In case you have MS Workplace and SU, are you able to do a fast take a look at please? – Professional

MS Workplace (Powerpoint, Phrase and Excel) enable SU fashions to be inserted into paperwork for interactive displays and so on.

We are attempting to leverage this functionality for our shoppers however the texture colors change dramatically when inserted. I’ve examined on two totally different Macs utilizing totally different variations of SU and Workplace and the OS.

In case you are in a position, may you please import an RGB picture into SU, save the mannequin, then insert it into one of many Workplace apps. Please report again right here to say whether or not the colors have modified. I’ll then know if the problem is ours or extra generalised.

Listed here are the outcomes I’m getting:

LH aspect: Mannequin in SU RH aspect: Similar mannequin inserted into Powerpoint

Thanks upfront

One thing is unquestionably getting misplaced in translation.
This was on a Home windows machine with the 2023 model of SketchUp.

Thanks for that. Sure, it might seem at first look the problem could be Mac associated!

Properly ! To begin with thanks for letting me learn about this superior characteristic!

This definitely does open up a couple of fascinating workflow prospects utilizing Powerpoint as an alternative of Format!!

Second: the reply to your query is:

I’m on PC by the best way (win11)

Format and Workplace each use a default “world illumination” setting to simulate mild/shade and render the picture.
You may see how this impacts color/shade once you place a dice of the identical colour sides into the mannequin.
Sketchup’s could be overridden by choosing these Shadow settings: Gentle = 0, Darkish = 80, Use Solar for Shading = On. Then you’ll be able to see that rotating a 3d object has no impact on the colored faces…they’re all as per RGB values.

You may show this by rotating the mannequin inside Workplace…the colors in addition to the shading modifications.
I used Excel to check.
There’s no query that Workplace is simplifying the render… SketchUp’s picture high quality is way “cleaner”.
Workplace appears to be affecting colour extra, with a chilly hue for face-on photos and a heat hue for photos dealing with to the best hand aspect… dont ask me why!

Thanks for that. It’s certainly a really helpful characteristic (when it really works)

I can see what you’re speaking about by way of the lighting, however I’m fairly certain that has no bearing on my instance because the hues themselves have modified. Crimson has turn into blue and vice versa. Inexperienced stays inexperienced however a lot of the yellow has been eliminated.

I experimented with inverting the colors in Photoshop to see if I may invert them previous to importing into SU, however there didn’t appear to be a simple repair.

I feel I’m going to have to return and look once more.

Share your mannequin and that i can verify it

a protracted shot, however you would additionally strive Choices/Superior settings changes.

And any graphics/show driver settings for High quality vs Efficiency

Prior to now I’ve encountered many photos that dont show correctly in numerous software program, as a result of some distinctive compression settings. Have you ever tried totally different photos to see if the problem goes away?

Sure, in fact, right here it’s.
color take a look at.skp (946.3 KB)

I don’t know if it’s a Mac factor however I can’t see these superior settings inside any of my Workplace apps (all updated).

It appears to be like okay to me. Nonetheless a bit “pale” wanting.
So it have to be a Mac factor.

Curiously your take a look at confirmed me that Excel even casts shadows within the 3d area… cool.

Good photograph by the best way. I knew a man who’s a photographer for Getty photos…discuss a dream job!


So it’s not a Sketchup subject.

Which implies it’s both Mac or Workplace on Mac.

I’ve additionally found what the problem is, simply not why it occurs.

Of the RGB channels, R and B have been swapped. So what must be pink is blue and vice versa.

At the least now I can edit the photographs earlier than importing. It appears to be like mistaken in SU however works accurately in Workplace.

Thanks once more
