QT Display vs. FCP Display Issue
on Jul 3, 2012 at 3:51:24 pm

Hi all,

I am a cinematographer, not knowing much about Final Cut Pro, but I have a weird problem, hoping someone can help out.

Shot this project on Sony F3 with the NanoFlash box, so you get ProRes 4-2-2 (in .mov format). Everything plays fine in Quicktime in terms of brightness and color.

But once I get it into Final Cut Pro (ver 7.0), ALL the videos turned extremely DARK. Some to the point where I cannot see them.
I figured it's got nothing to do with the monitor calibration since it looks fine in QT. There's got to be something I am not doing right in FCP.

Has anyone run into this problem before? I made sure the settings are running according to what the files are natively. What am I doing wrong?

Please see the two comparison with the link provided. The brighter one is from QT and darker one is from FCP. I have NOT done anything for adjustments.

FCP vs. QT

Many thanks in advance!
