Hi guys.

I followed a tutorial where I am suposed to change a black solid to a middle gray. In the tutorial, he click the mouse in a middle gray area and puts these values for the RGB: 127 for Red- 127 for green- and 127 for blue. And the color code is 7F7F7F.

I dont understand whatever I do, when I enter the values I get a white color!!! I put the mouse in the middle gray area and get something like 0,489 in the RGB channels.

When I enter the color code 7F7F7F, I do get a middle gray color but not the 127 RGB values!!

What am I missing....

It sounds like you're looking at 32-bpc colors, whereas the tutorial is showing 8-bpc colors.

See this page.
