same pop-up keeps appearing.

Any ideas?
