You're best option is to not use QuickTime.
Thank you, but I do not understand your answer. I am exporting from premier, the clip is in H.264 format given in the option window for export media in premier and it adds gamma to my shots making them useless. Are you saying not to export in H.264. The only answer I have so far is to export a no compression raw file to quicktime pro and then export from there to not have the gamma added. By removing the quicktime pro option I am at a loss as how to export from premier with out the added Gamma to my shots.
I don't believe PP is changing the gamma. The bug is with the QuickTime format (.mov) and player. So...don't use them.
Thanks again, I must be so stupid but I still not sure what your saying, are you asking me to not export h.264 in premier?
This is the post I placed in the DLF Australia (Im a long time member) about my issue, the response was that its known and no real direct answer has come from it so I thought to refer to Adobe. The real issue is I never used quicktime before now -as I had to get the video to client as clean as possible so not to loose my industry credentials.
Hi Guys and Gals!!
I have this strange effect when exporting from premier6 into MPG, H.264 or AVI. Below is two links to images of the premier footage and the Export for reference.
The export seems to make it dull and lowers contrast with out any use of effect while in the viewer of the footage its clean and crisp blacks. I am using Windows and after extensive googling I still not toat's sure why it happens. I tried the quicktime changes suggested and such on google but its not very precise and i never use it in exporting- its driving me nuts as to why?? And what to do??
Just checking on what you said ...are you exporting using the Quicktime format with the H264 codec (eg XXX.mov)
or the H264 format using (eg XXX.mp4)
Do a test what ever and compare both.but ...FWIW...I have no issue with H264 (mp4) and never use the QT (.mov) because that where the issue shows.
hi, yes H.264 is the export choice I am discussing and yes I have exported multiple types over the range of options to find the best result. with mpeg as to be the safest option in exporting to get the best colour result. I have and try to avoid .mov's for multiple reasons including compatability issues with my own technical spec's on delivery items.
Checked the drop box links
What do the scopes tell you in Premiere?
What do scopes in another facilty tell you with the same exported clip
Where does VLC player fit into this pipeline?
Is this broadcast material?
FWIW I trust the scopes in Premiere in my NLE thru to Broadcast pipeline implicitly.
Thanks again, yes if I use windows media player it has a better colour result than VLC?!?. Broadcast is for web and this application in most of the work I do is played through websites, mainly corporate. If you can advise me on the best way to deliver video for use on the net that will keep colour integrety I will be extreamly gratefull.
Start off a test procedure using Color Bars (Premiere Pro synthetic bars clip).
Use scopes to follow the workflow.
eg export something with bars then re import it to play alongside the sequence.
