When i import an image to Premiere Pro CC the colors get distorted, mainly the highligt and shadow areas. I capture my photos in RAW and then i edit them in Camera Raw (Photoshop). I save the photos as jpeg's and then import them into a project in Premiere Pro. When i do that this happends (SEE PICTURE). Exporting the file dosen't help either, the problem remains.

 

What is this ?!?!

That's typically something out of gamut.

 

Are you saving the images as sRGB files?

Saving the files as sRGB didn't solve the problem. Here's a screenshot of the settings i tried recently.

Using "Gray Gamma 1.8" or "Gray Gamma 2.2" makes the image black & white but solves the color distortion problem.

This totally fixes the problem I'm having (having the same issue) - funny how others on this thread didn't pay attention.

shooting straight into the sun is hard to do and get good tonality.

You got a couple things going on to figure out...

1) settings you should use for your camera raw files 

2) settings you should use for photoshop 'monitor' color space when saving the raw as jpg

3) settings to use in color correction in PPro ( luma value of white point )

 

good luck !

🙂

that image you posted is doomed. I put it into resolve and played around... but the blue and pixelation around sun etc. is baked into image and is doomed.... nothing can fix that.

 

😞

As a test, go to File > Project Settings > General and set the renderer to Software only.

Any difference?

I think you need to try bringing down the white point of that image in Photoshop if you can ... Levels or Curves, dropping the white point a bit. See if that's better. Not to get color back there, but those pixels are so far out they're going bizarre in Premiere.

 

Then ... bring down the White point in Lumetri's RGB Curve and see what it looks like ...

I think you have an issue with your gpu.

Update or roll back a driver.

The image shows fine on my machine.

Not overexposed at all.

Thanks for replying! The image i posted was a screenshot of the original picture and may have effected how your computer handled it. I can take the same file and load it into Premiere just fine without any issues. The problem still remains! 

 

I want to create a timelapse with the images i have taken. If i use Photoshop to do this it works just fine! I succesfully exported a sequence (H.264) with the tools available in PS (see the attached GIF-file). Why can photoshop handle these images but not Premiere?

This is the picture that comes out of Photoshop. Note that when i download the picture that i just uploaded in this post and put it into Premiere the problem goes away (WEIRD). Maybe there's some compression when uploading to this site.

 

This mean that you probably wont get the weird glitch/distortion with this picture even though it is the original.  ladda upp till adobe.JPGwtf wtf.PNG

Hi McSenderson,

 

Do you have the Video Limiter effect applied to the clip with Gamut warning enabled? That can cause this color overlay on the blown-out highlights.

this thread is going nowhere fast... IMO. You've been asked to upload the original image... that is the file that came OUT OF YOUR CAMERA. It will be a FILE with some kind of extension ... depending on what camera you used to make the RAW image.... 

 

do you know how to upload a file ???? There are various ways... like dropbox and google and so on.... cause you can't just drop a file into this forum directly... Figure it out and then someone can put THAT into their own programs ( photoshop or PPro or AE ) and solve your problem maybe...

 

🙂

This URL will take you to a google drive folder that contains the original picture. It also contains a screenshot with the settings used when saving that  jpeg.

good going on posting the raw thing. I have a quick question, and then I'm gonna say what happened with ME just so other people can know that later on. So good going.

Question: DID you ever try putting the raw image in question directly INTO Premiere pro ??  BEFORE doing stuff in photoshop ????

 

Thanks.

 

What happened to me. I downloaded raw image and put it into both resolve source material folder and desktop ( on junk laptop ).

I then downloaded and installed the sony raw file codec for that for WINDOWS 10 ( win 10 is latest, updated automatically thanks to stupid Microsoft ).

I opened a CS6 photoshop and couldn't open the file.

I opened a project in CS6 PPro and couldn't even SEE the filename listed in my directory or desktop.

I opened a project in Resolve and couldn't even SEE the filename listed in my directory or desktop.

 

I put it into media info and got nothin basically ( junk info )

I double clicked on the image on desktop and some PC windows photo 'viewer' opened and showed me the image. I looks like I'd expect it to... bright sun, much darker foreground. Nice shot. Bold ....is hard to shoot into sun.

 

Then I right clicked on the desktop thumbnail of image and chose 'properties' and got TONS OF INFO... dimensions, PPI, all sorts of cool info.

 

But I'm out of this as far as helping goes cause I can't open ( or even SEE ) the filename in PPro or Resolve.

 

🙂

good luck !!!    Hope you didn't meet any mean polar bears when taking that shot !
