Color correction should be done on a properly calibrated external monitor, not on a computer monitor. In addition, why not use Color Finesse in PR?
Hey Harm, thanks for your quick reply. I agree that under ideal circumstances you should use an external monitor, only I don't think the problem will be solved by that. I think if there's a fundamental difference in how premiere handles colors (by using apple's native RGB while PS uses adobe RGB) that difference will still be there on a external monitor. And for my work it's very important I can work quick and mobile, my main delivery is the internet, so I don't even really care if the colors wouldn't fit the PAL (601) or NTSC (or HDTV) limitations.
I just did some further color correction, and I found a workflow in premiere that resembles the picture in photoshop quite accurately, bu the deep reds are really cut off and can't be recovered, no matter what I do. Another disadvantage ir that I have to increase contrast substantially, what makes noise slightly more noticable.
Thanks for your help!

Exactly what will be your Web-based delivery scheme - format, size, etc.?
How accurately do you think that your audience's computer monitors will display this Web-based delivery?
Hey Hunt, I upload in HD and I hope my viewers will try to watch what I make under best circumstances. I'm aware that my MBP matte screen shows much more detail and color finesse then the average PC monitor (my videos actually look better sometimes on those, because glossy and other screens tend to oversaturate and make compression artifacting less noticable). You can find many of my videos here: www.muziektelevisie.nl . Go to the news section for an overview and to the filmography page for background information
The video I'm working on rigth now (and where this is all about) should be up tomorrow probably!
Thank you for the info and for the link. Will follow that. Also, it seems that you have taken the viewers' equipment into consideration. I was just worried that you might not have.
