Program: Flash CS6
OS: Mountain Lion
Hardware: Intel MacBook Pro 2012
Steps to recreate issue:
1. Paint a color on the stage (brown seems to have the most dramatic results)
2. Use the color picker to sample the (brown) color from the stage
3. Use the paint bucket to apply the selected color to the stage
Result: the color painted from the sample color is not the color that has been originally sampled.
If you then sample the new color you have just applied, it again changes the color. Repeating this process over and over again eventually turns the color into the brightest red on the color palette.
Is anyone else have this issue or know how to correct it?
UPDATED: Attached is a link to the video of the issue in progress. For whatever reason my cursor doesnt show up correctly in the video, but what I am doing is using the color picker to sample the color and then painting the sampled color. As you can see from the video, the color becomes more and more red until it maxs out, even though I am just sampling the same color over and over again. The color on the left is the control color (the one that I originally sample) and the color on the right illustrates the bug.
Unfortunately this did not fix the bug I am experiencing. Its also not just limited to my laptop monitor, but also occurs on the external display my monitor is connected to, which leads me to believe it is a software issue. Thanks for looking out though!
I'm updating this thread mainly because it's the only thread I could find that describes my exact issue. I am having this problem. When I select a color using the color picker, it settles on a different, lighter color. THIS HAPPENS EVEN WHEN I ENTER THE HEX CODE VALUE. It's like Flash is auto-correcting a problem that doesn't exist. Help? This is becoming a serious problem for me!
Also Flash CS6, Mac OS X (10.8.2). The monitor I'm using shouldn't be relevant; Flash is literally changing the hex code value after I type it in or select it.
EDIT: Just did some research, found out that Flash isn't 10.8 compatible. When is that going to be fixed?
This could be because the System Color settings on MAC OSX 10.8 is set to a value other than sRGB. To reset System Color Settings, do the following:
Please check if changing this setting works?
