Premiere Pro export very undersaturated, low contrast when exporting with Media Encoder vs Premiere

I have been searching many forums, and found many people having the same problem - but I couldn't seem to find a solution.

When exporting a Premiere Pro file (to H.264) I get completely different results when using Media encoder vs exporting directly from Premiere. When using media encoder, the results are horribly undersaturated, and do not match what I did in premiere at all.





Now most people have said its a quicktime player issue, but its not. While the players have slightly different results, they are both way off when comparing the Media Encoder export to what I had in Premiere:



Other forums said it may be an issue with the iMac I have? Or possibly the graphics card?

What is the wrapper/codec/bitrate of your original footage?

I am curious, noting that although you have a variable bitrate selected for your output, you also have both the target and max bitrate at 8MBps. Why not simply do a fixed bitrate?

System:
Dell Precision T7600 (x2)
Win 7 64-bit
32GB RAM
Adobe CC 2015.02 (as of 6/2016)
256GB SSD system drive
4 internal media drives RAID 5
Typically cutting short form from HD MP4 and P2 MXF.

If your monitor is not color calibrated to srgb, nothing will look right as premiere
is hard coded to srgb and will ignore any color profile on your monitor.

You can use transform luts from p3 or adobe rgb to srgb with lumetri. Also,
Set vlc to opengl video to match opengl driver gamma in premiere. Quicktime
Uses direct drivers with 16-235 pixels which changes the gamma.

Chris' suggestion to set vlc to opengl video is what fixed the problem for me.
