When I open the .mxf files in Permiere 14.3, they are blown out and nuclear like some horrible LUT has been burned into the footage, but when I examine the files through Resolve, the media is desaturated s-log files as they are supposed to be. Anyone have an idea as to why? We shot on a Sony f55 and the codec is X-OCN ST. This is how Premiere imports the .mxf file
This is due to the completely new underlying color system of Pr2022, and that it is not um ... fully and properly "cooked" yet. Understand ... all HDR forms are log-encoded, but some log-encoded media is SDR/Rec.709. Such as your clips.
Premiere gets confused with some log-encoded media, assuming it is HLG, and displays it as such. For clips doing this, go into the project panel bin, right-click/Modify/Interpret Footage, and set it to Override to Rec.709. For some cameras, they even have a profile available now.
There are a few cameras where it insists on displaying the log-encoded SDR/Rec.709 media as HDR, but doesn't allow for an override action ... and that's very problematic. It's acknowledged for some time now, and I'm hoping that promised fix actually gets to us soon.
I'm including links to a couple FAQs on this forum. The first covers the changes to color in Pr2022, how to work with the new system, and what's broken at this time. The second is how to monitor in HDR in Pr2022, which has also changed significantly from the previous version.
