Color Fade After Exporting From Premiere Pro

Could someone lend me a hand? I'm puzzled by the fact that my videos aren't retaining their vibrant colors during the export process. You can refer to the attached image for clarity. The left side shows the exported version, while the right side displays the Premiere Pro editing file. I would greatly appreciate assistance in configuring the appropriate export settings. For your information, I use Media Encoder to export.

My guess is you are on a Mac ... and if so, then it's because the Mac uses gamma 1.96 to display Rec.709/SDR video, while everyone else on the planet uses the broadcast standard of gamma 2.4 to display Rec.709 video.

 

Premiere follows the b-cast standards. Anything that Apple's ColorSync utility controls on a Mac, will use the Apple 1.96 gamma.

Thank you for getting back to me, Neil. I'm currently using a Mac, and getting a new computer isn't an option for me right now. Could you possibly suggest some potential solutions, whether they involve adjusting settings or other approaches? Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

First, this isn't an issue with the files out of Premiere. It's simply how the file is displayed ... 

 

So you might try using VLC player on your Mac ... and probably, will see the file the same or pretty close to within Premiere. Because VLC doesn't normally allow ColorSync to control color management.

 

Or if your Mac display has the option for HDTV, use that rather than Rec.709 ... and you'll get the display using the normal Rec.709 gamma 2.4.

 

So on some Macs, if they've got the HDTV option set, they'll see the 'correct' Rec.709 view that you saw in Premiere. Others ... won't.

 

And there's nothing you can do about that, as Apple is the cause of the trouble. By using a non-standard display gamma.

 

I work for/with/teach pro colorists. Most of them total Mac geeks, and they are FURIOUS with Apple over this.

 

Because not even a colorist has any control over any other screen but that which they grade on.

 

And ... every other screen out there will never show exactly what they saw while grading.
