So I'm going through the texturing DVD again and i keep having issues when i set up my actions to save tga's.  I followed the steps to the 'T' but every time i run the action it saves "as copy" instead of saving over the original... any ideas on how to work around this?

hmm, that is strange. I assume your are following something like this, but try it anyway:

Start recording action:

Ctrl+shift+s (save as)

change to tga

Uncheck Alpha if you aren't using it

Uncheck save as copy if it is highlighted

double click the name of file you want to save it as

select 24 / 32 depending on the aplpha

Stop action.

That's all I did, should work Smiling
