saving as a TIFF

is there a way to add a sane file saving method when saving render as .tiff from Arnold Renderview? currently it always saving as a .jpg no matter if i adding extension to file's name or not.
(yeah, i know that can be get from [project_dir/images]/tmp).

also it would be very nice if you can make possibility to get transparency without AiSkyDomeLight set visibility - camera to 0.

all of above currently looks like shamanism and dances with tambourines, so i'm asking for UI to be more friendly to user.

You mean File > Save Image ?

I just saved example.tif from the Arnold Render View, and it's a tif.

@Stephen Blair can you please tell me how to change file type while saving with Arnold Renderview so i could get TIFF? because i got only jpegs.
here are screenshots of arnold' settings and result (also tried to add extension manually - doesn't work either.)


when i changing "Image format" to tif, png or exr, it saving renders as jpg in any case :((((

  1. In the Arnold Render View, click File > Save Image
  2. In the File Name box, give the output file a .tif extension
  3. You get a tiff file
