Start PCIWorks, select XPACE, then File Utility, then go to File-open and select the file you want to export.  Then go to File-Export to…

 

 

 

This brings up the following window:

 

 

 

Select the Source and destination file.  Important: When selecting the destination file you should specify that this should be “Saved as type” of .TIFF(6.0).  It is ALSO important that on the Export File window, you must specify the Output Format is also TIF-TIFF 6.0.  The default output format is a *.pix file.

 

Under Exportable items, you should hit the “Select All” button and then the “Add” button and then the “Export” button.

 

Then, Start ERDAS

 

Hit the  button, then fill in the Import/Export dialog box.

 

 

This involves specifying the import type as a TIFF file and the media as a File and then specifying the input and output files.  The output file should be an ERDAS *.img file.  Then hit the OK button

 

On the Input TIFF window, hit the Ok button.

 

 

Then wait for the job to complete.
