moving textures

I like many of the tecture effects of blender, but once I’ve made a texture, if I want to say, use it in Carrara (blender is starting to not be able to render my stuff), how do I save it? Would be REALLY cool if I could save my halo effects to be used in other programs, but I doubt that’s possible.

You can’t save the texture as portable code (maybe with Python?), only an Image from your Render camera. If you’re clever maybe you could render to XML and scoop something from there.
