Hi
I need to render images with Z-channels which are readable in shake.
The formattes I tried (tiff and exr 32 bit) did not seem to work but I probably did something wrong!

Has anyone done this before or know how I might go about it?

Thanks

Discussed here [sidefx.com].

EXR is typically 16 bit float, btw. Either that or float tiff should work fine.

Cheers,

They are now working but rendered using the deep raster Pz vairiable rendered into its own file as the mantra -z didn't want to work for some reason - Anyway does what I want so I won't question it!!

Yah, you don't want the old -z thing - I think it's an older method that pushes it out to SESI pic format. You'll be wanting deep rasters, as you've found.

Cheers,
