I'm posting this in both the AE and Premiere Pro Forums
I was working on clip in Pr Pro, sent it over to AE to do some color correcting. Normally when I have the 2 programs open, one is on my Apple Cinema Display monitor and the other is on my old HP monitor, so I expect to see some color differences. However, by chance I had both on the apple monitor and noticed that there was a color/luminance difference of the same exact clip on the different programs.
Which Program is displaying the true colors????????
Which program should I use to make my coloring decisions?
Should it be the program that will be doing the final render once the project is complete??
Is there a way to make the 2 programs uniform????
Lastly, if I choose a color management in AE project settings, should it be my monitor, NONE, or what? This color management issue is very confusing with so many different choices.
You guys (Adobe) need to simplify this.
I'm using CS4 on a Mac OS 10.5.8.
I second the request--I know that getting TRUE color representation on a computer monitor is very hard, if not totally impossible, and that we really need to use a real reference monitor, but for those of us who cannot afford a proper reference monitor, it would be very nice to have some better color management options built into Premiere for getting our computer screens properly calibrated... I think I'll post a feature request! :-)
