# Exposure in the viewport is drasticly different than the render [duplicate]

Okay, I am used to slight differences between my view port and the test/final renders, but this is really odd. I have never had the exposure be this far off!

What am I doing wrong here?

I am on 2.79a. using filmic. And, I think, just my usual settings. I have tried multiple hdrs and they all are wicked bright in this file.

When I put the bullets into a new file and render with the same settings, the two match.

What did I bump with my elbow by accident?
