ProRes prerender colour management

Hi. I like to prerender comps as ProRes on my Mac. When I import the prerenders I always have to go to Interpret Footage and tick Preserve RGB, as AE seems to automatically assume the Rec.709 colour profile, buggering the colours. My goal is to be able to prerender as ProRes and have the colours work properly automatically when I import the footage.

 

I think ProRes does not support embedded colour profiles? When I render as ProRes, in Colour Management there is the option to either render with an output profile or preserve RGB.

 

Thanks!

This is some sort of weird bug/ misbehavior that has plagued AE for several versions. Short of customizing the default footage interpretation rules to enforce pRGB I cannot think of a way to handle this and even then it may not work, as this also seems to have some odd bug where custom rules don't seem to be honored as discussed here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects-discussions/change-interpretation-rules-for-footage/td-.... So I guess you're stuck between a rock and a hard place and have to rely on manually setting those options.

This is so insane. On a Mac, if I pre-render using After Effect's default presets, the imported ProRes file comes in with a colour shift!? There must be a way around this?!
