I have an image with lighting and shadows that I like created with the image viewer, but it looks much different when I render it. How can I get the render to match the image viewer output, or is there a way to output a sequence with the image viewer renderings? 114150

Are your Color Space settings setup properly? The Color Space settings can be accessed via the CS tab in the Layout Preferences. Are your Display and Output settings different?

Color space is all set to linear. I'm not seeing anything different between display and output.

Just to clarify, using F9 to render a single frame (png). Comparing that to F10 render sequence (png) and seeing different lighting/shadows.

Save out to sRGB and the images should look the same.

I think it has something to do me using shadow maps on the lights, and the self shadow and cast shadow setting on the object.

shadow maped lights don't render on VPR, they are changed to ray traced shadows. Shadow maps don't compute transparency so any glass will cast a 100% solid black shadow.
