Also, with what you are reporting, please let us know where you are seeing this desaturation, such as Apple QT Player, VLC, etc.
I'm working on a I MAC 27" and the operating system is Mac OS X version 10.7.5 and I'm currently using Premier Pro CS6. I've tried exporting my files in H.264 and Mpeg2 and both of does are sitting giving me the same outcome. I use quicktime to view the footage. No matter what i do or how high i bump up the quality, the footage still look less saturated and faded than the footage in the program. Can you please give me some tips on how to get my colors to be accurate with what I'm seeing in the program.
Thank you for that info.
Not sure which AV players are available for the Mac, but QT Player has several issues with gamma and color (more so, when on a PC, but still there on Mac's). There are several threads on this forum, and a few on the CS 4 & Before forum, on QT Player and the gamma/color issues, with a few solutions, or workarounds.
How do i find the forum that you are refering to? Are there any media players for the mac that will give me a more accurate playback.
Google search: Adobe quicktime gamma
(If you preface a web search with 'Adobe',
you are more likely to get returns from Adobe forums.)
in comparison to how the look in the program?
You really can't use Premiere Pro's built-in monitors to judge the quality of the video signal, nor a computer monitor or software player. You have to get the video off the computer and onto a calibrated TV. It's the only way to be sure you're seeing the video signal as accurately as possible, and until you know that, there's no way to know if there's actually a problem.
