View Full Version : What is correct, and why is this happening?

The top sample was rendered by choosing the RGB color.
The bottom sample is rendered with the RGB color in the color slot as a PNG (blend texture is unchecked).

Why is it so much darker when the color is applied as a texture?

(ignore the "original color" that was nothing. I know it looks a lot like the second sample. )

In my opinion the first sample renders nearly pink (or at least too washed out for My taste). The second one might be a little dark, but that could be the environment not being terribly bright. I don't expect a color to match exactly due to shading and lighting, but there is definitely something strange going on here becuase one is darker than the other, but they are the same color. Notice the sample slots are the same color.
