White background is grey

Hey there

So setting the background to absolute white “#FFFFFF” does not result in a white color but a grey color. I even bumped the brightness up a bit in Post process but i cant do it to much as it affects my model colors as well. Im sure we used to be able to get it proper white before so something has changed here.

Here is a crop of a screen shot of the view running once exiting the editor … notice the background color compared to the surrounding webpage… it is very far from white.

ok i discovered it is the filmic post process that does this … mmm that is a bit of a catch 22 now…

SO the way to fix this was to upload a white texture background , as that seem to not be affected by the post process. I dont use filmic too often so this caught me out by surprise :wink:
