Does anyone know how to adjust the model widow to properly display the
coloring of the model as it appears in the preview window?
We use Wildfire 2, M040 (I think), and the preview window shows the
model as it should be colored. In the model window however, the display
is terrible, soft, over bright,, and sort of pastel looking. I'd like
to see it as it should be while I work on it.
Changes to overall system setting would be best, so it is correct all
the time, but I'll take suggestion to set changes for each new model if
The problem is this: with WF, Pro/e has added much capability to the Color and Appearance menu. But while it's possible to adjust hue, saturation, brightness, contrast, reflectivity and a bunch of other appearance characteristics for any user defined colors and appearances, the default, base color CAN NOT be adjusted. And, unfortunately, many gpus and drivers react differently to this default color.
One approach might be to investigate your current compatibility with Pro/e and upgrade to different card/driver (BTW, you may have a certified card but the wrong driver):
Another approach would be to set your default model to a better, alternatively defined appearance with the Color and Appearance editor, apply the color to your default start part, save the appearance in APPEARANCE.DMT, then put this file in your startup directory. Your new parts should retain the new default appearance and you need never see the annoying current default color/appearance again.
