    Material not rendering correctly

    I'm using the Acme brick masonry designer. The building I need to match is using the Chateau blend. So, I found it on the masonry designer and saved a jpeg. I used that for my wall material.

    When I render, it's coming out light brown instead of medium reddish. I've tried using other colors, even burgandy brick, and it still comes out brownish. Anybody know why?

    I've tried messing with the exposure settings, but that doesn't help at all. And yes, I now my guy out front is hovering off the ground! lol

    Oh, one more question. Anyone have an idea as to why the right corner of my awning is black, like there's a shadow there or something? I can't figure that out.

    That´s pretty common behavior for bricks in Revit. You can adjust it by choosing the render image, edit it, and turn down the brightness - See the attached :beer:

        Any other tricks? It made the bricks less washed out, but they are still brown.

          Hmmm... Tried turning the bump amount up ? If that don´t work either, try posting some screen dumps of your material settings.

            Nope, it's still brown. What settings do you need exactly? The only thing that really affects color that I can see is the brightness setting. I've been up and down the scale already.

              I adjust the hue/saturation level of the jpeg in photoshop until I get the desired result I'm looking for. Just a bunch of trial and error...

                That just sounds like a lot of work. lol

                  Dan, if you make a copy of the project, and then delete everything but the exterior walls and the 3D view, run a purge, and upload the project + the brick image (+ bump map?) here, I´d be happy to have a look at it later.
