Rhino Bitmap Placement Error

Hi All,

I’ve been trying to get one of my sketches into Rhino4 using the “Background Bitmap” command. In the past it’s worked just fine. Today it’s struggling. I’m getting strange error: “The specified file cannot be identified as a supported file type.” I’ve tried bmp, jpg, tiff, png to no avail, they all give me the same error. The files aren’t crazy big- 150-300Kb.

Anyone run into this issue?
(I’m running Rhino4 SR9- the latest service pack. )

Thanks in advance,

Check to make sure the image is RGB, and not CMYK

That was one of my first thoughts as well, despite being set at RGB, I’m still having no luck. Thanks though…

You can try PictureFrame and then lock it. The nice thing about PictureFrame is that you can insert multiple images in various planes to work from. You can also use normal trimming tools on the inserted images to assist.
