Exported videos are contrasty and blown out

Hello, I am using Premiere Pro version 23.1 (build 86) on a MacBook Pro. I am producing basic videos of interviews using single clips shot with an iPhone 14. The original clips look and sound very good on the phone as well as in my preview window in Premiere.

 

For the past week, every video I export is coming out with way too much contrast and blown-out highlights. The original clips look fine and I am not applying any corrections. I am doing the exact same thing that I have been doing for the past year which produced great results.

The export is set for High Quality 1080p HD and the format is H.264. I have attempted to clear all settings and restore defaults, but nothing has worked. I have searched for similar problems but haven't found a fix. 

 

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you for the reply, but I'm not sure that is my issue. The files look great on my phone, when viewed in Quicktime and in my Premiere timeline. The problem is that after it is exported the .mp4 is overly contrasty and blown out. I just want it to export like it looks off my phone and camera.

Actually, that problem is directly to do with the link provided.

 

You must set the color space for the file to match your working color space in the Interpret Footage dialog CM controls. As if the clip is as in this case, an HLG color space clip, Premiere will export that clip as HLG no matter the sequence or export settings.

 

So select one or more clips in the project panel/bin, right-click ... Modify/Intepret Footage, set the Override-To option to Rec.709.

 

Now redo the color work on the clip in the timeline, then it should export ok.

Color Workspace, Lumetri panel, Settings tab.

 

That's the place where all color management settings are grouped together.

Hey @R Neil Haugen , just checking to make sure. The instruction you usually give is for the 'Color Workspace' but that doesn't really affect anything other than insures the Lumetri panel is available, right?

FWIW: I always read these threads as I know you'll be explaining the color process, always informative. Thanks!

Got that, but the "Color Workspace" before it, is optional if you have the lumetri tab availble in whatever Premiere Workspace you are in...

The update in the description for the video solved this issue for me:

You can fix this much easier in (Premiere Pro version) 23.4 or newer, by just going to Sequence Settings, setting your timeline to Rec709 Color Space, and tix the box to Auto-Tone Mapping.
