    H.264 Magenta (color) Shift on Export

    cheapsils

      The details:

      MBP 17" i7 Quad core (2011)

      Adobe Premiere 5.5.2

      AVCHD 1080p/24 "FX" 24mbps from an FS100

       

      The problem: I've made slight color adjustments to some interviews I shot to get the skintones spot on, but when I export using the "h.264" preset, I get a weird magenta shift. Screenshot below.

       

      Screen Shot 2012-03-17 at 12.30.27 PM.png The top left image is the "correct" color, which is an h.264 exported with the Quicktime wrapper. However, the compression sucks using this method! It looks terrible and the files are larger. The bottom left image uses the h.264 preset, which resolution-wise looks great, but what is going on with this magenta shift!

       

      Have to deliver to a client soon, would love help/answers/solutions/tips.

       

      Thanks,
