Occasionally I shoot something on my phone that I want to integrate into a video, but I'm finding that FCPX 10.3.1 doesn't like the mp4's that my Nexus 5x phone generates. The phone footage will import into FCPX, with a red tint applied to everything. I've tried a couple of different camera apps on the phone, as well, with the same result. If I convert the footage in Compressor I can get something usable, but it's not ideal. Has anybody else run into this?
[James Cude]"Make sure in System Preferences, your Color Display profile is set to default. Then in FCPX, try changing the Color Space Override in the Settings view of the Inspector."
There are a lot of different profiles in the display settings. I'm not sure which is the default. I'm assuming for my LG Ultrawide monitor, it's the profile named LG ULTRAWIDE. I've played with the Color Space Override setting, but I don't see any changes in the mp4's. It seems to be a file compatibility issue.
I'm testing, by doing some transcoding of the Mp4's as I import into FCPX. Some of the clips seem to be OK. Others come in with the red cast, but appear to be fixed by changing the Color Space Override to Rec. 709. Unfortunately, the "fix" doesn't last and they revert back to having a red cast. Some just turn pink when I set them to Rec. 709. I had no issues with these files before FCPX 10.3.
