Advice would be much appreciated on this!
I exported a 2 minute scene from a 1080 ProRes HQ timeline, and made it into the same ProRes HQ 1080 file. Filters had been applied and rendered out fully in the timeline.
It's pretty obvious that the new file, when played back, has a contrast and saturation shift. The shadows were bought up and are slightly milky/more grainy, and the color has faded slightly. I assume this is pretty common when dealing with FCP. Is there a known fix or am I doing something wrong? Why would the codec-matching exported file not look exactly the same as my timeline footage?
I read some other posts about this issue on different boards but didn't see a solution. If its been answered here, I haven't found it yet.
