Lighting/color goes wonky when trying to export to MP4 format?

I've been using Adobe Premiere Pro for years now and have no issues.

Recently, however, I think I must have accidentally changed some kind of setting, because I seem to be unable to export edited .MOV video footage to MP4 format without the lighting/color distorting (SEE VIDEO EXAMPLE AT https://youtu.be/eSjMJJk-uVQ). Notice how the video is WAY over-exposed during the export preview? I've tried going through the export process and it's like that the whole way through.

This only seems to happen when I import a video I record on my iPhone (iPhone 13 Pro), import and edit, add some text & graphics, then try to export in a format that I can post on social media. 

 

Any advice appreciated, thanks!

My first comment is you are clearly on a Mac ... and you do not have the Preference/General option for "Display color management" selected. That is advisable for all users with uncertain monitor calibration or setups, but is basically required for all Mac users. Due to Apple's unfortunate choice to mis-apply the Rec.709 video standards.

 

Next ... yes, there are major changes in the color management options and default behaviors. The links that Ann listed are good.

 

I also wrote a rather lengthy but precise FAQ for this forum listing the changes, the old behaviors, the new behaviors, the new color management options and how to use them. It covers pretty much the issues that so many are having at the moment.

I did find the Video Rendering and Playback setting, and have chosen the Recommended setting. Was this not correct?

Metal would be the one for a Mac ... but the DCM option being grayed out ... that's odd. I've never heard of that happening before.

 

Reset the workspace ... see if it's available? That shouldn't be grayed out.

Thanks, Neil. I reset the workspace and you were right - I WAS able to enable Display Color Management this time. I started going through the instructions on your wonderfully detailed post, but the user interface describe seems to apply to the Windows version. Would you happen to know of a similar article, but for Mac? Anne's links also seem to apply to the Windows version, I think.

Example: Right-clicking on a clip does not give me an option to Interpret Footage. I see the "Interpret Footage" when I highlight the clip and look at the Dropdown menu under Clip, but it's grayed out.

I quit and restarted Premiere, imported the same raw .MOV file from my iPhone, and now the clip looks blown out. Before it looked normal BUT when I exported, it looked blown out.

 

I never had this issue with the previous version of Premiere Pro, am thinking of figuring out a way of going back to that version.

Thanks for trying to help, though!

Reinstalled Premiere Pro 2021, and problem was fixed. I think I'm going to stick with this version for now, until the color issue is sorted out - from what I see online, there are quite a few people who are having similar issues.

Thank you again to both of you for trying to help!

Modify/Interpret Footage has been the only option I've seen here, and many users posting here are of course on Macs.

 

You don't have an option anywhere to Modify the image? The "interpret" is always listed after the Modify in any discussion I've ever seen. But I'm not highly experienced on a Mac.

This is an OLD AND ANCIENT thread. Premiere 2024/24.x color managment is vastly different, with more options choices and fixes available.

 

Read up on the newer threads.
