We are having great difficulty getting the colors in our finished exterior renderings to be even similar to our selected colors. All colors, whether from Revit, or custom RGB tones, render many times lighter than we expect. The ground and sky look normal, it's not as if the rendered images have an overall overexposure.  Even the shadow side of the building seems too light. On one example, we had to alter an accurate RGB color value acquired from Benjamin Moore down to 25% of its original luminosity in order to get rendering output that looked at all similar to the color chip.

What we would prefer to do is to be able to have the client select colors that we can download or scan, and then apply those RGB values or Jpeg tiles to the materials and have them render in a fairly representative way.

Our interior images end up a bit too light, but within acceptable tolerance and really do look so much better than the previous cartoonish system and we'd just like to get our exteriors looking as good.

Thanks for any help you can provide!

We have the same issue.

To get the colours to look right we have to make the RGB values darker. Sometimes this means changing values between each render until it looks correct, which can be quite time consuming.

Is this what most people are having to do? Or is their something we are missing.

Like Kevspicer said, i don't think it is the expose settings we use as i've tried playing around with these a fair bit.

Any insights would be greatly appreciated.
