I've been facing some issues after importing the footage into my Premiere Pro 22.6.2.
The footage imported to Premiere looks over exposed and less saturated, as you can see on the print below.
Please see below the info from the original footage:

I need some help! Please!
Thanks in advance! 😉
Just exported the original footage with the Adobe correction LUT (QT Gamma Compensation.cube) and no additional color correction. Please see the result below:
Please compare with the original footage below:
Hi Ann! Thanks for your reply!
I've followed the steps on the Karl Soule's video for fixing the colors on Premiere but it didn't work.
Please see the printscreens of my Premiere below:
But actually, I see the issue before puting it into my timeline. The footege looks different in the preview monitor as you can see below. The image between the two monitors in Premiere is the original footage:
Why not set everything to the original color management format.
May I ask you how to do that?
Sorry for bugging you Ann, but I need some help for fixing this issue! 😉
Clip, sequence setting and export settings all the same color management.
Ann, I've tried to do that, but...
Below you can see my clip's color profile (BT.2020 HLG) from an iPhone 13:
Here are my sequence settings (once I don't have the 2020 HLG option I've left the 2100 HLG instead):
And when I import a clip to my preview/timeline I see already the issue (the clip color looks different from the source):
Here are my exporting settings (I don't have an option for changing the color profile here):
And here is the exported version, without any color correction, compared with the source:
You're working color space is set to Rec. 2100 HLG in the Sequence Settings. To match that on the export settings, you need to uncheck the checkbox next to Profile, select High10, and set the export color space to Rec 2100 HLG.

Do you mind sharing a clip or two with us so we can try to recreate the issue and see how we can help you solve this?
Help us help you.
Just tried to upload a video and I got a message saying that I cannot share videos here, so I've put two clips in a folder on Google Drive:
Apoligies ... I didn't read all the fine print as well as I should have yesterday.
Ishan is right mostly ... the issue is you used a 'standard' SDR export preset. You can modify that to HLG, but it is normally both faster and 'safer' to use the HLG presets they've included for HLG exports as that way ALL the proper things are set.
So use an HLG export preset for HLG sequences.
Thanks in advance for your help!
Correct me if I'm wrong and apologize me if I'm saying something stupid, but looks like the issue is when I import the files, because even before puting it into a timeline the colors looks tottaly diferent in the preview monitor.
I've never had faced this king of color issue when uploading footage from my Canon DSLR cameras. It has started now when I'm using files from an iPhone.
That is the result of your iPhone shooting in hdr mode and your canon regular Rec 709.
Richard is spot-on. You're using HLG files mixed with SDR files, which can at times be challenging for professional colorists if trying to then work in an HLG space.
The Rec.709 dynamic range and color volume are much, much smaller than HLG. And it is very difficult to "push" much Rec.709 media into HLG successfully. If it's log-encoded and 10 bit, probably. Straight SDR 10 bit or 8 bit video media ... not so much.
It is far easier to work by using the Override to Rec.709 on the HLG clips in the Project panel, and working in a Rec.709 sequence, exporting to Rec.709.
Hey Neil, sorry if I've not explained correctly: In this project I'm not mixing files from DSLR and iPhone. I'm using files from the iPhone only. I just commented that, in previous projects, I've never had this color issue using the files from the DSLRs.
So, once I'm using the HLG files from the iPhone only, what should I do for importing it correctly into Premiere?
Then you can either set the iPhone to Rec.709 ... as they tend to default to HLG ... and work with regular Rec.709 sequences, which is easiest.
Or ... you can select one or more clips in the project panel, right-click/Modify/Interpret Footage, setting the Override option to Rec.709, and use on a sequence with Rec.709 color space settings in the Sequence settings dialog.
Or ... you can work in HLG by making sure your sequence setting is set for working in HLG, that your OS and monitor are set for HLG, and then export in HLG using an HLG preset.
Thanks again Neil! 😉
