Can someone please explain to me why this happens. I'm sure it has something to do with color spaces / settings which are the bane of my existence.
In Premiere Pro (Windows 10, Premiere 2020 V 2..3.0) I want to make a COLOR MATTE that matches a color in my imported video.
This video may be a MOV file exported from Animate, or an MP4 file provided by clients, etc. etc.
I create a new Color Matte, set the size etc. When the Color Picker dialog appears, I use the eyedropper to sample the color from the area of the video I want to match.
Premiere creates a Color Matte. But, when I place this color matte on top of my original video, the matte doesn't match the underlying color. It's *close* but slightly off.
For example, the color of the original video is #CDCFC4. The Color Matte *says* it is #CDCFC4. *BUT* the new color matte displays onscreen as #CACCD2.
The color of the original video is #EA7100. The Color Matte *says* it is #EA7100. *BUT* the new color matte displays onscreen as #E96900.
Even the color picker in Premiere identifies the color as #E96900 while the Color Matte continues to insist that it is set to #EA7100.
