LDView Wrong color display in POV-Ray


Wrong color display in POV-Ray
#1
Hello, I loaded Lego models into LDView 4.3 and exported them as POV-Ray files. I noticed that some colors are displayed incorrectly in POV-Ray. I haven't found a way to adjust the colors. In the following picture, the output of LDView can be seen in the upper part, saved as a PNG file, and in the lower part the representation in PovRay. There are particularly large deviations in the transparent colors. Am I doing something wrong or how can I adjust the colors?

Do you have LGEO enabled for your POV export? If not, LDView should generate all the colors and have them have the same RGB as it uses internally. If so, though, it will use the LGEO colors defined in LGEO.xml, which might not match the current LDConfig.ldr file that defines LDraw colors.

Thank you for your fast replay.
No, I don't enabled LGEO. In the following picture you can see the regarding part of the options.
Is there another additional menue where I have to disable LGEO?

No, the "Use XML mapping file" option is the only place to enable LGEO. I'm not sure what is going on. Could you email your test file to the LDView email address? I will investigate.

Sorry for the lack of response. I did get the mail, but haven't yet determined the source of the problem.

Thanks, no problem. I had already suspected that I had made a mistake sending the email. Smile
