fpic / pictctrl reduce quality?

Mar 29 2007 | 7:13 pm

hi all,

I’m making an interface using a picture created in photoshop.
The problem i have is that both fpic and pictctrl objects display the picture slightly ‘different’ from photoshop (or preview,or.. etc.).
When i’m saying ‘different’ i mean that the original colour of the picture is dark green while the colour in fpic and pictctrl is light green for some reason.
However, the option ‘paste picture’ seems to work fine but I’m not sure if I can use it as the comments in ‘fpic’ object are a bit discouraging.
"hassles of saving pictures into patcher files" ?

the interface will be used for making pluggo plugins

Did you read this in the manual:

Note: The fpic object requires that QuickTime be installed on your system to open any files other than PICT files. If you are using Max on Windows, we recommend that you install QuickTime and choose a complete install of all optional components.

It might be an issue of format.

hi Johan,

i forgot to mention, I have Quicktime pro installed on a powerbook g4 running osx 10.3.9.

I still can’t find the problem. It doesn’t make sense to me…
