I am importing a new batch of JPEGS to an existing project. I have each of the files named individually. the first image imports and previews correct. However, every single image after that looks identical to the first in the preview, and does not look like the the actual JPEG that was imported.. I am fairly new to AE and needs assistance asap.
Use a different file format. there are issues with JPEGs in current AE versions.
I was already pulling my hair out. I changed the images to PNG and it solved the problem. It's a damn shame that such a problem exists in the first place
Interestingly this strange issue still is active - even in July 2021....!!!!
It is still not fixed. Arrrrr
Using PNGs is the solution for now.
The Problem is the embeded ICC Profile in the JPEG file.
Open your image using adobe Photoshop.
Then go to Edit > Assign Profile
in the Window dialog box, choose "Don't Color Manage This Document".
It will solve the problem
