I was sent an png for a texture by a friend. The image is 192 x 24 pixels Image from Friend it's properties are correct in windows explorer when I view the downloaded file, but as soon as I open it in blender...it's y pixels are halved so it's very much blender. but I don't know why.

If I use the blender Image Editor and Alt+S to save the image again, the original is converted to 192 x 12 (Which is half the y)

Distorted Aspect Ratio

  • $\begingroup$ The Field box should only be enabled if you are dealing with interlaced images. Interlaced images store the information for the odd and even lines of a single frame separately. Those lines have to be recombined to form a full frame, like this image. In general is a technology used in video to achieve smoother motion at the expense of spatial resolution. . read: animemusicvideos.org/guides/avtech/video2.htm $\endgroup$
