Hi!

I have some aerial imagery that I'm trying to import into CE, but it frequently shows up black. What have been the best solutions for figuring out why this happens?

In the above image, I am only using the terrain as a texture layer, but it is georeferenced. I originally had a bunch of JP2 files in ArcMap and then exported them to get either TIFs or PNGs so that CE could read the files. For some reason, only one TIF out of many works...

Ideas? This isn't the first problem I've had with black imagery, not sure what's going on.

Thanks!

SORRY!!! I found the answer here:

Basically, I had an 8-bit image and the export function of ArcMap 10.1 automatically changes it to 16-bit. The solution is to make the "NoData as" field empty.
