XDCAM footage becomes dark and noisy in AE
on Apr 14, 2010 at 9:02:35 pm

Hi guys,

I shot a bunch of nicely lit greenscreen footage the other day, it's shot using the JVC-GYHM100 in MOV format (with XDCAM EX codec). When I look at the footage in preview or quicktime (Snow Leopard), the colors stay nice and even (as they were recorded).
As soon as I import the footage in After Effects (CS4) however it becomes slightly darker, more saturated and noisier and becomes almost impossible to key nicely! I tried turning on the 'match legacy after effects quicktime gamma adjustments' but no luck. I'm not using any color working space in AE and the 'legacy quicktime gamma adjustment'checkbox is on...

I'm running out of ideas here! Someone please help!
