I have 2 admin accounts on a Mac using CS4, OS 10.5.8
I normally log into my ARTs Admin Account when I plan to do work in Premiere and After Effects.
However today by accident I opened a Premiere Project with AE linked comps that I am currently working on in the other Admin Account. The the brightness of the project was much much darker than in the Arts Admin Account. Sure enough when I re-logged in to my Arts Admin acccount and opened the project it was the brightness/color that I am used to seeing. What could possibly be the cause of this. I would like my projects to look that same on MY computer monitor no matter which account I log into. It also made me wonder which brightness/color is the most correct interpretation of my projects. Maybe I've been looking at the wrong brightness all the long.
I had posted about calibrating my monitor before and wonder if I did something that would make the color different in the 2 accounts.
I haven't got a chance yet to purchase any Spyder or other calibration products.
Is it possible that the monitor profile assigned in the "color" tab of the OS's displays preferences is different in the two accounts?
That was the first thing that I checked and they are both assigned to the same profile. Someone recommended that one of the accounts could be doing a gamma shift. I will read up on that to see if I can figure it out.
