    power point issues

    christopherm46014909 Level 1

      I have been having problems with a Power Point export (MP4) when imported into Premier Pro. Basically cars coloured red have been turning orange. When I view the original file outside Premier, the car is definitely red. Has anyone else ever come across this problem and is there a way of correcting it.

          Is the color space of the original media for the Powerpoint RGB?

          If it is CMYK, see here:

            PeruBob has an excellent point ... also ...


            PrPro works in sRGB/Rec 709, the general standard for broadcast video. It will to the best of its ability show things within its own monitors accurately within that space.


            Is your monitor a 'native' sRGB monitor, or perhaps one of the P3 wide-gamut rigs that ship with a lot of the new Macs? Sadly, that OS isn't setup to allow easy calibration of the monitor for Rec709 viewing, at least from what many here have posted.

              I think I’ve worked it out. I failed to mention something critical in my message which was that the ppt graphics were produced with a pink key. Most things key amazingly well using Ultra Key but of course anything with degrees of red can be a problem. Only just worked it out. Thanks for responding though.
