I have a regular unreferenced LCD monitor (LG Flatron E2422). The footage from my camera comes with embedded Rec. 709 profile. But in After Effects when I set working space to "HDTV Rec. 709" or to any of the available profiles the footage color doesn't change at all. I don't think there is a problem with After Effects, because when I play same footage in Media Player Classic and click "enable" in color management tab nothing changes too.
Recently I reinstalled Windows 7 and this problem appeared. Before that, color management worked as it should in both After Effects and Media Player Classic. Do you know where the problem can be?

Ok, figured it out myself. If color management does nothing when you turn it off, just install a color profile. I used free tool called "Calibrized". You can leave all settings as is and just click next until the setup is finished. The main thing is to have a custom color profile applied in Windows color management settings. Calibrize does just that.
