Any one experienced this issue with Capture One 20. I see that the output Jpeg is warmer than how it looks in Capture One. Attached is an example.
How can this be fixed?
The photo on the left is Jpeg and the one on right is the processed raw file in capture one.

To me the one on the right looks more correct.

That's correct. That's how it looks in capture one. But when exported, it gets saturated.

I was able to resolve my issue. I am opening the JPEG files in Faststone viewer. There is an option in the settings to use monitor default colour management. Once I checked this box, the output looks fine. There still seems to be some difference when opened in browser.

I was going to say it sounded like a color management issue. I use X-Rite to profile my monitor at least once a month. That profile is then set to the default. The other thing I'd mention is when comparing two images it's better to have them both at the same resolution. Finally there's going to be a shift take place when you convert the raw to a JPEG, especially in tonal range, luminosity and saturation. To minimize that when I'm done editing, I create a virtual copy, then soft proof it to either sRGB or the International Standard profile, when the image is destined for web display. If the image is going to print the lab I use supplies the profiles for each of thier products, I use those to soft proof the file. I'm using LR and PS but I'm pretty sure Capture 1 does this as well.

Most browsers are not colour managed and use sRGB colour space. Chances are your monitor will be set to an adobe colour space so it will appear differently.
