    Big Surface Brightness Difference From Modeler to Layout

    Is it me or do the surfaces in Modeler appear significantly darker than they do in Layout? I have to make sweeping adjustments to the Diffuse, Surface color and Luminosity settings in Layout to get anything close to what I see while I'm working in Layout.

    Check your options in BOTH Modeler & Layout for Color Space. Set both to use the sRGB preset and your done.

    You may want to check your colour space settings in Layout preferences.

    Here's a couple of great videos on Linear colour space that I found very useful.
