Desaturated Footage inside Timeline

I have this project that I haven't opened in a couple of weeks. 

It's primarily iPhone footage (MOVs native from the phone, haven't been transcoded at all) and AE Alpha graphics. 

I had an adjustment layer over all my footage so I've actually never added any lumetri color to any of these clips. 

 

The problem is all the color from my files has suddenly been desaturated and blown out.

It looks the same way on and off the timeline.

However, the original footage looks normal. 

So I'm unsure where the problem is. 

There are zero effects on the clip, zero on timeline, and the nspector window looks the same way. 

 

Opening this project today, I had to convert it to match the new version of Premiere, which is the only thing I can think may have caused this. 

I'm also on an M1 Mac mini.

The footage has the same problem whether on the Silicon Version or the Intel version. 

None of my other projects have this issue. 

 

I haven't changed anything but perhaps something was changed without my knowing. 

Maybe a color profile? But I don't see it. 

Maybe the way the footage is interpreted? Though why only this project? 

Maybe the iPhone video should be transcoded to ProRes first? But those files are so much bigger. 

 

Should I create a new project and just import all the footage over again? 

Import a sequence as well? 

I'm not sure if I've ever done that, I feel like I'd lose so much progress.

 

I have images attached. You can see the difference in how the footage appears in Premiere and how it appears in the Finder Window. 

 

Thank you!

Hi dannyb97776087,

 

Sorry about the poor experience. Please try these steps & check if it helps.

  • Right-click on the media file in the Project panel.
  • Select Modify > Interpret Footage.
  • Under Color Management, set Color Space Override to Rec. 709 & click OK.

Let us know if restores the correct preview.

 

Thanks,

Sumeet

Okay so it worked but not once I export. 

I'm getting the desaturated look now upon my export. 

Everything looks great on the timeline and in even in the export window. 

I'm exporting Quicktime, AppleProRes422. 

I have before/After photos of the footage. I'm losing color on the export. 

 

Of the examples here, some footag I Modified and Interpreted to override at Rec709 on some, but others I did not, and the same problem is happening.

 

Thank you, 

-D

 This could be several things. First, if it's Rec.709, I would not expect identical images between within Premiere and not on a Mac, actually. If the Mac's ColorSync uitility is involved, it is not designed to apply correct color managment to Rec.709 files.

 

Next ... if it's some form of HLG HDR media, then how you export is very crucial to getting the the right metadat in the file for players outside of Premiere. One tiny little slip-up and it will look off.
