I have found the reason why the image in the Picture Viewer is darker. Please go to the Project Settings and enable Linear Workflow.

Hi, I´m having the same issue.
Recently I jumped from R20 to 24 and started having the same problem. The IPR renders much lighter than the final render. The problem lies at the IPR on S24 because the final image looks darker in After Effects and Photoshop, and R20 renders the scene exactly the same (darker).


This is what I tried so far:
- Deactivating/activating Linear workflow in the project settings

- Changing the Display color profile at Viewport Display in Preferences

- Activate/deactivate Enable color profile in the Picture viewer.

Could be the same problem in S24 which was reported here: https://answers.arnoldrenderer.com/questions/33360/brightness-bug.html

If that does not explain the issue, and it's specific only to this scene, then just send me the scene, so I can take a look.

OK, thankyou-was is a bit concerning, is that I've made many renders without any issue, except for now, I changed nothing, but will check, thank you for your time

Seems like a color space mismatch. Please check the Display Color Profile in Edit > Preferences... > View and if the color profile is enabled in the Picture Viewer:

It has no effect on the snapshot take from the IPR window because it is saved as an sRGB image, however it has effect on the rendered image, so this would explain the difference.
