Color shift Nightmare!!
on Sep 9, 2014 at 9:11:01 pm

Been spending the day looking into compression settings for fcp7 to MP4. During this process I've noticed significant color shift between applications, formats, etc.

I've attached a screen shot showing the differences.

Left=QT FCP Export
Center Left=Mp4 Export thru Mpeg Streamclip
Center Right=Brand Standards Guide (What the color is supposed to be)
Right=FCP Canvas

All these are off the same original file made in Photoshop Using R0, G84, B103 What the DARN!

Thanks in advance.

So its pretty close in all exports...not sure if there is a setting I'm missing but when I export to MP4 it turns colors completely...

Mainly the issue is marketing want it the same color. I explained to them the difference in colors in computer variations and they kind of understand that. I am just being driven nuts by the fact that it's a different color per application and format on the SAME SCREEN!!... Hoping there is something I can do to prevent that..

Thanks again

There are no standards in place so each player has it's own implementation.

As a side note re. making mp4... don't use Compressor v3 that comes with FCP7 - it's out of date compared to Compressor v4 and onwards - the free Handbrake app is 64-bit and up-to-date.
