What are your full color management settings, and show the entire Settings tab of the Lumetri panel please.

 

As they are crucial to sorting out your CM issue.

Actually the first post had the Settings tab ... the color management settings ... that I needed to see. 

 

Ok ... that's a mess ...

 

First, set Display Color Managemet to on, and as you're on a Mac, Extended Dynamic range also.

 

Next, auto detect log to on. And make sure that auto-tonemap is on down farther in the Sequence settings (as it is in your grab).

 

Now ... to display gamma settings. You're on a Mac, so you essentially have three poison choices. Seriously. As Macs without reference modes use in incorrect display transform for Rec.709 media.

 

So .... the choices (and problems) are:

 

QuickTime/gamma 1.96

This matches the display transform in Premiere to the same odd one used by most Mac Retina monitors. So what you see in QuickTime Player and Chrome/Safari browsers is alike to within Premiere. Though VLC will show the image lighter.

 

(As you are working in a 'brighter' shadow display than normal Rec.709, you'll make the image lighter ... and when shown on nearly all non-Macs, it's too dark and over-saturated. Which is much of The World of course.)

 

Web/gamma 2.2

 

This is chosen by some as supposedly the Web is gamma 2.2, though a ton of monitors just are set for Rec.709/2.4 anyway.  This way the image you create will look a bit lighter, on most Macs than in Premiere on yours, and within "normal" range on most other screens. Chosen by a number of people, including some colorists I know, as a "compromise".

 

Broadcast/gamma 2.4

 

This is the 'standard' for the creation of Rec.709 video, and is used by nearly all colorists for all their Rec.709 outputs. It will look ... on any screen, relative to other pro produced media on that screen ... like other pro produced media. As all pro media is produced at 2.4. 

 

(And of course, will be lighter and slightly desaturated on Macs without reference modes. But ... this is the same as all other pro produced media.)

 

Your choice.

 

Exports

 

Make sure that all export presets match the color space/dynamic range of the sequence.

 

Rec.709 sequences must not be used with export presets with either HLG or PQ in the preset name. 

 

HLG and PQ sequences must be used with matching HLG or PQ presets.

Thanks so much @R Neil Haugen  for sharing all this insformation. it is helping a lot

I missed to mention that I am not using a retina display. It is a samsung display  - Samsung LS28AG700NWXXL

SAMSUNG Odyssey G7 28 inch UHD IPS Panel

With naything other than Broadcast gamma 2.4, the rendering window is too white, so I stuck to that

For video, set that monitor to its Rec.709 setting, unless of course, you are working in HLG or PQ.

 

Rec.709 uses sRGB as the color primaries ... but also has a screen transform for tonal (brightness) values. It is the video standard for SDR video, as sRGB is for typical 8 bit digital stills.

 

The Mac OS color management utility ColorSync is set to use an odd transform ... the camera transform! ... as the display transform. It will do so on any monitor connected to the computer, unless it's one of the newer Mac monitors with "reference modes". On which you can set "HDTV" and it will give proper Rec.709 transforms.

 

So I would expect your monitor is getting fed the odd transform outside of Premiere on anything but VLC player and Firefox browser. Which complicates matters.

 

Of course, you haven't mentioned having done any calibration of the monitor with a puck/software system like the i1 Pro system. No monitor outta the factory is trustworthy in my view, no matter the fancy certificates they provide. My BenQ PD2720U came with a pretty Rec.709 certificate. Right.

 

On initial setup/testing, running a profile (to check the calibration, not change it) ... it was running at over 200 nits brightness (not the standards 100 nits), the white point was well too high, and the black point was way high. Naturally, color response was off whack also.
