.braw Footage Looks Odd in New Premiere Update

Okay, so I've found a workaround for this issue, but I'm still curious if anyone has any idea why this is happening.

 

I edited a film shot in .braw last year using a previous version of Premiere Pro. It was in July 2022, so whatever version was out at that time. I recently opened the project again to do some new work. I hadn't touched the project in a long time, and since I'm now using Premiere V23.1, I had to convert the project. But when I looked at the footage, it all looked blue and desaturated. After some forum-scouring, I decided to try to download the V.22.0 of Premiere Pro and open the project file that way to see if that would solve the issue. But after V.22.0 downloaded, the color suddenly changed on the open project file in Premiere V23.1.

 

I tested this by deleting V.22.0, and sure enough, the color returned to being blue and desaturated. As soon as I redownloaded V.22.0, the color returned to normal. Any idea as to what's going on here? Clearly something is included in the V.22.0 download that is casuing this. Like I said, I can simply keep both versions installed while I edit, but I'm puzzled as to why this is happening.

 

To be clear, I'm seeing the color change happen on my converted project file in Premiere V.23.1. 

I suppose it's also worth noting that isntalling an older version of Premiere automatically installs an older version of Media Encoder., which in this case was V.22.6.3.

Yes, as Ann's links will tell you in many words ... they changed the underlying color system. Pr was hard-coded Rec.709. Period.

 

It is now "color space agnostic" ... and therefore all default behaviors have changed. You now need to rework the BRAW settings for those clips, so they are set to the Rec.709 color space. Or use the Modify/Intepret Footage context menu on the clip to set the Override-To option to Rec.709.
