Fix wrong colors in MP4 0-255 files
PrPro/AE interprets wrong color space when import MP4 0-255 8 bit files. Specifically it happens with Lumix GH4/GH5/G7 etc. cameras. This bug appears in each version of adobe products. Look at https://forums.adobe.com/message/10289914

Using a Lumix G9, just changed over from Vegas to Premiere and after filming a nicely dark shot with keylights, noticed my reds are faded and blacks not so black anymore. This happens on import, seems Premiere auto-adds a "Full to Legal Range" modifier, or simply misidentifies it. Monitor NVIDIA setting is set to Full Range 0-255.
It's on already on the timeline as the reds/blacks are already adjusted- as represented by the accompaning screenshot. Kind of disappointing, as I'm working for MSI (colors are red and black) and just finished a Youtube video on Premiere benchmarks as well as a new one using CUDA and GTX 1660Ti/ RTX 2070 Super. Can this be fixed quickly, please?
I'm having the same issue. This is a huge pain and needs to be fixed immediately.

My workflow has been ruined because of this error. I’ve had to do bizarre round trips to after effects to get it to interpret the footage correctly and consistently. It was a7sii h264 slog footage in my case. This is a killer. Would love to keep using premiere but will have to switch to final cut if this isn’t fixed soon.

I second this. It's happening to random clips on an import from a 5D3 in Premiere 12.1.2. Import ten files, some display correct full range, some clip ******* whites and blacks and can't be recovered with lumetri.
The craziest part is the display range can change overnight. Re-imported everything, it all looked fine, then this morning, it's all crushed.
It's seemingly random, and that just is no good.
