I'm having an issue with XDCAM EX footage in AE and PP CS5 after the install of the trial of AE CS5.5. QuickTime displays the files correctly, but in AE and PP the footage have a drastic gamma shift and the image is really dark. I've uninstalled CS5.5 but no change. This is the second machine that this has happened on, and I can't remember how I fixed it the last time.
-Edit: the footage is in QuickTime wrapper and looks fine in Final Cut 7. this seems to be localized to AE & PP
Confirmed on second machine that hasn't had CS5.5 on it. I am completely at a loss as to how to fix it. Applying a Color workspace (sRGB) doesn't fix it and Linearizing the color space makes it far worse. Really need some help here.
Make sure that you've downloaded the latest XDCam tools from Sony. Older drivers had a serious Gamma issue. I haven't had a problem for several months now.
hey Rick. I tried that but no go. I made sure to uninstall all XDCAM software and codecs, then reinstalled them from the latest software. the issue remained though. is it possible that Adobe products are using a different codec than the one that's installed from Sony? if so, where would I find that?
