8-Bit TIF File Errors in Material Editor

It appears Maxwell v5.1 has an issue reading 8-Bits/Channel, RGB TIF files. If I change to grayscale or 16-Bits/Channel I don't have the issue.

Reported, it seems that happens with LZW compression only. Thank you.

Hi,

there is the same problem with trees and bushes from "Laubwerk". In V3 it works well, in V5 not. I hope, you will fix it.

Hi Fernando,

the problem with the "Laubwerk" trees exist also with the actual version "maxwell_cinema4d_v5.1.1_WIN". I don't know, if it has the same reason? I hope, it will be fixed too.
