Text or graphic overlay changes the contrast of footage underneath it when exported.

After rendering a project, I noticed that certain sections of clips would suddenly jump drastically in contrast.

I figured out that this happens whenever I have added text or a graphic overlay of some kind. 

 

I have attached an example video of what I mean. All I've done here is add text onto a video.

 

 

The footage seems to be exported with slightly more contrast than it has in the monitor in premiere and then when text/graphics appear it suddenly looks more washed out.

 

Is this a render setting? A project renderer problem? Something to do with the color space? HELP

Try to go to Sequence > Sequence Settings and un-check "Composite in Linear Color...", click OK and try to export again and report back. 🙂

I seem to be having the exact problem.  Did the un-check "Composite in Linear Color" but had no impact.

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

@alexc34813552 I've tried all the above suggested solutions and in the end the only thing that works for me is to render the video with "Software Encoding" selected in the Performance section of the export settings. 

You can still edit the video using GPU acceleration but when you render the video, try selecting "Software Encoding"

 

Seems like a ridiculous workaround but thats adobe for ya- hope this helps.
