Hi,

 

I've encountered an issue and haven't yet been able to find a way around it. When importing .mxf footage from a Canon C300 Mk II, there is immediately color banding that appears, and no matter what export codec I use it then appears in the outputted file. 

 

I have a fully edited sequence that is being sent to grade (I normally send a flattened Quicktime at maximum depth to the colorist) but he is seeing this banding appear on these shots in the file. But when he imports the original media file (.mxf from the camera) straight into Da Vinci Resolve, there is no issues with banding. 

 

This signals to me that the issue is occuring through Premiere as soon as the file is imported. I have also tried transcoding the original media to quicktime before importing and the same issue occurs. 

 

Currently working on Premiere 14.9 - seeing as the latest update has its own issues with the blue skin glitch. 

 

Any help appreciated!
