5D2-files (H.264) changes color in FCP (ProRes)

It´s about a troublesome shift in color.
Attached is a screenshot from inside Final Cut, the project setup give us 1080psf25.

To the left is a PNG exported from the QTX-player and imported to the FCP project. To the right is the ProRes directly from inside the project.

The left one gives us the same colors as the H.264 looks like in the camera monitors (on screen and attached), and in all apps except the QT7-player with the "compatibility with FCP checked" and inside FCP. If we uncheck the compatibility the colors is about the same as in the QTX-player (and everywere else). All of this looks the same in the editing suite on the broadcast monitors (we use one Panasonic 1760 HDSDI to the IoHD and one Sony 20" HighRes SD componentconnected to the IoHD.



It seems to be a problem inside FCP. The question is; what can we trust when grading?


Thanks for being there..

Snow Leopard. And nothing changed with the very recent update to 10.6.7.
Even though it was said to have e few fixes in QuickTime.

Yes, well my son who now uses iMovie not FCP does not have the FCP problem for all his productions from the Canon 5D mark II and I have no problems with Premiere Pro , it may be a setting ? We also use 1920 x 1080p @ 25 fps PAL
