The Targa (TGA) file format is commonly supported by MS-DOS and Windows color applications. It is a pixel based format similar to TIFF. It is available on both Windows and Macintosh versions of form•Z.


Exporting Targa files

The TARGA specific export options.

The form•Z image displayed in the current window is exported as a Targa file in the standard manner. The Export Options: TARGA dialog, in addition to the common export options, contains a format specific option.


Compress: Selecting this item causes the Targa file to be run length encoded, which results in a smaller size without losing any image information. Targa files will always export the image displayed on the window (which can be a modeling or a drafting window) and they are always written as 24 bit color pixel images.
