Am I really the only one with this issue!?!?
Well I have not got that issue...if thats anyway reassuring to you.
I just tried exports using both the H.264 preset (creating an mp4 file) and using H.264 in a QuickTime container, in both cases using default settings. I then brought both into Premiere Pro and compared them by overlaying them and using the DIfference blending mode. The only differences that I saw were in details because of somewhat different compression artifacts, but no differences in color.
Please post a screenshot of your export settings. There may be something different in your settings.
I'll post a screenshot tomorrow morning when I'm in the office. I'm interested in what setting would shift the hue on export...
I'm going to try a few things.
First, send the project through After Effects and see if the issue persists.
Second, transcode (some) of the media to a different format and run through the same process.
Third, attempt an x264 transcode of some kind
Fourth, run the h264 export as 2 pass VBR (friend on twitter said it might fix the issue)
I'm totally surprised by this issue. Either I'm totally oblivious, or this is a new problem....
I've tried with AVCHD media, too, and I don't get the color shift.
If you put a sample clip somewhere where I can download it, then I'll try with your media to see if I can reproduce the problem.
I'll try to figure something out. These are interview takes, 2GB a piece, I'll see what I can do.
I am going to guess its your player. QT player is known to do weird things. Try watching it back in VLC. Let us know how that goes. I actually can't see that much if any difference in your images.
You will want to do a compare with scopes or difference hue from the export to the source to really know if it is doing something.
