A common issue I've seen here. When exporting a sequence from premiere the color shifts dramatically in the majority of playback programs. Quicktime, Vimeo, Youtube etc. VLC works fine but not everybody is using VLC. Makes for lots of wasted time on color grades.

 

Comments from Adobe below

This is an issue we (Adobe) are aware of. The best desciption of this issue is in this article and the related video:

A feature for handling this issue - adjustable Viewer Gamma - has been added to Premiere Pro v24 and is explained in this documentation: https://community.adobe.com/t5/premiere-pro-ideas/quicktime-gamma-shift-prevent-color-shift-on-expor....

Yup. It's actually totally because of Apple choosing to be so Apple, and do their own thing different from everyone else.

 

I don't really care which is used, like most, I just want one SINGLE standard used! 

 

Ah well ... we aren't getting that anytime soon. A couple noted colorists I've listened to even have "connections" in Cupertino, and mentioned this ... and got total stone-wall. Wow.

 

So VLC can actually be handy, in a practical sense. Look at something in QuickTime player, and in VLC. When you get to a usable image in both, well, you've probably got something ... well, useful across platforms, eh?
