One of our users brought this up, File Sizes in 2013 are considerably larger comred to a Render done in 2011 with the same parameters (Output Image Size & Render Quality).
Has anyone run into this?
Is there an Option I'm missing that causes this?
I probably won't know the answer to your question, but I'm curious what image type are you using (png, bmp, etc.)?
We've tried TIF, png & jpg.
SW2013 is using Modo 601 code. Not sure what version of Modo SW2011 used.
The parameters for the image quality/compression being saved out has likely been tweaked between versions of Modo/PV360.
Yes I asummed the added functionality had something to do with it, was just wondering if it was something that could be changed in the Final Render Options. It is not the end of the world, but we generate a lot of renderings (simple ones) and share them with customers and partners via email.
I do not think that code is visible in the PV360 module to tweak. There are some things you can tweak in the cfg files in the photoview folder. Some settings are sitting in plain text files.
The compression type and image quality for tif, png and jpeg is a System Preference in Modo. There may be a registry settings that you can find and are brave enough to try changing.
You may need to open the files in PhotoShop, Gimp, IrfanView, etc and save out with a compression scheme that gives a more compact file size.
Would be a good enhancement request to have those controls visible in PV360.
