bmp and gif are not displayed

Post by aldis » Thu Jan 24, 2013 2:34 pm

Hello,
I'm using blender 2.65 on Win7.
I'm loading image sequences into blender to create a movie out of them. This works perfectly with jpg files but not with bmp or gif files.
Any idea why.
Please tell me if this is not the correct forum.
Best regards
Wolfgang

I don't believe that BMP and GIF are supported formats (and yeah, I'm too lazy to go check for sure). You could run a batch converter (like ImageMagick or such) and convert your files to PNG (or JPEG) format.

yes, gif and bmp is not supported...I know cuz I tried importing gif reference image as plane and got an error...

u can simply use ms paint to save as jpeg, png, etc...thats wat i do..
