Premiere to Resolve workflow: colors are coming back washed out?
on Jun 14, 2017 at 12:33:59 am

I created a final cut pro XML from Premiere 2015 and brought it into Resolve 12.5. I colored everything and on export (Avid AAF; I'm exprting this because premiere xml keeps crashing). When I brought it into Premiere, the footage literally was not colored. Everything was washed out. Tomorrow morning is my deadline and it is a HUGE project and I can't deliver this late. Is something wrong with my export settings? I exported MXF OP-Arom DNxHR 444. What am I doing wrong???

I know it is a little late, but DNxHR 444 is an RGB codec. All the other DnxHR settings are REC 709. Adobe products are expecting 709 video levels from DNxHR, so it is putting your blacks to 16 and your whites to 235, out of the RGB scale of 0-235. You should be using DNxHR HQX, which is a 10 bit 709 codec. Then all will be good. I thought there was a tool to do this conversion in Premiere, but I don't see it. In AE, I believe you can change this under "Interpret Footage".

How did you solve this problem? Your answer would be helpful for others.
