We have a slight problem at work.
We rendered some compositions to ProRes 422 HQ last week, and today we opened up the same project to render some more compositions.
When the renders was done we realized that the gamma of the new renders seemed off compared to the old ones.
When we look at the old renders they are reported as: ProRes 442 HQ HDTV (Rec.709) Y CbCr.
And the new renders are reported as: ProRes 442 HQ Rec.709 Gamma 2.4 Y CbCr.
Both renders where rendered from the frame After Effects project, using the default ProRes 422 HQ preset in Media Encoder.
I and my colleagues have looked through the settings in AE and Media Encoder numerus times, but we can't find any differences between then and now.
What we have tried so far:
-Render it on different computers(Win 10 x64 Ryzen 1900X RTX 2080 TI, Win10 x64 i7 6800k GTX 1080 TI and a Mac Pro 2016 with latest MacOS.
-Render with and without GPU acceleration
-Render with and without "Render at Maximumn Depth"
-Render it directly in AE using the 422 HQ preset.
We havn't made any manual updates to either After Effects nor Media Encoder sine the last render.
Do any of you know what we might have done to get the different profiles in Media Encoder/After Effects?
