2 camera shoot.
A Cam and B Cam both graded with the same LUT, looks good in PP22, but on export A Cam is bright orange.
Never had this issue before switching to PP22. Happening across multiple sequences using the same footage
See images attached
Any clues? Of course Im on a deadline
Export to media encoder- total export time 4 mins per video, issue: CAM A is orange
Export from PP directly - total export time 70 mins per video, colours are all correct
I dont understand why media encoder is interpreting the grade differently to PP export (export settings match)
Copy link to clipboard
One camera was either shooting log which Pr2022 is 'seeing' as an HLG clip (HDR), or was shot in HLG and Pr is seeing it 'correctly' in that color space.
Anyway ... you need to go to the Project panel, select that clip, right-click/Modify/Interpret Footage, and set the Override option at the bottom to Rec.709.
They are both Rec.709 already. I dont think thats the issue.
Im really starting to hate PP. Been using it for 10 years now but this hassle when I have deadlines is costly!
Why is it taking 30 mins to export a 4 min video with the right colours from PP
Why is it only 4 mins in encoder but one cam is ORANGE when I do.
Im actually getting angry
So I went to interpret footage and set them both to Rec709 even though it says they both already were just to see and its working now. Thats very confusing as you dont think there is an issue if its already showing it
I WOULD LIKE TO ADD A RECOMMENDATION TO ADOBE
When importing footage, it would be good to be asked the question do you want to interpret as rec 709 at that time
In the Public beta, they have a new option in Sequence CM settings, "auto-tonemap". It takes any HDR clip on an SDR sequence and tonemaps to the Rec.709 space.
You should install the beta ... you can install it alongside the regular versions ... and test that out.
Yeah right - or how about Adobe stops releasing half baked updates with loads of issues!
This has messed up everyones workflows and literally no documentation has been released to support people!
Do you have the power to feed up things BTW? Its so frustrating!
Im not sure I have time for the beta - Im sure it will have scores of other issues whilst fixing one
Join the choir ...
In talking with some of the staffers at NAB last month, I of course hit on the massive changes to color handling/defaults/management with a rather low level of documentation, the new color management controls being splayed in different places across the app instead of one easily findable place, and yea, rolling out things piecemeal.
The answer ... well, that person would have preferred to give more data but up the line, it was felt that would be too confusing to users.
Well ... the devs are actually pretty low in the Adobesphere. A huge chunk of Adobe is the "M&E" ... marketing & experience ... staffers. Who do testing of reactions from users on various concepts, study their metrics tea leaves on user use of various program tools ... and from it all, basically tell the devs what to do.
So my guess is the M&E folks were the ones telling the devs not to go into too much "deep" detail because they felt we'd all be confused ... which is about as bizarre as you can get.
