Hey, I often try to find solutions to my Premier Pro problems on YouTube. But for some reason, my YouTube quest for answers is simply not working.


I've been having this issue with the colors in Premiere Pro. A little bit of background on my setup: I use a Sony ZV1 and oftentimes an iPhone to shoot footage. The issue that I'm talking about specifically now, though, deals with the Sony ZV1 camera. I use the auto setting mainly when using this camera for video. For some reason, the colors look different for my footage when I look at it in QuickTime versus when I look at it in Premiere Pro. Everything is fine in QuickTime, but the second i drag the footage into my Premiere timeline, the colors change slightly. In Premiere Pro, the colors are darker and look a little bit off. I believe the highlights are skewed aswell. For some reason, they don't look exactly like QuickTime. This forces me to color-correct every single time, and it's quite irritating. I just want my footage to look like it does in QuickTime. Other editing software, like Final Cut, doesn't give me this issue. I have tried everything under the sun, from changing color spaces to turning on color management. Nothing seems to solve the problem.


Do any of you know how to solve this problem? The colors are just off, man. If you can help me solve the problem, it will be greatly appreciated.


In this screenshot attached, the left is what the video looks like in quicktime. On the right is what the video looks like on my premiere timeline.
