When I place my renders from 3DS Max 2010 in Adobe InDesign CS6 with OS Windows 7 they become pale, even when exported as a PDF. I have tried Googling solutions but this keeps bringing up transparency settings.
I know this information is vague but I do not know what other information is needed.
Does anyone know why this is happening or a solution?
You'll have a difficult time finding many people who place PNG files directly in InDesign.
That said, here is something you should check out. There is a setting for Applying Gamma Correction in the options when placing a PNG file. It was posted as an obscure feature in the most recent InDesignSecrets.com podcast:
Worth checking out to see if that might work.
I tried to change the gama correction but it did not change anything.
I have noticed that PNG files made from other software such as Adobe Photoshop and Adobe illustrator work just fine, it's only PNG renders from 3Ds Max. These files are not my own so it's not a simple case of changing to Blender or Autodesk Maya. This makes me assume its to do with the render set up but I am not too sure what setting to change. The modeler who is rendering is using mental ray and a cel-shaded material. We tried rendering with a standard material but the same problem occured.
