FCP7, problem importing jpgs
on Jul 29, 2016 at 12:55:45 pm

I'm importing jpgs into FCP7 and the colour is shifting (losing red/greenish cast)
They look perfect in the Finder but on importing to FCP the colour shifts dramatically (almost as if its been CMYK'd).
They were output from PS as Adobe RGB files.

I have rendered files. No difference.
I've tried fiddling with Gamma setting in Prefs. No difference.
I am not aware of 'switching on' any generic colour output in FCP that would cause this.

I cant seem to find any posts describing this problem or a fix, so advice gratefully very received! Thanks in advance.

Have you tried converting to sRGB? Also, try the export for web option and set it to PNG.

Answer: i discovered the issue after a protracted process of trial and error. It's the AdobeRGB v sRGB debate (which i was unaware of till now)

In my case, if I imported stills with an AdobeRGB colour profile they look washed out, with reduced reds and skin tones looking dull. If i then processed them with a sRGB profile they looked the same.

This is a simplified explanation of a complex issue. You can do the research but i thought this fix may help other people and save them days of hair tearing :)
