Hi everyone, my Nikon Z6 h264 footage has way too much contrast in Premiere CC.The blacks are so crushed and I can't lift them up. I have this now for several versions in Premiere cc.

In quicktime and vlc it looks good and I downloaded the fcpx trial and in there it looks also like it should be and I can even lift the blacks. 

 

(In after effects it also looks too contrasty)

 

-Transferring the material to Apple pro res 422 didn't help.

-I know about the Display Color Management button but that is not the solution.

Please help.

 

Sequence settings

3840 x 2160

Apple pro res 422

Thank you. I noticed that link, but sadly that doens't solve it. I don't mind that it looks dark in Premiere, but I do mind that I can't lift the blacks even if the information is there.

I'm wondering how your monitor is set. Color management being such a freaking mess, and the decision by Apple to not apply the second of two "required" transforms in the Rec.709 settings doesn't help.

 

It would be useful to see a screen grab of your Program monitor and your Scopes panel, with either RGB Parade or the Waveform in YC no chroma. And also, if you could upload a short sample clip to a dropbox type service and link to it so some of us could test on our machines that would be marvelous.
