3DS Max Image Problem

I have a TIFF image layer onto a terrain topography as a material texture in 3DS Max Design 2013 yet when I open it in Navisworks Manage 2013 the image is reduced to hundreds of little tiles on top of the terrain. It looks okay in 3DS but changes in Navisworks. The same thing happens with either a 3DS or FBX file.


I have successfully appended a DWG which includes the same image, but it ends up as 2D; not following a 3D topography. That's why I attempted to use 3DS Max Design. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
