I am returning to a project I shot on P2 and have problems with the image that I never managed to resolve.
The image always comes out as if the gain has been turned up on all of it, with muddy blacks and colours.
I can't work out what the source of this problem is. Here are my settings:
Raster Type: Standard
Project Type: 1080i
MEDIA CREATION> IMPORT:
I have tried both DNxHD 120 MXF & DVCPro HD MXF
IMPORT SETTINGS- IMAGE:
Field Ordering in File:
File Pixel to Video Mapping:
Computer RGB, dither image colours and 601 SD or 709 HD
Invert on Import
I have made the discovery that if i export the video as 'Same as Source' and tick the 'Use Avid DV Codec' with colour level RGB, it comes out close to the original.
A had the same result with the Apple ProRes 422 codec.
This leads me to believe it may just be a displaying problem, but I can't tell.
Does anyone have any suggestions about what to try?
