sRBG, LWF...Washed out render
show user profile  9krausec
greatings! I have been noticing that my renders are pretty washed out whilst using the VFB with sRBG clicked! In my settings I have my Gamma at 2.2 (3ds max settings) with both the affect material and selectors clicked. I am working in Rienhard color mapping.

I just want to make sure I am doing this right with this whole sRBG VFB dealsky.

I'll answer any questions. thanks.

krausec, you don't set the gamma to 2.2 and use the sRGB button.
If you render to 8 bits per channel, set the gamma to 2.2.
If you render to floating point, don't correct the gamma.
The thing is the frame buffer displays the image in 256 colors (8 bits), no matter how you save your file. So in order to see how the floating point render really looks like, you press sRGB.

See if this clarifies things a little:

That's one way of doing it but I recommend having max gamma set to 2.2 and vray gamma set to 2.2 also but have 'don't affect colors' checked.

Then when you save the file if you save the file as an 8 bit format manually override it to 2.2 with the save image dialogue. If you are saving to exr leave it at default.

That's totally the wrong answer Garp. You should be more like Nik. Learn a lot, you could.

Personally, I'd leave the vray setting to 1.0 and save to exr.

If you leave the vray setting to 1.0 your render times take a hit because you need to lower the noise threshold and increase the max samples to get a clean render. If you have it set to 2.2 then Vray sees what you see and adapts accordingly.
