    Which color models do Premiere Pro and After Effects use?

    georgrabengruber

      hello,

       

      I had a problem with a psd-file that I used in Premiere and AE: when I imported the AE-composition with the mentioned psd-file into my Premiere-sequence, where the psd-file was also used, the color of my psd-file looked different. It seemed that the two "instances" of my psd-file did use different color models.

       

      On the Adobe-help-page I found an entry with the following info: "... After Effects works with the RGB (red, green, blue) color model. AdobePremiere Pro, however, works with the YUV color model. When you work with a dynamically linked composition, Adobe Premiere Pro either converts it to YUV or retains the RGB colors, depending on the output format." (http://help.adobe.com/en_US/premierepro/cs/using/WSbaf9cd7d26a2eabf53ab041041081290f-7fe8. html)

       

      BUT: I found another entry in which it says that "... Premiere internally works with  RGB..." (http://help.adobe.com/en_US/premierepro/cs/using/WS6693F22C-C06E-431a-A634-62343C65BA7B.ht ml#WSbaf9cd7d26a2eabf53ab041041081290f-7fbb)

       

      Can somebody help me?
