Hello!

I am experiencing an issue since version 15.0 (with latest NVIDIA driver 461.92 on Windows 10, RTX 3060 Ti GPU) concerning the video levels in MXF files.

Premiere 14.9: The waveform monitor shows a maximum level of 255 in the highlight region of the clip

Premiere 15.0: The waveform monitor (YC) shows a maximum level of 235 in the highlight region of the same clip.

In 14.9 I could recover the texture in the highlights (see the clouds next to the tower) when bringing down the RGB curve from 255 to 235. This is not possible in 15.0

This does not happen with mp4 format, only mxf

 

Any thoughts?

I want to add another example to show how Premiere 15.0 treats 8bit 4:2:0 footage in MXF container, in comparison to version 14.9.

15.0 cuts the highlights with no chance to recover any texture.

Since I am shooting mainly in 8bit 4:2:0 this is a reason not to use the newest version of Premiere.
