Export to Tiff tiles

I need to export a features in my data frame according to a grid to tiff tiles with world files in a batch. DS Mapbook does not work since it exports it the tiles with a black border and no world file. We cannot export each grid block individually since we have about 3000 grid blocks. Any suggestions of how to solve this problem?

Mapping Center Answer:

There’s really nothing automatic that will work for this, you will have to create some kind of custom solution. I’m experimenting with creating a model which incorporates the Fishnet developer sample (http://arcscripts.esri.com/details.asp?dbid=12807). It’s the export to TIFF which is the main problem, and may only be solved by programming with ArcObjects.
