Hello all, I am having a major issue with Sketchup changing the output RGB color value from what the input RGB values are listed as in the material editor.
So here is what is going on. I have loaded this jpg image of a color palette into Sketchup. Then I create a material and use the on screen color picker to try and grab a color off the image to use as the color on a face. Now with all lighting and shadows disabled, it still outputs the wrong values. For instance with this green color “Classroom Zone 1”, the input values in sketchup are correct RGB (96,184,142), but the output value when taken to Photoshop WITH ALL SUN AND SHADOWS OFF is RGB (115,221,170).
Now to further complicate the issue, some colors are pretty close to the one picked from the color palette when using the on screen color picker tool, where as some (such as the green color in the example), is way way off. It seems almost random how it changes the color.
I can understand where the color value would change when viewed with lighting and shadows being adjusted, but with just a flat image from a top down view I don’t understand why I can’t get the color to match. If anyone can let me know if there is anything I can do I’d really really appreciate it.
