Models turn Dark.


So, I recently updated ArchiCAD to the recent version 27 from 26, and I started opening up my projects with that. I also use enscape as a means to render. I just updated that to its most recent version as well. after doing so, all my Models in 3D view turned into a dark version with some textures added to it. 

I checked with my others who view their models in the same setting and theirs seems to be where it needs to be. 

Below are two images. the building in the lighter color tones was the original and the darker tones are what it looks like after the update. 

I'm updated on everyt

Has this happened to anyone else?

You have posted the same image twice, so no difference can be seen; please replace one of the images.


You should add a Signature to your Profile (click the Profile button near the top of this page) with your ArchiCAD version and operating system (see mine for an example) for more accurate help in this forum.

Maybe related to the new Phyiscally Base Rendering Beta for the 3D Window that was introduced with AC27? Others have suggested turning it off.
