any thoughts on why Media100 makes the .Mov from DJI inspire and osmo go very dark on import?

Could be a color space issue. While inputting try selecting the "scale out of Range RGB values" in the input menu that pops up. That may do the trick.

Hello Norman,

There is actually a known issue with Media 100 where the video appears darker than the source footage - This is, however, a Playback bug rather than an Import bug, so what you try quickly is, right after Importing, try Exporting again and opening this new Export in Quicktime Player. If it's the same IRE/Brightness-Contrast as the original file, then it would appear that what you're seeing is actually the playback bug, in which case the video itself is being accurately imported and processed by Media 100, and any exports you make once your project is done should be correct again.

If the export is showing the clips as being darker than originally, then this would indeed suggest an Import problem, in which case I might recommend possibly trying different codec options when importing.

Thanks,

Jon

If the colour range is set to Video 16-235 when importing then try switching to Computer 0-255. Or the other way around.

With "16-235", your reference black is 16,16,16 (not 0,0,0) and reference white is 235,235,235 (not 255,255,255).

If you are unsure, do a test imports of one clip, first with one colour range setting and then with the other.
