Contrast/color shift when exporting ProRes??
Posted 01 February 2012 - 06:26 PM
I exported a 2 minute scene from a 1080 ProRes HQ timeline, and made it into the same ProRes HQ 1080 file. Filters had been applied and rendered out fully in the timeline.
It's pretty obvious that the new file, when played back, has a contrast and saturation shift. The shadows were bought up and are slightly milky/more grainy, and the color has faded slightly. I assume this is pretty common when dealing with FCP. Is there a known fix or am I doing something wrong? Why would the codec-matching exported file not look exactly the same as my timeline footage?

Did you export as a quicktime coversion or export as quicktime with current settings and make movie self contained checked? It is not normal for FCP to do this or at least I haven't encountered it.

We really do have to get rid of that technology...

My typical process is FCP, send to color, send back to FCP, then export movie and work in compressor from there. And my timeline/footage settings are regular ProRes, 1080p. I haven't noticed any issues yet, but then again, my eyes probably aren't that sharp for these things yet.
