Illustrations after export are more red - Bigger saturation

Hi I have little problem when I link my illustrations from Twinmotions to ArchiCad25 and then I exported to PDF.

I see that walls are more Redder and feeling like with more saturation . I don't need super exact colors but similarly will be very good.


I'm using JPEG format because i need quite mini size of PDF.

Anyone know how to avoid it ?

And I know that I can switch to like PNG format but then PDF is much much bigger.

It is more than just the wall, your whole scene is becoming warmer. Are there colour space or temperature options when exporting from Twinmotion?

I don't get it what you mean Ling. 


1. I exported from Twinmotion to JPG

2. JPG link to Archicad

3. Archicad Export whole presentation with drawing and illustrations and just illustrations became warmer I didn't set anything in AC after linking.

I believe Ling is referring to Color Representation being exported and perhaps not translating well in ArchiCAD.


It will probably be set to something like sRGB or Adobe RGB.

As @Erwin Edel said, it is probably related to your color space - and also probably to whether your viewing app recognizes your monitor color space.  My experience is similar to these articles in that using jpeg, which typically will use an 8 bit sRGB color space, can result in a color shift depending if the original was using a larger color space.


Even though you say that you need quite small jpegs... you might experiment just to see if large/less-compressed jpeg is any better and if PNG or TIFF give you better results and/or if the TwinMotion export gives you a choice of color space for the export.
