I'm having a little problem which I'm hoping someone knows how to solve that doesn't take forever.
So I'm working with 4k XAVC-I footage from a Sony FS7. I realized it was too heavy for for my computer to handle in Premiere so I had to make proxies. I used EditReady and while I did that I removed the sound since there is no recorded sound on the clips. This took like 24 hours or something (insane).
Then I imported my XAVC-I footage into Premiere and and linked it to my new prores proxies (1080 & 2k). This didn't work since the original files have audio tracks and the proxy clips doesn't. Very annoying.
So I took all my original XAVC clips and just rewrapped them without sound to .mov. This worked and the proxies linked just fine!
The problem now however is that the rewrapped original footage looks a lot darker than my proxys (the proxys look right) inside Premiere when switching from original footage to proxy. Very strange. Anyone know why this is and how to fix it?
