(Repost from KeyShot forum) I can't get specific, but I have come across several Pantone colors that
are not the same when compared to Illustrator. And it isn't lighting
environment related, I'm talking about the RGB values.
I drag a particular Pantone+ Solid Coated v4 color swatch onto my material, click on the material color and look at the RGB values. Then, in Illustrator, I open the Pantone+ Solid Coated swatch library and drag the same Pantone onto a rectangle as the fill. Then I switch the color mode to RGB and compare the values.
Can someone explain this discrepancy? I would think Pantone colors should be the same across any program. I suppose I could pull a random Pantone number to show the difference if needed
Thank you Erik.
Is there any way to make the two match up? I've never worked with color profiles before. For me, it would be preferable to make KeyShot match Illustrator.
You can download various color profiles from https://www.keyshot.com/resources/downloads/assets/.
The YouTube tutorial at IES Color Profiles may also give you a few tips as to how to better match your color profiles.
Let me know if these help.
