I've been trying to edit videos in Premiere Pro and when I try to export it through media encoder or without it changes the colours totally. Even after exporting it changes the colours even more when downloaded to my computer. Premiere Pro itself changes the original footage to look different, but that is not even the biggest problem but the fact that I don't have any clue how the video will look when it's exported. For example, I was using text with the color orange but when exported it became bright red and the whole video was way too bright and the exposure was clearly over the top. This same issue happened with every 5 video that I had edited. I tried to download Premiere Pro again, but that didn't help either. Therefore, I am now clueless of what to do. Startin a new project won't help either and even after changing the original footage into rec.709 the same problem occurs. What can I do? It is frustrating because I have used a lot of time to edit all these videos and now I can't get them out looking normal.
Here are a couple of pictures to show visually what is going on...
Welcome to the Modern World! Where this is basic Color Management 101, a new requirement for users.
Ann's links will include the data you need. Essentially, three things must be aligned ...
And if they aren't, you get what you're getting.
Your clips are undoubtedly in HLG using the Rec.2100 color space, and can be used either "there" or in Rec.709's sRGB color space. BUT ... if you're going to use them in Rec.709 sequence and export, you need to use the Modify/Interpret footage right-click option in the Project panel to "Override-To" Rec.709.
Then use Rec.709 as the sequence color space, and a 'standard' export preset that does not have HLG or PQ in the preset name.
Biggest thank you, now I got it and all the videos are out and looking good - I am now also better at premiere pro so win-win!
