Eye Dropper Tool Not Working Outside of Keyshot Window
« on: February 05, 2019, 05:27:01 am »
When I try to use the eye dropper tool to get a color in say, chrome browser or any window outside of keyshot it only shows up as black.  I am using Keyshot 8 and I have never seen this problem before.

Hello Domatibil,

Would you happen to be using a dual monitor setup with KeyShot? If you are do you know if your Keyshot is opening on on your second monitor and if so can you try to have it open on the main monitor when using the eyedropper tool? There is currently a known issue that the developers are looking into what causes the eyedropper tool to turn black when it opens on a second screen.

I have the same issue on my end, dual monitor setup. Keyshot opens on the main monitor, though.

Also, ever since the eyedropped was implemented it consistently picks a colour that is considerably darker than the actual colour I'm trying to pick. Not just optical illusion, either; I've verified with RGB values. It's made the colour picker useless, even when it wasn't just coming up black.
