    OK, I've downloaded the opening crawl file and, rendered it and everything went well. I have in my possession Adobe Illustrator 9 and Photoshop 7. I opened the story.trg (whatever the initials are) file in Photoshop and tried to delete the text to add my own, no go. I made an exact size shape file, added my own text, replaced the file in the crawl file, no good, it has a "orange" like side and highlight to it. SO.... here's the q: how would one go about 1. editing the original file in Photoshop, or 2. make my own in PS but do WHAT exactly to it, transparent, black background, ...??? Please help a dude out, I'm almost finished with my FF but I really want to finish this "my" opening crawl, thanks ahead of time, your friendly neighborhood JimBobCarl!

    There's nothing hard about editing at TGA file in Pshop. You probably did all of that correct. Problem I think is... that's a really old MAX/3DS file. It's ancient. Sounds to me like there's a material setting on your plane messed up and/or a lighting problem. Both probably stemming from using such an old MAX file... or importing an old 3DS file. You should work on those two things... or just start from scratch using your new TGA file and remake the scene with your version of MAX. IF that's what you are using.
