Hello everyone - I am new to the forum and I have a problem I need help with... Here is the situation.


I am using Premiere Pro CS5.5 (verison 5.5.0) on a Mac OSX 10.7.3 - I am using AVCHD footage from a Panasonic GH2.  The footage looks fantastic until I use color correction from the Three way color corrector or RGB Curve adjustments.  I apply the effects to taste and then encode them with the following settings:


Codec: MainConcept H.264 Video


FPS 23.976

Widescreen 16:9

Profile: Main

Level: 4.2

Render at Maximum Depth - Checked

VBR, 1 Pass

Target Bitrate 32

Maximum 40

Use Maximum Render Quality - Checked

Multiplexing: MP4

Steam Compatibility: Standard


NOTE - The green is NOT there when I take off the effects and render the same clip.

Please help me anyway you can!  Thank you and I will be glad to give any more information needed.  As a side note:  I rendered a new verison with the Profile set to "High" and the Level set to 5.1, but it did not help, it just made the green not as bright.  I have to be honest in saying that I don't know what those settings mean - Sorry!


Thank you so much!

    Hi Brian, think we could  get a copy of the source clips  you're seeing the green blocking on?  Would like to see if we can reproduce this in-house.  Email me offline and I'll send you the FTP upload info.
