PNG import color quality

So I'm creating a bunch of motion templates for use in FCP. I'm designing everything in motion, but some elements I'm exporting to photoshop for some work and then reimporting into motion. When I reimport the PNG's the colors are faded and not as vibrant.

Is there a setting somewhere I may be missing that corrects this?



The top orange bar is the PNG I reimported. All I did was add an alpha gradient in photoshop based on the original orange bar. It's subtle, but it's not retaining that vibrancy.

it was a gamma issue. Added a gamma filter in motion to the re-imported object and adjusted to taste.
