Color Management
« on: November 28, 2018, 01:27:28 pm »
I have several products that I'm rendering. All the artwork was either created in illustrator on indesign and exported as CMYK colors. When I place them as a label the colors pop way more. Is there a setting that I need to adjust so that the coloring is more accurate?  I know I can click on the image tab and adjust the curve and colors. Is there an easier way?

Thnx

Can you get the artwork in RGB? KeyShot is ALWAYS in the sRGB profile...

I would avoid using images with a CMYK color space as textures or labels. They will not look the same as they do in Illustrator or Indesign. The reason for that is KeyShot does not use color profiles to convert from CMYK to RGB color values. So the conversion is rather arbitrary and incorrect.
As Perry suggests, it is best to get the images in RGB color space.
