I edited my video in Premiere Pro but I wanted to grade my project in DaVinci Resolve. So when I import the XML file to DaVinci everything looks good except the video is to dark. I Googled my problem and found out that there is a button in the Project settings under Color management called "use mac display color profile for viewers". That actually fixed my problem when I was editing the video on a Mac. Now however I am using a Window machine and this button or any other similar is not visible. I have tried to change the color space but that wont fix my problem.
I am using Window 10 operating system and DaVinci Resolve 14.0.0b.020
Don't try to judge color and brightness on the GUI monitor. Use an external calibrated display, and use a color-managed signal out of a Blackmagic Design video output. This will give you much more reliable results.
Unfortunately, the "fix" is to not assume a gui on a Mac and a Windows box will look the same. Different engines, (I'm assuming) different monitors, different graphics cards with different settings. Ask yourself 1 question, "why would they look the same?"
Go to your local big box store with the wall of TVs...which one is correct? Why is that one green, that one dark, and that one over saturated. (ok, they are probably all over saturated)
The "fix" is to use a properly calibrated broadcast monitor that does not care what OS platform you are using.
Once again, we need a sticky, or was offered in another question somewhere, a popup from blackmagic when no external hardware is detected. "Viewed color on a computer GUI are not intended to be accurate- calibrated external hardware is recommended"
