Maybe I'm just dense, but for the life of me I can't figure out the Terrain Wizard, specifically creating a terrain from an image.
I'm trying to load a Grayscale 1280x1280 TGA (though I've also tried a 512x512 TGA and 1280x1280 BMP versions). When I hit "Load", an Open dialog comes up, I select my image and hit Open. Then a new Open dialog comes up, I select the image again, hit Open again, and it's not loaded in the window.
The wizard works fine if I try to paint or create the terrain in the box, but I can't load any images. What am I doing wrong? Is there some very specific criteria for the image? I couldn't find any documentation for the plugin.
I'm running 14.0c and 15.0 Beta (problem exists in both) on an Intel Mac with Leopard, if that matters.

I'm starting to think its a Mac thing Age, I can't upload images either. Anyone know a link to a tutorial for that Wizard?

I guess it is Mac only since I was able to load a 512x512 TGA on a Windows Machine (XP SP2) with V14, the image simply showed in the little window.
You might want to send a report, I don't think your doing something wrong and the double open thing makes it read like it is a software issue.
Edit: (2nd statement added, and capitalized Mac)

Thanks for the help, guys. I've submitted a bug report, so we'll have to see what happens.
In the meantime I guess I'll just install A:M under Boot Camp and use the terrain wizard under Windows until it's fixed.
