    This is a weird one. All the colors read correctly in the reflections not on the set I made. Some in the middle are but the rest are wrong. Each panel is backlit by a colored light. I don’t get it.

    Any ideas? I’m almost finished but this problem is blocking me from finishing it.

    Are you rendering with Element 3D or is this a Cinema 4D rendered sequence?

    It’s rendered in C4D with the physical setting.

    And thanks very much for the reply. I’ll look up what Element 3d is because I have never used it.

    Is it possible for you to share a scene file and a sample of what you are trying to achieve with me?

    What I’m trying to achieve is what is in the photo. I just need the colors to show up correctly.

    Just wanted to update. I finally figured out what may be obvious to many. My problem was in the render settings. I didn’t have COLOR MAPPING checked in my render. Once I changed it it fixed my problem.
