Color shift when exporting ProRes 422
by Matt Burns on Apr 17, 2013 at 8:54:32 pm
when I export out a comp from AE CS6 that contains all GFX no video I get a color shift, what looks like a gamma shift. When I export out the comp as Animation the colors are the way they should be in FCP 7 but when I export out ProRes 422 everything gets darker. Any way to fix this.

color space is 32bit, color profile is set to none and AE version is 11.0.2.
well looking at the QTs in finder the Animation and the ProRes 422 both look the same but when I bring them in to FCP 7 and put them on a ProRes 422 timeline the ProRes 422 timeline tuns the ProRes file darker but Animation QT is normal just like in AE, but when I put the Animation QT on a Animation timeline it turns the Animation QT darker just like the ProRes file and timeline.
Unfortunately QT has some issues displaying the color. I do not use FCP so I can't help you much there.
One thing I do is to make sure that when I render out of AE a 32 bit project I do not linearize the color space.
It seems to me that if you see the color as it should be in QT then it may be a FCP issue. Try using a Rec 709 color profile in AE.
