Renders are too bright all of the sudden
show user profile  Seyren
I don't remember modifying anything related with gamma, but everytime i try to render now everything is just too bright:

This is on the viewport:
This is when rendering:

I don't know when this started to happen but it is indeed very annoying.

I tried opening my old scenes and this popped up:

So if i load the file's settings everything gets render the way it was before this started to happen.

At first i thought it had to lower the gamma on the preferece settings, but it was set to 1,8, not even 1 or 2,2 i tried putting it to 1 or 2,2 and the render was the same.

I also tried removing the config ini to reset the settings, or saving the preset of an old scene and using it on a new one but didn't work

What am i missing?
Thanks in advance
Seyren

This might be a dumb question. But you don't by any chance have any exposure settings under environment tab?

The pop up you are seeing controls how texture are loaded into Max

Input: 2,2 is fine if you don't want to specify each time what gamma the image uses. Fine for most users. Beware of normals and displace, though, whose gamma is 1.0.

Output: 2,2 is fine if you plan to save 8bit images to disk. Fine for most users.

The exposure control of 3dsmax interfere with Vray controls, so turn it off. After that, everything should be fine(if not, post the frame buffer settings).

I'd argue that aiming for the correct gamma is the best way to do it even if you have high pixel depth since with integer type pixels theres really no difference and with floating point types you get more significant precision
